LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Elijah (Our Redeemer - Wichita Falls, Texas) and his ministry team received the following thank you note from a lady the team visited in the hospital. The LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry touches people more deeply than we can imagine.
Recently I was an inpatient in United Regional Hospital. It had been an exceptionally long and depressing day. My husband is unable to drive and is on a walker, and it's hard to get around easily, so I had been there for four days without visitors.
One day, in walked into my room, the most beautiful dog with precious handlers. Elijah came to my bedside and raised on his hind legs to greet me. He looked me directly in the eyes and melted my lonely feeling away. I began to cry, and he put his head in my lap. What joy he brought me that day! He is a gift! Thank you for this beautiful ministry. I am sure he brings joy and comfort to all he visits.
Thank you again!
