Jesus’s Love Flows Through YOU and LCC After 10 Years of Hurricane Katrina Recovery Print E-mail
Disaster
  Psalm 57:1
Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me,
   for in you I take refuge.
I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings
   until the disaster has passed.
Saturday, August 29th, 2015 served as the 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The massive superstorm was one of the most destructive in U.S. history and left over 1,200 people dead. LCC and other faith-based organizations were some of the first organizations allowed in. After the hurricane hit land, LCC initially organized a group of 30 volunteers with medical backgrounds, police officers, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), and other emergency personnel to help in the recovery process. DisasterOverall, well over 120 teams, 1,500 volunteers, and countless hours through LCC have been devoted to the recovery process in the areas hit by Hurricane Katrina. LCC has, and continues, to make a difference in the lives of thousands of people; all of which would not have been possible if it weren’t for the incredible volunteers who have given so freely of their time and energy. Even though there is work that still needs to be done, a lot of progress has been made. LCC would like that thank all of the volunteers who worked hard to spread the Mercy, Compassion, Presence, and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those who were affected by the disastrous hurricane.

Please Consider Supporting St. Paul's Lutheran Church- College Hill As They Expand Their Ministry in St. Louis, MO Print E-mail
St. Paul A year has passed since the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Just down the road, St. Paul's Lutheran Church is serving hurting, scared people because of this and countless other shootings in the neighborhood on the north side of St. Louis City.

Part of this service has involved reaching out to the children in the neighborhood, especially with Tuesday night Bible class, which offers a safe, loving atmosphere, a meal, and a chance for the children to learn more about Jesus. Four of these children have been baptized; seven more children and two adults will be baptized later this month.

A three-year plan is in place to expand ministry in the neighborhood. A vicar, James Kirschenmann, began work in June; ministry doors are opening. The church and community needs a full-time worker who can provide pastoral care and missionary outreach.

The community is extremely poor and cannot support ministry on its own-but God's people can! YOUR contributions will certainly help ministry in this embattled neighborhood.

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

LCC Kare-9 Military Ministry Visits “The Moving Wall” Print E-mail
Moving Wall The LCC Kare-9 Military Ministry visited "The Moving Wall” from August 20th through August 24th in Lockport, IL. The wall showed the names of those veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the Vietnam conflict. Veteran Bob Royce (with Kare-9 Blitz), veteran Keith & Judy Stanton, veteran Ward Dittmar (with Kare-9 Butch), veteran Fred Vanstrom (with Kare-9 Flex), veteran Brad Schroeder (with Kare-9 Susie), LCC staff members and veterans Jim Morrison (Brutus) and Norm Gotsch, as well as Pastor Mark Hein (with Comfort Dog Samuel), attended the event. Pastor Hein led the ceremony with an opening prayer, which was followed by the Kare-9 group speaking to several military personnel and their family members. It was discovered that some of the veterans were in Vietnam during the same time as a few of the LCC Kare-9 veterans. Officers of the Chicago Police Department, people playing bagpipes, politicians, and dignitaries from the area were present as well. The wall was very impressive despite the fact that it is the condensed version that is modeled after the wall in Washington, DC. Brad Schroeder describes the experience:icipants were appreciative.
We have met many people who have visited the Wall. Some have just come as they have never seen the Wall before. Many have come because they know a family member or friend who's name is on the Wall. Lots of Vietnam vets have come, undoubtedly knowing a name or names on the Wall.

One lady with a walker viewed the Wall with her family and then stopped to sit down. She bowed her head and she cried. As Susie and I walked by, Susie put her head on the lady's lap. The lady's sons name was on the Wall…

It has been 40 years since the Vietnam War ended. When we view the Wall containing 58,300 names of men and women who gave their all for their country there is emotion even though it was many years ago. For some, the loss of a loved one still has pain and grief. It is nice to see that these men and women who died for their country are not forgotten and are getting the recognition they so justly deserve. We must never forget them, as they served with honor and gave their lives for freedom. Also, there are hundreds of thousands of Vietnam vets that struggle each day with horrible memories that just won't go away. Please pray for them, that somehow they find peace from our Lord that they can hold onto.

The LCC Kare-9 Military Ministry spoke to several families and veterans, and they enjoyed very much petting and visiting with the dogs.

“River of Life” VBS leads to 8 Baptisms Print E-mail
River of Life LCC received the following message from former LCC staff member James Kirschenmann:
“We held VBS at St. Paul's College Hill (St. Louis, MO) for the first time in as long as anyone here can remember... July 27-30 we went through LHF’s (Lutheran Heritage Foundation) "River of Life VBS" curriculum. There were 18 students in that class. 8 of them came through the saving waters and joined the Body of Christ on August 23, 2015, with still more requesting to be baptized soon. Praise be to God!”
This wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for LHF supplying the Vacation Bible School materials. The materials and their experience at VBS greatly helped give the students an understanding of Holy Baptism as a sacrament. Rev. Matt Heise, Executive Director at LHF, helped St. Paul’s College Hill while he was a field worker and attending the seminary in St. Louis.

LCC would like to extend a heartfelt congratulations to these students and pray that their journey in faith is abundant and fruitful.
