Update from the Haitian Lutheran Mission Project Print E-mail
Haiti With your support we have kept the Haitian Lutheran orphanage open by supplying the children with food, clothes and education in a loving Christian atmosphere. Your support has enabled us to pay 26 village teachers, the teachers in Fond Rouge, reopen the Philadelphia school in the city of Jeremie and through Trinity Hope Lutheran Church provide a daily meal for the children in Dame Marie. Trinity Hope is also able to continue supplying a daily meal in the other schools as well.

The Lutheran Teachers from Philadelphia Lutheran School in Jeremie sent this response in a letter:

"Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,
Peace and God's Grace be with you. We the teachers of the Lutheran Schools in Jeremie, can't find the right words to thank you. THANKS is not the word. But THANK YOU."
Haiti Compared to Lutheran and public school teachers in the United States, Haitian Lutheran School teachers make on average about $45 a month. Often these dedicated teachers continue to carry on even though some months the funds are not there to pay the teachers. When that happens often they are forced to look for secondary jobs just to support their families. Thank you for demonstrating the Lord's love and compassion for these orphans and the people of Haiti through your donations. Donate to Sponsor a Haitian Teacher or Pastor

Challenge Grant from Good Samaritan Ministries for St. Matthew Boiler Fund Print E-mail
Lopez For the last few weeks we have been encouraging donations to the St. Matthew soup kitchen so that they may buy a new boiler. Thanks to Good Samaritan Ministries in Palatine here is even more encouragement. Good Samaritan Ministries is making a matching gift donation to the St. Matthew boiler fund. They will match dollar-for-dollar every donation made to the fund up to $10,000. If we are able to make that match, more than $20,000 will be in the fund, which will allow St. Matthew to replace the boiler and continue in their worship and service to their Chicago community.

Please prayerfully consider a special gift to this matching donation and make the replacement boiler a reality.

St. Matthew in Need of Funds for Boiler to Help Cope with Winter Cold Print E-mail
Loza

Request from Pastor Loza of St. Matthew Chicago

On Sunday, January 4, St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Chicago held its bilingual service in the fellowship hall because the church boiler quit working. According to Pastor Julio A. Loza, a new boiler would cost about $24,000. St. Matthew has been providing hot meals and spiritual food for thousands of homeless and poor families for 26 years. They have been able to install a temporary heating system to prevent the water pipes from freezing, but a new boiler is the only long-term answer. We ask that you prayerfully consider helping with the cost so that St. Matthew may continue being the Hands and Feet of Christ to those in need.

This Holiday Season Do Not Forget to Feed the Hungry Print E-mail
St. Matthews UPDATE: On Tuesday, LCC staff member Joel Moritz visited St Matthew's Soup Kitchen in Chicago to present a check for the mission. Pastor Loza accepted the donations you so graciously gave in an effort to give homeless and hungry people of the area a warm Christmas meal.

LCC is grateful to be able to help those with means to give a gift to those without this Christmas season. Your donations make a difference.

Help Feed Those in Need this Christmas

With the winter season upon us it is important to remember those who have nothing. As the cold sets in it is important to help feed those in need.

Please prayerfully consider helping St. Matthew in their mission to feed the hungry of Chicago.

The soup kitchen at St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Chicago, Illinois first opened 27 years ago. Originally they were only open one day a week for lunch. They are now open every Tuesday and Thursday to serve breakfast AND lunch. They average 75 to 100 people a day; most live in the community around the church. The majority are Hispanic, Anglo-Eastern European, and African American. St Matthew is able to continue this ministry from the support they receive from congregations and from donors who respond to appeals through LCC.

Church in North St. Louis in Need of Support to Get a Vicar Print E-mail
Pastor Andrus

Request from Reverend Dave Andrus - Blind LCMS Pastor at St. Paul Lutheran Church in College Hill, St. Louis

Ministry is heightened in the face of unrest, riots and disturbances as it relates to this summer’s shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson Missouri. St. Paul's is in the thick of things as it provides Pastoral Ministry services to the St. Louis City's North Side, from the neighborhood near West Florissant and Grand Ave.

Only a few miles away from the riots: families are connected; cultures are related; hearts and lives that are hurting and confused are ministered to; God is at work through St. Paul, a revitalizing congregation.

A 3-year plan is in place and it starts with a full-time Vicar beginning in June 2015, leading to a Pastor. The church and community needs a full time worker; providing pastoral care and missionary outreach.

Your contributions can help ministry expand by making that a reality.

Please consider offering your prayers and support for this ministry in North St. Louis City, to help bring healing in this time of need.

Help Bring the Word of God to Ethiopian Immigrant Children Print E-mail

Request from Hicham Chehab, Salam Christian Fellowship, Lombard

Ethiopian Girls LCC received the following email from Pastor Chehab who is looking to bring the Word of God to Ethiopian immigrants.
Dear Friends,

Salam is trying to provide Bibles to a large group of Ethiopian girls who meet in Lebanon and rent space from a local church in order to study the Word of God every Sunday. Those are poor house maids who work at the homes of the rich and the privileged in Lebanon. The numbers of those overworked and many times abused womenfind rest in Jesus Christ every week. 250 Amheric (language of Ethiopia) Bibles are needed. The only source of the desired translation is a Lutheran church in Ethiopia.The cost for the 250 copies of those study Bibles is $ 7500 that will be managed through our Lutheran Hour Ministry in Beirut, Lebanon.Please help us spread the Gospel in the "Devil's den," by supporting this wonderful project.

Radio Tower

$10,000 Needed to Bring Concordia FM International Radio to Haiti

Request from Pastor Marky Kessa, President of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Haiti (ELCH)

Update: Because of your generous donations, the ELCH has been able to purchase the radio tower. $7,000 is still needed for the remaining start-up costs to outfit and run the radio station

For the past several years it has been the dream of the ELCH to have a radio station in Jacmel that would broadcast Concordia FM International.

Radio is the fastest way to reach thousands at a time with the Gospel. In the words of Pastor Kessa, "This is my dream, a place I can feel free to talk about our faith in Christ! And many, many souls will be saved. So let us pray God can open doors."

Radio Station

LCC has learned that a tower is now available in Jacmel for purchase. By being able to purchase an existing tower the ELCH will be able to start and run a radio station for $10,000.

Please consider joining LCC and the ELCH as we work to bring Concordia International Radio to Haiti. The fields are ripe unto harvest right now

The Haitian Lutheran Mission Project Needs Your Support to Keep Lutheran Schools Open in Haiti

education in Haiti Sue Gross from the Haitian Lutheran Mission Project shares this urgent request for your help to raise funds to pay the teachers' salaries at the Lutheran Schools in Jeremie.

Our Teachers' Support is almost down to zero. We will not be able to pay our teacher's salaries after next month. We are working on some alternative methods to keep the schools open but the reality of this situation is that some of our schools may close. Unfortunately once the schools close Trinity Hope will also stop their Feeding Program of 1 bowl of rice and beans per child per day. The teacher's salary is $50.00 a month. If they do not receive this payment they are forced to seek employment elsewhere so they can feed their families. There are a total of 20 teachers that serve the schools in Jeremie and the surrounding villages for 12 months a year. $600 will provides a salary for one school teacher for a year. Your support will help keep the schools open and will provide one bowl of rice and beans per child per day to the children of our Lutheran Schools in Jeremie and surrounding villages.

We desperately need sponsors to keep these schools open for at least one more year until we can find other sources of income for their salaries.

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.
