Stillwater, OK - "This Was My Best Day Ever!" Print E-mail
”Stillwater, The LCC K-9 Comfort Dog deployment to Stillwater Oklahoma last week was met with the phrase “this was my best day ever”. From students on the OSU campus, to children at Skyline Elementary, Sangre Elementary, Sangre Middle School, and all the way down to the children and staff at the Children’s Hospital of the OU Medical Center, people from all over Stillwater expressed their delight and happiness after being with the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs. The phrase was also shared by a student on Twitter. ”Stillwater,

Last week’s deployment included visits to Stillwater Fire Stations 1 & 2 for a meeting with the Battalion Chief and to thank and pray with first responders for all they do. The team also delivered 12 dozen home baked cookies from Zion Lutheran Church in Stillwater that had invited the Comfort Dogs down one week earlier, including 13 K-9s and their handlers from 5 different states.


Once again, the handlers and ministry helpers touched people’s lives everywhere they went. They lifted the community up in prayer wherever they went. Home visits and hospital visits were accommodated to some of the individuals and families affected by the OSU Homecoming Parade tragedy.

The Comfort Dogs spent a lot of time on the OSU campus meeting students including working with the Campus Ministry of Zion Lutheran. The team was also invited to participate in a service fraternity meeting of Alpha Phi Omega.


The week did not end in Stillwater as teams visited schools in Mulhall and Edmond Oklahoma on their way back home. God is Good!

Stillwater: Still Loyal, Still True Print E-mail
”Stillwater" “Without Stillwater, Oklahoma State would not be what it is today,” Jimmy Hutson – Homecoming Executive Director

Stillwater is like and not like many communities with major universities. Stillwater is however Oklahoma State University (OSU). The “Sea of Orange Parade” is clearly in the DNA of Stillwater and OSU for the past 102 years. This year over 80,000 participated in the homecoming celebration. Tragically at 10:30 am the day was marred with 4 dead and 44 injured after a car was driven into the crowd. The tragedy touched lives throughout Stillwater and ”Stillwater"surrounding communities and in the days following it was clear to Pastor Frank Kinast of Zion Lutheran in Stillwater, Zion Trustee Mike Sturzenbecker and Mike’s wife Sarah a teacher at Skyline Elementary, that help was needed for those who witnessed and suffered loss. They reached out and asked for a visit from the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs. Mike is part of the Oklahoma District disaster response team and was familiar with the Comfort Dogs work.

Within 48 hours 13 K-9 teams and 12 ministry helpers from 5 states arrived in Stillwater and began working in the community. Their first stop was Skyline Elementary. Skyline is a school of 550 students and many had been in attendance for the homecoming parade. Others have parents who were police and firefighters or who had worked in the hospital. Some lost friends. The K-9’s had an incredible impact on the kids and the staff. Instant smiles, lots of questions, and lots of love.

”Stillwater" The rest of the week the team will be at Sangre Ridge Elementary another school with many close connections to the tragedy, a campus visit to OSU, meeting with campus ministry students at Zion Lutheran, hospital visits in Stillwater and Oklahoma City, visits with first responders and many other stops along the way.

Your prayers are needed as the community searches to heal both physically and emotionally.

Michigan Pastor Requires Assistance for Critical Surgery – UPDATE Print E-mail
Richard Tino In July, LCC received a request from Rev. Dr. James Tino (Global Lutheran Outreach) regarding his cousin Rev. Richard Tino (Peace Lutheran Church, Sandusky, MI) in need of an operation that his insurance will not cover. He inhaled a large quantity of smoke over 20 years ago while serving as a volunteer fireman and as a result, suffers from lung problems.

To read the original appeal, CLICK HERE

On Wednesday, October 28th, LCC received the following email from Rev. Richard Tino:

I had my first successful operation on my lungs last Wednesday, October 21st. I am scheduled for the remaining two operations in 3 week intervals, around November 11 and December 2. The doctor said the first procedure went very well, and that based on what he saw in my lungs, inflamed airways, he expects to see very positive results from these three procedures. The finances have been a bit frustrating, as the hospital keeps raising and lowering their estimate. The final price is $24,000.00. Through Lutheran Church Charities and other donors we have raised $15,000.00! I am paying as I go, roughly $8,000.00 per operation.

Please pray for Rev. Tino and consider gifting to his Medical Expense Fund. CLICK HERE to gift

Comfort Dogs Deploy to Pontiac Township High School Following Sudden Death of School Nurse Print E-mail
”Pontiac November 1, the principal of Pontiac Township High School informed the staff and students of the untimely death of a loved and respected school nurse. He also requested a visit from LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs. Staff and students were greeted by veteran Comfort Dogs Bekah (Immanuel Lutheran Church and School, Belvidere, IL), Kye (Immanuel Lutheran Church and School, Belvidere, IL), Barnabus (Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Portage, IN), Angel (St. John's Lutheran, La Grange, Illinois), and Asher (North Shore Lutheran Ministry, Lake Forest, IL), along with LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs-in-Training Rhoda, Sasha, Eve, Naomi and Claudia. As the school day started the Comfort Dogs touched hearts as students and staff tried to understand the loss of this dear friend. Classroom visits and meetings with this golden love definitely helped relief some of the pain being experienced on this beautiful fall day.
