Now the rush begins to get ready to fly to Chicago. For the first time in more than twenty years , two of my four sons are living within two miles of each other. Family means a great deal to me and I will go to great efforts to spend time with them even though they are spread across the country and around the world. There’s much discussion these days about what consists of a family– it’s certainly more than the original two people. When we get together at our family-reunion next March we’ll be more than forty people.–five children (one with the Lord), eighteen grand-children, twelve great grandchildren. What impact are we making for God? How have our original family values maintained? How have they improved? How did our children’s early experiences in Africa contribute to their values and life style today?
