Doreen Jeanprêtre Kerr

[TBC 1948]

Following her graduation from TBC, Doreen spent three months at the European Evangelistic Crusade home. On December 3, 1951, she sailed on the Queen Elizabeth to France and then moved on to Switzerland for a year to study French. After a year in Switzerland, she returned to France and worked with children and teenagers during the winter and did camp work during the summer. She married Norbert Kerr in 1960. For four years, they held meetings for children, youth and women in a small hall in Valence, France. In 1970, they began working with the Christian Literature Crusade, where they would stay for 20 years. In February 1997, as a result of a car accident, God saw fit to take her husband Norbert home. Since her retirement, Doreen has been distributing the Gospel of John to people God puts on her path. She tells them it is a “GPS to their life.” Doreen celebrated her 92nd birthday in November 2013.
