LCC received the following update from Pastor Doug Warmann of Trinity Lutheran Church in Roselle, Illinois:
Dear Christian friends:
Thank you for your generous support for the grieving family of five children and their mother expecting her sixth child in the next few weeks! Although it is a challenging task caring for so many children when you are pregnant, the mother has done an excellent job providing for them and training them to care for one another.
After being away from work for several months for a work injury, the mother returned to work at UPS in January. The last month has been especially difficult as the mother as well as her oldest son, were briefly in the hospital to receive tests and follow-up care. It continues to be a struggle to find an affordable caregiver for so many children. She is also looking for a new home as their current home is quite small for six children.
Your prayers and financial support have helped the family to survive during the last nine months. Thank you for your kindness! Please pray for a safe delivery, a healthy child, wisdom in adjusting to the changes that another child brings, and an affordable childcare provider.
As the Lord leads, we invite your support for them.
Pastor Doug Warmann,
Trinity Lutheran Church, Roselle, Illinois
