A trip to a Tulsa furniture store has changed the life of Sand Springs couple. Danny and Rita Talbott are the winners of a $50,000 Direct Buy sweepstakes.

The Talbotts visited the showroom last June, and say they didn't remember entering the sweepstakes. The retired missionaries keep busy splitting their time between the Christian Motorcyclist Association and the Patriot Guard Riders.

Rita Talbott says they thank God for their good fortune and plan to share the wealth. “We're going to get to write a good check to our church. We've got a family that we've wanted to help cause the dad's been without work for over a month.”

The Talbotts say the best part is they are now debt free.
