You are uniquely made, Amira! Her parents fled their home in terror , because their lives had been threatened! The horrors and trauma little Amira had been through were unspeakable. Singing to hear and praying for her brought tears to my eyes. There are millions across the world who want to be loved and respected. They want a Hope that only God can give. Let's go into our communities and world communities to be the hands and feet of Jesus!

  • One life you impacted ...

    Posted a week ago

    Story after story are coming from our National Partners as they serve and minister to others in spite of and because of COVID-19. This is just one that brought me to tears Friday! It reminded me of something a team member said last year:

    Our lives are forever interwoven. "God is writing a book for each of us. Other people have the same chapter as we do because our lives are connected, our stories are forever intertwined. These are eternal stories that will remain forever."

    The lives of those e3 Medical touches are forever a part of the book being written about your life. One recent way your donations were able to make a huge impact!

    At ten years old a Afghan girl was forced to marry a much older man. She had her first child at 11 years old. The man was abusive. Many painful years later about the beginning of 2020, they escaped their country due to political violence. They slipped into Greece seeking refuge.

    Summer 2020: our Refugee Partners met the woman, now 20 as she was walking aimlessly on the street outside the large refugee camp. She was obviously distraught. They asked if she needed help. Her husband was allowing others to abuse her in the camp. Our Partner was able to connect her with a group that supports women in these abusive situations.

    She has become open to listening as our Partners share the Gospel. They have provided her with food, clothing, medicine and a means of protection from abuse. Someone gave her a cross pendant. She found a chain to put it around her neck. She said it brings her closer to Jesus.

    Your prayers and support make a difference! I can't wait to see how God is using you and those you serve.

    This is not her picture, in order to protect her identity, but she looks very similar to this. You are now part of the book God is writing for her! Pray she comes to know just how much God loves her! Thank you!

  • Dispelling the dark . . .

    Posted a week ago

    Even during a pandemic, our "Light" can shine for Jesus! Thank you for being that light and helping to keep that light spreading throughout the world with your donations and prayers! Hundreds of families have received food supply kits, medicine refills along with much needed prayer and the Gospel! Our national partners and their families have continued ministry with our support and encouragement from here!

    Thank you!


    As a child in north central Nigeria, I have vivid memories of going to the Night Market in our small town of Keffi. There was no electricity, only small twinkling lights at each vendor’s small table. Some vendors had lanterns, others used homemade small lanterns from Peak Evaporated Milk cans pictured here.

    It is only a little over 2 inches tall. We put kerosene in it along with a wick, lit it with a stick from an ever-burning fire and there was light! Not a lot of light but enough to “turn off the dark".

    It has a crudely made handle and wick holder, but it did its job: shining light to dispel the darkness! Those little twinkling lights broke through what seemed like total darkness in the market.

    This little lantern has been mine since the late 1950s …yep! It has been sitting in a cabinet for many years. I pulled it out a few weeks ago as a reminder that while some may believe we are in the darkest times, our job is not to complain about the darkness.

    Our job is to be a little twinkling light to dispel the darkness. Jesus made it very clear: Be a light guiding people to Him!

  • God's Word goes forth in the midst of chaos!

    Posted a week ago

    As our US-based leaders daily work with our in-country national leaders, we have learned bitter sweet stories of how these leaders, pastor and lay leaders are caring for their communities and church families during shelter-at-home.

    They are so thankful for the financial assistance you have given to help them provide food to the starving and medicine for hypertension and diabetes. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being a part of meeting these critical needs. As our national leaders give the food and medicine, they are praying and sharing the Gospel. In cases where they are able, they are providing Bibles. One pastor in eastern part of the world has said he needs 20,000 - 50,000 Bibles to distribute with food. God's Word goes forth in the midst of chaos!

    In so many countries, persecution is becoming even more harsh as authorities apparently are taking the opportunity to use COVID-19 as a reason to clamp down on Christ followers.

    In several situations, non-Believers are coming to pastors and lay leaders for assistance with food and medicine. They are they reporting to authorities that the pastor prayed for them. Pastors and lay leaders are being arrested.

    Please pray for Christian leaders to remain strong in their faith, for them to have the resources they need to feed the hungry and provide medications to those in need.

    Please pray for my team and our e3 ministry as we get more creative in how to partner with our national leaders to minister to their communities and to share the Gospel.

    May we all get a glimpse of how God is using this pandemic for His glory and His honor!!

  • God opens the doors for a new way of ministry!

    Posted a week ago

    We will not soon forget our "stay-at-home" COVID-19 days! 

