How it all started...
Luke Wrobleski started the Love Your Neighbor team when he got a few people together, loaded up a truck with fence supplies and fixed fences after they were blown down by the 100+ mph winds in January, 2017.
Soon after, he realized he was in a position to use the gifts God has given him to reach out and bless others.
The Love Your Neighbor (LYN) team initially worked on projects for homeowners that could not afford to hire a trade specialist. The team has built a deck, a wheelchair ramp, remodeled a kitchen, fixed fences, pulled weeds, installed stoves, washers and dryers, delivered dressers and even replaced a vehicle radiator.
The LYN team is made up of volunteers with specialties in many different areas as well as those that are just willing to show up and help as needed.
In mid-2018, the team started to make bunk beds for kids in El Paso County.
It quickly became apparent that this should be the primary focus for the LYN team. Partnering with CarePortal to find kids that need a bed to sleep in, LYN is regularly building, delivering and assembling bunk beds for the kids that need them most.

“When my passion for God, for others and for woodworking all come together, it makes my heart so happy.” Luke shares about the Love Your Neighbor trip to Mexico!
Luke shares some really exciting things that happened with Love Your Neighbor in 2021, and takes us back to where it all began.
Our Love Your Neighbor team got to spend 10 days in Uganda with The Remnant Generation, setting up a woodshop and teaching basic woodworking skills!
The Love Your Neighbor team is heading to Uganda! Here’s what they’ll be up to and here’s how you can support them.
Because of your generosity, 55 more kids will have a brand new mattress to sleep on!
We just finished our first mentorship woodshop program with students from Pikes Peak Academy High School!
CarePortal picked YOU as the 2020 CarePortal Church of the Year! You are known as the people that aren’t afraid to step up and choose to love your neighbors on a regular basis.
It was amazing to see everyone come together and support this year’s LYN Bedding Drive! What a great opportunity we have to help the very kids that our Heavenly Father loves so much.
When we donate to something, we don’t always get to see the ripple effect that our money has and how God uses our giving. So we are excited to share with how we are using your money you gave to the Christmas Offering for the Love Your Neighbor and CarePortal teams.
Pulpit Rock, it’s time we celebrate! We have just hit some crazy big, God-sized milestones with our Love Your Neighbor team and bunkbed project. This is what happens when you listen to your hearts. You listen and follow where God is leading you. You are literally the hands and feet of Jesus right here in Colorado Springs.

From the team
Every bunk bed we make is branded with something we hope rings true in every kid’s heart for a long time. The words “You are seen. You are known. You are loved.” are branded on each slat under the mattress. Some of the kids come from very rough situations – we are happy to be a small part in God’s bigger story for their lives. We don’t think kids will sleep on the floor in Heaven. We don’t think they should have to sleep on the floor here either.
