LCC received the following email from Rev. Charles Edwards, pastor of the National Lutheran Church of Myanmar:

Dear LCC
Wonderful God provides!
When I informed them about the donations my members were shouting and give thanks to God and to you. Some do not believe. They said impossible!
My students were happy also. God is great.
I and my members give thanks to you because you tried hard for us.

School Starts June 1! Myanmar Lutheran School Scholarships Needed! Print E-mail
Myanmar Last year because of your donations, LCC was able to provide scholarships for 30 children to the Lutheran School in Myanmar (formerly Burma). However this year we are far short of that and the school now has 59 students from pre-school to high school who want a Christian education. But time is running out! While most of our schools will soon be closing for the summer, next Monday will be the opening day for the Lutheran School in Myanmar.

Since 2011, LCC has been raising funds for scholarships so that the children of Pastor Edwards' church can attend school. The scholarships cover the cost of fees, text books, exercise books, school bags, pens, pencils, rulers, erasers, correction pens, colored pencils, compass boxes, school uniforms and rain coats or umbrellas. A Christian education in Myanmar only costs from $25 - $75 per student for five months of school. To cover scholarships for all 59 students is only $3,375.

Myanmar As Pastor Thomas wrote, “The parents are very poor and unable to buy these things to their children…my church is preaching the Gospel to the poorest community and the Holy Spirit is working wonderfully. Hundreds of people have never heard about Gospel of Jesus. Once a week my church preaches them regularly.”

$57 (Average) Sends a Student to the Lutheran School in Myanmar Print E-mail
Myanmar LCC received the following request from Rev. Charles Edwards, pastor of the National Lutheran Church of Myanmar. Since 2011, LCC has been raising funds for scholarships so that the children of Pastor Edwards' church can attend school. The scholarships cover the cost of the admission fees, text and exercise books, uniforms, raincoats and school supplies. A Christian education in Myanmar only costs from $25-$75 per student for five months of school. Last year, because of your generous donations, we were able to cover the costs for 30 children. The school now has 59 students from Primary to High School. To cover scholarships for all 59 students is only $3,375.
Greetings from Yangon, Myanmar.

Last year the LCC gave scholarships to 30 students from my church. I sent all photos to Vida last year. They all passed the exam and they will be in higher classes. The school will reopen on 1st June and the old and new students from my church requested help for their education.

Myanmar My church is located in a poorest area of Yangon Division (other bank of Hlaing River). Almost of my members are new believers and they are all hard laborers (daily wages). It is very hard on them to supporting their children’s education. But they are interesting to continue their children’s education.

The following is a list of the students and the costs for half education year. (For 5 month only)

Class Number of Students Cost/Student Total
Primary 11 $25 USD $275 USD
Middle 20 $50 USD $1,000 USD
Higher 28 $75 USD $2,100 USD
Total 59 Students $3,375 USD

Total cost for 59 children is 3375 USD.

These costs are for text books, exercise books, school bags, ball pens, pencils, rulers, erasers, correction pens, color- pencils, compass boxes, school uniforms and rain coat or umbrellas.

The parents are very poor and unable to buy these things to their children. These children are from all my church preaching centers.

My church is preaching the Gospel to the poorest community and the Holy Spirit is working wonderfully. Hundreds of people have never heard about Gospel of Jesus. Once a week my church preaches them regularly. Please pray for our church.

I and my members pray and hope that God will help these poor students through LCC like last year.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Blessings.
Rev. Charles Edwards

National Lutheran Church of Myanmar

Dignity for Girls - Family in Faith - Glendale Heights Print E-mail
Dignity for Girls Sew In Because of your donations, LCC was able to write a check to Dignity For Girls to help purchase materials so feminine hygiene kits can be made to insure girls in Kenya can go to school everyday.

The interest in Dignity for Girls in Kenya has been overwhelming. Many church and LWML women, quilters, girl scouts, youth groups, and more have become involved in being the solution to this dire situation. The sewing of these feminine hygiene packs is simple and inexpensive, but will allow each girl who receives one the ability to stay in school rather than miss days each month.

For information about the patterns and materials CLICK HERE

The website shows you all that is needed to make a ‘culturally appropriate’ kit. This April, we are sending 200 kits to the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Kenya. They will be distributed to the poorest of the poor who are often in families that are afflicted with AIDS. If you are interested in making kits for Kenya please contact us and we can provide information for the 2016 shipping to Kenya CLICK HERE

Prayers for the Philippeans as They Prepare for Another Typhoon Print E-mail
Boy after typhoon Just a little over one year after Typhoon Haiyan devastated many regions of the Philippians, the people are again bracing for another storm.

Typhoon Hagupit is expected to make landfall on Saturday. The storm currently has winds of up to 149 MPH and could cause storm surges of up to 13 feet.

Many people are still dealing with the devastation caused by Haiyan and we ask that you keep those who stand in the path of the storm in your thoughts and prayers. May God be with all those who may be affected by this storm.

On Tuesday, August 26, LCC received the following request:
Greetings in the name of our Savior.

The building projects were finished with LCMS in Haiti over a year ago when the funds ran out from LCMS - but we still have needs with our people.

Haiti Girl with Food

Many people are still asking for a house as they continue to live in tents, some have needs for repair to their roof and so on. LCMS built over 100 houses. The numbers of people living in the tent cities has gone down, but there are still many living in tents.

Haitian Kids with Food

The environment change in some areas is bad. Like, in Jacmel the biggest problem, that those people have now, no latrine for more than 200 families. As many nonprofit organizations leaving the country, so many of them, parent and kids ask for food, clothes, shoes because they have no job or work. The church sometimes distributes shoes to them, we give what we have, we preach, evangelizing , teaching.

The water filter is very good, if we can have 500 that will be very useful ($45 ea). We need bigger one for the school and orphanage. ($750 ea.)

Tim with Kid
    Our need now:
  • 200 toilets (latrine) cost $400 each
  • Feeding some kids at the tent city with $2.50 ea. Child - we have more than 100 to feed 2 times per week.
  • 500 water filter
  • Have a community store we people at the tent city can buy food for less price.
  • Have some school supplies for the school opening.
  • Goat project $40 to 50 per goat

LCC President Tim Hetzner meets with President James Cerdenola, President of the Lutheran Church in the Philippines Print E-mail
Lutheran Church of the Philippines Lutheran Church Charities has already given $20,000 to President James Cerdenola to help families still suffering from Super Typhoon Haiyan in November 2013. This past Friday, June 6th, LCC continues to provide support to our partners in the Philippines and here presents him with another $10,000 check to help families.

Although things are improving, much more work still needs to be done in helping families, many who just recently got electricity. In addition, to help families, LCC is raising funds to help the Pastors in the Philippines who are also suffering because of the conditions there. Many of the pastors live on the equivalent of $50 US dollars a month - with NO MEDICAL coverage. (click here to see video)

Please consider helping these servants and their families continue to serve those who are in need.