    It has been exciting to engage with our e3 Team as we look for creative, outta the box, ideas for new ways to minister. 

    Please pray as e3 Medical launches our "Virtual e3 Medical Teams" which are a means by which we enable our National Partners in the different countries to continue ministry by providing for people spiritually through technology and/or 6 feet apart, as well as providing food, medicine and other basic necessities!

    Please pray for our Teams as we continue working night and day through multiple time-zones to encourage our National Partners!

    Thank you for your continued encouragement and support! These are crazy and long days, but God has amazing things in store for us!

  • Surreal and bizarre times . . .

    Posted a week ago

    "Surreal and bizarre times" is a phrase I hear often these days. In our wildest dreams, did we anticipate the effects of this virus pandemic on our country and our world.

    "But God," is fast becoming a favorite phrase! We are so thankful that God is in control. His plans for using these surreal and bizarre times for His honor and glory are going to be amazing! I can't wait each day to see what He has planned! 

    It has been so encouraging to receive notes from friends around the world with whom I have served who are praying for my family, friends and our country. I love how the body of Christ comes together!

    I pray you and your family are well! I also pray your family will have the most amazing Easter as you remember it is all about Jesus!

    Thank you!   Anne

  • Focus 2020 ...

    Posted a week ago

    Over the past few years, I've had one word for the year that I study, find scriptures that include that word or a synonym that apply and attempt to follow God's lead for those verses.
    Late December 31, 2019, the word "Focus" came to mind. Every time I turned around January 1, 2020 the word "Focus" "popped up" ...from the Bible, Facebook :), even CNN and Fox News!! hmmmm...

    • Isaiah 26:3 – You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed (also means focus) on You, because he trusts in You. (The You meaning, God)
    • Psalm 119:2 – Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart. (stay focused)!

    Your many prayers, words of encouragement and your financial assistance over these 11 years have truly kept me going and focused on what I believe God is still calling me to do... medical missions by which we minister to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of others. And we share the Gospel, make disciples and teach others to do the same! Each of you are truly a blessing for being a part ...serving right along with me, in person or in spirit! Thank you!!

    Since David is doing so well three week out from knee replacement, he has "dismissed" me as his nurse/PT to go with my team to Greece working with refugees. I leave January 3rd. So many sweet friends have donated warm gloves, socks, caps, scarves to take ...it is snowing in Greece!!  Please pray as we serve these precious people from war and politically torn countries who are so very cold with few necessities ...and most have no hope ...we know Who that Hope is!! Pray for us to be bold in sharing!

    May God bless you as you focus on what HE has in store for you in this new decade of 2020!!

  • Pressing on ... eyes on the goal: every person, every place, engaged with the Gospel

    Posted a week ago

    e3 Giving Day was humbling, such an encouragement and blessing! I loved getting the texts and emails. Your generosity is greatly appreciated from the bottom of my heart!

    This verse came to mind today: Ephesians 3 20-21: Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,  to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

    Moving forward . . . 
    Every single person in
    Every single place
    Engaged with the Gospel

    Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message)

    I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.

  • Glimmer of Hope

    Posted a week ago

    Good morning, prayer warriors and supporters!

    Your prayers, encouragement and financial support are greatly appreciated and truly needed!
    Please continue to pray for wisdom and discernment, boldness in sharing the Gospel. I would also appreciate your prayers for more financial assistance to support me in the work I believe God still wants me to be engaged...those funds are dwindling.

    May 4th I leave for the Czech Republic for a strategy workshop with our strategy leaders from across Europe. These are exciting and unprecedented times for all of us. Please pray as we prepare and anticipate what God has in store for us in the next 2-3 years. 

    From there I travel to Athens to finalize preparations for a large team coming May 18th to serve the refugees and Greeks. We will minister through health clinics, children's, women/men's ministry, park ministry and ministry within Greek and refugee-led churches. 

    The need is great! The opportunity is unprecedented with the influx of people from 40+ countries. Thank you for being a part!

    Across the coast on which this man and child are standing is Turkey, a primary route for most of the refugees entering Greece. This man and his child made it safely across with a glimmer of hope for a safer life.

    A "glimmer" is defined as a faint and wavering light. Those who left their countries are seeking safety and hope in Greece. Please pray we show Jesus as not only a glimmer of Hope but the only Hope.  Thank you!

  • Looking back at 2018

    Posted a week ago

    2018 has flown by! It has been such a privilege to serve on five continents this year . . . 7 mission trips. While I often forget the details of trips, the faces . . . the eyes and the the beauty of those we serve stay in my memory!  Thank you for being a part of this journey of serving through medical missions! Your prayers, encouragement and financial assistance have made it possible for me to be more engaged.

