WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Marty Leipowitz is homeless and now works at Westgate Tabernacle.
"I do a lot of painting here, if i have to take the trash out, i do it," said Leiopoitz.
The church was supposed to be auctioned off tomorrow, but today they learned the auction has been postponed.
"It would have been a loss, a lot of people depend on this with getting the food and clothing," said Leipoitz.
The church is currently 150 thousand dollars in debt. Attorney's from both debtors agreed to delay the auction..
"Right now by the grace of God, someone said let God be with you, you don't have to worry," said Ronnie Green.
Bishop Ronnie Green has seen a lot of change in two years. He says the facility was in a disarray before he arrived.
He's now changing the look at Westgate Tabernacle. There are new bunk beds, re-modeled bathrooms, and more staff to take care of the facility..
"i just don't believe in people sleeping on the ground, and putting them back on the ground, if you want someone to feel good, you pick them up off the floor," said Ronnie Green.
Green now has 6 months to pay off the debt. And for six more months, Marty will have a job.
"That's going to be a relief, like I said, you see the people coming to eat, and now we'll still live to help people," said Marty.
