Assistance Needed for Roof Repairs Print E-mail
Pastor Shehab LCC received the following email from Pastor Hesham Shehab (Salam Christian Fellowship - Lombard, IL) regarding a family in desperate need of support:
Dear Friends,

We have a very hard working Iranian woman, 74, who takes care of her disabled Husband, 85, disabled son, 56, and disabled brother, 79. The family lives in a condo in Lombard, Illinois. Recently, the association there charged her $1400 for roof repairs, (due end of this month). If she does not pay the bill, she would be fined and sued, and pay the court expenses ($970).

Please show the love of Christ by donating generously to this Iranian family that was persecuted in Iran, and found Peace in Jesus at Salam.
Thanks

In God's Peace
Hesham Shehab

Great is Thy Faithfulness Print E-mail
On Saturday, January 16, 2016, all Lutheran Early Response Teams had been deployed out to muck out homes in Watseka, IL. Around that time, a woman named Elizabeth came to Calvary Lutheran Church after receiving terrible news. The rental house where her family lived was being condemned because it posed a danger to her family and was unsafe to live in. She needed to move out by Monday, leaving only Sunday to move out all the furniture and belongs. She rented a storage unit and had a small trailer her land lord loaned to her. Her husband and sons worked the weekend so they could not help. She went to the Red Cross which told her they could not help her and said to try the Lutheran church.

volunteers in Watseka When Elizabeth arrived at Calvary, she was at her wits end due to not knowing what to do. After talking with her, Lutheran Church Charities staff member Dianna Bonfield asked the LERT team if they could possibly stay a little longer to help. Without any hesitation, they all said yes and signed back in. They donned their work gloves, grabbed a hand truck from the tool trailer, and headed to her house. The next two teams joined them to move the furniture and items to storage. The twelve volunteers loaded, moved, and unloaded all of her furniture and the majority of boxes leaving only a few small things for her family to move the following day.

Elizabeth left Calvary experiencing the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Christ through the loving service of the volunteers who let her know that there was hope and God loved her.

Bible in Watseka While in Watseka, IL, Lutheran Church Charities staff members and volunteers have continued to encounter men and women who remain strong in their faith and their resolve. The community remains hopeful as they clean up and recover from the effects of the flood waters that have devastated their town. As our photographers went from home to home documenting progress and encouraging homeowners, we were struck by the presence of this Bible. Here was a garage filled to capacity with household items that had been water drenched and were now air drying as best they could. Yet there amid the damage and ruin sat the Bible; a symbol of hope. God's Word is eternal. It does not wash away in floods but rather lives on in the heart of man, woman, and child.

sunset in Watseka As our staff wrapped up from another long weekend of coordinating restoration and cleaning efforts, the Lord blessed us with a magnificent sunset as we set out on the 2+ hour drive back home. As surely as the sun rises and sets, as God's children we can trust the unending love of the Lord; His mercies are new every morning. No matter what we face in life, one thing remains; the faithfulness of the mighty God we love and serve.

Great is Thy faithfulness, great is Thy faithfulness, morning by morning new mercies I see. All I have needed Thy hand hast provided, great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me.

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”
Lamentations 3:22-24
