Lutheran Church Charities has a wonderful ministry…the Comfort Dogs.
These specially trained golden retrievers are deployed to locations around the country where they provide relief and comfort to people who have been affected by tragedy, as well as those in nursing homes and hospitals. You may have seen the dogs in the news most recently following the Boston marathon bombings.
This ministry was founded in 2008 shortly after the shootings on the campus of Northern Illinois University.
Each of the dogs has a Facebook page where you can follow them!
The dogs will be traveling to Moore, OK at the invitation of Messiah Lutheran Church. Please pray for the dogs and their handlers, and of course the people in Moore and the surrounding areas who have been impacted by the storms.
