LCC K-9 Ministry Teams Comfort Families of the Colorado Marshall Fire as They Cope with Their Losses
The Colorado Marshall Fire has burned more than 6,000 acres and spread east across Superior, Louisville, and unincorporated Boulder County last week, destroying over 1,100 homes and businesses. The fire is the most destructive wildfire in state history. Currently, two people are still reported missing.
On Tuesday, January 4, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Cubby and Devorah (Redeemer – Fort Collins, Colorado) and their teams were invited by Ascent Community Church in Louisville and were present on Tuesday evening with displaced families as they learned if their home had survived or was destroyed by the fires. Ascent Community Church is one of the designated resource centers supporting families affected by this tragedy. Many tears are being shed as people are realizing the extent of the damage and all that they have lost.
The LCC K-9 Ministry teams will be present in Louisville the rest of this week to bring comfort, love, hope, and reassurance that they are not alone. They will continue to serve this hurting community as the requests come in for the Comfort Dogs and their handlers to be present.
The LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry NEVER charges those we serve as we bring the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those suffering and in need. We know that comfort is needed to help this shocked and devastated community and the first responders who serve them.
