LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Help Bring Healing to Teens Grieving After Loss Print E-mail
 St. John's On Sunday evening, July 6, the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Angel (in-training), Bekah (Immanuel, Belvidere), Dora (in-training), Kye (Immanuel, Belvidere), Lily (in-training), Luther (LCC), Mercy (in-training), Susie (St. Peter, Arlington Heights), Tara (LCC), and Zippy (Trinity, Roselle) were at a special youth service at St. John's Lutheran Church in Lombard, Illinois.

On Thursday, July 3, 16-year-old Lija Hyssong, a member at St John's and UKANDU Chicago participant, was called home to Jesus. The Sunday evening service, led by Pastor Pete Imlah, was a time of healing through sharing stories, laughing and crying together, and singing some songs. The theme song from last week's UKANDU Chicago trip was "Lift My Life Up" by Unspoken. The lyrics of this song are incredible, and speak to Lija's life and faith.

Eddie and his handlers, Don and Connie Moeller, talked about how they shared the mercy and compassion of Jesus Christ to Pilger and the surrounding areas after the storm that struck there two weeks ago.

The Pilger area was devastated by a twin vortex storm system on Monday, June 16. There is currently work still being done in the fields to help farmers remove debris before the crops grow too high.

Immediate Help Needed for Gardeners to Help with Manna Garden and Help Provide Vegetables for Those in Need Print E-mail
Manna Gardens The Manna Garden Initiative is a faith-based movement to engage, equip, educate and connect individuals, organizations and churches passion about addressing food needs in our community to transform people's lives.

Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Waukegan, Illinois, a site of one of the Manna Garden Initiative gardens, needs help in maintaining and managing a variety of vegetable beds in its community garden.

Within the next two weeks (now through July 5) volunteers are needed to thin, weed and do other general garden maintenance.

Lake County is the wealthiest county in Illinois and the 27th wealthiest in the United States. However, amongst all this wealth sits one of the largest poverty areas in the Chicago metro area.

10.2 percent (approximately 71,000) of families are low income. 19,600 children live below the poverty line. In 2011, the child poverty rate was 16.2 percent, which is an increase from 10.1 percent in 2009. In 2010, the child food insecurity rate was 19.1 percent.

The produce from these gardens goes to provide fresh produce for these poverty stricken families in Lake County.

The work starts at 10 a.m. Monday-Saturday. Volunteers are welcome to come for as long as they are able and to do as much work as they are able.

You will need to supply basic gardening tools such as a shovel, trowel, hoe, gloves, etc.

If you are interested in helping out please register to volunteer by following the "Register to Volunteer" link below.

You can't help everyone but you can help someone.
