There are times when words need to be accompanied by real, practical love. Jesus showed us love in the most practical way one can imagine, by giving His own life. During mission trips throughout the years, members of St. Luke’s love the people of Honduras and Latvia with a selfless, Christlike love. Teams of servants change lives by spending time in God’s Word and putting love into practice. St. Luke;s has been deliberate in forging two international partners in spreading the gospel on La Paz, Honduras and Sloka, Latvia.
