African Pastor in Need of Car to Continue Spreading the Word of God to African Immigrants Print E-mail
Pastor McClean On July 18, LCC received the following email:
We are looking for a car for Pastor Anthony Nwokeneme. Tony is a pastor to African Immigrants in Indianapolis. He has a call to St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Indianapolis, but they are not able to pay him.

After a long process Pastor Tony is a U.S. Citizen. He completed his vicarage in August, 2012. He was to bring his wife and daughter from Nigeria at the end of 2012, but his wife became ill and died of a brain tumor at the end of November, 2012. It took us until July of 2013, for Tony to be able to bring his daughter, Leah, back to the U.S.

Tony currently works as a driver for Sherwin-Williams to make ends meet. On Thursday, July 17, he was involved in a serious car accident that rolled his car three times and left it totaled.God was with him and he was not injured.

It is critical for him to have a car in order to get to work and continue to build a ministry to African Immigrants in Indianapolis. He is in desperate need of a car.Thank you for your prayer and your consideration of this need

Sincerely,
Pastor David McClean

Family in Need of Car to Make Ends Meet Print E-mail
Lopez Family Request from Rev. Michael Graham

The family of Edin Lopez of Plano, Illinois, is in critical need of another automobile.

Edin is a Lutheran from Guatemala who moved to this country several years ago with his aunt and her husband who was an LCMS missionary in Guatemala. He is now married to his wife Oralia and they have two children, Edin Jr. and Caleb.

Edin has to work two full-time jobs to barely make ends meet since his wife sustained a back injury a few years ago at her work and is now of limited mobility.

Yesterday, July 20, he was involved in an automobile accident on his way home from one of his jobs and the car was totaled. The family desperately needs a vehicle for Edin to get to his two jobs.

Single Mom Needs Financial Assistance to Afford Critical Surgery Print E-mail
Pastor Koeseter Request from Pastor Kevin Koeseter, St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church, Brookfield, Illinois

One of the members of our congregation, with her 10-year-old son in the room, passed out and needed the paramedics to revive her. She was found to be in need of 6 units of blood. The diagnosis? Stomach tumors that were causing blood loss, pain, and weakness.

Surgery to remove the tumors is being denied because it is too costly and Medicaid considers it unnecessary. Indeed, it is costly, several thousands of dollars, and without the surgery, one can continue to live, but only with great risk and fear.

In time, the tumors are likely to turn cancerous. In the meantime, they can rupture and require immediate medical attention. Besides the fear and risk that her son may lose his mother, the physical pain and weakness continue, and make normal day-to-day tasks difficult.

Currently, she is on medication to shrink the tumors, but it isn't completely effective. Beyond that, medical assistance is available to her only when there's an immediate threat to her life. ...unless she can pay for the surgery and follow-up medication out of pocket. The surgery would last 12-15 hours and would require reconstruction of her abdominal area.

When hospitals and insurance companies make decisions based upon finances, we in the Christian Church can make decisions based upon love. The family is hosting a benefit dinner in September to raise funds for the surgery. If you are so inclined to help also, please assist as you are able.

Appeal for a Pastor Undergoing Second Liver Transplant Print E-mail
Pastor Mangold Request from Pastor Bruce Scarbeary of Trinity Lutheran Church in Roanoke, Illinois:

The congregations of Trinity Lutheran Church in LaRose, Illinois and St. John's Lutheran Church in Washburn, Illinois are raising funds for Pastor Ken Mangold.

Pastor Mangold graduated from Metamora Township High School in 1987. Two years later, he married Lisa Vollrath, a member of Our Redeemer in Eureka, Illinois. Lisa was very active in events while she was a student at Eureka College. Lisa and Ken have been married for 25 years and have 3 children - Alyssa, John, and Aleena. In December of 2013, Ken was hospitalized with a high fever, chills and abdominal pain. After nearly 70 days in the hospital since then, Ken was diagnosed with a return of a liver disease known as PSC (primary sclerosing cholangitis). Previously, this disease led to the need for a liver transplant that was done at the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin in 2006.

This return of the disease is now causing the need for a second liver transplant, and Ken is currently on the waiting list for this to be done. This has also caused significant financial need, as Ken has been forced to resign as pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church and St. John's Lutheran Church. There have been extraordinary expenses incurred with travel and lodging for the family, as they must travel to Madison, Wisconsin, for his treatment.

Please consider helping the Mangold family in their time of need. The cause is wonderful and the need is great.
