Parish Nurse
I want to thank you all the donors and Lutheran Church Charities for your support for the NID Parish Nurse Network and our desire to continue to assist Raeda Mansour and her parish nurse ministry in Bethlehem.

In today's mail I received a generous check representing donations received in response to Lutheran Church Charities and their sharing the need. We believe that providing support for Raeda's continued development for parish nursing in Bethlehem supports the Christians in and around Bethlehem as well as a witness to their Muslim neighbors. Being able to regularly bring Raeda to the NID helps Raeda and the parish nurses in the NID as we are able to share with her in our mutual ministries.

Thank you and God bless you.

Your Gifts Make A Difference! - Medical Funds Print E-mail
Richard Tino LCC received the following note of thanks from Pastor Richard Tino (Global Lutheran Outreach). Last year, Pastor James Tino (Peace Lutheran - Sandusky, Michigan) asked you to help his brother, a former volunteer firefighter.
I was made aware recently that you donated another $500.00 to my medical fund last winter. Thank you! I received 3 successful lung operations that greatly improved my ability to breath while also enabling me to wean down my breathing medication. Your donation allowed me to pay the remaining balance of my bill in full.

Thank you again,
Pastor Richard Tino

Your Gifts Make A Difference! - Flint Water Crisis Print E-mail
Flint Water Thanks to your generous gifts, safe water is flowing for the staff and students at St Paul Lutheran School in Flint, Michigan. LCC received the following update from Pastor Walsh:
As of April 1st, the new faucets and drinking fountains were installed here at St Paul, Flint. As of mid-May, the filtration system has been installed. Our latest water tests have all passed. We are still waiting for the possible work on our school dishwasher (waiting until summer). Then we will be complete. The monies given to our filtration system by your generous donations have been more than enough to cover our needs, with no cost to St Paul. And, there is enough to cover filters for quite some time.

We also have a lot of water in storage and are continuing to distribute water to our members and community.

Again, thank you for your generosity in the Lord Jesus!

In Christ,
Pastor Walsh
Jeffrey B. Walsh, Pastor

Vets Exiting Homelessness Receive Beds Print E-mail
Moving Mattresses LCC partnered with Military Outreach USA last December to raise money to buy beds for a number of Chicago area veterans who were leaving the streets and moving into housing. Military Outreach was able to purchase a full size mattress and box spring, frame, two pillows, pillowcases and a set of sheets for only $150 for each vet. What started small in Chicago has spread across the nation and has now become one of Military Outreach's biggest tools to help vets.

Pontiac Church Donates to Armory Print E-mail
Armory In the Scriptures, Ecclesiastes 3:2 tells us there is "a time to be born and a time to die." On January 23rd, LCC staff members Jim Morrison and Dianna Bonfield, with LCC volunteers Glenn Dailey and Marc Morrison, saw God at work. It seemed to be the death of 85-year-old Trinity Lutheran Church in Pontiac, IL. However, when God closed one door, a window opened for the National Guard Armory in Chicago as Trinity donated its altar furnishings. As Trinity members Betty & Jim Barnett, Ruth Anne & Jim Fulton, and former member Dennis Guth helped load the box truck bound for the General Jones Armory in Chicago they could see how God was bringing "new birth", meaning and purpose to these furnishing that were once used to bring God's word and presence to members of Trinity. 22

The LCC envoy was met by Chaplain Wilhelm (Capt.) and Chaplain Assistant, Sergeant Britton, and a number of National Guard soldiers. Sergeant Britton gave a tour of the armory and shared the illustrious history and story behind its unique architecture and military emblems. After Chaplain Wilhelm's introduction of the command staff, the volunteers were presented with a challenge coin of the 2.122 Field Artillery.

Chaplain Wilhelm and Sergeant Britton were able to use the altar furnishings when they conducted Sunday Chapel service for the Guardsmen on duty.

A special thank you to all the members of Trinity Lutheran Church in Pontiac, IL for their care and support of our military men and women and their families.

Donation Delivered to Syrian Refugee and Family Print E-mail
Syrian Family The Tuesday before Christmas, your gifts made a difference to a Syrian refugee family. LCC was able to deliver a new infant crib to Zaid Alfallah for his 10 month-old daughter, Shaam. A special thank you to Aiesha Hussan of Salam Christian Fellowship who assisted LCC staff by translating and helping Zaid assemble the crib.

Zaid, his wife Enaam, and seven-year-old daughter Huda are refugees from Syria. Zaid was a successful and wealthy young man who lost everything because as a Syrian Muslim he hid and protected Christians from ISIS. They kidnapped his wife and daughter and imprisoned him. When he was finally released, he used everything he owned to find his family and get to the United States.

However, Zaid had trouble finding a job. The apartment they were sharing was overcrowded. In Chicago, they met Pastor Hesham Shehab and people from Salam Christian Fellowship and Wheaton Bible Church who took them under their wing and cared for them.

Life is much better now that the family is living in a two-bedroom apartment, which is nicely furnished. Zaid has been able to find part-time work and has a lead on full time employment in the near future. They have also been blessed with the birth of a second daughter.

Thank you for making a difference in the lives of this family.
