Together, over four days at the fair, they spent time with over 2,000 school-aged children, adults, and many veterans. The Waco Chapter of Thrivent Financial invited and arranged the five-day visit for the K-9 Comfort & Kare-9 Dogs and their handlers.

The team was interviewed on KNED-TV; visited Friends for Life, an adult day care for the developmentally disabled; spent time with kids at Waco Childhood Center that serves low-income families; Golden Years elder care facility; and early childhood schools at Trinity Lutheran in Riesel, Texas, and Grace Lutheran in Marlin, Texas.

The team had a busy weekend schedule with visits to Riesel Elementary School and Riesel High School, including a pep rally and football game Friday night.

On Saturday, the teams attended a memorial service for 6-year-old Conner Maines, who was killed in an automobile accident in September. On Sunday, the teams attended worship at Trinity Lutheran in Riesel, a hamburger lunch with the Lion's Club, and finished the trip with a dinner hosted by the Waco Chapter of Thrivent Financial at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Bellmead,Texas.

Both the dogs and their handlers enjoyed getting to meet new and wonderful people as well as spread the Mercy and Compassion of Christ Jesus to those in need.

Logo On Tuesday, October 7, the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs responded with love and support to the St. Peter Lutheran Church and School in Arlington Heights as they grieved the loss of one of their own.

Principal Bruce Rudi's daughter was unexpectedly called home to be with her Lord earlier that day. During times like these it is hard to understand and comprehend such a tragic loss. A friendly face can do wonders to help with the coping and grieving process of losing one who is close to you.

Ten LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs, including the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Summer Class of 2015, Comfort Dog in-training Aaron, Susie (St. Peter, Arlington Heights) and Tara (LCC) along with their handlers, responded to the needs of the St. Peter Church and School students, staff, and faculty at the end of the school day to bring them comfort in this time of hurt.

Three Comfort Dogs will be present at chapel in the morning. Please be sure to keep Principal Rudi, his wife Carol, and all of the Rudi friends and family in your prayers as they go through this difficult time.
