Lutheran Church Charities Human Care Ministry Partners with Trinity, Roselle, to BE THERE for a Pregnant Young Widow with Five Children
“I thank LCC for all the donations. It’s hard being a single mom of six kids. I don’t know where I’d be without LCC right now.” Jessica, widowed mom of six
In the wake of her husband's sudden passing and a new baby on the way, Jessica was overwhelmed and struggling to provide for her family. She turned to her church, Trinity Lutheran in Roselle, Illinois. Despite the congregation's efforts to support the family and obtain government assistance, the family’s needs were more than the church could support. In August 2022, Trinity contacted LCC’s Human Care Ministry.
“Pastor Doug Warmann and his wife have been my rock. They went above and beyond to help me and my children. They didn’t hesitate to act in my time of need. Lutheran Church Charities really helped out because they were able to take care of all the necessities that my family acquired at that time, including bills.”
Despite facing numerous hardships, this determined family has managed to not only survive but thrive, thanks to the kindness and generosity of those around them. Through the power of unity and compassion, Jessica and her children have found hope in an otherwise challenging world. Their inspiring story serves as a reminder that, with the power of community and faith, we can overcome any obstacle and create a brighter future.
“I know that God loves me and he will always be there for me.”
Thank you for BEING THERE with LCC to make a difference
in the lives Jessica and her six children.
