K9 Comfort Dog 

 

Rhoda would like to once again thank our congregation for bringing her to us. She is happy, healthy  two year old and has been with us for one year.

We can be thankful for a wonderful and dedicated Team that has helped us expand Rhoda's visitations over the last year. God has truly been with us. Rhoda is currently going to Community Memorial four times weekly, Luther Manor, Riverview, Cedar Creek, the Arboretum, Silverado, Dickson Hollow, shut-in visits and many special presentations. We continue our goal to bring Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus to all who need comfort.

Community Menorial Hospital has been very receptive of Rhoda. In fact, the other hospitals in the area area a bit jealous and have approached us to bring Rhoda there. While we do not have the time to serve the main Froedtert system as requested, we are trying to find a few hours weekly to serve St. Joes in West Bend. that will begin this fall 

We could use additional handlers to help with the additional requests. If anyone is interested please contact Peggy. Requirements include a three day training session in Illinois and availability of 1/2 day per week - including your own transportation. You will love it! Anyone is welcome to accompany a handler and see if this is a calling for you.

The entire Team just returned from the annual two-day Comfort Dog Convention in Illinois. 82 dogs and their handlers attended- quite the crowd. We heard from several powerful speakers- especially on a couple of the newer ministries such as Suicide Prevention and the Police MInistry. Every year Lutheran Church Charities finds ways to expand this ministry. If you get a chance, please speak to one of our team members.

Rhoda  enjoys attending the  worship services and is greeted by many members, especially the children. Check out her facebook page at www.facebook.com/rhodacomfortdog  to see who she's visited.
