Our ministry empowers nationals to share the saving grace of the Gospel through preaching, teaching and healing. Read more about who we are and what we do here.
To participate in God's plan of redemption by following Jesus' example of teaching, preaching, and healing (Matthew 9:35-36). Read our Faith Statements.
One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God. When morning came, he called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom he also designated apostles (Luke 6: 12-13).
These two verses from Luke's gospel are so revealing about Jesus and His ministry.
Jesus went up on the mountain and spent the entire night in prayer with His Father.
Can you visualize this scene? Can you see Jesus praying all night? What do you see happening as He is praying? Do you think He lost his voice during this night from so many hours of talking? Of course not. Jesus knew something about prayer that we have a hard time learning. Jesus has spent all this time listening to His Father.
There were hundreds of disciples who had been following Him, learning the truths of life in His kingdom and responding to the teaching.

Lugansk, Ukraine, operating budget
The Luke Society’s mission is clear: to empower Christian health professionals to bring physical and spiritual healing to their own people. But in individual cases, how that “pans out” is often different than what we had expected. Our partnership in Eastern Ukraine is a good example.
In 2013 when Dr. Greg Kuiper and Regional Coordinator Dr. Pal Oroszi first met Dr. Alexander Shevchenko and his team in Lugansk, Ukraine, they were quickly convinced God was leading us to partnership. Shevchenko exhibited the faith, vision and skills to be a great Luke Society partner. But we didn’t know that shortly after beginning our support, the country of Ukraine would be thrown into turmoil. We could not have anticipated that Lugansk would be in the middle of a war zone in less than a year.
