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

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.

LCC never charges those we serve and rely on the support of others to help cover transportation costs. Thank you for your faithful support!

Bibles Needed to Spread the Word of God Print E-mail

Two Requests from Pastor Hicham Chehab of Salam Fellowship in Chicago, Illinois

Bilingual Bibles needed for Outreach to Muslims

Bilingual Bible
Dear Friends,

In the 1980s, when I was in college, I heard the Word of God from the mouth of a secular professor, and Jesus transformed my life from a member of the Muslim Brotherhood to an evangelist, and used me to plant Salam Christian Fellowship and a student ministry in Chicagoland.

Today, more college students are taking Bibles through our student ministry, especially New Testaments, and copies of bilingual Gospels that are changing their lives. We ask you to prayerfully consider donating towards purchasing more bilingual Gospels.

God at Work Changing Lives of Syrian Refugees in Lebanon

Pastor Hicham

Arabic Bibles are needed to share the Word of God with the more than two million Syrian refugees in Lebanon.

Syrian refugees make up one-third of the population of Lebanon and that number continues to grow as Syrians flee their own country because of the persecution from the terrorist group known as ISIS. Lebanon is one of the last Christian strongholds of Christianity in the Middle East even though the majority of the population may be Muslim. At one time Lebanon's roots were all Christian.

Salam Christian Fellowship and Pastor Hicham Chehab are partnering with Lutheran Hour Ministries who have boots on the ground and are able to distribute the Arabic Bibles to Syrian refugees in the refugee camps. Lutheran Hour Ministries is able get these Bibles for $2.00 each. Please prayerfully consider helping us spread the Gospel of Christ Jesus to those in need in Lebanon.

$10,000 Needed to Bring Concordia FM International Radio to Haiti Print E-mail
Marky Kessa Request from Pastor Marky Kessa, President of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Haiti (ELCH)

For the past several years it has been the dream of the ELCH to have a radio station in Jacmel that would broadcast Concordia FM International.

Radio is the fastest way to reach thousands at a time with the Gospel. In the words of Pastor Kessa, "This is my dream, a place I can feel free to talk about our faith in Christ! And many, many souls will be saved. So let us pray God can open doors."

LCC has learned that a tower is now available in Jacmel for purchase. By being able to purchase an existing tower the ELCH will be able to start and run a radio station for $10,000.

Please consider joining LCC and the ELCH as we work to bring Concordia International Radio to Haiti. The fields are ripe unto harvest right now

St. Matthew in Need of Handicap Ramp to Help Spread the Word of God Print E-mail
Pastor Loza Request from Pastor Julio Loza of St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Chicago, Illinois

On Wednesday, October 8, LCC received the following request from Pastor Loza:

About 10 years ago we found Jose Sanchez sleeping nights at the side entrance of a house. We invited him to El Comedor Popular Soup Kitchen and eventually he stayed at St. Matthew's Center to live and help the soup kitchen volunteers serve the hot meals to the hungry. With time I noticed a strong smell and I advised him to see a doctor. He failed to listen and I called an ambulance.

At Stroger Hospital the doctors let him know that he had an advanced case of diabetes. They gave him a choice: either cut off the damaged leg or he would go home and die. He chose to have his leg cut off. The doctors advised him to quit drinking alcohol or else he would also loose the other leg. Because he did not listen, eventually his other leg was also cut off.

Jose is now in a wheelchair and lives in a different location. Since he does not qualify for special aid, he makes a living by selling chewing gum and other items on the streets of Chicago. He does come to St. Matthew toeat once in a while. We need a special ramp for Jose and other handicapped people who use a wheelchair to come to the Soup Kitchen or to worship at St Matthew.

We ask for your prayers that Jose may remain within the Christian faith and receive God's mercy and guidance to continue survival on the streets of Chicago.

LCC is assisting St Mathew to find volunteers to build the ramp and to raise money to cover the cost of supplies for building the ramp. Donate toward the purchase of supplies to build the ramp for St Matthew
