$57 (Average) Sends a Student to the Lutheran School in Myanmar Print E-mail
Myanmar LCC received the following request from Rev. Charles Edwards, pastor of the National Lutheran Church of Myanmar. Since 2011, LCC has been raising funds for scholarships so that the children of Pastor Edwards' church can attend school. The scholarships cover the cost of the admission fees, text and exercise books, uniforms, raincoats and school supplies. A Christian education in Myanmar only costs from $25-$75 per student for five months of school. Last year, because of your generous donations, we were able to cover the costs for 30 children. The school now has 59 students from Primary to High School. To cover scholarships for all 59 students is only $3,375.
Greetings from Yangon, Myanmar.

Last year the LCC gave scholarships to 30 students from my church. I sent all photos to Vida last year. They all passed the exam and they will be in higher classes. The school will reopen on 1st June and the old and new students from my church requested help for their education.

Myanmar My church is located in a poorest area of Yangon Division (other bank of Hlaing River). Almost of my members are new believers and they are all hard laborers (daily wages). It is very hard on them to supporting their children’s education. But they are interesting to continue their children’s education.

The following is a list of the students and the costs for half education year. (For 5 month only)

Class Number of Students Cost/Student Total
Primary 11 $25 USD $275 USD
Middle 20 $50 USD $1,000 USD
Higher 28 $75 USD $2,100 USD
Total 59 Students $3,375 USD

Total cost for 59 children is 3375 USD.

These costs are for text books, exercise books, school bags, ball pens, pencils, rulers, erasers, correction pens, color- pencils, compass boxes, school uniforms and rain coat or umbrellas.

The parents are very poor and unable to buy these things to their children. These children are from all my church preaching centers.

My church is preaching the Gospel to the poorest community and the Holy Spirit is working wonderfully. Hundreds of people have never heard about Gospel of Jesus. Once a week my church preaches them regularly. Please pray for our church.

I and my members pray and hope that God will help these poor students through LCC like last year.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Rev. Charles Edwards
National Lutheran Church of Myanmar

Trainers Needed The Lord has blessed the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs by touching the lives of countless people with Mercy and Compassion of Jesus Christ. The demand from our churches, schools, and colleges is so great LCC is starting another training class for trainers.

The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs bring solace 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. After training, the dogs will then be placed to work in a church or school with the goal of touching thousands of Lives!

The K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry is recruiting apprentice trainers to keep up with the number of requests for LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs. The Apprentice Comfort Dog Training Course will allow us to do an even better job of training and regulating the standards we set for our Comfort Dogs! We continue to grow and place our LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs in more states so we are accepting applications NOW from individuals interested in registering for the course.

LCC is Moving to New Digs, Help Us With Our Move Print E-mail
Moving to New Digs A few months ago, LCC was blessed with a MAJOR donation from St. John Lutheran Church in Northbrook. We had been using part of their building for Comfort Dog training, but now they asked us to take over the entire building. We are presently doing some updating to make the former pre-school classrooms into offices. But a lot more needs to be done, especially painting and moving.

On Saturday, May 16th, LCC had its first of several upcoming workdays out at our new Northbrook headquarters to start renovations so that we can soon move over the remaining staff. This weekend past weekend, LCC staff members Phil Bandy, Jamie Miller and Kimberly Schulz were joined by LCC volunteers Bruce Buhrke, Todd Burmeister, and Mike Flaherty. The crew removed all the furniture from the 2nd floor to be reused in another part of the building, put in temporary storage, given away, or taken to the dumpster.

For the next several weeks and into June we will be remodeling the rest of the building getting it ready to move the remaining staff and their offices to Northbrook. Work will be done primarily on Saturdays. If you are interested and available to help, below is a skeleton schedule of what needs to be done. Please be aware that this will change as the work progresses.

Thursday, May 21st - late afternoon and possibly evening - we will need volunteers to help unload carpet squares from the box truck to the building.

Saturday, May 30th - we will need volunteers to help paint the interior walls in the new office areas.

The following Saturday, June 6th, we would like to start moving some smaller elements – files, supplies, etc. into the new building.

Once the painting is done we will be putting down the carpeting and flooring then we will need help moving furniture and supplies to the new office spaces. Watch the Making a Difference newsletter and your email for schedule announcements.

If you are able to help on any of the above dates please fill out the registration form and let us know your availability. To register CLICK HERE.

Comfort Dogs Bring Peace to Prairie Central High School After Suicide Print E-mail
K-9s visit Prairie Central HS Earlier this week LCC received a call we never like. Dan Casillis, principal at Prairie Central High School in Fairbury, IL, asked LCC to bring some Comfort Dogs to the school because of a suicide. We worked with the Rev. Mark Miller, president of the Central Illinois District, and Rev. Mark Gruden of Trinity Lutheran in La Rose, IL and St. John Lutheran in Washburn, IL to put together a team to share the Mercy, Compassion and Presence of Jesus with those students who were hurting and grieving their classmate.

According to Rich Martin, team leader, “The kids were surprised and felt very special that the school and LCC would provide such an amazing service. Social workers and school psychologist also appreciated the assistance. Principal Dan Casillas thanked the team and Pastor Gruden closed us all in prayer."
