Special In God’s Eyes Sends Comfort Packages, Including Stuffed Comfort Dogs, to San Bernardino, California Following Shootings Print E-mail
Comfort Dog Packages We are all aware of the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California on December 2nd. You may not be aware that people who work with those with special needs were among those targeted. This has deeply touched the hearts of Special In God's Eyes (SIGE), a special needs ministry of St. Matthew Lutheran Church, Barrington, Illinois. This ministry has met weekly for almost 7 years and provides a place where young people in their 20’s and 30’s can learn about the love of God. We hear God’s Word every week in our Bible study time, we do servant projects for those less fortunate, and we have fun.

The group raised money to put together comfort packages to be sent to Inland Regional Center for the Developmentally Disabled. Forty packages were made for adults and kids. Each of the twenty adult packages include the devotional “Jesus Calling”, special loose tea for a nice warm beverage, therapeutic rice pillows and dark chocolate bars. Each of the 20 children comfort packages include Bible story coloring books, crayons, LCC K-9 Comfort Dog stuffed animal, Play-Doh and candy.

The packages are being shipped to Trinity Lutheran Church in San Bernardino. The church will deliver them to the agency. Please pray that those affected by this senseless act of violence will find comfort in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and the care and concern of some very “special” young people.

In Unlikely Places Print E-mail
Unlikely Places We had an opportunity to sit and visit with one of the disaster relief volunteers in the relaxed atmosphere of her living room. We laughed, told stories and enjoyed each other’s company. During the course of our conversation our guest recounted the time she was first introduced to the ministry of the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs. Her first encounter was with Luther.
It was a very stressful time in life for me and I happened to be at an event where Luther was visiting. When I saw the dog, I knelt down on the floor to pet him. As I did, Luther placed his head against my cheek and all of a sudden my stress was gone. It was as if Luther knew I needed that moment.
The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs are so much more than just tail-wagging, fluffy creatures. Comfort Dogs serve a need that far too often is missed or overlooked by humans. Dogs have been known to sense emotion and respond to the needs of people long before the person even recognizes or acknowledges their need. So often as 21st century people, bombarded by technology and increased societal pressures, we become so overwhelmed and busy with life that our sensitivity meter can become short circuited; but not a canine. Research suggests that dogs really do respond uniquely to tears and the emotions of people. While so many of us can be distracted by the demands of life, the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs are anything but distracted; they are uniquely in tune with people and ready and willing to be a silent presence for so many in need.

The mission field is ever increasing. LCC continues to help bring mercy and compassion to a hurting world through the ministry of the Comfort Dogs as well as the veteran Kare 9 dogs. As we observe people encounter our LCC dogs in the most unlikely of places, we find that their world becomes a little less stress filled as the love of Jesus reaches beyond barriers.

And this is what ministry is all about. Touching lives; changing hearts.
