Needs Met
Comfort Dog Kits Donated to LCC Print E-mail
Comfort dog Kits On Monday, September 8, Jeannine Scheftel of the Happy Hands Craft Group of Immanuel Lutheran Church delivered 12 spiritual care kits which will be used by some of our handlers for their go bags and 12 plastic totes for disaster response.

When the handlers go out with the dogs in a crisis situation, listening and absorbing peoples stories, by the end of the day they become emotionally and spiritually depleted. When they get back to their room they can take their Spiritual Care Kit from their "Go Bag" and get some spiritual nourishment and renewal for the next day of ministry.

The 12 large plastic totes that the group the donated will be handed out to families at disaster sites to store any of their small belongings they are able to salvage.

Thanks to Your Generous Donations Family Able to Continue Treatment for Child with Brain Cancer Print E-mail
Matthew and family Last fall, LCC helped in raising funds for Matthew and his family. This last Sunday, Matthew was given the okay to go out in public. LCC received the following email in thanks for the generous donations:
Matthew was a student at Good Shepherd Children's Center who was diagnosed with brain cancer last year. Through Good Shepherd's Matthew Fund we raised more than $7000 to help support Matthew's family with the staggering medical bills. On Sunday, Matthew was able to join us in worship and we were able to pray over him in worship. Matthew's mom Jazmin wrote on Good Shepherd's Facebook page:

Thank you Pastor Phil for your help and allowing us to share Matthew's progress with everyone at Good Shepherd Sunday morning. We couldn't think of a better way of coming out and celebrating a beautiful day in his recovery when he is not susceptible to infection than spending a morning with the Good Shepherd community and our little angel Danielle (Chryssikos). She was able to get our story out while we were focusing on Matthew. As we slowly begin to return to some sort of normalcy it's nice to know we have people praying for Matthew's total and complete recovery. We ask that you continue to have Matthew in your prayers as he continues with 6 more months of chemotherapy and surgeries to correct the position of his eye and facial paralysis. Please pray that his transition back to being around kids his age, going to school, going to the park, to church, the movies and everything that a 5 -year-old should be experiencing goes smoothly. Above all please pray that his cancer does not return. Thank you all.

It is a great blessing to my students and to my church. I and my members were surprised to receive the second aid from you.

Again, thank you for your help and kindness for the poor people.
Rev. Charles Edwards
Pastor National Lutheran Church of Myanmar.

Last week we reported that $765.00 had been received for scholarships. Those monies were sent to Pastor Edwards and he enrolled 15 students. LCC has now received the remainder needed to send the rest of the children back to school for this semester. Thank you to everyone who so generously donated, you are Making a Difference in the lives of these children and their families!

Myanmar Children with Thank You sign ORIGINAL REQUEST:

We received the following request from Rev. Charles Edwards, pastor of the National Lutheran Church of Myanmar. Since 2011, LCC has been involved in raising funds for scholarships so that the children of Pastor Edwards' church can attend school. The scholarships cover the cost of admission fees, text and exercise books, uniforms, raincoats and school supplies. Each of the 30 students needs $50.00 to start back to school in June.

Dear Lutheran Church Charities,
Greetings from Yangon, Myanmar (Burma)

Several years ago LCC raised money for scholarship for my students. I and my members always remember that. Thank you for it.

This year our country's financial situation is not good and this is effecting my church's donations.

Girl with new dress

Here the school will reopen on 2nd June and 30 middle school students from my church need scholarships to continue their education. Each student needs 50 USD for half year education.

All of their parents are hard labors and poor. And these families are new believers converted from other religions through our mission works.

In Myanmar there are very few Lutherans living here so it is very hard to ask for donations from other churches. My members and I pray and hope that you will help our poor students this time also. Please pray for us and for our country.

Rev. Charles Edwards
National Lutheran Church of Myanmar

Pastor and Wife From Immanuel Lutheran Church, Pensacola, Florida Lose Everything in Recent Floods Print E-mail

Request from Reverend Michael Vokt of Trinity Lutheran Church in Davenport, Iowa

Rev Vokt On Tuesday, April 29th the worst flood that had has occurred in generations ripped through Pensacola, Florida destroying houses, flooding out cars, and has killed 36 people across seven states. It rained 26 inches in less than 24 hours and the rainwater in the houses was waist-high.

In that flood a dear friend, Rev. Randy Blankschaen (Pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church, Penscola, FL) and his wife Lydia lost everything. The house is ruined, the cars are ruined, the clothes are ruined, and the cats are missing. The only thing that didn't get completely destroyed were the clothes they were wearing, and the insurance company isn't going to cover anything.
