Mission Outreach

Empowered by the Holy Spirit, Saint Luke embraces the command of Jesus Christ to make disciples of all nations. Through our gifts and prayers, we support the work of individual missionairies in more than 38 countries throughout the world. We also endeavor to actively seek out our neighbors who do not know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and share His love with them.

2008 Medical Mission Trip Reflections…

“We have been back for a few days and returned to our comfortable lives, but my thoughts continually go back to the people we served and witnessed to in Mexico. It is a sad thought that for many of the people we saw at the clinic this is the only medical help they will receive until the Mission Team returns next year since they have no money to pay for health care and there is no Medicare or Medicaid. The poverty and horrible living conditions such as 8 people living in a one room house with no running water were such a stark contrast to what we take for granted here in the United States, but the people were happy. The children played with what few toys they had and were thrilled to get a page torn from a coloring book and a few crayons or a balloon made by blowing up one of our latex gloves.  We have so much for which to be thankful and can learn a lesson from them to be content with what we have.

It was very inspiring to see the great number of children at the service we attended at Santisima Trinidad Lutheran Church in Juarez, and they sang with great enthusiasm. Pastor Hernandez remarked that when this mission church opened some years back only a few women and their children would attend, but he was very excited that now a number of men were also attending.”  ~ Ray Mueller
