7 PEOPLE KILLED AND 21 INJURED
For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13
In the same month as mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs will once again deploy in less than 24 hours in response to yet another horrific mass shooting in Odessa, Texas.
On Saturday, August 31, seven people plus the shooter have been killed, twenty-one injured and hundreds traumatized when a gunman opened fire in a series of shootings in western Texas. The incident began during a traffic stop where the gunman shot the officer and then began his shooting spree.
The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs just completed two weeks of deployment after the shooting at Walmart in El Paso, Texas on August 3.
LCC is a ministry of compassion and presence. We know that comfort is needed at this time to help people heal from yet another senseless and horrific shooing. Help us be the presence of Jesus Christ to this community.
LCC never goes where we are not invited and the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs NEVER charge those we serve. We pick up all of our travel, hotel, and meals costs. We also always put boots and paws on the ground within 24 hours (often fewer) from the time we get the invite.
LCC Disaster Response staff continues to monitor Hurricane Dorian as it approaches Florida and the East Coast. Please keep those communities and the first responders in your prayers.
Thank you for being a part of the Mercy and Compassion Ministry of Lutheran Church Charities.
