Maggie's Comfort Corner
Newtown Comfort was blessed to have the opportunity to serve the greater Houston area after Hurricane Harvey’s devastation. It was God’s plan that everything would fall into place. Within just a few hours of receiving the Wednesday, August 30th invitation for LCC Comfort Dogs to serve, we had travel arrangements for handler Lori Flandreau and Maggie to arrive at the Dallas/Fort Worth airport on Friday, September 1st, to begin serving the next day, and for Pastor Rob and Ken Fay (from Washington state) to fly to San Antonio on Sunday to join them. (The Houston airport was still closed.) Maggie and her handlers joined about a dozen other LCC Comfort Dog teams for a week of ministry to storm
ravaged areas, providing those affected with moments of comfort and prayer. Having a three person / one dog team also allowed Newtown Comfort to provide some physical labor to those in need. Our congregation’s generous special offering (thank you!), along with funds raised from GoFundMe.com, and other donations provided us the means to cover the travel costs.
You can read about our trip to Houston in two articles in the September 29th edition of the Newtown Bee, found on page B-NINE.
After returning home from Texas on Saturday, September 9th, Maggie had one day of rest, and then was eager to get back to her normal schedule of visits to schools, hospitals, adult daycare, rehabilitation centers and a living facility for homeless.
But wait; there’s more. Maggie also had some special weekend visits in September. Maggie and handlers attended by invitation:
