Deloris Lauerman served with her husband, Walter, for thirty years in South America: 15 years in Peru, and then 15 years in Honduras. The Lord worked through them to establish at least 24 New Testament Baptist churches in those fields of service – and then those same churches went on to multiply still more churches…and they are still going and multiplying!
They maintained contact by letter and phone with many of those saints years later after returning to the States to pastor churches here and serve out the later years of their lives in still others of our churches. Many times, we rejoiced with them as they shared with us conversations they had with first, second, third, and even fourth generation believers – some of them whom they had never met. They would remind them of their love for them, thank them for coming to tell them about Jesus, and keep them updated with what the Lord was continuing to do in Peru and Honduras because of the Gospel witness of Christ they had first delivered to them.
Please join us as we express our deepest appreciation to both her and Brother Lauerman for their lifetime of service to our Lord Jesus Christ – and in our prayers to God for her family during this time of their earthly bereavement.
“Well done, good and faithful servant…enter into the joys of your Lord!” – JESUS
