Love Stories

 

Please allow us to introduce you to some of the unforgettable individuals recently helped by Love INC volunteers. We believe your heart will be touched, as was ours, when we learned of their situation. It is a blessing to be part of a ministry that can help congregations minister and give assistance to people like these.


KAREN

Karen has multiple sclerosis and significant vision loss due to Coats’ disease, came to Love INC several months ago when she was forced by the NCDOT to relocate.  They assisted her in buying a  new home but denied her request for a ramp as she is dependent upon a cane/walker. 

A group from Lake Forest Church stepped up and not only built a ramp for Karen but visited with her, planted flowers in the yard and continued a
friendship with her long after the work was done.  She wanted to “give back” and has volunteered as one of our Telephone Reassurance Ministry callers.  In Karen’s own words, “To God be the glory for all that He has done!”

 


JUDY

Judy is retired and deals with post-polio syndrome.   As a result, she was isolated from family and friends.  A group from Mount Zion United Methodist Church “adopted” her to help  with many daily challenges. 

As they built a relationship with her, she began to feel the love of Christ and has recently become an  active member of their congregation. 


PETER

Peter, who is paralyzed on his right side due to a stroke, became a client in November 2010 when he was referred to us by Disability Rights and
Resources.  He is always a very happy man who loves the Lord, enjoys people and embraces life.

Volunteer groups from Mulberry Baptist Youth, Charlotte Heart Work Camp, and Johnson Control have provided help for him including house cleaning and major home repair.  One of our volunteers, Charlie and his family, have adopted Peter.  They minister in so many areas of his life including praying with him and inviting him out to dinner.

 


DELORES

Dolores needed help recently after she moved to Charlotte.  A home group from Forest Hill Church "adopted" her and that was the beginning of a mutual love for each other. 

They clean, take her out socially, help with her shopping and stay connected with her through visits and phone calls.   The children of the team members often visit her.  She says this experience has been a wonderful blessing for her.
