He and his wife Lois were Church of the Brethren mission workers in Nigeria 1954-1968, serving in Chibok and at Kulp Bible School.

Gerald’s memorial service was held at the McPherson church on May 30. A Church of the Brethren remembrance can be found in Brethren Bits of the May 27 issue of Newsline.
Please be in prayer for the Neher family.
