St. Matthew in Need of Handicap Ramp to Help Spread the Word of God Print E-mail
Pastor Loza Request from Pastor Julio Loza of St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Chicago, Illinois

On Wednesday, October 8, LCC received the following request from Pastor Loza:

About 10 years ago we found Jose Sanchez sleeping nights at the side entrance of a house. We invited him to El Comedor Popular Soup Kitchen and eventually he stayed at St. Matthew's Center to live and help the soup kitchen volunteers serve the hot meals to the hungry. With time I noticed a strong smell and I advised him to see a doctor. He failed to listen and I called an ambulance.

At Stroger Hospital the doctors let him know that he had an advanced case of diabetes. They gave him a choice: either cut off the damaged leg or he would go home and die. He chose to have his leg cut off. The doctors advised him to quit drinking alcohol or else he would also loose the other leg. Because he did not listen, eventually his other leg was also cut off.

Jose is now in a wheelchair and lives in a different location. Since he does not qualify for special aid, he makes a living by selling chewing gum and other items on the streets of Chicago. He does come to St. Matthew toeat once in a while. We need a special ramp for Jose and other handicapped people who use a wheelchair to come to the Soup Kitchen or to worship at St Matthew.

We ask for your prayers that Jose may remain within the Christian faith and receive God's mercy and guidance to continue survival on the streets of Chicago.

LCC is assisting St Mathew to find volunteers to build the ramp and to raise money to cover the cost of supplies for building the ramp. Donate toward the purchase of supplies to build the ramp for St Matthew

Help Families in Need

Over the past couple of months, several requests for vehicles have come to LCC that we have not been able to fulfill. We are making a special appeal for vehicle donations. If you have a vehicle you're no longer using and would like to make a charitable donation, please contact our office. LCC credits you full Kelley Blue Book value for your donation.
