LCC K-9 Ministry Attends New Prospect Heights (Illinois) Police Chief, Deputy Chief and Sergeant Ceremony
LCC congratulates the newly appointed and thanks all law enforcement officers for their dedication to the communities they serve.
Having three LCC trainers plus Marie and Joanna Comfort Dogs-in-Training at the meeting to interact with the 10 regional dog teams was fantastic. In addition to the 10 Southwest teams, 2 Oklahoma teams in-waiting and 1 in the exploratory stage joined together at St. Paul Lutheran in Fort Worth, Texas. We enjoyed lots of training, great times of networking, sharing, good food, and fun! Jan Russell, from Bethany in Austin, provided instructions for her button bandana design and kits for each dog.

Abner & Martha (Bethany – Austin, Texas)

K-9 Police Ministry Dog Shiloh (Christ Our Savior – Dixon, Illinois) visited local police and sheriffs’ departments to deliver cards thanking everyone for their service. Boxes of dog treats were also delivered for the police canines, in honor of the 27 law enforcement dogs that were killed in the line of duty last year.
Miriam Comfort Dog in-Training visited the Deerfield (Illinois) Police Department to thank dispatchers and officers for the work they do to keep the community safe.

Purple was Lexi’s favorite color and students spent their time making memory bracelets, memory boards, and visiting with the Comfort Dogs. Please keep her family, students, faculty and staff in your prayers as they cope during this time.
Although we weren't able to visit with everyone who joined us on Christmas, I am thankful that several from LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dogs were able to help us give the Navy Recruits a day they will always remember! Thank you for all you did to help give the Navy Recruits a warm welcome and a show of appreciation for their willingness to sign up and serve in a time of war! We intend to host recruits again next year. Please join us if you can.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Bob and Linda Stack