    This precious little one and his family were really struggling with having a safe place to live, food, clothing and medical attention. Our team was able to help with their physical, emotional and  ...they learned about Jesus! Thank you for being on the team!

  • Anticipating what God is going to do today!

    Posted a week ago

    With Christmas approaching, I have the best memories as a child and watching our children and grandchildren as they anticipate what Christmas Day will bring. Such fun memories!

    Imagine the great joy we would have if each day, we were to anticipate what God is going to do!

    On my last trip to Athens, our team had the honor to spend an evening in the small apartment of a precious Middle East family that I met in 2017. The men spent hours sharing about the one true God and His Son. Two of the women played with the children to keep them occupied and to show them love! I had the honor of helping the wife, "M", prepare dinner for the team. She and I communicated via Google Translate since she speaks no English and Anne speaks only a couple of Arabic words! "M" was so proud she had this little kitchen and that she could do something she loved, cooking, for our team. We have come to love this family and so want them to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. 

    Thank you for enabling me to be a part of that night through your prayers, encouragement and your financial support! This is one of so many stories ...ways in which God has shown up in a surprising, fun and heartwarming way! May HE continue to get all the honor and glory!

    You are a blessing to this family ... thank you!   ......Anne

  • Ten years ... precious people!

    Posted a week ago

    Ten years ago this month, a friend asked if I had totally and completely lost my mind for considering leaving the field of technology and going to work for a ministry, e3 Partners. The answer was and is: Yes! I am!! And I am thankful for these ten years of crazy!! <smile>

    I joined e3 in October of 2008 to work primarily with the medical team! In addition to the medical team, my work expanded over the years to include work with all of our short-term trips. It has been a whirlwind of a journey... in a good way! God continues to open doors for serving Him! As long as those doors are open, I'll continue!

    My deepest gratitude for your continued prayers, encouragement and financial support!

    Let's take God's Word and go out!
    God said: "... so My word that comes from My mouth will not return to Me empty, but it will accomplish what I please, and will prosper in what I send it to do."Isaiah 55:11

    September 13th is e3 Giving Day. Every donation made that day will be enhanced by a portion of a $100,000 bonus fund. On September 13, every dollar is worth more!

  • Standing in the Gap

    Posted a week ago


    Thank you for standing in the gap for so many people and situations throughout the years! It will be an unbelievable day when we get to heaven and see how your prayers were answered! Please don’t stop praying!

    2018 …standing in the need of prayer!

    • e3 Partners is going through a transition across the organization …that is a good thing! We are on a mighty fast pace to ensure e3 is prepared to escalate the work we do …Jesus is coming and people need to know Him!
    • My new role as Director of Strategy Resources is similar but with more responsibility. In addition, I continue to lead the Medical Strategy which continues to grow. It is humbling and causes me to be in prayer even more for Godly wisdom and the ability to focus on the most important places at the right time!
    Please pray for
    • Strategic wisdom (James 1:5), discernment, patience, ears and eyes opened to how God is directing me. (Col 1:9)
    • For those who will be serving with e3 this year …approximately 2000 people!
    • The thousands with whom we will share Jesus, the churches we will help start.
    Trips on the schedule that I will be leading/co-leading:
    • February 14th Athens to prepare for the June team. We will be meeting with pastors and ministry leaders to finalize preparations. I thought I was going by myself when David Lucas said he would go and assist! Yea!!
    • In April, Lee Lucas, David Smith and Pete Marian from our church on an e3 scouting trip to Mongolia. We will evaluate the prospects for bringing teams in over the next years.
    • In May, we are off to Zambia with lots of nursing students! We will be partnering with another ministry and churches outside of Lusaka.
    • In June, we have a large team going to Athens to serve refugees from over 40 countries. Recently, I read that there are over 60,000 refugees in Greece at this time...searching for hope! Ephesians 1:18

    Leading and serving with teams is my most favorite part! I learn so much from the team, those we serve and from God!

    There is a lot to do in my other role as e3 Director of Strategy Resources. HOWEVER, it is not about me. It is about God and His Plan – that is the priority!

    This picture was taken last night as University of Alabama nursing students prepare to serve in Zambia.

  • God's blessings . . . 2017 and 2018

    Posted a week ago

    2017 has been another year of God's blessings! Thank you for your prayers, encouragement and financial support! God gave me the honor of meeting, serving and serving with so many people who have impacted my life!

