2010 International Conference in Sioux Falls.

The Luke Society’s fifth International Conference was held in Sioux Falls on the weekend of June 18-20. Luke Society directors from 27 ministries around the world came to Sioux Falls to meet together and to share with supporters from all over the USA what God is doing through their ministries.
The International Conference was preceded by a week-long Director’s Conference. During this week several topics such as “Prioritizing the Ministry” and “Maintaining the Vision” were presented by Luke Society staff and regional coordinators. Some directors were selected to sit on a panel to discuss specific issues that are common to all the ministries. They were able to learn from one another and share ideas.
For Luke Society supporters who attended, it was an opportunity to meet the directors face to face. Each director shared about his ministry in a workshop setting where attendees could learn in detail about the ministry and ask questions. Each ministry also had a display table where attendees could visit and learn more about their ministries.

We organized special seminar-training together with our Moscow colleagues from “Vstan!” foundation (Nina Belakova and Loginiva Natalia). As a result, there was creation of the new psycho-therapy anonymous group, which took 12-steps Christian model as basis.
The main topic of the seminar- learning of all aspects of the reason of addiction problem: physiological, psychological, social, spiritual. And the way of treatment and rehabilitation for people with that illness.
The unicity of this seminar and proposed solution of the problem was in combination of the scientific way (complex of systematic methods: 12-steps system) and spiritual view (Biblical way) in patient’s treatment.
There were present different people from Rivne: psychologists, medical doctors,
students, businessmen, addicted people, co-addicted, school teachers.
Most of them never hear about 12-steps model for own healing, solution of lot of
different problems, changing of itself and personal spiritual growth.
Many of them never have a problems with alcogol or drugs.
But after seminar most of them realized that they need this healing too.
Now we can say that seminar was really blessed. We used there Christian way for healing in 12-steps model. People liked just that way very much!
So it was really nice possibility for evangelisation.
