From Red to Blue! 


Well, the Walkers are on the move!  We are moving from the "red" Dominican Republic to the "blue" United States. 

You know sometimes you just KNOW that you are to do something.  Well, that is where we are. We know that God has told us to leave the Dominican Republic.  So God said, "GO!"...so here we go.  We will be working with YWAM in the US for the next while and we are trusting God to show us exactly what is the best fit for our family.  We are arriving in the US the week of January 24th and will be traveling to visit some of the YWAM locations mainly in the eastern US.  IF you would like a visit, we might just be in your area so please let us know. We know we will be visiting from Florida to Virginia and all the way to Kansas City. So, let us know if you'd like to host us for a night or a meal or just to hang out. We would love to visit friends and touch base. We would also love to share with your church, small group, youth group, Sunday school or whatever fits your schedule best!

Please be in prayer for us as we transition and find the best fit that God has for us. Also pray that Jesse can do his school work well while traveling.

We are very excited to do missions in the United States! We have learned so much about day to day evangelism and serving so we are excited to put some of this to work in our own country!  Will you please join us in prayer for God appointments as we travel and opportunities to minister to our fellow Americans.

 

Can you help us purchase this 2012 Ford Escape?
In order to check out the different YWAM locations, we have to purchase or rent a vehicle.  Through the organization, www.mats.org we are planning on purchasing this Escape.  We need to raise the money for it or they will help us finance it at a special low rate.
We need your help, though, please pray about giving a one time donation or sponsoring a monthly payment! We are asking God for the money for the whole payment so we don't have to finance. The cost is $14,990.  Please help!

Or do you have another idea for a vehicle for us?
Please email us at Walker5forGod@yahoo.com with questions or suggestions.

Happy New Year!

The end of 2016 and looking ahead to 2017.
For our family 2016 has been a year of great changes and travel.  This is the first year that Sammi has not lived with us in the DR.  In August, Hannah left for her Discipleship Training School and is currently serving in Athens and the Middle East until the end of February.  Jesse was a "co-leader" bodyguard photographer to our small team to Cuba and has been adjusting to being an "only" child. A task that is very hard in a foreign country without an American friend base locally. Ned has enjoyed running the office and doing the book keeping for YWAM Azua.  Debbie has travelled and taught a lot and enjoyed it.  She taught in the DTS here in Azua and another one on another island, visited Haiti and Cuba twice.  Ned and Debbie did a training in Kansas City and we also helped host teams here in the DR.  Yes, 2016 was busy but good! 
NOW ON TO 2017
We know that 2017 will bring big changes!  The biggest of which we are working on currently.  The Walkers are moving out of the Dominican Republic.  Where are we going? 
That is a great question and one that we pray, God will answer quickly.
God is faithful and we trust Him.  He has shown us in many ways in the past 6 months that He was bringing change.  He has shown us in the past 2 months that the first step to this change is to go back to the US for a time.  This has been confirmed through many, many people and events. 
So for now, we pack and get ready to move.  And we trust God to show us exactly where we are going. He is God and we are NOT! And this is a very good thing!

It is NOT too late to give an end of the year donation.  Please consider donating at:

www.YWAMOrlando.com/nwalker

With the move coming up before January 29th, we are in need of some extra funds to move, to purchase a vehicle in the US and to establish a home there.
There are many factors that have gone into this decision.  The biggest is that we feel God moving us, of course.  Other important factors include our vision of hosting teams from the states and wanting to be able to recruit more teams from there.  Another is the fact that Jesse is the only child at home and living in a very poor area of a foreign country is not the best environment for him and does not give him the opportunities for education and sports that is desired.
Please email and ask questions if you have any. Thanks for your prayers.
NO! We are not leaving YWAM, we are just transitioning from one location to another in order to serve God how He sees fit.  And what is the best for our transitioning family and children.

Merry Christmas


From

the Walker Family

Thank you for being a part of our adventure in 2016 and in years past.  It has been a fun and adventurous one that is for sure.
We are reflecting this Christmas more than ever on the true beauty and meaning of Christmas. This is our first one separated but we are united in heart and know that God is using us all.
This past year we have leaned into God like never before and know a deeper love due to it.  What a blessing that is.
Our pray for you is that you will know a deeper love in Jesus and trust Him more. And see how much you mean to Him! In this place of seeing ourselves as Jesus sees us is where our value, calling, and our destiny is birthed.
Love and blessings to you all!
It's official!  Sammi has applied for Hillsong College in Australia.  This has been a dream of hers for over 3 years so she has taken a step of faith and applied. She will pursue studies in music.  If you would like more information or feel like you can sponsor her, please email her at sjw8611@yahoo.com.
Hannah is headed to Greece and the Middle East for 10 weeks for her Outreach.  Please be praying for her and she is still about $300 short of her needed fees.  It has been great to hear her stories of what God is teaching her. You can send her a Christmas note to hattiecat97@yahoo.com or any questions you might have about what she has been learning.
"I know I'm not very old but I remembered something from when I was little tonight."... is how Jesse started telling us a story as we sat relaxing after having cleaned up from the YWAM DR Christmas party in Santiago this past week.  He told us of remembering when he was 8 and the older adult guys (mainly college age) would play with him when we first joined YWAM. He recalled how the older teens at Central Assembly and SAINTS used to pay attention to him when he was even younger.  At the party he had played soccer and sang Christmas carols alongside 9, 10 and 11 year old YWAM boys from other YWAM DR bases. 

"Now that I am older, I never want to forget to stop and play with little kids because I remembered what it meant to me at their age."

This Christmas season and all year, lets put into practice the life lesson that Jesse has learned.  Let's remember to stop and play with people of all ages. The angels stopped and sang to declare Jesus's birth! The shepherds and wise men stopped to worship.  Let's also stop and worship Jesus this Christmas.  Not just in thought but also in our actions towards others.

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!
