About the Luke Society

The Luke Society provides resources and support for international Christian health visionaries passionate about ministering to needs in their own cultures. 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.

 

Vision:

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.

The following is and example of how The Right Way is reaching out to individuals struggling with the forces of evil and additions.

As this example shows, it can even impact couples.

Roman, 27, was into stealing and drugs. Irina, 26, was into men and alcohol. Both are recovering now. Here is their story as told by Irina:


We met each other by chance, but we felt like a spark ran between us so we started to live together.

One day, Roman proposed that I try drugs, too. Soon I was addicted to drugs as was my husband. Despite that, we were able to give birth to a daughter.

Our needs increased. We had to take care of our baby. Roman began to steal more.

Latin America Relief Fund

Blessed is the one who has concern for helpless people. The Lord will rescue him in times of trouble." — Psalm 41:1

In March of this year, devastating storms hit the west coast of Peru, causing massive flooding. In the coastal region north of Lima 700,000 were left homeless and 94 people were killed. As we have seen wherever the Luke Society has been called to serve, the poor live in inadequate homes, suffer from inferior infrastructure and have a decreased ability to respond to natural disasters. Homes are of simple construction and vulnerable to the elements. In addition to the immediate physical impact of the storms, local resources are unable to respond to emergencies we see in developed countries.

The Luke Society isn’t a relief agency, and we don’t typically direct our efforts to specific tragedies. But when a disaster like this occurs where we have a ministry partnership, we are uniquely positioned to provide an effective and efficient response. Our Christian compassion compels us to act in these situations.
