In March, the Trinity Lutheran Church, Hobart, Indiana LCC K-9 Ministry team attended handler training and met their LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Jael. Since then, the team has actively trained with the K-9 Comfort Dog to build on their handling skills. LCC is pleased to announce that the Trinity Lutheran team has completed the placement process.
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Jael joins LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Barnabas and Isaiah to serve as the church’s bridge to show the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those suffering and in need. Jael Comfort Dog’s Bible verse is 2 Corinthians 3:5-6: “It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own. Our qualification comes from God. He has enabled us to be ministers of his new covenant. This is a covenant not of written laws, but of the Spirit. The old written covenant ends in death; but under the new covenant, the Spirit gives life.”
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?” Trinity's team has heard the call and has said, “Here I am. Send me.”
Trinity's handlers and caregivers for LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Jael include:
Dan Fulkerson (Top Dog), Sherri Berquist, Karen Fulkerson, Marcella Kunstek, Tim Kunstek, Tess Schnabel, and Mary Wells
LCC is honored to include the following veteran handler to the LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry:
Robert Berquist (U.S. Army, 1981-1989)
God is with them as they continue serving their surrounding community as part of the LCC K-9 Ministry. Please keep the Trinity Lutheran Church LCC K-9 Comfort Dog team in your prayers for God’s guidance as they go out to share, with so many who are hurting and alone, the Mercy, Compassion, Presence, and Proclamation of Jesus Christ.
