Lending a hand to ministry
The Luke Society does not send out medical brigades or work project teams, but volunteers are regularly needed in the Sioux Falls, S.D., office.
An important part of our ministry team are the men and women who generously donate their time to assist us during high-volume mailing campaigns. Mailings are a vital piece of the Luke Society ministry. They help us convey news, financial needs and prayer notices to our supporters.
Volunteers are utilized two mornings about every-other month to package letters and envelopes for the mail. Besides providing an important service, the mailings bring together volunteers and staff for a time of fellowship and camaraderie.
If you live in the Sioux Falls region and are interested in serving as a volunteer, contact Deb Den Herder at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-605-373-9686.
The ladies and I who volunteer for the Luke Society really enjoy our time helping out. It’s never hard to get a car full of ladies to go. We enjoy meeting others who work there and have become friends with many of them. We are usually given an update on what is happening in other countries where they need medical help and someone to bring God's word to them. It feels great to know that the little we do is so appreciated and that someone in another country will receive a great blessing from those who respond to the letters.

I see the Luke Society motto "Touching Lives in Jesus' Name" being fulfilled in the ministries that the Society supports. The importance of and need for the work of medical missionaries around the world is evident in the newsletters, personal letters requesting financial gifts, and other literature that volunteers help prepare for mailing. I appreciate being a part of it. Becoming acquainted with directors and staff members adds a personal touch. I have helped with mailings for more than ten years and have built up a sense of camaraderie with other volunteers. There is always lots of laughter and story-telling. It's a great way to spend a morning five or six times a year..
