In December 2023, Pastor Kurt Schilling of Emmaus Lutheran Church in Wisconsin and his wife Paulina suffered an unimaginable loss when they lost their four children - Daniel, Fabian, Lilian (9th grade), and Daniela (4th grade) - in a car crash. Paulina is originally from Ecuador, and Pastor Schilling was the children's stepfather.
Shortly after the accident, Pastor Steve Kline of Shepherd of the Hills in Greenville, Wisconsin, and a friend of Pastor Schilling reached out to LCC requesting Hearts of Mercy & Compassion and crosses to honor the children's memory. LCC was honored to provide Hearts of Mercy & Compassion, as well as crosses in memory of the children.
We were deeply moved to see our crosses carried high in front of each casket during the funeral procession in Ecuador, where the children were laid to rest. We pray for comfort and strength for the Schilling family during this difficult time, and we stand ready to provide support and care to anyone experiencing such a heart-wrenching loss.
