This past weekend the Luke Society Board of Directors met in Sioux Falls, SD, at the Luke Society headquarters.
As always, the interaction with the board was a tremendous encouragement to me and the rest of the staff. The Luke Society staff presented reports on the finances, new and existing ministry partnerships and on our donor communications. We also spent time in devotions and prayer.
The Lord has blessed us in so many ways, and it was a joy to share all of this with the board.
We took an evening to recognize Rod Ledeboer’s contribution to the Luke Society as business administrator for over 18 years. He will retire this summer and his contribution and presence will be missed.
As I looked around the board room, I was again impressed that these men and woman would give up precious time, travel at their own expense and contribute their efforts and talents to empower this organization.

New ministry development
Most of us have never met someone who openly states they are willing to die for their commitment to Jesus Christ.
Recently, I was at a conference with Christian health professionals who are willing to do that in one of the most difficult areas of the world — the Middle East, Turkey and North Africa.
Nearly 400 of these dedicated Christians met in the Sahara Desert in an undisclosed location (for security reasons) to mentor and encourage one another on how to bring light to this spiritually dark region of the world. They shared strategies on how to share the Gospel in the workplace within Muslim cultures that are intolerant to Christianity. Several attendees expressed guilt for not yet being ready to give up their life or career for Christ, but came to the conference seeking tools and assurance to attain that level of commitment.
