LCC was blessed to have fourteen new handlers representing ten affiliates from ten states at the Replacement Handler Training last weekend. LCC is happy to welcome these wonderful individuals who have been called to go out and serve their home communities to share the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus Christ to those in need.
The handlers spent a lot of time learning new handling skills and building their knowledge about the ministry. Each handler worked with either their affiliate’s dog or with a LCC K-9 Comfort Dog in training.

LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Rahab (St. Andrews Lutheran Church - Stockton)
