In July, Christ the King Lutheran Church, Lake Ozark, Missouri, attended handler training and met their K-9 Comfort Dog Boaz. Since that time, the team has actively trained and built a relationship with K-9 Boaz. LCC is pleased to announce that Christ the King has successfully completed the placement process. The team was commissioned by Pastor Ron Lehenbaurer on Sunday, September 27.
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Boaz will serve as Christ the King Lutheran Church’s bridge to show the mercy, compassion, presence, and proclamation of Jesus Christ to those who are suffering and in need. K-9 Comfort Dog Boaz's Bible verse is Galatians 1 John 4:19 “We love because he first loved us.”
The LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry is one of presence. When the Lord calls, we must go and serve Him. Isaiah 6:8 tells us, “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I. Send me.’”
The following new LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry handlers have heard that call:
Top Dog Deb Graf, Cheryl Conroy, Michael Graf, Linda Linsenbardt, Robert Moeckel, Maggie Moe, Victoria Schoening, and Bob Tostenrud.
LCC is honored to include the following law enforcement handler to the LCC K-9 Police Ministry: Bob Tostenrud, Officer - Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department (1975-1979)
God is with them as they begin this new journey as part of the LCC K-9 Ministry.
