But first Chicago

Standard

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?

About lorrylutz.com

My husband and I spent 22 years in South Africa working with African young people in South Africa under Apartheid which deepened my passion for the disenfranchised. During regular returns to the US I earned my MA in Communications at Wheaton Graduate School. Later I became head of publications for Partners International, edited quarterly magazine. In the 90s I directed the AD2000 Women's Track networking with thousands of international women leaders in Christian ministry. I have written/published ten books on missions, biography, fiction. Presently I have two biographical novels under contract about Dr. Katharine Bushnell, nineteenth century crusader against what is known today as trafficking. I was married to Allen, now deceased, my lifelong sweetheart. We had four sons,( one deceased,) one daughter, and 18 grandchildren. How can I help but praise God for the full life He's given me, and the opportunities even in my senior years, to live purposefully.
