Lutheran Church Charities and affiliate teams from the LCC K-9 Ministry attended the wake and funeral this week of another member of the LCC K-9 Ministry family. After a long battle with cancer, Rick Duerr was welcomed to his Heavenly home on Saturday, September 9. Prior to his illness, Rick and his family were caregivers to LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Jackson (Immanuel Lutheran – Joplin, Missouri). Through our sadness, we are comforted by the promises of our Risen Savior, Jesus Christ. Please join us in praying for his family, the Immanuel – Joplin K-9 Ministry team, and all those who have been touched by Rick’s presence.
“The God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered
a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.” 1 Peter 5:10
