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:

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.

Ladel Comfort Dog in Need of Surgery Print E-mail
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.
