This month we would like to shift prayer focus toward another important part of the Luke Society’s ministry and mission — the generous donors. The Luke Society has been 100-percent funded by donations since it was founded in 1964. This work of health care, health education and evangelism would not be possible without generous donors.

The Luke Society has always stewarded each donated dollar. One way this is done is by intentionally keeping the staff size small (currently there are six of us working in the U.S.), and utilizing volunteer Partnership Ministry Teams (PMTs) as well as local volunteer groups. This means that almost all donations are invested directly toward the growth of the Luke Society’s 44 international ministries in 33 countries.
