On Wednesday, May 19, LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Myra (St. Andrews - Park Ridge, Illinois) and her handlers visited Grace English Lutheran School in Chicago, Illinois.
Grace English Lutheran School had collected offerings all school year for the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry, and the students were excited to present what they had received. LCC K-9 Ministry is very blessed by their very generous donation.
The children spent time with Myra and learned more about the important job of being an LCC K-9 Comfort Dog.
"The children of Grace thoroughly enjoyed their visit! They listened intently while Pastor Doering presented the ministry of the LCC and the Comfort Dogs. Then, they asked a few questions after being able to pet Myra. Of course, our most enthusiastic students were our youngest. When asked, they gave me a list of feelings. They told me they were excited, felt joy, were 'joyful' Myra was calming and relaxing. They felt happy and loved. They are looking forward to the visit again next year."
