UPDATE on Joliet Print E-mail
Joliet Cleanup Early Thursday morning LCC deployed LERT chainsaw teams to help with clean-up in the Joliet area.

On Monday afternoon, Joliet was struck by two microbursts. The sustained winds toppled many trees. While public works did help to clean out some of the damage LERT chainsaw teams were asked to come in and help.

What started out as two jobs quickly became seven. Many people living in the affected are are retired and live on a fixed income of $800 a month and cannot afford to have the downed trees and branches removed professionally.

While the chainsaw teams have been hard at work cleaning up, the area there is work that sill needs to be done. LCC is now looking for cutters and draggers to work this Saturday (8/30) on two large jobs. If you are able to help out in this area please follow the link below and fill out the form to help spread the Mercy and Compassion of Christ Jesus to those in need

Joliet, Illinois in Need of Volunteers After Being Hit by Two Microbursts Print E-mail
Joliet Damage

On Tuesday, August 26, LCC Disaster Response Team members Ed Boerman and Joel Moritz deployed out in a six-block area in Joliet, Illinois, after that neighborhood was hit by a microburst the night before.

Although the public works has cleared most of the streets of fallen trees, some private residents are still in need of removal. LCC is working with Our Savior Lutheran Church in Joliet.

This area of Joliet is impoverished and populated with many retired shut-ins. Most cannot afford to have the trees taken off of their houses or cut up as they do not have insurance.

Chainsaw teams will be be deployed today and this week to assist these residents, who have little or no insurance to cover the removal.

If you have time this week to help, please contact the LCC office at 866-455-6466 or click the link below.

LCC never charges those we serve, so please consider volunteering (chainsaw people or people to haul cut up wood). Thank you for all of your support in bringing the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those who suffer.

Haitian Student in Need of $2500 for Christian Education in the US Print E-mail
Pasor Request from Pastor Tom Acton, Immanuel Lutheran Church, Palatine, Illinois
Immanuel is working with a single mother and her son to find additional financial help for her son to attend Christian Day School at Immanuel.

They have obtained some funding but still need $2,500 to make Christian education a reality. The mother will be joining Immanuel and the son is eager to learn about Jesus Christ.

The family immigrated from Haiti to Florida and recently to the northwest suburbs and have a significant financial need.

Immanuel is assisting the family but the need is greater than the congregation can do alone. Any donations will be such a blessing to this family as they make a new life here.

Mother in Desperate Need of Help to Repair Handicapped Son's Bathroom Print E-mail
Request from Pastor Warren Schlif, Immanuel Lutheran Church, Palatine, Illinois On August 1, LCC received the following email:
Our friend, Aleza Chikko of Schaumburg is in need of repair for her handicapped son's downstairs bathroom. pastor

We met Aleza through our Paint-a-Thon project last year, where we painted the entire exterior of her house. Aleza is no longer married, and continues to care for her 31 year old son Isaac who is mentally handicapped. Aleza has very limited resources financially and does not have the money, nor the ability to make these repairs on her own or even hire a contractor.

Essentially, the downstairs bathroom is in need of great repair, with the bathroom door barely hanging on it's hinges. The lights and the fan are not currently working, and the shower door is completely off its tracks. On top of that, the shower head is leaking continually into the tub.

Aleza is a Christian woman, who has contacted her church home, but they are unable to provide assistance. She has also made numerous calls to her township and other community service organizations with no offers to help.

Aleza is hoping to find someone who might be willing to donate their time and skills to help complete the repairs, or find people who might be willing to donate funds so that she can hire and pay for a contractor to perform the work.

Thanks
Pastor Warren

African Pastor in Need of Car to Continue Spreading the Word of God to African Immigrants Print E-mail
Pastor McClean On July 18, LCC received the following email:
We are looking for a car for Pastor Anthony Nwokeneme. Tony is a pastor to African Immigrants in Indianapolis. He has a call to St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Indianapolis, but they are not able to pay him.

After a long process Pastor Tony is a U.S. Citizen. He completed his vicarage in August, 2012. He was to bring his wife and daughter from Nigeria at the end of 2012, but his wife became ill and died of a brain tumor at the end of November, 2012. It took us until July of 2013, for Tony to be able to bring his daughter, Leah, back to the U.S.

Tony currently works as a driver for Sherwin-Williams to make ends meet. On Thursday, July 17, he was involved in a serious car accident that rolled his car three times and left it totaled.God was with him and he was not injured.

It is critical for him to have a car in order to get to work and continue to build a ministry to African Immigrants in Indianapolis. He is in desperate need of a car.Thank you for your prayer and your consideration of this need

Sincerely,

Single Mom Needs Financial Assistance to Afford Critical Surgery Print E-mail
Pastor Koeseter Request from Pastor Kevin Koeseter, St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church, Brookfield, Illinois UPDATE: Thanks to your generous donations, LCC was able to send a check to help offset the cost of the surgery

One of the members of our congregation, with her 10-year-old son in the room, passed out and needed the paramedics to revive her. She was found to be in need of 6 units of blood. The diagnosis? Stomach tumors that were causing blood loss, pain, and weakness.

Surgery to remove the tumors is being denied because it is too costly and Medicaid considers it unnecessary. Indeed, it is costly, several thousands of dollars, and without the surgery, one can continue to live, but only with great risk and fear.

In time, the tumors are likely to turn cancerous. In the meantime, they can rupture and require immediate medical attention. Besides the fear and risk that her son may lose his mother, the physical pain and weakness continue, and make normal day-to-day tasks difficult.

Currently, she is on medication to shrink the tumors, but it isn't completely effective. Beyond that, medical assistance is available to her only when there's an immediate threat to her life. ...unless she can pay for the surgery and follow-up medication out of pocket. The surgery would last 12-15 hours and would require reconstruction of her abdominal area.

When hospitals and insurance companies make decisions based upon finances, we in the Christian Church can make decisions based upon love. The family is hosting a benefit dinner in September to raise funds for the surgery. If you are so inclined to help also, please assist as you are able.

Appeal for a Pastor Undergoing Second Liver Transplant Print E-mail
Pastor Mangold Request from Pastor Bruce Scarbeary of Trinity Lutheran Church in Roanoke, Illinois:

The congregations of Trinity Lutheran Church in LaRose, Illinois and St. John's Lutheran Church in Washburn, Illinois are raising funds for Pastor Ken Mangold.

Pastor Mangold graduated from Metamora Township High School in 1987. Two years later, he married Lisa Vollrath, a member of Our Redeemer in Eureka, Illinois. Lisa was very active in events while she was a student at Eureka College. Lisa and Ken have been married for 25 years and have 3 children - Alyssa, John, and Aleena. In December of 2013, Ken was hospitalized with a high fever, chills and abdominal pain. After nearly 70 days in the hospital since then, Ken was diagnosed with a return of a liver disease known as PSC (primary sclerosing cholangitis). Previously, this disease led to the need for a liver transplant that was done at the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin in 2006.

This return of the disease is now causing the need for a second liver transplant, and Ken is currently on the waiting list for this to be done. This has also caused significant financial need, as Ken has been forced to resign as pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church and St. John's Lutheran Church. There have been extraordinary expenses incurred with travel and lodging for the family, as they must travel to Madison, Wisconsin, for his treatment.

Please consider helping the Mangold family in their time of need. The cause is wonderful and the need is great.
