Evangelist Oral Roberts says his ministry has been getting increasingly fewer donations over the past two years and that he must have $11 million by May 6 or face financial collapse.

Creditors will "start dismantling" his ministry and Oral Roberts University if he doesn't get the money. "If we can't make our payroll, I don't know what will happen to this man or this ministry," Roberts said, his voice quivering with emotion."People, this is serious. This is a life-and-death matter," he added.
