It is with heavy hearts that we share with you the news that our dear friend Gerber has passed away. We have spent many hours pouring into him, and he has been involved in our homeless ministry since it began four years ago. He has been on the streets for nearly his whole life. He was learning to read and write in our literacy class, and we shared God’s truth with him every week.
Gerber had a great heart, and he loved to help out with anything and everything around the center. He considered himself to be Jon’s “personal body guard, ” and he took pride in guarding Jon’s truck and looking out for all of us.
He found joy in joking around with everyone. He was always smiling and he loved to have fun. Gerber will be greatly missed by our family, our staff, our volunteers, and everyone in the Lighthouse Project community.
To Gerber, we say that we love you, and we miss you…the streets took you far too soon. To our friends, we ask that you pray for us as we grieve this great loss.
