Walker 5 News

Thank you for being a part of Walker 5 for God and our journey.

From Darkness to Light


This painting depicts a young lady walking out of the darkness of the world and into the light of God all while protected under the authority and love of Jesus. 
Alain, a recent student on my last teaching trip to Cuba, had gone home after class and used his gifting and talent to paint what he had gotten out of my teachings.  I was blown away by this gift that he gave to me. It truly shows what we work to do.  To show others by our actions and words that God loves us so much that under the protection of Jesus we can walk out of the sin of the world into the light of the love of God.  Following Jesus is a process.  It truly is a walk through life. It is not easy and we sometimes find ourselves in a dark place, whether by our own fault or the faults of others.  But there truly is an answer to living in the light.  It is following Jesus and being under his protection and love each day. It is a choice to take Jesus with us daily. 
From Darkness to Light....
This is what we share.  This sums up the goal of our lives.  We serve as missionaries to share this message.  We, just as Alain, use whatever gifts, talents, and knowledge that we have in order to share this message of walking from darkness to light. 
Where are you walking and living?  In the darkness?  In the light? On the path in between?
We hope that you know that you can always reach out to us with questions or for prayer.  We definitely do NOT have all of the answers but we would love to walk with you and help you find them. 
We are so thankful for the gift from a friend that has made it possible to celebrate Christmas together as a family.  We have 4 days this week to celebrate before Hannah goes back to California and to the Middle East to help lead a DTS outreach and Sammi goes back to Georgia to work and continue her studies. 
Thank you for your support.
As full-time volunteer staff with Youth With A Mission, we live on donations and blessings from you.

Thank you for being a part of this adventure.

Jesse greeted Brian with an out-reached hand and said, "It's nice to meet you." 
Brian's countenance changed as he looked up into Jesse's clean bright face.  

It wasn't because of Jesse himself, but how Jesse greeted him, a homeless street artist, with mutual respect and a genuine interest in his life.  As we had sat watching Brian interact with people, Jesse and I had talked about how he was doing art in exchange for the dollars people would give him.  This led us to introduce ourselves and share how much Jesus loves him.  We could tell that our willingness to shake his hand and greet him with dignity impacted him.  We had a great chat about his art abilities and that these abilities are a gift from God and how he should use the gift to glorify God.  We waited out a rain storm talking about God's love and praying.  It was one of the sweetest interactions with a new friend that I have ever had. 

This encounter had started with mutual respect for another of God's creations.  God created Brian in his own image and we looked beyond the obvious "dirt and circumstances of life" and just enjoyed the company.  May we always look for how God created things and wants things to be and work hard to walk them out versus how we think things should be. 
Shiloh and Ned

Shiloh isn't very verbal but he says so much when he rounds the corner and smiles at Ned. As he heads into Ned's office, he makes eye contact for a greeting and then gets to head to the candy basket. 
This may not seem like much but for a little guy struggling to find himself in a world of autism, this is life-bringing interaction with someone outside his comfortable world of Mommy and Daddy and Baby Brother.  Ned has become a part of Shiloh's healing process through a tiny piece of candy once a day. 
We all ministry to people in ways and at times that we really don't understand. We do it through the little things of life. Many of the things we do seem like not much but never underestimate the little things that we do that are big things to the people who receive them. 
Galatians 6:9 says, "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." 
Keep doing the good things no matter how big or small. 
 
Thank you for your continued prayers and support. We can only do what we do through the support of people like you. Thank you!

What are the Walkers doing right now?

We are moving!!

The last week of August, our family will be moving long-term to Santiago, Dominican Republic. We will be working with YWAM Santiago and the Martin Family! We are super excited about this transition. But also praying for wisdom as we figure out visa's, residency, what to do with our things, etc...


As always, we are praying that the Lord will use us wherever we are!



Lord, help us not to miss the things you have prepared for us to do!
