Last Week (June 26-28), Light of the Valley Lutheran Church in Elk Grove, California and Redeemer Lutheran Church in Spokane, Washington 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:
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Micah Light of the Valley – Elk Grove, California
Mary Ann Taylor
LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Handler: Susan Mason, U.S. Army, 1971-2011
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Marie Redeemer – Spokane, Washington
LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Handler: Babette Hess, U.S. Air Force, 1969-1970
We extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our volunteer handlers for their dedication to the LCC K-9 Ministry.
