LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Bring Christ's Mercy and Compassion to Those in Need at Marysville Print E-mail
Marysville LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Luther, Aaron (in-training), and Shami (St. John, Darien) responded with handlers Tom Bartnick, Jeanne Moore, Toni Bazon, and K-9 Executive Director Rich Martin to the tragic shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School in Marysville, Washington.

The tragedy occurred on Friday, October 24 and LCC was asked to come later that evening. Members of LCC left Addison at 9 a.m. on Monday, October 27 and upon arrival went immediately to meet with families at a prayer service held at Messiah Lutheran Church. Messiah is home to many students from Marysville-Pilchuck including one who was present in the cafeteria at the time of the shooting.

LCC was invited by Rev. Ron Norris, Disaster Response Coordinator of the Pacific Northwest District, and Rev. Kurt Onken of Messiah Lutheran Church in Marysville. The week was filled with visits to the memorial at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, elementary school visits, individual family visits, and meeting high school students and adults at various community events.

One very special visit came with a visit to a group of special needs children who were at the high school the day of the shooting. The team was well received and showed His Mercy and His Compassion to a hurting community. We continue to keep those affected in our prayers and hope for healing from Christ in this time of need.

We are thankful for several news agencies telling the story of the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs bringing their unconditional love to the residents of Marysville:

Yahoo! News
ABC News
Washington Post
KOMO (video)
The Anipal Times

LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Requested in Marysville, Washington Print E-mail

Help bring the Mercy, Compassion, Presence, and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those suffering and in need in Marysville, Washington.

K-9 Comfort DogsWe all pray when the news pops up on our phones, on the TV, and in our email inbox, "Please God no, not another school shooting." As details of these tragedies become reality, we all cry in some way and our prayers plead for comfort for those affected.

Within hours of the shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, Pastor Kurt Onken from Messiah Lutheran Church in Marysville, Washington, Rev. Ross Johnson (Director of LCMS Disaster Response), and Rev. Ron Norris (Northwest Disaster Response Coordinator), asked for the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and handlers to come to their community to help bring the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those affected by this tragic event.

K-9 Comfort DogsA mile down the road from the high school, Messiah Lutheran Church will be hosting a place where students and parents can gather to talk and heal from the tragic events from Friday. With classes cancelled at the high school next week, students will be looking for places to gather and talk. Messiah Lutheran Church is one of those places close to the high school that will be open for this to happen, aided by the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs. Help us bring that Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those suffering and confused.

K-9 Comfort DogsA team of handlers and K-9 Comfort Dogs will be arriving in Marysville on Monday, October 27 and stay through the week; longer if requested. The team will be available for the community, especially the students, staff and faculty of the high school. The team's gentle and loving presence will serve as a reminder that our gentle and loving Savior is present in our times of sorrow and sadness. Keep everyone in Marysville, Washington in your prayers.

LadelUpdate: Thanks to your generous donations, the full cost of Ladel's surgery had been received. Please keep Ladel's handler and medical teams in your prayers

In September, a lump was discovered along the jaw of LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ladel - who is owned by LCC affiliate, St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Hawthorn Woods, Illinois. She was taken to the vet to have the lump removed. Upon removal a biopsy was done and the results came back cancerous.

Ladel will be having surgery on October 27, in order to have the lump completely removed. After the removal, Ladel will need reconstructive surgery on her jaw and mouth.

As of now, she is still going to events and helping to bring the mercy and compassion of Christ Jesus to those in need. St. Matthew is requesting financial assistance with medical expenses that will come from having the procedure done.

We ask for your continued support in your prayers for the Comfort Dog team at St. Matthew - Hawthorn Woods and all those who are affected by this news.
