WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

A Wichita church has paid off $2.2 million in medical debt for hundreds of Kansans.

Pathway Church said Monday on Facebook that they sent a special piece of mail on Easter to 1,600 Kansans who fell into a hardship determined by "RIP Medical Debt. 

"We let them know that in Jesus’ name, their medical debt had been forgiven," the post says. "Jesus did the same thing on the cross when He declared “it is finished.” The debt of our sins, that we could not pay, had been forgiven!"
