Pastor Fritz Request from Pastor John Fritz of Hope Evangelical Lutheran Church in Aurora, Illinois

On Tuesday, September 23, LCC received the following request

In May, Shaye walked and ran the two miles to our church so that she wouldn't miss her baptism when her ride failed to deliver.

She works full time and is seeking a part-time job. After surviving a traumatic event which left her estranged from family and without a place to live, Shay is receiving shelter and aide on a temporary basis. Our small congregation is helping provide transportation and helping aid the transition to safe, independent living.

With a reliable vehicle Shay will be able to make it to her jobs and finance her continuing education. Please remember this hard-working, motivated young survivor in your prayers.

LCC Staff and Volunteers Attend 2014 Lutheran International Disaster Response Conference Print E-mail
Conference This past week, LCC staff members Dianna Bonfield, Joel Moritz, Derek Kowalczyk, and volunteers Ed Boerman and Mike Flaherty attended Standing with Mercy in Times of Disaster, the 2014 Lutheran International Disaster Response Conference at Concordia Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana, from September 23-26.

One of the highlights of the conference this year was the opportunity to meet the Presidents and some of the pastors from some of the countries where we responded to disasters in the past years.

Some of the countries represented were: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Haiti, Kenya, Liberia, Lebanon, the Middle East, Mexico, the Philippines and Taiwan. Another highlight was to meet in person some of the people from local disasters in other districts that have only been reached by phone and to get an update from them about what is happening at the present time in those areas.

There were District Presidents, District Disaster Response Coordinators (DDRC) and District Disaster Response Team (DDRT) members from areas LCC has worked in the last few years, including: New England - Sandy Hook and Boston Bombing; New York - Hurricane Sandy; Texas District - plant explosion in West, Texas; Moore, Oklahoma & Oklahoma District office - tornado clean up; Joplin, Missouri - tornado clean up; Arkansas - tornado clean up; Colorado District - fires and floods; Nebraska District - tornado clean up in Pilger, Nebraska; and the South Wisconsin District - tornado clean up.

(Pictured above is DDRC Derek Lecakes of the Atlanta District with LCC staff members Joel Moritz and Dianna Bonfield)

As in all the disasters we respond to, people are the most important thing, listening to them and supporting them in their recovery; so too it was with this conference. There were a lot of papers and reports presented but the contact with people with whom we have worked with and ministered with was the most important part of the conference.

Family in Need After Flooding and Accident Print E-mail
Pastor Eaves Request from Pastor Thomas Eaves of St. John's, Barnesville Minnesota

On Tuesday, September 23, LCC received the following request

Assistance is needed for a family in our community that our congregation is trying to help. The basement of their home was flooded just as they had begun to remodel the home.

A year after the flood the husband was involved in a freak accident that left him partially handicapped and unable to find a job. The wife was working, but recently had their third child causing her to be unable to work as childcare is not available.

During this time, they have been able to pay for necessities, but the repairs to the home are only possible with donations of time, talent, and money. Family members are maxed out on helping with finances. Installing a furnace and landscaping to prevent further flooding still needs to be done before winter arrives. Any assistance that could be given would be received with great thanksgiving to the Lord.
