Dear Friends,
We have a new convert from Islam immigrant who needs a room in the North or Western suburbs of Chicago. He could pay $200 rent. The ideal place would be a Christian family. Mo, 36, speaks English and drives, but smokes. Mo left his family and escaped persecution in Jordan for the sake of Christ.

Michigan Pastor Requires Assistance for Critical Surgery – UPDATE Print E-mail
Richard Tino In July, LCC received a request from Rev. Dr. James Tino (Global Lutheran Outreach) regarding his cousin Rev. Richard Tino (Peace Lutheran Church, Sandusky, MI) in need of an operation that his insurance will not cover. He inhaled a large quantity of smoke over 20 years ago while serving as a volunteer fireman and as a result, suffers from lung problems.

To read the original appeal, CLICK HERE

On Wednesday, October 28th, LCC received the following email from Rev. Richard Tino:

I had my first successful operation on my lungs last Wednesday, October 21st. I am scheduled for the remaining two operations in 3 week intervals, around November 11 and December 2. The doctor said the first procedure went very well, and that based on what he saw in my lungs, inflamed airways, he expects to see very positive results from these three procedures. The finances have been a bit frustrating, as the hospital keeps raising and lowering their estimate. The final price is $24,000.00. Through Lutheran Church Charities and other donors we have raised $15,000.00! I am paying as I go, roughly $8,000.00 per operation.

Please pray for Rev. Tino and consider gifting to his Medical Expense Fund. CLICK HERE to gift

Urgent Plea for Assistance for Casualties of Mass Shooting at Oregon's Umpqua Community College Print E-mail
Roseburg Oregon
LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs asked to deploy to Roseburg, Oregon to serve the victims, their families, and the grieving community.
Horror! Terror! Fear!
It is simply unimaginable what those on the campus in this quiet community must have suffered.
10 are Dead
9 are Injured
The suspect is reported dead.
Facts are still being gathered but an eyewitness has given testimony that one by one the shooter asked each to stand and state their religion.
The Christians were shot and killed.
The healing for so many in this small rural community is just beginning.

While the story was just being reported, LCC received a call from the Northwest District Disaster Response Coordinator, The Rev. Ron Norris, requesting the deployment of our LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs in response to this horrific, mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon. Following that initial call, the president of the Northwest District, Rev. Paul A. Linnemann invited the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and handlers to Oregon to assist their district with reaching those who are in need, with the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ.

At this time, an LCC K-9 Comfort Dog team of 6 dogs and handlers is preparing for deployment to this small community of approximately 22,000 people, to offer comfort to the many whose lives have now changed. Our team will have the opportunity to share the GOSPEL as our Comfort Dogs open hearts and doors.

Just 7 miles from the campus, which has 3,300 full time students and 16,000 part time students, is St. Paul Lutheran Church and School Roseburg.

Roseburg Oregon Please consider the trauma that this community must be suffering after a horrific incident like this. The victims, their families, the faculty and staff, the early responders. The list goes on. Heartbreak, chaos and overwhelming grief. Sharing the love of God is a great gift and comfort for this tragic situation where Christians were allegedly targeted.

PLEASE give now to support our LCC K-9 Comfort Dog team as they answer the call to deploy. Without your support, this travel is simply not possible.

Join us in praying for the families of those who have been killed and those wounded in this tragic shooting. Let us pray for the community of Roseburg and for all those hurting and please hold our team in prayer as they travel to Oregon.

Your Donations Making a Difference in the Lives of Widower and Family Who Lost Wife, Mother in Fire Print E-mail
”St. LCC staff member Deaconess Dianna Bonfield, accompanied by Deaconess Intern Marissa Arndt, had the honor of representing all the LCC donors who reached out to assist St. Matthew, Chicago. Because of your help, they were able to share the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus Christ to the family of Tony Valdivia and family after a fire destroyed their home and claimed the life of their beloved wife and mother, Korissa. To read the original story, CLICK HERE

After receiving the check on behalf of St. Matthew, Church Pastor Loza asked Dianna to address the congregation about the work of LCC.

Tony thanked St. Matthew and all those from LCC who have helped and encouraged him. He shared with everyone that it had been two weeks since 3 yr. old Kiara was released from the hospital. This Thursday, 6 yr. old Jerry will be released from the hospital as well.

Through this whole ordeal, people tell Tony to find strength in his children. Tony witnesses that, while his focus is on his children, he draws his strength from God and because Jesus died for us, he knows Korissa is in heaven, and that he and the children will see her again. That is his strength and hope to go on.

This small family has a long road ahead. All the medical bills have not even started coming in yet for Tony or the children for the many months they were in the burn unit and for all the surgeries. Both of the children will have to wear compression burn suits for some time as their skin graph, muscles and tendons heal. As their young bodies grow they will need new compression suits which are very expensive. Jerry had severe facial burns which will require him to wear a facial compression burn mask that is over $600 each time that is replaced. The burn shirt and leotard each are several times more expensive.

Please keep Tony and the children in your prayers. The Monday following Jerry’s release from the hospital will be a particularly difficult time as it is Korissa’s birthday and she will not be with them.

Assistance Given to Family of Four Thanks to Your Generous Donations Print E-mail
Jamie On Saturday, September 5, LCC received the following email from Rev. Dr. Micheal M. Strong (Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, Farmersville, IL) regarding Jamie and her family in need of rental assistance:
Many thanks are due to all the folk who helped this family through some difficult times. Enough financial help was received that LCC was able, not only to pay a rent bill, but also pay part of a car insurance bill that was past due. Jamie is still working two part-time jobs and has started doing hair in her home. Needless to say she is a busy lady. We also spoke with her mother who often times has to pick up the boy from school because of Jamie’s work schedule. Along with Jamie she expressed her thanks to the unknown people who have helped her. Jamie’s daughter attended school away from hone during the week and come home every weekend. Unfortunately, Jamie will not be getting any help from her husband as he has gotten in trouble with the law. Please continue to pray for her as she has a tremendous burden on her shoulders.

LCC would like to thank all of the donors who gave so generously to this family.
