Have you ever noticed how much you can learn about complete strangers from the back of their vehicles?
I was in a parking lot not long ago and I for some reason I started to take special notice of the bumper stickers and window decals around me. It was stunning – and maybe a bit startling – the amount of information people willingly expound about themselves.
I learned names of proud parents’ children, which sports they play, who made the school honor roll and which instrument they played in the marching band.
I noted one vehicle whose owner was crazy about cats; another who had made a hole-in-one and ironically, two people claiming to be the world’s No. 1 grandpa (I’m not sure how the voting was done).
There were plenty of fishermen, a couple Mary-Kay consultants and one person who was still proudly drumming up support for Ross Perot’s 1992 presidential candidacy. I’m assuming that one’s stuck on there for good.

Lugansk, Ukraine, operating budget
The Luke Society’s mission is clear: to empower Christian health professionals to bring physical and spiritual healing to their own people. But in individual cases, how that “pans out” is often different than what we had expected. Our partnership in Eastern Ukraine is a good example.
In 2013 when Dr. Greg Kuiper and Regional Coordinator Dr. Pal Oroszi first met Dr. Alexander Shevchenko and his team in Lugansk, Ukraine, they were quickly convinced God was leading us to partnership. Shevchenko exhibited the faith, vision and skills to be a great Luke Society partner. But we didn’t know that shortly after beginning our support, the country of Ukraine would be thrown into turmoil. We could not have anticipated that Lugansk would be in the middle of a war zone in less than a year.
