Lutheran Church Charities Welcomes Immanuel – St. Charles, Missouri, and Our Savior’s Way – Ashburn, Virginia, to the K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry
On September 27 – 29, Immanuel Lutheran Church – St. Charles, Missouri, and Our Savior’s Way Lutheran Church – Ashburn, Virginia, 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 tell us “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 is honored to welcome the following individuals to the LCC Kare-9 Military Ministry:
Lewis Fruend, United States Army, 1964-1970
John Kluge, United States Air Force, 1983-2004
LCC is also honored to welcome Beth Cummings, Police Detective, Fairfax County (VA) PD (Ret.) to the LCC K-9 Police Ministry.
We extend a heartfelt thank you to Lewis, John, and Beth for their service and to all of our volunteer handlers for their dedication to the LCC K-9 Ministry.
