Devastating Fire Takes the Life of St. Matthew Lutheran Church (Chicago, IL) Parishioner Print E-mail

Children in Critical and Serious Conditions; Father Treated for Burns

In the early morning of Friday, July 10th, a destructive fire took the life of Korissa Valdivia Chupp and left her two children in serious and critical conditions. Firefighters at the scene found the children clustered in their mother’s arms. The two children, Jerry (6 years old) and Kiara (2 years old), suffered burns and are now in intensive care at Cook County Hospital in Chicago. Their father, Tony, suffered minor burns on his hand and his foot. Because he inhaled lots of smoke in his attempt to save his family, he has lung problems. He is expected to continue with treatment for his lungs.

Last April, funds were raised through LCC for this family after their apartment burned down and they lost all of their possessions.

LCC never charges those we serve. To see the original appeal, CLICK HERE.

Tony has been a member of St. Matthew Lutheran Church in the Pilsen community of Chicago since age 7. He assists with bilingual worship services (English/Spanish) at the church. This tragedy has caused a lot of grief to the relatives and members of St. Matthew. Please keep all those affected in your prayers as they cope with this horrific tragedy and consider donating to help this family

Michigan Pastor Requires Assistance for Critical Surgery Print E-mail
Richard Tino Request from Rev. Dr. James Tino, Director, Global Lutheran Outreach:
“My cousin, Rev. Richard Tino (Peace Lutheran Church LCMS, Sandusky, MI) needs an operation that his insurance will not cover. Richard inhaled a large quantity of smoke over 20 years ago while serving as a volunteer fireman. The smoke damaged his lungs, causing the airways to constrict unnaturally. His airways constrict when he coughs or exerts himself, causing complete loss of lung function and blackouts. The only available treatment has been high steroid dosages, which have caused a lot of other health problems. Richard has been hospitalized numerous times, and faced death on two occasions. Recently, a new type of surgery has become available which could help him regain a normal life. However his insurance company has labeled the surgery as ‘experimental’ and will not cover it.”
His family has already raised $3,000 of the $17,000 needed for this surgery. Please pray for Rev. Tino and consider donating to his Medical Expense Fund.

$780 Will Provide Relief from the Hot Haitian Summer for a Family with a New Baby Print E-mail
Kessa Marky LCC received the following request from Jackie Rychel, the Executive Director of Ministry in Mission, from Pastor Marky Kessa, President of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Haiti. Nathan Prevot has been a familiar face to many mission teams working in Jacmel, Haiti at the First Lutheran Church. Nathan has shared his talent with many and is the organizer of the "God's Plus" musical group. He is now studying to become a Pastor in Haiti.

Dear brothers and sisters,

I choose to write to you on behalf of Nathan family, his wife going to have a baby soon. They live without power and July, August and September are very hot in Haiti.

I am looking for your help so his wife and new baby have a way to provide some power:

  • $400 for two batteries
  • inventor = $ 100
  • solar panel = $210
  • regulator = $ 70
The total is $780 since Nathan is able to do the work himself. With this equipment, the family will have light and fans for the whole day and night.

Please try to do anything you could do for this family
Rev. Marky Kessa

Travel Trailer Needed for Couple Whose Home was Severely Damaged by Flooding Print E-mail
Pastor Matthew LCC received the following request from Pastor Matthew Blackford (pictured), Lord of Life Lutheran Church, LaFox, IL
We have a retired couple whose house sustained severe flooding in the recent storms. The house is currently uninhabitable. Because of insurance complications the couple is responsible for paying for and supervising the repair work. They do not want to leave the property while the work is being completed so they are in need of a travel trailer that they can cook and sleep in. They do not need electricity (the house has electricity restored) or bathroom facilities, just a place to sleep and do light cooking. They would need the trailer for approximately two months.
If you have a travel trailer they could use please contact LCC at 866-455-6466 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Family of Four Needs Rental Help Due to Recent Disability Print E-mail
Rental Assistance LCC received the following request for assistance this week from Rev. Dr. Micheal M Strong, Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, Farmersville, IL:
Rental AssistanceA family of four – husband (disabled), daughter (14) deaf, autistic and Tourette’s syndrome, a son (first grade) and the wife (employed part time) are in need financial help. They need $750 for rent for the month of June. The landlord seems to be willing to take payments in part over a period of time as they have lived in the same house for some time. It was the husband becoming disabled that has put them in this financial jam. It is a simple request. $750 does not seem like much, but when you do not have it, it is a huge amount. Jamie, the wife, sat in the church telling me her story. While she appeared composed, and almost matter of fact about her problems, it was not long before she began to quietly cry when she spoke of the tension her lack of rent money was creating within the family. While Jamie is a Baptist, she is not attending church because of her work schedule, and seems open to attending Zion Evangelical Lutheran when she can. She will receive a friendly welcome for certain. Any donations will certainly help.
