Families in Need
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

Your Donations Make a Difference in the Lives of a Military Family But Your Help Still Needed Print E-mail
Roger Britton The credit card burden has been lifted for Sgt. Roger Britton and his family. A majority of the car repairs desperately needed for this family have also been made. The car still needs some repairs, but it is now safe to operate and the family has transportation once again. Through the LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry and Operation Barnabas, LCC was able to make a difference in the lives of this family thanks to your generous gifts.

Mrs. Britton and the children had left on Monday to spend the week of Christmas with the Britton family in Minnesota. On Christmas Eve, Roger called his wife to share that LCC had contacted him to make arrangements to deliver a check to cover some of the car costs. Sarah’s response through her tears was “this is the best Christmas we have had in a long time”.

Thank you for showing your support and care for this military family. Click here to read the appeal.

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.

Pastoral Request for Medical Care for Alex Frerichs - West Nile Virus Survivor Print E-mail
Alex Pastor Steve Maske of Good Shepherd in Elgin, IL emailed LCC asking for support for one of its members, Alex Frerichs. Alex was infected with the devastating West Nile Virus in August 2012. Although she has made great progress, high medical costs jeopardize her future treatment. A friend of Alex describes the situation and asks for support:
"When Alex first contracted the virus she was in a coma for months and the year that followed she was in and out of hospitals, nursing homes and rehabilitation centers. Alex was left with limited mobility, she is wheelchair bound, unable to speak and in need of round the clock care. Alex is home now and is being cared for by her mother and father, Annette and Steve. After Alex became sick, Annette lost her job. Annette is Alex's caregiver; they work daily on getting her stronger. Alex is a very determined young lady and works very diligently with her exercises and therapies, unfortunately insurance will no longer cover her treatment of physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. Through the generosity of Angels for Alex, a fundraiser she had in 2013, they were able to at seek treatment at the Carrick Brain Center (www.carrickbraincenters.com) in Atlanta, Ga. She has also been able to work with a team of Integrative doctors here in the Chicago-land area to continue her rehabilitation from the Carrick Brain Center. All the doctors are confident Alex will eventually walk and talk again. It has been a slow progression but she is now able to move her legs slightly. Unfortunately the money from the fundraiser has run out. The family has also been denied financial help through the state to renovate their home to better take care of Alex. Annette and Steve also recently had to purchase a wheelchair accessible van to transport Alex due to the physical demands put on them from lifting her in and out of their vehicle. I believe God has a special plan for my friend Alex, not only has she has to fight this difficult virus but she is also a double transplant recipient."

Please pray for Alex and her family as she continues to recover. Please consider donating to aid her family with the medical costs, to donate CLICK HERE.

Dignity for Girls – Volunteer Sewers or Donations Needed for Kenyan Girls Print E-mail
Dignity for Girls Sew In In this country it seems we are constantly bombarded with advertising for personal hygiene products, but in many other countries those products may be non-existent, especially feminine hygiene products. Dignity for Girls is trying to change that in Kenya by producing washable feminine products that can be re-used. Currently girls and women in Kenya use “…leaves, mattress stuffing, newspaper, corn husks, …anything they can find...but still miss up to 2 months of school every year.”

Family in Faith Lutheran Church in Glendale Heights, Illinois is holding a “Dignity for Girls Sew In” on March 21 to sew specially designed hygiene kits for girls that can help them handle this with dignity.

To learn more about the Sew-In CLICK HERE
