Kare-9 Dog A message from Tim Hetzner

I recently presented at the NID Pastors conference about the Kare-9 Ministry to Military, Veterans, and their families. Our experience has shown that Veterans will help Veterans and reach out to them. LCC receives connections with many unchurched Military and Veterans and we want to connect them, both to assist them but also to bring the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to them and help enfold them into your congregation.

I am asking for contact information on the Military and Veterans in your congregation in order to develop a database for outreach to other Veterans, Active Duty and Military families that are unchurched in your area.This database would serve as a means for the LCC Kare-9 Military Ministry to reach out to and help Veterans, those who are currently serving, and their families with the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ. Additionally, the Kare-9 Military Ministry will use the database to enlist volunteers to work at the congregational and community levels to serve. To be added to this database CLICK HERE.

We have put together a handout as well as a bulletin insert that can be printed and distributed at your church. We have also put together a Word document with two versions of an announcement for bulletins and newsletters.

Help Laurie, Ella and Hayden Cross the Finish Line!! Print E-mail
family in need Last year, at the request of Pastor Warren Schilf, Immanuel Lutheran Church, Palatine, IL, we told you the story of Laurie Wavrunek and her two children who are battling a combination of illnesses (Lyme disease, mold allergies and others) that has all but paralyzed the family. Your generous donations have helped them deal with the very expensive and difficult treatments they are undergoing in Florida. But their commitment to save their lives cost them over $300,000 in 2013 and more again in 2014. Click here for an update on their story. Your prayers and donations would again be appreciated.

Remember that for donations like this 100% of every dollar you contribute to their cause goes to their cause (through their church).

Two Families Who Lost Their Homes In April 9th Tornado Print E-mail
couple Ruben (Pete) and Lily May Capes were celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary with family in Rockford when the tornado tore through their farm, totally destroying their home and many out buildings. Long-time members of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Rochelle pastored by Rev. Greg Hoffmann, they are both devastated by the loss. More devastating is the fact that at this time in their history together they have to rebuild their lives.

Your financial help for them at this critical time would be appreciated DONATE HERE.

Cline Family Pastor David Yarrington of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Lindenwood, Illinois provided information about another family devastated by the April 9 tornado. The Cline family of Fairdale, Illinois, long-time members of Immanuel Lutheran Church, lost their home in the tornado that swept through Northern Illinois. The family, including parents Wayne and Peggy and their son Brian, required immediate medical attention and hospital stays for mild injuries which compounded existing medical conditions. Since the Clines are immobile and injured, their daughter Julie is managing their finances for them. Please continue to pray for her as she has many tasks ahead of her that will require strength and resolve.

Please consider financial contributions to help the Cline family, CLICK HERE.

Haitian Seminary Needs Mattresses Print E-mail
Seminary The Lutheran Seminary in Haiti has students come from all over that island nation. The seminary and the headquarters of the church are at Leogane, but students come from 9 different districts (states). The distances range from 30 miles between Port-au-Prince and Leogane to more than 300 miles from Leogane to Jeremie. So only those who are living nearby go home to sleep, students who live further away have to “make-do”.

The seminary is asking for 80 mattresses to accommodate the students who live further away. Each mattress costs about $70 US. When the seminary is not in session, the mattresses will be used for those attending meetings, conferences, and youth gatherings scheduled at the headquarters of the Lutheran Church in Haiti.

To help donate towards new mattresses for the Lutheran Seminary CLICK HERE
