LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Amos (Our Savior’s Way - Ashburn, Virginia), Kezia (Emmanuel - Baltimore, Maryland ), and Solomon (King of Glory - Williamsburg, Virginia) were invited to spend the weekend of March 24-26 at the LCMS Southeast District middle school youth gathering in Williamsburg, Virginia.
The comfort dogs were present to share Jesus’ love, bring smiles and furry hugs, and foster connections with nearly 250 youth and volunteers. The team handlers helped illustrate the weekend’s theme: Together: Living in Christ-Centered Community by explaining our mission of mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation through pictures of their ministry so that the youth could see what living in Christ and drawing people closer to Jesus looks like.
While together, the comfort dog teams went out into the Williamsburg community to meet and share the love of Jesus with those that God placed in their path.
It was truly a joyous weekend being together in faith, connecting hearts and minds to Jesus.
