Eureka High School Senior Killed in Auto Accident Print E-mail

LCC Deploys 6 LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs, 8 Handlers and Staff Members to Comfort the High School and the Community

We are called to bring Jesus - his refuge and strength - a very present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1)

high school On Wednesday, January 28 at 7 a.m., LCC received a phone call from the principal at Eureka High School in Eureka, Illinois asking if we could bring the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs to the school today because of the death of one of their students in an auto accident last night. Already more than 40 students had gathered in the library to mourn his passing.

teamBy 10:30 a.m. a team of 6 LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and 8 handlers deployed to Eureka. Central Illinois District president Rev. Mark Miller invited us to work with and through Pastor Joseph Burns and Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Eureka. Since Pastor Burns is ill, Pastor Tom Heren from Our Savior Lutheran Church in Washington, IL will join the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and handlers at the high school. Because of their assistance we will be able to bring the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to the students, faculty, staff and community of Eureka.

Please keep those who have been affected by this heartbreaking tragedy in your prayers, as well as those who are traveling.

LCC never charges those we serve, we rely on those led to help cover the transportation costs. Thank you for your faithful support!

Donated Van is an Answer to Prayer Print E-mail
donated van Chris Dillard (pictured with his wife Amy, a friend’s daughter and Comfort Dog Noah), a member of Zion Lutheran Church, Belleville, Illinois, donated a 1997 GMC Safari van through LCC. Last Saturday (January 24), Rev. Glenn and Sue Nielsen, members of Timothy Lutheran Church in St Louis, Missouri, along with Comfort Dog Noah, picked up the van from the Dillards. The donation was an answer to prayer. Timothy Lutheran Church has a family in need of transportation who will also use the van to provide rides to church, school and Sunday School for other members. Thank you to the Dillards for their generous donation that will provide much needed transportation for so many.

LCC Volunteers Move Entire Warehouse in 2-1/2 Hours! Print E-mail
LCC warehouse Last Saturday, 33 LCC volunteers helped us move materials used in our disaster response deployments into our temporary warehouse space at the St Paul Ministry Center in Aurora. Because of the number of volunteers, we were able to unload 3 semi-trucks in just 2-1/2 hours!

The volunteers came from 15 churches: Cross, Yorkville; Immanuel, Belvidere; St. Peter, Schaumburg; St. John, Wheaton; Peace, Lombard; King of Glory, Elgin; Immanuel, Palatine; Calvary, Elgin; St. John’s, Lombard; St. Luke, Montgomery; St. John’s, LaGrange; St. Peter, Gilberts; Good Shepherd, Elgin; Trinity, Lisle; and St. Peter, Arlington Heights.

Special thanks to St. Paul Lutheran Church, Aurora for lending us the use of warehouse storage space on a temporary basis as we continue to look for new donated space. Additional thanks to Thompson Rentals for the use of 3 pallet jacks for unloading the semi-trailers, and to Boerman Moving and Storage for loaning us a driver plus the use of a semi-tractor to move the 3 semi-trailers from Elgin to Aurora then coming back this week to move the trailers to the loading dock for unloading.

Update from the Haitian Lutheran Mission Project Print E-mail
Haiti With your support we have kept the Haitian Lutheran orphanage open by supplying the children with food, clothes and education in a loving Christian atmosphere. Your support has enabled us to pay 26 village teachers, the teachers in Fond Rouge, reopen the Philadelphia school in the city of Jeremie and through Trinity Hope Lutheran Church provide a daily meal for the children in Dame Marie. Trinity Hope is also able to continue supplying a daily meal in the other schools as well.

The Lutheran Teachers from Philadelphia Lutheran School in Jeremie sent this response in a letter:

"Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,
Peace and God's Grace be with you. We the teachers of the Lutheran Schools in Jeremie, can't find the right words to thank you. THANKS is not the word. But THANK YOU."
Haiti Compared to Lutheran and public school teachers in the United States, Haitian Lutheran School teachers make on average about $45 a month. Often these dedicated teachers continue to carry on even though some months the funds are not there to pay the teachers. When that happens often they are forced to look for secondary jobs just to support their families. Thank you for demonstrating the Lord's love and compassion for these orphans and the people of Haiti through your donations. Donate to Sponsor a Haitian Teacher or Pastor

Challenge Grant from Good Samaritan Ministries for St. Matthew Boiler Fund Print E-mail
Lopez For the last few weeks we have been encouraging donations to the St. Matthew soup kitchen so that they may buy a new boiler. Thanks to Good Samaritan Ministries in Palatine here is even more encouragement. Good Samaritan Ministries is making a matching gift donation to the St. Matthew boiler fund. They will match dollar-for-dollar every donation made to the fund up to $10,000. If we are able to make that match, more than $20,000 will be in the fund, which will allow St. Matthew to replace the boiler and continue in their worship and service to their Chicago community.

Please prayerfully consider a special gift to this matching donation and make the replacement boiler a reality.
