Financial Assistance Needed
LCC received a request from Pastor Michael Liese, St. Paul Lutheran Church, Brimfield, Illinois, for financial assistance for a family in need that St. Paul is assisting.
Mark is a former Lutheran School teacher and principal, and his wife, Susan, daughter of a Lutheran pastor, is a nurse. They have two children.
On Sunday, January 9, Susan suffered a hemorrhagic stroke and required emergency surgery. After surgery, Susan seemed to have lost her ability to speak and suffered a loss of movement in her right arm. Mark will be Susan’s full-time caregiver during her long road to recovery and will not be able to work until she is better.
They will need financial assistance to cover extensive medical bills and mortgage, utilities, and household expenses of approximately $3,500 a month.
UPDATE: Susan is slowly improving. Her dependence on the ventilator has decreased. Thank you for your prayers and financial support for this family as it strengthens their faith and gives them the courage to walk through this valley.
Lord have Mercy!
