Let's Blow Out the 1st Candle; Maximize the Miracle

It’s our anniversary, Feb 28th.  One year and going strong.  Thank you, Jesus.

The Luke Commission purchased 30 acres in southwestern Swaziland.  The “deal” closed a year ago today.  God’s deal, our faithful supporters’ deal, your deal if you choose to become involved.

Long before directors Harry and Echo VanderWal were led to the property, the future permanent location of The Luke Commission in Swaziland was called the Miracle Campus.  And, oh, what a miracle it was, is, and will be.

As we seek to Maximize the Miracle, we ask you to participate in the next phase – to lay foundations for donated  buildings. 

Why the need for buildings?  To house all the parts and pieces of an organization that treats an average of 700 rural patients at each mobile hospital outreach with one team of national and international staff,  with an eye to the future of expanding the number of teams in Swaziland and reaching into other African countries.

Our first Miracle Campus request of 2014 is $125,000 by day’s end of Feb. 28th.   We look forward to your responses.

We’re especially thankful today – to you and to all who pray and donate to The Luke Commission.  Let’s blow out the first birthday candle with expectation glorious of what it still to come.
