Nebraska Tornado Update - Farmers in Need of Volunteers to Walk Their Fields to Clean up Debris Print E-mail
Desk Around 3:45 p.m. on Monday, June 16th, a double vortex tornado ripped through the small town of Pilger, Nebraska. Thanks to your generous donations, on Thursday morning, June 19th, LCC President Tim Hetzner was able to deliver both cash donations and gift cards to Pastor Makelin of St. John's Lutheran Church in Pilger, Nebraska.

DonationsThe people affected by the tornadoes that devastated the Pilger area are in desperate need of help. Lutheran Church Charities is enlisting and registering volunteers to come to Nebraska over the next 2-4 weeks to help the farmers walk their fields (Mercy Walks) to clean up the debris left by the tornadoes.

 

Girl with DogBecause of the tornadoes and the scope of the damage through the fields of Nebraska, much debris has been scattered throughout the fields. It is critical that the debris is cleaned up before the corn grows too high for the debris to be seen. If the debris is left on the fields it poses problems for the farmers when harvesting as it will get into their machinery and damage their expensive equipment. Many of the farmers also had personal loss of cattle, homes, barns and equipment.

Communion Each volunteer team is responsible in providing their own lodging, transportation and meals. If you would like to put together a team or yourself to come out and volunteer, please fill out a volunteer form (see links below). Thank you for your consideration in helping our neighbors in Nebraska.

This week, LCC received the following request from Pastor Hicham Chehab of Salam Christian Fellowship:
An Iranian Refugee who was wounded and her face mutilated in the Iraqi-Iranian war needs financial help to receive plastic surgery for her face. Her mutilated face made her resort to isolation from the community, which led to a severe depression. The cost is $4000. Please show the love of Christ by helping this woman get back to normal life.

LCC President Tim Hetzner meets with President James Cerdenola, President of the Lutheran Church in the Philippines Print E-mail
Lutheran Church of the Philippines Lutheran Church Charities has already given $20,000 to President James Cerdenola to help families still suffering from Super Typhoon Haiyan in November 2013. This past Friday, June 6th, LCC continues to provide support to our partners in the Philippines and here presents him with another $10,000 check to help families.

Although things are improving, much more work still needs to be done in helping families, many who just recently got electricity. In addition, to help families, LCC is raising funds to help the Pastors in the Philippines who are also suffering because of the conditions there. Many of the pastors live on the equivalent of $50 US dollars a month - with NO MEDICAL coverage. (click here to see video)

Please consider helping these servants and their families continue to serve those who are in need.
