Update from the Haitian Lutheran Mission Project Print E-mail
Haiti With your support we have kept the Haitian Lutheran orphanage open by supplying the children with food, clothes and education in a loving Christian atmosphere. Your support has enabled us to pay 26 village teachers, the teachers in Fond Rouge, reopen the Philadelphia school in the city of Jeremie and through Trinity Hope Lutheran Church provide a daily meal for the children in Dame Marie. Trinity Hope is also able to continue supplying a daily meal in the other schools as well.

The Lutheran Teachers from Philadelphia Lutheran School in Jeremie sent this response in a letter:

"Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,

Peace and God's Grace be with you. We the teachers of the Lutheran Schools in Jeremie, can't find the right words to thank you. THANKS is not the word. But THANK YOU."
Haiti Compared to Lutheran and public school teachers in the United States, Haitian Lutheran School teachers make on average about $45 a month. Often these dedicated teachers continue to carry on even though some months the funds are not there to pay the teachers. When that happens often they are forced to look for secondary jobs just to support their families. Thank you for demonstrating the Lord's love and compassion for these orphans and the people of Haiti through your donations. Donate to Sponsor a Haitian Teacher or Pastor

Challenge Grant from Good Samaritan Ministries for St. Matthew Boiler Fund Print E-mail
Lopez For the last few weeks we have been encouraging donations to the St. Matthew soup kitchen so that they may buy a new boiler. Thanks to Good Samaritan Ministries in Palatine here is even more encouragement. Good Samaritan Ministries is making a matching gift donation to the St. Matthew boiler fund. They will match dollar-for-dollar every donation made to the fund up to $10,000. If we are able to make that match, more than $20,000 will be in the fund, which will allow St. Matthew to replace the boiler and continue in their worship and service to their Chicago community.

Please prayerfully consider a special gift to this matching donation and make the replacement boiler a reality.

Shaun has fought a brain tumor his entire life. He was recently informed that the cancer has spread to his spine and that he has a limited time on this earth. The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs traveled to Three Rivers, MI to visit Shaun at the invitation of Pastor Robert Bartz from St. Peter Lutheran Church.

We ask for prayers for Shaun and his family as they continue with their struggles. Throughout the visit, Shaun continued to share his strong faith.
