As one of the founding members of WIM, Walt has worn many hats: board member, leader of short-term trips, vice president, pastor to missionaries, helper, etc. There have been many seasons in his ministry. He pioneered three churches in the U.S. before joining others in missionary work.
For health reasons, Walt gave up trips and began writing and publishing sermons for indigenous pastors and stories which have been translated into three languages. Walt and Cathy encourage other missionaries to write their own stories of faith in action which the Flemings publish.
Walt believes that one who has been called by God never retires until God calls him home.
