Family in Need After Flooding and Accident Print E-mail
Pastor Eaves Request from Pastor Thomas Eaves of St. John's, Barnesville Minnesota

On Tuesday, September 23, LCC received the following request

Assistance is needed for a family in our community that our congregation is trying to help. The basement of their home was flooded just as they had begun to remodel the home.

A year after the flood the husband was involved in a freak accident that left him partially handicapped and unable to find a job. The wife was working, but recently had their third child causing her to be unable to work as childcare is not available.

During this time, they have been able to pay for necessities, but the repairs to the home are only possible with donations of time, talent, and money. Family members are maxed out on helping with finances. Installing a furnace and landscaping to prevent further flooding still needs to be done before winter arrives. Any assistance that could be given would be received with great thanksgiving to the Lord.

Lutheran Church of the Philippines Bookkeeper in Need of $2,500 for Cancer Treatment Print E-mail
Tom Grunow LCC received word from Tom Grunow, Director of Biblical Generosity at Christ Lutheran Church in Lincoln, Nebraska, that Espie Ariones, the bookkeeper and assistant at the Lutheran Church of the Philippians, has been diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer.
Her surgery, chemotherapy and medications will cost $2,500. Espie receives a salary from the church that covers her daily needs but not the extra expenses from the cancer. Espie has been vital to the recent turnaround of the LCP as President James right hand person, handling all the details of running his office and the church finances. Her illness prevents her from working and the LCP only can afford to keep her on pay roll since there are no health benefits, the LCP cannot afford to offer benefits. Three years ago she took confirmation classes and became Lutheran when I was honored to provide her with an engraved Bible recognizing this. She has several grown children and a daughter in high school. Espie will begin chemo therapy when she has the raised the money she needs to pay for it.

Tom, who works closely with the LCP and will be traveling to the Philippines later this month, is asking for our help to cover her medical expenses.

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.
