Home of Pastor for The First Lutheran Church of Boston Destroyed by Explosion Print E-mail
Pastor Dutzmann Pastor Ingo Dutzmann and his family miraculously escaped harm when the house they had lived in for 22 years violently exploded from a propane leak, then burned to the ground, taking everything but the stone chimneys with it. Pastor Dutzmann has served at The First Lutheran Church of Boston since 1997.

Comfort Dogs Maggie (Christ the King - Newtown, CT), whom the pastor met after the Boston Bombing, and Lydia (Messiah - Lynnfield, MA) came to The First Lutheran of Boston to share some Christian love & comfort with Pastor Dutzmann & his family. Pastors Pekari and Brezina of Messiah Lutheran in Lynnfield brought Comfort Dog, Lydia, to help disperse some of the shock of the loss and to bring the Mercy and Compassion of Christ to Pastor Dutzmann. Pastor Dutzmann has spent his life serving and giving that Mercy and Compassion to others. He and his family have literally lost EVERYTHING in their home in the explosion. After the visit was a dinner attended by the Mayor of Taunton (the town the Dutzmanns call home) and officials from the Fire and Police Departments who helped so much since the incident.

The Red Cross is housing the Dutzmann family temporarily, but the family could use your help. First in PRAYER. It will be a long slow process towards achieving any sense of stability and security. Then in donations "in honor of the Dutzmann family" through LCC. As all other event-based donations, 100% of your donation will go to the Dutzmann family.

Van Needed for Volunteer at Soup Kitchen Print E-mail
Request from Pastor Julio Loza at St. Matthew in Chicago, Illinois
Vo Serving Food at the Soup Kitchen

There is an urgent need at St. Matthew's El Comedor Popular for a minivan to be driven by Vo, a Filipino volunteer who has found shelter in St. Matthew's basement for about four years. Vo helps in the cleaning of St. Matthew's Center and also helps to purchase food items for the soup kitchen that has provided hot meals to the homeless and unemployed for 26 years. The minivan will be used to pick up potatoes and other vegetables plus chicken and other items as needed. Vo also will help on Sundays to pick up families to attend bilingual worship services. We pray our Lord blesses this request for assistance to St. Matthew's faith mission.

If you have a van you would be willing to donate please contact LCC at 866-455-6466 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Aurora Central Catholic Seth Egger, a former student at St. Paul Lutheran School in Aurora, Illinois was one of two teenagers killed in a car crash last week. Rev. Danny Tutwiler, Pastor at St. Paul Lutheran Church asked LCC to send a team of K-9 Comfort Dogs to come to the school Thursday after the crash. LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Luther, Olympia, Tara, Barnabas (Holy Cross - Portage, IN), Gracie (Trinity - Davenport, IA), Tillie, Ladel (St Matthew - Hawthorn Woods, IL), Tabby, and in training Zippy (Trinity - Roselle, IL), and Chloe (Lord of Life - LaFox, IL) shared the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Christ with the students and staff.

For the same heartbreaking event, Comfort Dogs were also requested to visit Aurora Catholic High School where both teenagers attended. Seven LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and their handlers were available to offer solace and peace during their lunch hour on Tuesday, March 17th, the day after the funerals for both students. Scores of students used these Comfort Dogs as a distraction from their grief and pain.
