Special Appeal from our Kare-9 Military Dogs to Help a Marine Family in North Carolina with Medical Needs - Thank You for Your Generous Donations to Help Little Geronime Print E-mail
Recently, LCC received an email from Avis Rebecca requesting blankets for her youngest son. Due to his severe medical conditions the family is strapped for funds.

When LCC learned the full extent of the family's situation an appeal was sent out to help raise funds for this hurting family.

On Saturday, October 26, LCC staff members Jim Morrison and Norm Gotsch went to Jacksonville, North Carolina, to deliver the money to Avis and her family.

The appreciation they felt for what had been done for them was resounding and Norm and Jim wanted to share with you a little of what went on in that meeting. You can watch the interview by clicking on the video above.

Little GeronimeLittle Man Geronime was born in May 2013. Doctors did not expect him to survive, to go home, or to celebrate his first birthday. But God said differently and Little Man Geronime celebrated his first birthday in May.

Little Man Geronime has 28 medical diagnoses and is under the care of 16 medical professionals . This year the family has already had over $7,000 in unexpected expenses and needs our help. His father is a Marine currently stationed in North Carolina. Mom is not able to earn an income because taking care of Little Geronime is not only a full-time job, but a 24/7 blessing.

Disabled Family Members in Need of Funds to Relocate Print E-mail
Pastor Schilf Request from Pastor Warren Schilf, Immanuel Lutheran Church, Palatine, Illinois

Immanuel is working with a longtime member family who is in need of assistance.

The daughter is moving her father and one disabled brother to a new residence in Arizona, and her other disabled brother to Minnesota. They have sold their house in Palatine; she will move to an apartment in the area.

The moving expenses will exceed what they have from the sale of the house. The brother who is moving into disabled housing in Minnesota also needs assistance with the deposit on the apartment.

The moving expenses and deposit are $4,000. Immanuel is working with the family on some additional needs. Any assistance they can receive to help them through this difficult time will be a tremendous blessing.

Special Appeal from our Kare-9 Military Dogs to help a Marine Family in North Carolina with Medical Needs Print E-mail

Please join the LCC Kare-9 Military Ministry dogs in showing the Mercy, Compassion, Presence, and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to this Marine family in need.

Little Geronime Little Geronime was born in May 2013. Doctors did not expect him to survive, to go home, or to celebrate his first birthday. But God said differently and Little Geronime celebrated his first birthday in May.

Little Geronime has 28 medical diagnoses and is under the care of 16 medical professionals (https://www.facebook.com/LittleGeronime). This year the family has already had over $7,000 in unexpected expenses and needs our help.

His father is a Marine currently stationed in North Carolina. Mom is not able to earn an income because taking care of Little Geronime is not only a full-time job, but a 24/7 blessing. Recently, she posted on Facebook:

Geronime with his momLittle man can not play chase with the little girl that is 6 months younger than him.
There was no cake and no birthday party when he turned 1, we were getting ready for more surgeries and he cant eat solids anyway.
I can't teach him to say "up" or "milk" because half the time he doesn't even want to wear his hearing aids.
I am disgusted by dirty looks from women in church who were told that they can't bring a stroller in, because I wish I could hold my child in my lap like they can. I am not able to go to any "adult only" events because even licensed nurses refuse to babysit my child.
My husband desperately wants to go on a date without kids, but knows that is not a possibility.
Anyone who thinks a crying hungry baby is horrible, should try listening to a machine that goes "bee-doo bee-doo bee-doo" over and over again every 3 hours.
Some people can't afford certain things because they are undisciplined with money. We strap ourselves in tight, do everything right, and still can't do those things because that "cute helmet" cost $1800, and we still don't know if the insurance will pay for the last bit of his most recent surgery, and gas for 3 hour drives to the hospital are not always reimbursable.

But would I trade lives with those moms if I could?

No!
God gave me a family that doesn't give up, no matter what the challenge is!
My hubs knows when I need a hug, and he tries to be so strong for me that sometimes I have to forcefully pry to get him to tell me about his own troubles.
While other babies are expected to meet milestones, we celebrate every time ours surpassed all odds to achieve something that wasn't expected of him!
While other babies cry because they are spoiled and get whatever they want, mine smiles excitedly when by his determination alone he finally wiggles the 6 inches it takes to reach his foot off of the mat so he can tap it on the wood floor!
My children are deprived of many fun things and still are able to behave in public, often getting compliments from perfect strangers.
We have a church family now that is so much more encouraging than the church "friends" that stopped talking to me when I was pregnant with a very different 3rd child!
My little man proves that there is NO such thing as a legit excuse, they don't exist!
My God provides, at some point we will have everything we need one way or another!
The woman I used to be, is no where near as strong as God is making me to be!

And most importantly...
I know women who are stronger than me, because their baby is already waiting for them in heaven...

Mine is still alive,
Isn't that, all by itself, enough to be happy about...
