Your Generous Donations Help Support a Recently Widowed Mom With Five Children and Expecting Another Child in March 2023
In mid-August, I asked Lutheran Church Charities to assist in helping a grieving family of five children with another child on the way in Roselle through their challenging time. Their father died suddenly at the end of June, leaving the mother and children in need.
The response has been amazing! God is so good! The family is so grateful for the support received. Without your help, I can’t imagine where they would be.
The mother has not been able to work for the last month because of a work-related injury and is currently undergoing physical therapy. She is hoping to begin work again in November. The two older kids have started school, and the three younger children go to daycare.
They continue to grieve the absence of their father. Their need continues as the mother prepares for another child in March, and she may need to move into another home to accommodate the additional child.
Your help enables the family to pay their bills, especially rent, transportation, and childcare expenses.
If God so leads you to give, please prayerfully consider partnering with those at Trinity, Roselle, to help the pregnant mother provide for her five children.
Thank you for your kindness and the hope you are giving the family!

Your Continued Donations Provide Financial Assistance for a Single Mom of Four Whose Daughter Is Battling Cancer
On Saturday, September 3, volunteers from Immanuel Lutheran in Glenview, Illinois, and a volunteer from Crystal Lake helped clean up the garden bed at Lutheran Church Charities headquarters. In just two hours, the team pulled the weeds, bagged them, and cleaned the flower beds.
Thank you to all the volunteers for donating their time to make the LCC garden beautiful again!
