With the dispute unresolved and desperate for help, Ms. Lee reached out to the radio church family. Within a matter of minutes, calls started pouring in with offers of assistance to keep the lights and heat turned on.
Jeff owns several properties in the East Village and understands the difficulties that some residents face. Jeff and many others volunteered funds to help pay Ms. Lee’s overdue DTE bill.
Joe from Charlotte (near Lansing) who commutes to Detroit and listens faithfully to WMUZ, took the initiative to call DTE and get Ms. Lee signed up on a monthly budget plan for seniors so that her utilities will never be shut off.
Then suddenly, after having called into the Morning Light, we received a text message from April:
Chris! The craziest thing! Well…a complete GODCIDENCE! Ms. Debra Lee, the woman who called this morning during Pay It Forward? I told you she lives right around the block from where I work. Well, she actually lives within walking distance from my building!
Not only that, I work in a nursing care center, and her best friends’ mother was a patient of mine about a year and a half ago. She knows exactly where I work and has visited her friend here! She has since relocated, but thought how amazing it is that God uses certain situations to bring people together.
Thank you for always being there for all of us! You do not know the impact that you have on people like me and Ms. Debra every single day! You are such a blessing and I thank you so much for all the love and support you have for everyone. #RCF #WMUZ #WEAREFAMILY
