update from india

Greetings from India!!!

WOW!!! What a week!

We have felt your prayers! Thank you for your messages! Yes, we can receive emails. I look forward each time I get online to see your notes so thank you!

We are enjoying ministering! Our family is all doing Children's ministry as slum schools. We not only minister to the children but also to parents and landlords who are not Christian. They allow their children to come so they will learn english from americans but we are free to teach the gospel. In 3 schools we have done the witnessing bracelets and have seen 42 children pray and ask Jesus in their hearts for the first time.

Jesse has taught the children Jesus loves me. He is enjoying TaeKwonDo. and is making friends. He enjoys watching cricket too!! No baseball in India!

Hannah has made two sweet friends who walk her to the gate each day.

Sammi narrowly escaped stitches in the middle of her forehead. PTL. the bunk bed ladder fell squarely in the middle of her forehead leaving a HUGE bruise but did not break the skin. we do not understand why except for the Lord's hand.

Ned and I have befriended a man from Pakistan named Medlan who has invited us to his shop. Ned has made friends with some of the men who own businesses and they invite him in for chai tea! the "thing" in India!!

We celebrated Easter with a huge egg hunt by our leaders in our 4 story building!! Ned was moo'ed at by 3 big cows today while teaching and Sammi 's rickshaw almost turned over!! Life in India is fun! OH!! and it was 102 degrees today and getting hotter each day.

Please share your requests so we can be praying for you!

My praise!! I found an immersion heater for my bucket of water for 190 rupees that is about $4!!!

God is good!
Blessings All~
love and prayers from India!

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!
