Church Leader Goes On Glamorous Month-Long Trip, Wife Tweets Pics


New Zealand church leader Brian Tamaki and his wife Hannah have taken a month-long glamorous vacation, which Hannah has shared on social media.

Their trip has included 14 flights, gambling in Las Vegas, a "penthouse suite" at the Diplomat Resort & Spa in Miami, resorts in Greece (with family members), and visits to Los Angeles and Atlanta, reports the Sunday Star Times.

The couple also spent time in Dubai, UAE, which is notorious for human rights abuses, notes Human Rights Watch.

Brian is the founder and the bishop of Destiny Church in Auckland, New Zealand, where churchgoers tithe money, but it's not clear if those donations funded the trip.

Hannah tweeted on Sept. 5 from Greece: "Santorini.. Another beautiful day. Arrived at 7am.. Amazing History."

On Sept. 10, Hannah tweeted: "The white night crews.. Miami with loads of great people.."

Hannah tweeted a picture of herself and Brian on a boat on Sept. 18 with the caption: "All aboard.. We're on.. See you in the morning. Church it's going to be awesome.."

Hannah reported posted on her Facebook page: "15 hrs in the air.. Yup the longest flight ever. Getting an up grade to first Class on Emirates was the best.. PJ's slippers..watched 4 movies.. Nice snacks on request was more tired than hungry. Compfy sleep."

A Destiny Church spokesperson told the Sunday Star Times that he didn't have any details about the private trip.

NZ Herald News reported in December 2014 that the Destiny Church received notices for the late tax filings for 14 church-affiliated charities, six of which had $5.5 million in total donations.
