On Friday, December 13th, there was a school shooting at Arapahoe High School. Many in this community are still shaken by the memory of the Columbine High School shooting that took place on April 20, 1999. Columbine High School is less than 10 miles away from Arapahoe High School. K-9 Comfort Dogs Shami, Barnabas and Hannah, along with their handlers, flew from Chicago and met up with K-9 Comfort Dog Moses who traveled with his handlers from Nebraska.

The team worked out of the two Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) congregations, Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church and Our Father Lutheran Church. .

On Sunday, December 15th, the K-9 Comfort Dog team spent time at Our Father Lutheran Church where they met with Director of Christian Education Micah Steiner and the church youth group of high school students. Emotions were raw and tears flowed and healing began. The K-9 Comfort Dogs brought peace and comfort and Jesus was there with everyone.

K-9 Comfort Dogs in Colorado after High School ShootingsOn Monday, December 16th, the team spent much of their morning and afternoon at the two church locations, Our Father and Shepherd of the Hills. They met with people from the church as well as community members. Tuesday they worked at the SouthGlenn mall where many of the students were hanging out since school has been cancelled until January, 2014. The team traveled home Tuesday night and LCC is monitoring the situation with the churches to see if and when further deployments would take place. Please keep this community in your prayers as the healing, both physical and mental, begins.

Just wanted to write you to let you know how thankful I am for the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog ministry.

Eddie was a trooper as we were practicing the commands with him and walking him through all of the paces. I am excited to continue practicing the new skills I have learned today.

Thank you for all YOU have done in Washington. I have learned A LOT from you and many of the team members over the past two weeks. I am blessed to be a small part of your team in Washington to help bring hope to the lives that have been turned upside down. I am looking forward to many more years of service and helping to expand your ministry. Hope you are doing well.
