The Pentecostal Holiness Church Extension Loan Fund started by Reverend Robert L. Rex has made a difference in lives across the country. Loan Fund board members say, more than 800 churches have either built, remodeled or refurbished facilities with money borrowed from the fund. And right now, the board is in the process of reviewing loans here in Oklahoma! Board members say, the size of the church doesn't matter. They work with small churches of only 50 to 100 members and churches as large as 14,000 members. And it was all possible because of the bright idea of Reverend Robert L. Rex fifty years ago. For the full story, be sure to watch the featured video clip.

I've been reporting on people in our community who are making a difference for four months now, and I've noticed that it only takes one person to impact thousands of lives. And there are so many Oklahomans who are out there right now helping others in need. And inspiring others to lend a helping hand. If you know one of them send me an email. I'd love to hear about it!
