Last week, St. Andrews Lutheran Church – Park Ridge, Illinois and Holy Cross – Fort Wayne, Indiana joined LCC staff for handler training. Each church was very excited to meet their new LCC K-9 Comfort Dog and to become part of the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry. The new handlers and caregivers spent many hours training in ministry and in handler skills.
The LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry is one of presence. When the Lord calls, we must go and serve Him.
Isaiah 6:8: Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send?” And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me.”
The following new handlers to the K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry have heard that call:

We extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our volunteer handlers for their dedication to the LCC K-9 Ministry.
