Last week, LCC staff member, Deaconess Kathy O’Day delivered a $5,000 check for urgent funeral assistance to Pastor Duane Fluechtling at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Thornton, Illinois, for a family that suddenly and unexpectedly lost their wife, mother, and grandmother hours after emergency surgery.
Deaconess O’Day and Pastor Fluechtling were also able to visit and minister to Mr. B. and two of their daughters at St. Paul Lutheran Church. The family is very thankful for LCC donors who willingly gave to assist with the unexpected funeral costs, as they did not have the means to pay for these on their own.
They shared many stories about their wife and mother, as well as tears, shock, and concerns for their family moving forward. All have a strong faith that God and their church families will surround them with care and carry them through this difficult time.
LCC is grateful for your donations that have come in so far. Please prayerfully consider continuing to donate to help LCC recover the urgent funeral expense assistance provided to this grieving family in need.
