Pronounced Lew-Khet, derived from the Latin word LuKet, meaning To shine.
"For god shines his light into the darkness." john 1:5
The Luket missionary team pours their individual talents into non-profit and humanitarian aid organizations around the world. Currently, Luket shines in the Pearl of Africa, Jinja, Uganda. Weekly they serve at orphanages, parasite and malnourishment clinics and strive to meet village needs that come in various forms. Maximizing their unique skill set and experience of the team, they empower the community by providing business mentorship, teaching hygiene, art and homeschooling classes, while providing cosmetology services and medical assistance.
Luket has a heart for the orphan, extensive knowledge of foster care and firsthand adoption experiences. They draw from personal passion and adoption education to aid in orphan care and thoughtfully serve adoptive families. Missionaries serving with Luket are chosen for their commitment to God's Kingdom and history of integrity. Luket's unified desire is to minister as God's hands and feet and carry the name of Jesus into the land God has graciously given them to serve.
Luket's mission work is made possible by tax-deductible financial donations from people with a similar heart for serving in medical clinics, reaching the fatherless and providing for those with critical needs. Luket missionaries are incredibly grateful for your prayers and support as they continue this great work in Uganda. The supporter is the bow, Luket is the arrow and God's people in Uganda are the target!
“Now that I have seen.”
Luket Ministries tagline was planted in our hearts in 2006 with the journey to adopt our first daughter in Vietnam. As we pulled up to a third world orphanage, it was as if God peeled back a cloudy layer of our eyes and we could truly see for the first time. From that time forth we were beautifully wrecked for missions, orphan care and serving internationally. God Luket His Light on us and we are ever so grateful. Seeing changes everything.
Luket logo created by artist Evie Shaffer.
Evie is passionate about creating beauty with a purpose, always pointing to the Beauty-giver in the process. To make her circle vignettes she goes on nature hikes to collect natural treasures- everything from seeds, feathers and flowers, to sticks, plants, leaves and shells. She then arranges them into a circle vignette. For this piece, she spent ten days serving with Luket in Uganda. This circle vignette perfectly reflects the beauty of Jinja, Uganda and we are honored for it to be the symbol of Luket. www.evie-s.com
