Christ Lutheran Correspondence & Thank You's

May 17, 2016
Thank you to Christ Schools' Parent Council for hosting a celebration of my 25th Anniversary in the teaching ministry this past Sunday. I also want to extend thanks to the people of Christ Lutheran Church for the congratulatory words, the encouraging notes, and the thoughtful gifts to me. I love my job, and am blessed to have been called to work alongside God's people here at Christ.  Your kind and generous thoughtfulness is truly appreciated.                

 Your Sister in Christ,  Laura Asplin

On behalf of Linda's family we would like to thank everyone for welcoming us to Christ Lutheran Church for her memorial service on Saturday, January 16th. Special thanks to Pastors Luke and Jeff  and all the little children who sang with all their hearts. What a blessing! A big thank you to Jadyn, Tessa and Doni for sharing their stories of Linda. And to the lunch ladies for the good lunch they served and the pretty paper flowers the children made for each table. We were so grateful.

We want to thank all of the people at Christ who worked behind the scenes to make everything go smoothly for Steve’s funeral. It was so much appreciated. We were overwhelmed at the outpouring of sympathy and memorials.

Your expression of sympathy could not be more fully realized than in the service you provide in the wonderful luncheons given to our church members. It is such a relief to know that our funeral guests will be well taken care of and this without any work or worry on my part. What a blessing you are.  Never forget that you are doing the Lord’s Work, and are so very much appreciated.

Thank you to all who braved the winter weather on Saturday night (Jan. 31) to come enjoy some wonderful soup, dessert, music and fellowship with CLC members and guests. Thanks also to the many volunteers who helped set up, cook, serve and clean up and also those who shared their musical talents with us. Your efforts blessed so many in attendance and so helped bless the Haitian children, and the CLC youth groups.

The results from the Chili Cook-off are as follows:
First Place, Team KleinBock, Taco Chili, team captain Curtis Klein
Second Place, Red Hot Chili Cookers, Divine Chili, team captain Curt Jones
Third Place, Team Wolfe, Mom's Chili, Team captain Mark Wolfe

Note from Judith Kohl, counselor at Place of Grace
It is with sadness that I am forced to close my counseling practice—Place of Grace—and discontinue my ministry as a counselor on campus at Christ Lutheran Church. This summer I was diagnosed with a Vascularitis—auto immune disease, Microscopic Polyangiitis. As with most auto-immune diseases, MPA is chronic—there is no cure and treatment can be aggressive—but remission is an option for about 85% of the people who have it. God willing—that is what I am working toward. God often closes one door and opens another and it is my hope He will do that in my case and will continue to use me and my degree to glorify Him.

Working at Christ Lutheran Church has been an amazing experience and I would like to thank the people and staff at Christ for allowing me that privilege. To those who allowed me to "companion” them over the last eight years as they have worked through their challenges and struggles in this life—it has been a pleasure to serve as your "exquisite witness” during those times and I honor you for having the strength and courage to seek help when you needed it. Good therapy is when the caregiver and the care receiver bless each other—I hope that has been the case for you as it has for me. Joan Chittister, a Benedictine nun describes what I feel about my work best. "Pain is that dimension of human life that calls us both to give and to be able to receive the sometimes awkward, often incomplete but always healing care that those who simply sit with those who hurt, forever bring…To go down into pain with another person breaks open the heart of the God who looks among us always for the face most like God’s own.” We should do this for each other as brothers and sisters in Christ! Thank you for your prayers and keep them coming—they are appreciated. If you have questions or need to contact me feel free—(402) 429-2654.

Friends of Christ Lutheran,

Special thank you to everyone who helped get these gift cards into the hands of our families. You all are truly a blessing to them.

God's richest blessing to you and your family,

Thank you so very much for the delicious lunch you brought out to the house. It most certainly gave Famous Dave's a run for its money! The gift card will buy much needed clothes and household supplies. The ham steaks were such a treat as well!

Please extend our thanks to all individuals responsible. The generosity and support from the staff and congregation at CLC has meant so much to our family during this difficult time in our lives. The compassion of friends, as well as strangers, is just over-whelming! And with every blessing, my heart heals a little more.

Thank you for reaching out to us in prayer and in so many other ways. This is surely God's work in action and may He richly bless each and everyone of you!

I wanted to express my thanks and appreciation for your support of my trip to Belize. I am thankful for my time there and a chance to build relationships with the people of Belize united in the foundation of Christ. It was amazing to see the Holy Spirit at work during our trip.

To God all the glory!

A big thanks to Austin Carstens for building the brick flower box in front of the South Sanctuary.

Austin built the flower box as his Eagle Scout project and coordinated the purchase of the materials, the volunteers and the planting.

Great job Austin!

Thank you so very much for your kindness in giving the gift cards to Walmart and Super Saver! Those of us who suffered from the tornadoes will put them to very good use! Your thoughtfulness is very much appreciated!

In Christ's love,

Many thanks for your prayers and the gift cards you sent for our recent tornado victims. Everyone in our small community grouped together to help one another.

We discovered that God sends blessings from people like you farther away to give support where it is needed. To you, our brothers and sisters in Christ, we send our appreciation.

Blessings to you,
Carol Larsen, member of St. John's Lutheran Church, Cordova, NE
