Mother in Desperate Need of Help to Repair Handicapped Son's Bathroom Print E-mail
Request from Pastor Warren Schlif, Immanuel Lutheran Church, Palatine, Illinois On August 1, LCC received the following email:
Our friend, Aleza Chikko of Schaumburg is in need of repair for her handicapped son's downstairs bathroom. pastor

We met Aleza through our Paint-a-Thon project last year, where we painted the entire exterior of her house. Aleza is no longer married, and continues to care for her 31 year old son Isaac who is mentally handicapped. Aleza has very limited resources financially and does not have the money, nor the ability to make these repairs on her own or even hire a contractor.

Essentially, the downstairs bathroom is in need of great repair, with the bathroom door barely hanging on it's hinges. The lights and the fan are not currently working, and the shower door is completely off its tracks. On top of that, the shower head is leaking continually into the tub.

Aleza is a Christian woman, who has contacted her church home, but they are unable to provide assistance. She has also made numerous calls to her township and other community service organizations with no offers to help.

Aleza is hoping to find someone who might be willing to donate their time and skills to help complete the repairs, or find people who might be willing to donate funds so that she can hire and pay for a contractor to perform the work.

Soup Kitchen

St. Matthew Lutheran Church is facing a financial crisis, due to a slowdown of summer donations, to support El Comedor Popular Soup Kitchen to feed the homeless and unemployed. St. Matthew volunteers are "the poor serving the poor" who continue in the hot summer days to cook and serve food to the homeless and poor families in Chicago in spite of the fact that the donations to support the program have slowed down.

We ask the Lord to bless your efforts to assist St. Matthew's faith mission to the poor. Click here to donate to EL Comedor Popular Soup Kitchen

Pilger Nebraska Update Print E-mail
Pilger UPDATE: July 14, 2014

Since the dual tornadoes ravished the little rural community of Pilger, Nebraska, thousands of volunteers descended on the town bringing hope and assistance to clean up after the tornadoes. Within a two-week period of time, volunteers helped families salvage what they could, demolished remaining buildings and removed debris. By July 1, when all the disaster response groups that brought in the volunteers left, all that remained of Pilger were the foundation slabs where structures once resided.

Working through St. John Lutheran Church and with the Community of Pilger, Lutheran Church Charities continues to recruit and send teams of volunteers to bring hope and assist now with the reconstruction of any remaining structures. During the first two weeks in July, volunteer teams finished walking the fields picking up debris. As of this weekend the crops have grown too high to continue the walking of the fields.

Volunteer groups are still needed in Pilger. Volunteers will no longer be doing debris clean- up for they have now moved into the reconstruction and rebuilding phase. Volunteers are needed in three different areas. These areas include: helping repair damaged homes so that residents will be able to move back in, helping to prepare the cleared sites for the contractors to come in a begin rebuilding, and helping to landscape and build a memorial using the materials from the buildings that were destroyed.

New housing options have opened up for volunteers.

For teams that don't mind roughing it there is tent camping at the park in Pilger, which is right next door to the pool house where there are restrooms and showers.

In Pilger, four blocks from the pool house, a Bunkhouse has been set up (Orphan Grain Train has brought in one of their volunteer housing containers). The Bunkhouse can sleep a total of 12 people. It consists of two units that are equipped with electricity, air conditioning, heating and three sets of bunk beds.Volunteers staying at the bunkhouse have access to the restrooms and showers at the pool house as well. At the bunk house, grills are allowed for cooking meals but no open flame pits.

Another option that is now available is for groups from out of state is to stay at Our Savior Lutheran Church. To get in contact with them please use the following information:

Rev. Kenneth Weander Jr.
2500 W. Norfolk Ave., Norfolk, NE 68701-4427

If you're not sure you want to sleep on the floor, and have to "rough it" for the time you are there, you may still want to consider a hotel or motel.The following towns are 45 minutes or less from Pilger: Wisner, West Point, Wakefield, Pender, Oakland and Norfolk.

We do not charge for our services. We are Christians and offer our services in the name of Jesus Christ. We are serving through St John, Lutheran Church in Pilger. Even though the church's building and the parsonage no longer exist, please call St. John at 402-396-3478 the day before departing for further instructions and update of your arrival time.
