100% of Your Donations Will Support Ukrainians in Need
It is hard to watch the devastation taking place in Ukraine – the children, the elderly, those with disabilities! Young and Old. It is hard to see all the displaced people. The destruction.
God is still in charge. God will bring good out of evil and God ALWAYS wins over evil. It is humbling to be able to work with Christians from various “tribes” and join together as one in helping people.
“There is one body, one spirit … one Lord, one faith, one baptism” Ephesians 4:4-5
LCC has been and will continue to collect financial donations to be given out “Dollar per Dollar” to help the people of Ukraine to show the Mercy and Compassion of Jesus Christ. We work through Christian Pastors, Priests, Bishops and leaders. If they believe that Salvation is in Jesus Christ and Him alone – we work with them to have them directly distribute the money – within hours or a day or two. Not sitting around in a fund doing nothing.
Because of your support, below are those LCC has been working with this past week. We continue to hand out what comes in to help those suffering as a result of the Ukrainian crisis.
Ukrainian Church – Palatine, Illinois
On Saturday, March 5, LCC President/CEO Tim Hetzner met with Bishop Vededykt Alevsiychuk, Pastor - Archpriest Mykhailo Kuzma, Associate Pastor - Archpriest Yaroslav Mendyuk, and Nadiya Hnatyuk of the Ukrainian Church in Palatine, Illinois, to provide direct and immediate financial assistance to their contacts in Ukraine. Within 12 hours of that meeting, your donations were IN UKRAINE, helping people suffering and in need!
Watch Tim’s interviews with these brothers and sister in Christ to hear how we are all unified through our faith in Christ:
Oleg Ivanets, Ph.D., Assistant Professor at Concordia University
The Ukrainian crisis hits close to home for Oleg Ivanets, Ph.D., assistant professor at Concordia University and chair of the university's quantitative business program.
Oleg was born in Ukraine and lived there until 2013, when he moved to the United States to pursue his doctorate. He is based on the Ann Arbor campus but oversees programs for the Mequon campus as well.
He still has family and friends who live in the Ukraine with whom he is able to communicate. Your donations are helping LCC to bring Oleg’s family from Ukraine to safety in the United States.
Watch Oleg’s interview on Sunday, February 27, with Fox6 news reporter Sam Kraemer:
Pastor Scott Yount, Missionary in Ukraine, Immanuel Lutheran Church – Palatine, Illinois
LCC is providing support for Pastor Scott Yount and his wife Lena (from Ukraine) as they have had to leave Bila Tserkva, Ukraine but are now helping to support refugees from Ukraine. Pastor Scott and Lena are personal friends with Pastor Donald Antor from Immanuel Church in Palatine. Pastor Scott is working with his ministry of Spiritual Orphans Network.
Pastor Scott has been serving as a missionary in Ukraine since 2014 and is the founder of Joy 4 Ukraine, a ministry that brings the joy of the gospel to orphans and youth with disabilities. In 2017, Pastor Scott helped start Church of Hope, a worship service for people with special needs, and in 2021 began serving as the pastor of the Church of the Transfiguration, a local Ukrainian church. His wife, Lena, has a Master’s Degree in Special Needs Education.
Watch Pastor Scott Yount’s powerful message to Ukrainians: “Ukraine, you are not alone – for God is with you. Ukraine, you are not unprotected – for God is your fortress. Ukraine, you are not in darkness – Jesus is your light. Ukraine, you are not defeated – for Christ is your victory!”
Ukrainian Lutheran Church (ULC)
LCC is also working directly with the Ukraine Lutheran Church (ULC) by working through the Lutheran Church here in the United States in fellowship with them!
