On Monday, March 1, LCC K-9 Military Ministry Dog Candace (LCC Staff) and her veteran handler Pastor Rod Armon and LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Rhoda (Prince of Peace - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin) with her handlers Peggy and Ray Pitroski visited Immanuel Lutheran School in Marshfield, Wisconsin.
What a wonderful afternoon we had! We enjoyed an uplifting praise song in the chapel, and Pastor Armon spoke of all our blessings from God. We talked a bit about comfort dogs' history and purpose and then broke into small groups for petting and visiting. The students there are a delight, and we had such fun!!
It was interesting that Candace was wearing her military vest, and it happened to be "camouflage" day at Immanuel. Most everyone there was wearing camouflage clothing - it was a theme! We later closed with another praise song. Praise was so appropriate in that God certainly blessed our visit there. Thank you again, Immanuel, for the privilege of spending time with you!!
