Wheelchair Bound Pastor Needs Van to Serve His Congregation Print E-mail
Central Illinois District Mark Miller, the president of the Central Illinois District has asked us to help wheelchair-bound Rev. Dan Chambers, who is a part-time pastor at Evangelists Lutheran Church in Kingsbury, TX, to purchase a wheelchair accessible van. Last year, the pastor and his wife spent every dime they could muster to purchase an older minivan with a wheelchair ramp. But it no longer fills their need because it has such poor suspension, and if they travel any distance he is in great amount of pain.

Several times, he has suffered breakage of the new bone growths around his hips and knees. He says “I have been blessed to be able to serve as vacancy pastor for a church that is an hour away from home…but by the time our trip ends, I am in terrible pain.” So, they would like to trade in their current van and purchase another van that will provide a smoother ride, but even used ones are terribly expensive.

Can you help him? As he said, with a better van “I would love to continue serving a church and/or even attending church”.

Help for Medical Expenses for Wife of Lutheran School Basketball Coach Print E-mail
Immanuel Lutheran Church Pastor Tom Acton of Immanuel Lutheran Church, Palatine, Illinois asked LCC to make an appeal to help defray medical costs for a longtime member. Carin and John Ulrich recently received the devastating news that Carin has stage four colon cancer. John is nationally-known for coaching Immanuel Bobcat teams for more than 25 years and both John and Carin are active in church and school activities. Carin is currently undergoing treatment that is putting a heavy burden on their finances. Below is an excerpt from a recent update Carin wrote:

"I thank everyone for all the food, books, cards, and love. I feel a blanket of love around me. Truly it is an amazing feeling! I still have pain but the good Lord has given me relief from the constant pain. Chemo is still very difficult and I am still weak … My oncologist has found a new therapy that has been approved that … only attacks the Cancer cells and does not touch the good cells. Maybe the Lord has another blessing for me with the pain? Whatever my Lord asks of me, I am here to serve Him.”

Any assistance you can give would be a tremendous blessing to this family who has meant so much too so many.

Amazing Things Happen at Kare-9 Dog Training Print E-mail
Trinity Lutheran Church After passing of the leash at Trinity Lutheran Church in Prescott, Arizona, Luther, the dual-vested dog (he has both an LCC K9-Comfort Dog vest and a Kare-9 vest so he can work with veterans) needed to learn how to work with his new team. LCC staff dogs Titus, Moses and Ruthie joined the Trinity team at Las Fuentes Care Center to visit some of the residents. According to Rich Martin who was the lead for the LCC team:

“Amazing training visit with Trinity Prescott handlers …this team gets it. Our military veterans met and prayed with veterans from the Normandy invasion, Pearl Harbor, and the Korean War, Ministry helpers shared compassion and prayer with so many.”

For those who wonder, why do we use dogs? It is the appeal of dogs that allow our church teams to reach out to their community and share the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Christ with all.

LERT LCC is delighted to welcome 51 newly trained LERT (Lutheran Early Response Team) volunteers who completed the LERT Basic Training last Saturday at St. Peter Lutheran Church of North Plato in Hampshire, Illinois.

Passing of the Leash in Prescott Valley, Arizona Print E-mail
Passing of the Leash A little more than a year and a half after the death of 19 Hotshots firefighters in the Yarnell Valley near Prescott Valley, Arizona the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs returned this time to bring one of their own, Titus Comfort Dog, to be permanently placed at Trinity Lutheran Church in Prescott Valley.

Arizona becomes the 16th state in which an LCC K-9 Comfort Dog is placed and the first "Dual Vested" congregation where 3 military veterans will be doing outreach ministry with Titus and his Kare-9 Military vest. Titus was introduced by Pastor Tim Blau at Trinity's morning services and the leash was passed by LCC K-9 members Dona & Rich Martin and Alex Brooks who welcomed Trinity's new K-9 Ministry Team members. Titus was also LCC’s first placement in Arizona.

The passing of the leash is just one part of the placement of an LCC K-9 Comfort or Kare-9 dog with a congregation. For three days after the passing of the leash, handlers and caregivers of Titus will be trained on how to work and care for Titus. Handlers will also be trained in how to use Titus to share the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Christ with others.
