School Starts June 1 - Myanmar Lutheran School Scholarships Needed! Print E-mail
Myanmar $3,900 will send 66 students to a Lutheran School for 5 months

While most of our schools will soon be closing for the summer, June 1st will be the opening day for the Lutheran School in Myanmar (formally Burma). Last year because of your generous gifts, LCC was able to provide scholarships for 59 children to 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 66 students is only $3,900.

Last year LCC supported 59 students. 57 students passed their final exam. Thanks to God and Thanks to LCC and the donors.

2 students are not able to sit exam last March. Because they have no house in Yangon the whole family moved back to their home village.

This year some primary students become middle class and some middle class become higher class. Some higher will go to university.

Here is the new list for this year:

Class # of Students Cost Total
Primary 10 $25 $250
Middle 22 $50 $1,100
Higher 34 $75 $2,550
Grand Total 66 $3,900

All the children are very interested to continue their education. But their parents are not able to support them. All students are from poorest family.

I and my church pray that this year also God will bless these poor students like last years.

God bless you all.
Rev. Charles Edwards
Pastor | National Lutheran Church of Myanmar

Flint Water Crisis - St Paul Lutheran Church and School Needs Your Help! Print E-mail
LCC received the following email from Jeffrey B. Walsh, Pastor of St Paul Lutheran Church and School in Flint, Michigan requesting assistance:
Flint Water Greetings to you in Christ Jesus!

In April 2014, the Flint water source was changed because of financial concerns. While the source passed tests for quality, the chemicals added to keep the water clean caused the leeching of the pipes (of lead and lead solder) into the water of many homes, businesses and churches.

Our water at St Paul was noticeably orange (because of our cast iron pipes), and we made several changes to how we used water. While we were assured of pure water coming from the source, we chose to allow our parents to send bottled water with the children. Our cook brought in water or purchased water for all cooking and drinking.

In September of 2015 we were notified that some people had been exposed to lead poisoning through the water and that young children were at the most risk. At that point we closed all of our drinking fountains, put up water coolers next to them and had our water tested. In October, our water source was changed back to Detroit water, but that did not change the damage to the pipes that is the reason for lead in the water.

Our latest water tests show that we have some lead in our water system. That is why we are getting bids on a water filtration system for our church and school. We will also need to replace our school dishwasher.

We are grateful for the many churches and schools who have and are now donating water bottles to us. Yet, we need to look into a permanent solution with a water filtration system. Flint Water

St. Paul Lutheran School is the last remaining LC-MS school in Flint. We are a multicultural school working to share Jesus with our community and our world. We have just over 100 students in Preschool through 8th grade, and a toddler program.

St Paul Lutheran Church is a congregation that worships 240 each Sunday. We work to impact our community through Mobile Food Pantries, a food closet, a reading program in our public elementary school, and help with Franklin Avenue Mission in Flint.

Thank you for reading this story and considering us for help.

In Christ,
Jeffrey B. Walsh, Pastor
St Paul Lutheran Church and School

Help LCC Keep This Veteran Center Serving THREE Hot Meals a Day! Print E-mail
RTW Each day between 100 and 150 people depend on free meals from the RTW (Remaking The World) Veterans Center on Chicago’s south side. However, those free meals and other services may not continue if the center cannot make the repairs the city is demanding (the city has noted 32 code violations).

Remaking the World Veterans Center (RTW), across from Washington Park, was founded to help homeless veterans and their families. They prepare food for more than 4,500 people every month, they offer job training, a warming center, a clothes depository and right before Christmas had a toy give-away for neighborhood kids. RTW does all this without receiving any federal, state or city aid for these services.

RTW LCC staff, Comfort and Kare 9 dogs visited with the men andwomen who serve these veterans and were able to present a check to cover the cost of window repairs. We will continue to work with RTW to bring the building up to code. Those repairs include: furnaces for the basement and the first floor, new stoves and ovens for the kitchen, plus repairs to keep sewage from seeping into the basement.

Through the generosity of donors, Lutheran Church Charities has already been able to help but much more needs to be done. $20,000 is needed for the repair of a broken sewage pipe and to get the gas turned back on.