    I spent several weeks in Greece learning more about the refugee situation, working with teams to serve refugees ...and being loved and encouraged by refugees from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and so many others! We took close to 100 volunteers to serve in Greece. Our hearts and prayers are for those so far from home, not because they want to but because their lives depended on their leaving their homes. 

    A wonderful team served among the Digo people in Kenya where we ran into collapsed bridges, monsoon-like rains, almost ran out of gas in the backside of nowhere ...but God took care of us and even better, HE gave us incredible opportunities to share His love in this Muslim area. We made wonderful friends and had government officials invite us to return!

    2018 is on track for being another busy year with great opportunities to serve others while sharing God's love!

    Thank you for being a part of this work!! May God bless you and your family in the coming year with His joy!    .....Anne

    September 14th our team leaves to work among refugees and Greeks in Greece. We covet your prayers!

    See Psalm 67 --- a dear friend prayed this Psalm for us last night!

    Please join us in praying that soon the Name of Jesus will be shouted from the roof tops and every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of the Father! (Philippians 2)

    Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.” Acts 5:38-39

    Thank you for your financial donations and your continued prayers and encouragement! We know God has a plan for our work among the refugees and Greek people of Greece! Hundreds of refugees are pouring into Greece this week ...daily! They need to hear that God sees them and loves them!

    Please pray as our team leaves Thursday to serve among them.

    The world is struggling with all kinds of natural disasters and human-made disasters!  As an example: Up to half a million people were expected to be evacuated from their homes in south-eastern China on Tuesday (Sept 12) as the region braced itself for a "giant" typhoon that is expected to make landfall later in the week.  Please pray for opportunities to share the only Hope!!

    Your donations allows me to concentrate on the ministry! Thank you for your faithfulness!

Our next team will be serving in Greece leaving this weekend. We cherish your prayers as we go.

    Your faithful prayers, many notes of encouragement and financial support have made it possible for me to lead and serve with teams from across the USA and other countries. Thank you! I cherish your prayers and your friendship!

  • "Let me warm your hands. They are cold."

    Posted a week ago

    As I walked through the freezing cold tents, "homes" of refugees in Greece, a Muslim woman and I exchanged smiles. I held my hand out to shake hers. We smiled and kissed each others' cheeks. She then said something in her language that I soon understood was:
    "Let me warm your hands. They are cold."

    ​It was freezing and snowing. It seemed like I had 14 layers of clothes on but I still cold. My hands were so cold. This precious lady, thhttps://www.purecharity.com/annelucasfund/updatesen warmed my hands. I prayed she would feel the warmth of the presence of the Holy Spirit and come to know Jesus as her Lord and Savior!

    Thank you for giving me the opportunity to go and serve! It is an honor and a privilege.


     

    ​​I have tried to put into words what I saw, felt and learned on our mission to Greece to the refugees and the Greeks who are serving them. My heart is so full and breaking with what I heard and saw. It is rare that I am speechless, but I am. I hope this slide show will give you a glimpse into what we saw, heard and felt. May God give you a clear direction of how you can serve those who do not know Hi


    There is an unprecedented opportunity right now for us to share with those who do not know who Jesus is! We can not not go, pray, make disciples. They are wide open to hear the message!

    Ask me about adopting a people group!! YES!! Go with us to Greece in 2017 to serve among the refugees there. Just ask me! <smile>

    This email group is composed of mighty prayer warriors who have gotten my family and I thought a lot ...you've prayed, laughed and cried with us on this journey. I consider each one of you an individual blessing beyond all measure. The words "Thank you" never seem sufficient. My heart is so very thankful for your prayers, your encouragement, and your financial assistance.

    May you and your family be blessed beyond all measure with the Joy of the Lord as we end 2016 and start afresh in 2017!

  • e3 Giving Day! Many thanks!

    Posted a week ago

    Thank you for the many expressions of love and support today, e3 Giving Day. Each of you are a true blessing!

    Apologies for the e3 Giving Day technology "glitches that continue to pop up for some of you. Many have been able to give online today, but some continue to have issues. Our IT team is hard at work to get things running smoothly.

    Please email me if you still have problems. Many thanks for persevering.

    I pray that God fills you with the joy of His presence this evening!  .....Anne

  • On mission . . . impact!

    Posted a week ago

    Dear Prayer Warriors and Ministry Partners: Two months from today, I will be serving in a place with few followers of Christ. Their hearts are searching for answers and a hope for the future. In a prior trip to this country, one lady stated to a co-worker: "A light has come to my country today." She saw Jesus in this team member.

    The impact of your prayers, encouragement and support may only be known once we get to heaven. People are seeing Who Jesus is through you, your prayers and your support ---working together to tell others about Jesus as Lord!

