“One hopes that the next generation will prove capable of the expectation which the Foster legacy has bestowed on them. Certainly, the drum must go on beating where he stopped.”
- Pastor Victor Ajayi, 2009
Andrew and Berta’s son Tim Foster has carried the torch lit by his parents throughout Africa. Working with the Christian Mission for the Deaf, he continues to ensure deaf children receive education.

Tim Foster’s passion for his parents’ mission grew from seeing their work as a child. He uses sign language to preach the gospel on his frequent trips to Africa.
