Haitian Student in Need of $2500 for Christian Education in the US Print E-mail
Pasor Request from Pastor Tom Acton, Immanuel Lutheran Church, Palatine, Illinois
Immanuel is working with a single mother and her son to find additional financial help for her son to attend Christian Day School at Immanuel.

They have obtained some funding but still need $2,500 to make Christian education a reality. The mother will be joining Immanuel and the son is eager to learn about Jesus Christ.

The family immigrated from Haiti to Florida and recently to the northwest suburbs and have a significant financial need.

Immanuel is assisting the family but the need is greater than the congregation can do alone. Any donations will be such a blessing to this family as they make a new life here.

Mother in Desperate Need of Help to Repair Handicapped Son's Bathroom Print E-mail
Request from Pastor Warren Schlif, Immanuel Lutheran Church, Palatine, Illinois On August 1, LCC received the following email:
Our friend, Aleza Chikko of Schaumburg is in need of repair for her handicapped son's downstairs bathroom. pastor

We met Aleza through our Paint-a-Thon project last year, where we painted the entire exterior of her house. Aleza is no longer married, and continues to care for her 31 year old son Isaac who is mentally handicapped. Aleza has very limited resources financially and does not have the money, nor the ability to make these repairs on her own or even hire a contractor.

Essentially, the downstairs bathroom is in need of great repair, with the bathroom door barely hanging on it's hinges. The lights and the fan are not currently working, and the shower door is completely off its tracks. On top of that, the shower head is leaking continually into the tub.

Aleza is a Christian woman, who has contacted her church home, but they are unable to provide assistance. She has also made numerous calls to her township and other community service organizations with no offers to help.

Aleza is hoping to find someone who might be willing to donate their time and skills to help complete the repairs, or find people who might be willing to donate funds so that she can hire and pay for a contractor to perform the work.

Thanks
Pastor Warren

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

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 UPDATE: Thanks to your generous donations, LCC was able to send a check to help offset the cost of the surgery

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.
