LCC President Tim Hetzner in Haiti Helping Deliver Aid to Those in Need Print E-mail
Haiti Haiti is a country that has been devastated by poverty. Nearly 60 percent of residents live in dire poverty and do not have access to basic needs.

LCC has been working in Haiti to help bring Christ's compassion and show those suffering the mercy of the Lord.


Today, Tim has been traveling along the Thomonde Central Plateu State in Haiti.

This morning he visited the Tomonde Lutheran church and school. The school was started in 2008 and the church in 2010. The school runs morning and afternoon classes and between the two sessions there are approximately 650 students in attendance. Pastor Marky operates as the head teacher.


Money donated through LCC was given to the church upon arrival.

They do not own the land and worship outside on Sundays as they do not have a church building. The money is to be used to help them purchase the land. We ask that you continue to pray for those involved as they spread the Word of God to those in Haiti.


There are many other areas in Haiti still in need of help please consider helping us continue to serve one of the poorest countries in the world and our brothers and sisters in Christ who daily serve there in caring for those who are still suffering.

Help with the Training of Haitian Seminarians Print E-mail
seminarians LCC is partnering with Trinity Lutheran Church in Urbana to collect funds for the seminary in Haiti to help them with the training of new pastors.

In January 2012, two years after the earthquake, a Lutheran Seminary was dedicated in Haiti.

The goal of the Lutheran Church in Haiti is to train and ordain 50 men for the ministry by the year 2019.

Many of the classes have been taught but additional courses are still needed. The main obstacle to overcome is the expense to gather the men together to train them.

But for only $150.00 per student we can gather these men together for two weeks. That $150.00 includes transportation to the seminary (long bus rides), lodging and food.

During the two weeks they will be in class for 10-12 hours a day and will receive training in four subjects. Please pray for and support these men. The class is scheduled for late January or February. Each sponsor will receive a prayer card with information about the seminarian.

    Facts about the Lutheran Church of Haiti:
  • 80 Lutheran Churches
  • 30 additional preaching Stations
  • 23 Ordained Pastors
  • No Pastors in Haiti receive a salary
  • Currently 47 men in seminary training

We ask that you prayerfully consider helping support the Haitian Lutheran Church in its mission to train new pastors and help spread the Word of God to those in Haiti.

Twelve LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Attend Remembrance Ceremony Print E-mail
Washington 1 One year ago, on November 17, 2013, a tornado tore through the town of Washington, Illinois. A large swath of the town was taken out, including several homes. Just out of the path was Our Savior Lutheran Church. Although the church sustained damage, it was able to set up as a center to help those in need. Through Our Savior, LCC worked to bring the mercy and compassion of Christ Jesus to those in need during this time. Washington 2

On Sunday, November 16, Our Savior held a praise worship service to remember what had happened and to thank God for all He has done in the recovery. Twelve LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs were able to come to the service and help remember with the rest of the Our Savior family.

LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Adeena (St. John, Burlington), Bekah (Immanuel, Belvidere), Chloe (Lord of Life, LaFox), Gracie (Trinity, Davenport), JoJo (Living Christ, Arlington Heights), Kye (Immanuel, Belvidere), Ruthie (LCC), Susie (St. Peter, Arlington Heights), and Comfort Dogs in-training Aaron, Asher, Anna, and Katie made the journey down to Washington, Illinois to attend their special remembrance service.

Washington 3

The service included praise for what God has done to help restore their town, as well as first hand accounts of that day.

After the service a potluck lunch was served to those in attendance. The Comfort Dogs were well received and loved by all. May you continue to keep those in Washington in your thoughts and prayers as they continue with reconstruction a year after the devastating tornado ripped through their town.
