Hurricane Ian created much destruction in its path. Families lost homes, vehicles, and items filled with precious memories. It is during those times of loss we need each other even more.
LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Moriah (St. Luke - Oviedo, Florida), and Peace (Trinity - Orlando, Florida), and their dedicated handlers traveled over three hours to be with the children, office staff, and teachers at Zion Lutheran Church Early Childhood Center and Saint Michael Lutheran Church & School in Fort Meyers, Florida.
The children and staff at Zion and Saint Michael loved their time with Moriah and Peace, finding comfort, peace, and warmth in their soft fur and gentle manners. Seeing the children and adults smile and know they feel loved is always a gift.
We continue to pray for and support those communities in Florida that are still recovering from the damage done by this massive storm.
