Have you ever felt alone and unloved?
Have you ever felt rejected by friends? Coworkers? A family member?
All of us have felt that way at some point. But what if that isolation lasted for years and you saw no way out?
On our Focus on the Family Broadcast “A Man Called Norman,” we’re airing a timeless message about friendship, hope, and love, even in a hopelessly lonely situation.
If you’ve not heard it, or if you’re new to Focus on the Family, allow me to briefly introduce this program to you. “A Man Called Norman” is one of our all-time most requested programs. Since it first aired in 1984, we’ve sent out over 40-thousand copies on cassette, CD, and audio download.
I’m amazed by the response we hear from all around the world when they hear Mike Adkins’ story of how he became the hands and feet of Jesus to a crotchety old neighbor who was the outcast hermit of the neighborhood. Hear what happened when Mike showed him the love of Christ. We’ll also have a unique twist for you at the end of this airing.
If you are struggling with isolation and loneliness, Focus on the Family is here for you. Please give our counselors a call. They’d love to pray with you over the phone, encourage you in your walk with the Lord, and offer you a free consultation. Our number is 800-A-FAMILY (232-6459).
I’d also like to offer you a copy of this inspirational story of love and friendship for a gift of any amount. Call or visit our website.
