LCC received this update and request from Pastor Edwards:
Greetings from Yangon.
Hope that all LCC staff are fine and well by the grace and blessings of God.
It is great and amazing that all my 70 students passed their exams. I am very happy that 2 students from Grade 11 got very high marks. So they are ready to enter university. So I put them in my scholarship request this year.
Here is my scholarship request to LCC.
10 students × $25 = $250
24 students × $50 = $1,200
36 students × $75 = $2,700
2 students × $150= $300
Total cost: $4,450
I and my church trust that God will surely bless my poor students again this year.
This year my country economy is not good. Many rich persons (army personnel) do not invest in my country. So there are no jobs for lower people. (hard laborers)
Please pray for my country and poor people.
I and my members pray for this scholarship request and for LCC donors on a regular basis.
Again, thanks for your kindness and love to my students.

These puppies will begin their journey training to be LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs. Through time, patience, repetition, consistency, love, and guidance from their apprentice trainers, one day Abraham, Benjamin and Micah will serve as bridges with three other congregations to reach those who are suffering and in need.