Please help veterans and their families stay fed and warmthrough your gift to RTW. CLICK HERE

or call 866-455-6466.

We thank you for any and every contribution you may be able to give to help those who have served our country. Help LCC help this center to stay open and to continue to serve a drastically UNDERSERVED population of veterans - all with the Mercy and Compassion of Jesus Christ!

Help us serve those who have faithfully SERVED OUR COUNTRY."

Help Keep Chicago South Side Veteran Center Open that Serves Underserved and Homeless Veterans and others! The City of Chicago is trying to close it! Print E-mail
Veteran Center The City of Chicago has tried to close a Military Veteran run center serving the underserved and homeless veterans on the south side of Chicago. The have 33 plus code violations – but bottom line they would like it closed down to make room for the Obama Library. LCC along with the RTW (Remaking the World) volunteers went to court and got an extension to make the repairs. This veteran volunteer run home serves breakfast, lunch and dinner to homeless veterans – 4500 plus meals a month.

On Saturday, December 19th, LCC Kare 9 Martin, Zina and LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Luther visited the Remaking the World (RTW) Veteran Center for their annual toy drive. LCC staff were also present to assess the needs of this center as it fights to keep its doors open.

Veteran Center

The RTW Veteran Center was opened in 2010 in the Washington Park area on the south side of Chicago. It has been serving hot meals to all the homeless and those in need as well as assist homeless veterans in finding places to live and employment. RTW serves 4500 plates per month. The center also has a clothing room in which those in need receive clothes as well as offers a warming program to keep the homeless and poor warm during the cold winter months. Many of these veterans and other families are in desperate need of space heaters. When we visited the center, the average temperature inside the center was 54 degrees.

To donate a space heater ($30-50) to help the homeless being served by the RTW, please CLICK HERE

OR if you have space heaters you would like to donate you can bring them to LCC Headquarters at 3020 Milwaukee Ave in Northbrook, Illinois and place them in the specially marked semi trailer. LCC will deliver all working space heaters to those served by RTW.

Veteran Center

Recently, an inspection of the 80 plus year-old building found violations, which if not attended to, will cause the RTW to close. They have an open door policy for ALL veterans that renders them ineligible for government funding. The most urgent needs at this time are to rehabilitate the sewer connection (there is a smell of raw sewage in the house, a professional bid to repair is $20,000), repair six exterior windows, and renovate the roof. RTW will be forced to close their doors in May without your support.

To gift to RTW to support building renovations to help them continue to serve veterans, their families, and the community, CLICK HERE

In addition, the two person kitchen has two stoves, one does not work and the other has burners not working. To purchase new stoves (electric) contact LCC at 866-455-6466 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

or to donate to replace them CLICK HERE

We thank you for any and every contribution you may be able to give to help those who have served our country. Help LCC help this center to stay open and to continue to serve a drastically UNDERSERVED population of veterans – all with the Mercy and Compassion of Jesus Christ!

Jesus Christ came not to be served but to serve in need.

To Jesus – it was not about STATUS but SERVICE!

Bibles Needed for Seekers and Converts - Update Print E-mail
Bibles

On Friday, November, 27th, LCC received the following email from Pastor Hesham Shehab (Salam Christian Fellowship - Lombard, IL) as an update to THIS APPEAL

“Thomas, a convert from Islam who fled Yemen for his faith and joined Salam two weeks ago told me a touching story:
It took me six years to find a hard copy of the New Testament in Yemen. Before that, I used to read bits and piece online, but I had not held a Bible in my hand until then. It was a time of euphoria for me. I kept reading it again and again for days...barely catching some sleep," Thomas said.

We take our freedoms for granted and should be more aggressive in sharing the Gospel to the lost.

Since we founded Salam Christian Fellowship in 2007, we have distributed thousands of Bibles to Iranian, Iraqi, and Syrian refugees, in addition to college students.

This Christmas season, we have run out of Bibles and we need your urgent contribution to spread the Word of God so that we could offer Muslims the Spirit of Life this season.”
