LCC President Tim Hetzner Returns From Delivering Aid Efforts in Haiti Print E-mail
Haiti This past week in Haiti was once again eye opening for me. You would think that the many times I have been to Haiti over the years I would have grown accustom to their living conditions as they are one of the poorest countries in the world. That was not the case. I am amazed at so many things! The Church continues to grow despite the lack of resource. Even in the face of hardship they continue to remain happy and faithful to God. One such instance is the joy a pair of shoes, a bowl of food, or a shirt brings to their faces. Comforts we enjoy without second thought. Haiti

Even though they have little to work with they do what they can and God blesses their work and does miraculous things through them. Motorcycles for the pastors help them to be able to better serve their numerous congregations. A trip that may normally take a day on foot is decreased to a little more than an hour. The teachers and pastors are dedicated to what they do, even though they make very little at $45-75 a month. Help Fund a Teacher or a Pastor

I was able to visit and witness the wonderful work of the Mission Societies from the US. The programs they have are helping to show the Mercy and Compassion of Christ to those in need all throughout Haiti.


The impoverishment of the people is hard to witness and yet they are blessed in so many ways that we in the United States have taken for granted. Schools with no electricity, running water or plumbing, classrooms with dirt floors - and yet some of the most exciting learning is taking place.

I visited many of our Lutheran Schools in Haiti and all of the students were engaged and eager to learn. One school had 650 students and only four makeshift classrooms; they ran the school in two sessions, morning for the younger students and afternoon for the older students.

Haitian Radio Station


While in Haiti, I was able to visit the Lutheran Radio station that was purchased with your generous donations. The program, Concordia International, began broadcasting on Wednesday, November 19. The call number is 96.3 FM and the hope is this station will help to broadcast the mercy and compassion of Christ Jesus to all of those in need in Haiti.



Because of your donations, LCC was able to distribute and purchase food, shoes, water filters, motorcycles, goats, medical aid and supplies, clothing, support for our Lutheran Pastors and Teachers, funding for a radio station in Jacmel, and much more. Thank you for supporting the Mercy and Compassion of Christ to so many! To support the continuing outreach efforts in Haiti Click Here to Learn More.

Desperate NEED - LCC is Losing Our Disaster Response Warehouse Print E-mail

We Need Your Help in Locating a 2000 sq. ft. Warehouse

For the past 10 years the Lord has opened the doors and provided for free just the right kind and size of storage that we have needed for the work that LCC does - particularly with our Disaster Response Equipment.


This past Friday, we received word from the property management company that has provided warehouse space for us for the past four years for free that the tenant that we share space with is moving and the property management company needs to paint and carpet the facility before they can market it. For that reason they are giving us only two weeks after Thanksgiving to relocate.

If you know of anyone who might be willing to donate the use of 2000 square feet of warehouse space that can accommodate warehouse shelving that LCC may use to store our Disaster Response equipment and supplies, as well as office furnishings and supplies for the ministries of LCC, please contact LCC toll-free at 866-455-6466 or via email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and ask to talk with Tim Hetzner, Joel Moritz or Dianna Bonfield.The donated space can be used as a tax write-off and good public relations for the donor.

Thank you for your help!

Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Training of Trainers Course

Because of the success of the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs in touching lives with Mercy and Compassion of Jesus Christ, and the demand from our churches, schools, and colleges, LCC is starting another training class for trainers. This is in addition to the classes already in progress!

K-9 Training

The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs bring comfort to individuals and families who are suffering pain or loss. LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs calm individuals, facilitate conversation, work with special needs individuals, veterans, and the elderly, and are used in counseling situations. LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs also respond to crisis and disaster situations. In order to be able to accomplish this outreach we need volunteers who can devote time and energy to train our precious golden retrievers to become LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs who will then be placed to work in a church/school and literally touch thousands of Lives!.

The LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry is expanding by recruiting additional people for the K-9 Comfort Dog Trainers Course. By doing this we can keep up with the number of requests for LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs, and we can do an even better job of training and regulating our standards for our Comfort Dogs! We continue to grow and place our LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs in more states (16 now and soon to be 20) but in order to do this we need volunteers to participate in our LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Trainers Course.

K-9 Training

We are accepting applications NOW from individuals interested in joining us in this endeavor. There will be a limited number of people we can train, so if you are interested, please fill out the application soon. The training program will be offered in the Chicagoland area.

For more information call 866-455-6466 and talk to Alex or Anastasia, or to apply, click here.

Your Help Needed for Car Repairs in Haiti Print E-mail

Sue Gross from the Haitian Lutheran Mission Project shares this urgent request for your help to raise funds to repair Pastor Isaac's vehicle.


The last couple times we were in Jeremie we had to rent a car at $150.00 a day and it was in worse shape than Pastor Isaac's. His car gets a LOT of wear and tear. We, The Haitian Lutheran Mission Project, are barely getting his other expenses paid so he did not bother to ask us for assistance. We are still trying to support the orphanage, the 26 Lutheran School Teachers and the Feeding Program so there is never any extra to pay for his car.


Even before the devastating hurricane that destroyed what little infrastructure there was in Haiti, Pastor Isaac would take in all orphans that came to him, and continues to do so. He even established a school to help education the children.
