A Message from Mercy
January sure has flown by quickly. I like to play in the snow, if you didn’t know. Not a lot of opportunity for that.
I am very happy to be a part of the ministry outreach here at OSL. It is a privilege to go out and serve others, representing Our Savior Lutheran Church and School. Thank you for giving me that opportunity!
It’s been a blessing to continue my greeting at church during this pandemic. Thanks to those of you who stop by. Hand sanitizer is a blessing. I’m also grateful to be able to visit some of my Our Savior friends who are home bound at this time. I’m hoping soon that my outreach ministry will open up again, and I can once again visit hospitals and nursing homes.
If you’d care to follow what I am doing and view my pictures, you can see me and “like” me on my own Facebook page. www.facebook.com/MercyComfortDog I currently have over 3,500 “likes” on my page. Have you liked me yet? Share me with your Facebook friends. All they have to do is click “like” on my page. I also have an Instgram account! My Instagram handle is lcck9mercy. Look me up and follow me there, too. Facebook tends to be my primary means of social media at this time, though.
Did you know that my ministry is not funded by the general fund of Our Savior? I am funded totally by the generosity of folks like you and by fund raising that my team does on my behalf. If you’d like to donate toward my expenses, I am very appreciative and will give you a big hug. I love going to Feeder’s Supply, so a gift card from there is always great. Since our ministry is not funded through the OSLC general fund, we appreciate all monetary donations as well.
A new way that you can also help out my ministry is by saving your aluminum cans and recycling them here at church. Drop them off in the trailer parked near the dumpster behind the school. All proceeds go to our Comfort Dog ministry. Thank you!
If you or your family has a need for comfort, please contact my “top dog,” Doug Netherton to arrange a visit. We’d be happy to arrange a visit.
My verse is Exodus 34:6, "And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, 'The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.'"
In HIS Love,
Mercy Comfort Dog
