The Luke Commission supporters in North America happily greet the VanderWal family every year when they return stateside with stories and appearances which thrill both the messengers and the recipients.
These annual special events currently take place in Idaho, the US headquarters for TLC, Oklahoma, and Ohio.
The VanderWals also speak in churches, community organizations, and universities, not to mention on radio and television programs, in Ontario, New York, Ohio, Idaho, Illinois, Colorado, Washington, North Carolina, and California. They have appeared before Congressional committees in Washington, D.C.
It’s all part of letting supporters know what’s happening in Swaziland, what God is doing through The Luke Commission.
