New St. Andrew School Opens in Cebu City, Philippines and Needs Your Help! Print E-mail
St. Andrew LCC received a request from Tom Grunow (Christ Lutheran Church, Lincoln, NE) regarding a new Lutheran school in the Philippines. On June 8th, New St. Andrew School opened with 102 K-10th grade students in Cebu City, Philippines. The opening of the school was in doubt at one time; however, by the grace of God, it opened its doors and continues to grow on a regular basis. St. Andrew will offer night and Saturday classes, similar to “continuing education” for those who work and for parents (even for college credit) with an expected enrollment of 100 students. By 2016, the plan is to work with the Lutheran Church of the Philippines to begin Lutheran Worship services, Bible Class and Sunday School on Sundays and to charter as a Lutheran School. In order to accomplish these goals, donations are needed.

Devastating Fire Takes the Life of St. Matthew Lutheran Church (Chicago, IL) Parishioner Print E-mail

Children in Critical and Serious Conditions; Father Treated for Burns

In the early morning of Friday, July 10th, a destructive fire took the life of Korissa Valdivia Chupp and left her two children in serious and critical conditions. Firefighters at the scene found the children clustered in their mother’s arms. The two children, Jerry (6 years old) and Kiara (2 years old), suffered burns and are now in intensive care at Cook County Hospital in Chicago. Their father, Tony, suffered minor burns on his hand and his foot. Because he inhaled lots of smoke in his attempt to save his family, he has lung problems. He is expected to continue with treatment for his lungs.

Last April, funds were raised through LCC for this family after their apartment burned down and they lost all of their possessions.

LCC never charges those we serve. To see the original appeal, CLICK HERE.

Tony has been a member of St. Matthew Lutheran Church in the Pilsen community of Chicago since age 7. He assists with bilingual worship services (English/Spanish) at the church. This tragedy has caused a lot of grief to the relatives and members of St. Matthew. Please keep all those affected in your prayers as they cope with this horrific tragedy and consider donating to help this family

Emma Can Hear Now But Her Family is Struggling with Medical Bills Print E-mail
Emma Pastor Marc Cohen, St. Matthew Lutheran Church, Barrington, Illinois has been counseling a family with a young daughter who was diagnosed with a brain tumor. It’s been one year since the diagnosis. She has undergone two major surgeries including a spinal fusion and shunt to prepare her for the surgery that would remove the tumor. She had lost her hearing, but can now hear again. Her vision was also affected, and she continues to have headaches and sinus problems. Her family feels extremely blessed that Emma’s MRI has come back okay and that she has returned to playing. While these are really positive signs, her family is in a large amount of debt from medical bills that continue to put a lot of strain on the family.

Please pray for Emma and her family during this stressful time. If you can help, please contribute to Emma’s Medical Bills. And remember 100% of all donations to a special fund like this go to the fund – dollar-in, dollar-out.
