Your Donations Make A Difference Throughout 2021 and Are a Shining Light During Darkness to Those in Need
All year long, whatever need we put in front of you to help others, your donation went to those it was intended to help. It is truly pass-through, dollar-per-dollar, for what you, the donor, intended. NOTHING is taken out for our administrative costs.
You are on the front lines with us making a difference in the lives of those suffering and in need!
Thank you for your continued generous support of all of the LCC Ministries in 2021!

FAMILIES IN NEED
BECAUSE OF YOUR DONATIONS LCC WAS ABLE TO HELP THESE FAMILIES IN NEED:
Your Donations Help Illinois National Guardsman Provide for His Family Who Escaped from Afghanistan
LCC was able to send your donations to Illinois National Guardsman Lt. Fahim Masoud to help him as he provides for his family who escaped from Afghanistan.
Your support has been a tremendous blessing to Fahim and his family as they adjust to their new life in the United States.
Your Donations Help Holy Cross Lutheran Church in North Miami, Florida, Assist Two Families in Need
One gift went to help a mother and her two children who were living in a shelter for the abused, and have now been relocated to a safer place where she and her children will experience a new beginning.
We also helped a second family whose firstborn daughter is 6 months old, has a very rare and incurable disease in which tumors grow rapidly, and she is experiencing seizures. The insurance company refuses to pay for the medication needed. We were able to pay for her medication which is costing more than $800 a month. Her parents work for the Humane Society and love the comfort dogs.
Thank you again for being the hands, eyes and feet of Jesus touching so many lives.

Your Donations Help St. Peter, Schaumburg, Illinois, Assist Two Families in Need
LCC staff members Nikki Deacon and Dianna Bonfield delivered your donations to Pastor Greg Hintz of St. Peter, Schaumburg, Illinois.
Your donations support the Hintz family adoption fund and provide housing assistance for a family of five after their father’s battle with COVID-19 and lung transplant.
The families are incredibly grateful for the support that they have received.
Your Donations Help Salam Christian Fellowship, Lombard, Illinois, Minister to Refugees in Need
Pastor Hesham Shehab of Salam Christian Fellowship in Lombard, Illinois, is grateful for your generous support of his ministry to the refugees.
Your donations provided the financial support needed to help a disabled woman with rent and car repairs for an Afghan refugee. Both needs have been met!
Your generous donations also help Salam assist the refugees in providing the medications they need and purchasing bilingual Bibles for the ministry to use as they share Jesus with new refugees.
BECAUSE OF YOUR DONATIONS LCC WAS ABLE TO PROVIDE FOOD FOR SCHOOL CHILDREN AND THE MOST VULNERABLE IN HAITI
Your Donations Help Provide Food for Students During Christmas Break
I want you to know how happy the kids and parents were on receiving the food kits. It was a special Christmas gift for them. They told me this year they didn’t expect anything because there is trouble not only in Haiti but it’s everywhere in the world. But when I told them I could feed the kids and they said "yes," God hears our prayers. You can imagine what impact each kit makes in each family who receives it.
Please never stop thanking our sponsors and donors for us. And thanks to all of the members of LCC. In the name of the students, their parents and especially in my family name, I wish you a Merry Christmas with Jesus Christ.
Thanks again for continuing to make a difference for my people with your love, generosity, compassion.
We love you so much guys and wish you a Happy New Year 2022 with God.
