Training the Trainer Classes Still Open! Print E-mail
Trainers Needed LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and Kare-9 Ministry Dogs have touched the lives of countless people with the Mercy and Compassion of Jesus Christ. Because God has blessed these ministries, the demand for dogs from our churches, schools, veterans and colleges is so great LCC is starting another training class for trainers.

You can learn how to use LCC’s dogs to bring solace to individuals and families who are suffering pain or loss. In addition to the comforting aspects of LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and Kare-9 Ministry Dogs, we use the dogs to open conversation with people who are hurting. The ministry is not about the dogs, it is about sharing the love of Christ with people and dogs open the doors. Many people are shy about approaching strangers, but well-trained dogs are not. They gravitate toward people, especially those who are hurting.

If you would like to learn how to become a trainer of one of our precious golden retrievers and help them become LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs, sign up for our Apprentice Comfort Dog Training Course. There will be a limited number of people we can train so if you are interested, please fill out the application soon. The training classes will be offered in two separate Illinois locations, Northbrook and Pontiac.

School Starts June 1! Myanmar Lutheran School Scholarships Needed! Print E-mail
Myanmar Last year because of your donations, LCC was able to provide scholarships for 30 children to the Lutheran School in Myanmar (formerly Burma). However this year we are far short of that and the school now has 59 students from pre-school to high school who want a Christian education. But time is running out! While most of our schools will soon be closing for the summer, next Monday will be the opening day for the Lutheran School in Myanmar.

Since 2011, LCC has been raising funds for scholarships so that the children of Pastor Edwards' church can attend school. The scholarships cover the cost of fees, text books, exercise books, school bags, pens, pencils, rulers, erasers, correction pens, colored pencils, compass boxes, school uniforms and rain coats or umbrellas. A Christian education in Myanmar only costs from $25 - $75 per student for five months of school. To cover scholarships for all 59 students is only $3,375.

Myanmar As Pastor Thomas wrote, “The parents are very poor and unable to buy these things to their children…my church is preaching the Gospel to the poorest community and the Holy Spirit is working wonderfully. Hundreds of people have never heard about Gospel of Jesus. Once a week my church preaches them regularly.”

Remembrance of Civil War Soldiers at St. John Lutheran Church in Darien, IL Print E-mail
Civil War Marker Last Saturday a Kare-9 team of Flex, Britta, and Shami with their veteran handlers attended an special event at St. John Lutheran Church cemetery, in Darien, Illinois. The ceremony honored those who fought in the Civil War. St. John worked with Phillip Sheridan Camp #2, Illinois Sons of Union veterans of the Civil War, and the Darien Historical Society to put this ceremony together.

The question for veterans and handlers Fred, Jim, Norm, Dale and Joyce was how would the dogs respond to the cannon fire? The answer? Like any well-trained military unit.

Kare – 9 Dogs Were Very Busy on Memorial Day Print E-mail
Memorial Day Parades This past Memorial Day LCC had Kare-9 teams in multiple parades and remembrances. One of the largest was in Arlington Heights, IL from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Because of inclement weather, the parade was cancelled, so the event was moved indoors to celebrate the 96th annual Memorial Day celebration for Arlington Heights.

Kare-9 Ministry Dogs, Tara and Buck, greeted attendees from all branches of the service and all US wars dating back to WW II. Dignitaries included U. S. Senator (and veteran) Mark Kirk, John Scully the civilian aide to the Secretary of the Army and Robert Stack, a Gold Star father who spoke about his son who was lost a few years ago.

The event featured several wreaths to honor the fallen and ringing a bell after reading the names of each person from Arlington Heights who was lost in war. The day closed with a 21-Gun Salute, and taps.

In addition to Arlington Heights, parade and other Illinois appearances by the LCC Kare-9 teams were in Glenview, Rockford and Schaumburg.
