TUCSON, AZ (May 6, 2021) — Nearly twenty Family Life Radio (FLR) listeners helped supply the needs of others through the Love Your Neighbor campaign. Appliances, gas cards and more were provided as part of this annual event that encourages supporting and loving others as Jesus did.
FLR aired calls from listeners nominating their neighbors who had made an impact on their lives, but who were also in need of a blessing. Members of their own communities, and even those in other states, selflessly stepped in to assist.
Irma in Texas received a makeover with a new wig, and a new refrigerator was given to Debbie in Michigan, both women are battling cancer. Gas cards were given to Enrique in New Mexico who runs a food truck serving hot meals to the homeless. Two listeners from separate states banded together to provide a getaway for Patricia in Texas, who recently lost her husband to COVID.
“To see Family Life Radio listeners rally together across the country to help each other in times of desperation shows a true representation of what Jesus called us to do and that is to love one another,” said Mike Kankelfritz, director of programming for FLR.
“I was so touched by the story of David and Shirley from Georgia who weekly feed over 80 kids in need at their home as part of their Hot Dog Club. We were honored to bless them with a weekend getaway along with new outdoor umbrellas for their backyard picnic tables,” said Sally Barton, chief broadcast engagement officer for FLR.
We ended the campaign with a free virtual concert by Black River Entertainment artist, Josh Wilson, for all our listeners to celebrate what God had done.
