Reflections from Nairobi PMT

Dr. Jim Spindler was looking for an opportunity to serve the Luke Society. As it turned out, the Lord didn't need him as an individual but as a team member in a group of strangers the Lord himself was bringing together. For 10 years he was served on a partnership ministry team in Nairobi, Kenya, which allowed him to build lifelong friendships.

Benin lab equipment

Dear Luke Society friends,

The best way to help a Luke Society ministry can be more complicated than it seems at first glance.

Our ministry partner in Benin, Africa, Dr. Martin Luther Osse, identified a need for laboratory equipment. The need was easy to recognize. In the month of December, he reported that about half of the 319 patients seen did not get the laboratory tests that were requested by the attending physician.

I’ve often had donors question how we make decisions when deciding how to help our ministry partners. What factors do we take into account when trying to pursue proper stewardship of funds? Sometimes it seems there should be a more cost-effective way to help our partners. Continue reading...