    You have many choices of ministries and organizations with whom to support. For that reason, I am humbled by and grateful to those who God has called to support the work I do with e3 Partners.

    e3 Partners has designated Tuesday, September 20th as e3 Giving Day. If so led, you may contribute at: https://www.purecharity.com/annelucasfund  Your donation will be credited to my support account, along with a percentage of the bonus pool.

    Your prayers are precious gifts! Our team to the middle east is already seeing satan attempting to hinder this work. Thankfully, Jesus has overcome and we know it is Him who we serve! Thank you!

  • Blessed by you!

    Posted a week ago

    You are a blessing to me personally and to the people I serve. Your financial support has enabled me to assist team leaders in mobilizing and leading 145 mission trips just this summer to start and encourage churches, provide general health screenings, vitamins, antibiotics, wound care and reading glasses. Medical and non-medical professionals have traveled to five continents to serve and share God's love! Thank you for being a huge part of the blessing we were able to give!

    Our annual e3 Giving day is just around the corner, September 20th. If the Lord leads you to be involved through giving, it would be a huge blessing!  Thank you!

    Our mission to Ethiopia was beyond exciting and fruitful! God gave us the opportunity to serve literally in the utter most part of the earth! The people were gracious and so very thankful for our coming. Prayers were answered over and over!

    A few weeks ago, I had the honor of serving with my husband in Guatemala! David and I don't often get to serve together because of our schedules! That was truly a blessing! David and team worked building a new home for a pastor, while I worked in the clinic. <They wouldn't let me build!!>

    May God richly bless you as you serve HIM!!   Anne Lucas

  • Off to Africa this week! Thank you!

    Posted a week ago

    I am excited to be off to Africa Thursday co-leading a medical church planting team. We hope to start four new churches in Ethiopian villages where there are no churches! We will have medical clinics each day as well as home visits. Our team is composed of some dear friends and nursing and pharmacy students! Please pray as we serve among a people group in which only 0.02% are Christ-followers! This is a people group of 23 million individuals!! If I did the math correctly, that is 22.5 million do not know Jesus!  We leave June 9th returning June 19th.

    Please pray as we go!  Your financial support and especially your prayers make it possible for me to serve with this ministry.  Thank you!   Anne Lucas

  • Update

    Posted a week ago

    Looking in the "rear view mirror" of 2015, I find it difficult to believe the year will be over in 30 days!  God has provided me with incredible opportunities to serve Him this year. I pray I have been faithful in His calling!

    Highlights of the year

    • Working with our e3 field ministry team to mobilize laborers to serve.
    • Serving in Russia where we were able to give hope to those suffering from ages of oppression.
    • Serving in Cambodia among the poorest of the poor.
    • Serving children in an orphanage in India.
    • Serving a local Birmingham community
    • Serving in the middle east a few weeks ago among a group of people who live with persecution every day.
    Please pray with me on where and how God wants me to serve in 2016.  Thank you for being faithful supporters!  God bless you!

  • Preparing for 2015!

    Posted a week ago

    2015 is fast approaching, and our teams are gearing up to go into about 40 countries!

    The opportunities to serve are innumerable, the ways in which you can serve depend only on your willingness to be engaged! 

    Specific needs for prayer include

    • preparation as a large number of students register to go
    • 6 teams of nursing and pharmacy students from universities: Samford, Alabama, Auburn
    • work among unreached people groups living the Middle East, Africa, Europe and Asia
    • training of team members to be disciples who make disciples of Jesus
    Acts 4:29-31 comes to mind as a prayer: 

    29 Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. 30 Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”

    31 After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.


    Thank you for your continued encouragement, support and partnership in this ministry!

  • e3 Giving Day .... thank you!

    Posted a week ago

    Yesterday was a truly special to watch how the Lord led partners like you to join forces with us as we prepare ourselves for the work to be done!  Our e3 Giving Day was a blessing!  I thoroughly enjoyed getting emails, phone calls and texts sharing your encouragement!  God always blesses us beyond measure....and always in His time!

    As I am wrapping up the work for this year and preparing for a busy October and 2015, I cherish your continued prayers! At this time, I am preparing to take teams to

    • a new country (for e3) in Europe
    • a displaced people group in Indo-China
    • unreached people groups
    • those searching for the one true God!
    Please continue to pray for wisdom and discernment as we prepare for what God has in store in 2015!

    I pray specifically for you, that God will reveal Himself to you in an awesome and really cool way!  I pray He bless you and your family with His joy!!

    With sincere appreciation,  Anne
