Sometimes lost among the excellent work of our international ministry directors is some essential, behind-the-scenes grunt work done by a group of special people.

Many elements must come together for an organization like the Luke Society to be able to spread the Gospel and holistic health across the globe. All of that, of course, begins with the Lord’s will and the moving of the Holy Spirit in the heart of a director.

In a more tangible way, each one of our donors plays a significant role in making that possible through their generosity and financial gifts.

That’s where that grunt work comes into play.

For us to get that message into the hearts and minds of donors, the message has to get out from the four concrete walls of our building in Sioux Falls, S.D. One of the main methods we use to accomplish this is mailings.

No doubt most of you receive our capital fundraising letters through the mail. They are usually accompanied by a bookmark of prayer concerns and causes for praise, as well as a return donation card and envelope. We also use the Luke Society News magazine to share encouragement of what God is doing through the Luke Society.

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. Continue reading...
