St. Matthew’s Mission to the Homeless Struggles to Survive Print E-mail
Kitchen St. Matthew Lutheran Church (LCMS) located at 2108 West 21st Street, Chicago, Illinois has, over the last 26 years, developed a unique ministry in the Pilsen Community to reach the growing number of homeless and unemployed people. St. Matthew is the only Lutheran church in the community with a Gospel- oriented mission to all the homeless and unemployed. El Comedor Soup Kitchen provides hot meals to feed the hungry and shares devotions to feed their souls. At the same time, it provides services in English and Spanish in a poverty stricken community of mostly

Latino families. Summer is a particularly tough time financially for the ministry. The soup kitchen continues to serve 200+ meals twice a week even though donations are down. Please consider supporting the important work of St Matthew as they continue to reach out and serve those in need in their community.

Comfort Dogs Visit Arnold Palmer and Winnie Palmer Hospitals in Orlando Print E-mail
Arnold Palmer House Pictured are LCC Comfort Dog Susie and her friends Phoebe, Barnabas, Myelah, Jacob and Sasha outside the Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital, with Jeanine who arranged the visit. Susie, Phoebe and Sasha visited Arnold’s, while the other 3 dogs visited Winnie's.

From Brad Schroeder about the Comfort Dogs June 16th visit to Arnold Palmer and Winnie Palmer’s hospitals in Orlando

We had the joy of visiting many of the staff on the floors of the hospital, along with a number of children patients. Susie and I visited with a few children in the oncology ward. To see these little ones battling cancer was heartbreaking. At the same time it was heartwarming as they petted Susie and had a smile on their little faces. The other children we were blessed to meet loved Susie as we walked the wards.

The staff were so happy to meet and pet our dogs. These people treat these little ones every day and you can see they give their hearts to these children. I was humbled by their love and dedication to the kids. They are heroes.

We then greeted many children and parents in the cool Disney walkway. They loved our dogs and each of us handlers were so blessed to be there. I think we all shed a tear as we saw these children, many battling for their lives, loving our dogs.

I will remember this visit forever as one of love and awe. We are fortunate to have our health. I thank Jeanine and her staff for having us there and making the visit incredible. They are wonderful and care so much for the kids.

The other group that visited Winnie's were also thrilled and humbled by their time with staff and the children

I thank God for giving us these dogs and the opportunity to serve these children. Please keep Jeanine, all the staff and all the children in your prayers. God has a purpose for us all, today it was to bring a little happiness to the kids and the wonderful staff. Brad and Susie

From Jeanine Clapsaddle who organized the visit for the hospitals

It was such a great day with Susie, Phoebe, Sasha, Barney, Jacob and Mahlah! They brought great comfort to so many people- everyone from patients and parents, nurses, doctors, and administrators. There are no words to thank you for the gifts of your time and compassion. As Helen Keller once said, people may not remember what you did or what you said but they will remember the way that you made them feel. We will remember you for offering us a few moments of peace.

Our thoughts are with you as you process all that you have witnessed and absorbed in your time here.
