Hi, I'm Luz See my profile

My story

I was born in Germany. I met members of TFI in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1980. Since then I have been serving as a fulltime missionary throughout South America—Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay, Chile and Mexico, for 32 years! I am now back in Germany.

Why I am a member of the Family International

I have been guided to Jesus and His wonderful Word and promises through the writings of TFI’s founder, David Brandt Berg, and his wife, Maria Fontaine. The very rich, spiritual training I‘ve received in TFI has given me an understanding of what I am here for, in this life; it’s taught me how to connect with my Heavenly Father; how to interact in a godly manner with others; how to lead people to Jesus … and so much more that I don´t have space to write about here.

How I live my faith

I came back to Berlin, Germany, after being away from Germany for nearly 40 years. We are a small community of four TFI members here. Together we have weekly Bible classes along with a small group of people who love the Lord and the Word.

Missionary experience

Youth Outreach Ministries
Over the years I have been involved with teaching young people how to engage in outreach.
Child care and education
I have taught/homeschooled some of the children in our missionary homes—mostly younger grades.
Personal Witnessing
This has been my favorite! Years of preaching the gospel almost daily has given me rich experiences and interaction with all kinds of different people from all walks of life.
Humanitarian Aid/Volunteer Work
When in Brazil I worked in the “favelas” (slums), taking regular food packages to poor families and teaching them the word of God. In Paraguay I was part of a ministry working with street kids. We cooked regularly for around 100 street children, and taught them Christian values through videos. I also visited a prison once or twice a week for four years, ministering to the inmates. We had amazing results with many changed lives.
