Walter Kerber - Founder
May 15, 2007 is a day the Kerber family will never forget. After Walter visited his doctor for an annual check up and was told he was in good health and after golfing 18 holes and planting flowers in the backyard Walter died of a massive heart attack.
The Kerber Family performed the funeral. Walter’s son-in-law Phil mentioned that this experience for the family was like an earthquake but they have found that the foundation stands firm. At the conclusion of the funeral his wife Elsie and their four daughters sang "In the Sweet By & By." There wasn't a dry eye in the audience.
The following are some of his passions and accomplishments through the For We Care Ministry.
In Cameroon, local congregations build church walls and then wait up to 20 years to get a roof. Walter’s compassion led him to raise money and volunteers to build ten roofs. We praise God for the funds given in Walter’s memory. They helped to get another 3 roofs completed, one of them, at Mile 8, was built in Walter’s memory.
Walter loved going to the Baptist Bible Schools in Russia to teach the Book of Isaiah. Over the ten visits he taught 300 plus students who are involved in teaching, leading and preaching in house churches.
Brazil was another country for which Walter had a real passion. He became aware of the plight of thousands of boys who crowd the streets of Brazil and, working with local missionaries and pastors, encouraged the For We Care Outreach ministry to get involved in assisting in the original construction or expansion of an orphanage, a drug rehabilitation centre for boys, a Baptist Camp, and two churches for Unreached People’s Groups (in Florianopolis). We rejoice that 3,000 children and youth attend the Camp each year; children found at the city dump, on park benches, or on someone’s doorsteps have been taken into the Orphanage, many of which have been adopted by loving caring parents; and boys with addictions are being helped.
Walter left a great legacy - and all those who continue to support and/or volunteer with For We Care Outreach will be building a legacy of their own.
