Churches and Voodoo bracelets

So many of the churches here are full of young moms.  Not like 20 something year old moms but like teenage moms trying to raise babies while they themselves are still babies in many ways.

Many of the people here in the small villages are very wrapped up in voodoo.  Everyone wants what is best for their babies so they will go to both the church and the voodoo priest.  While the YWAM Orlando youth team was here, we were able to do 4 different VBS's in some of the local villages.  The pastor at one asked us to pray for a baby and dedicate it to the Lord.  We had the dad on the team prayer over the baby and were able to explain to the aunt and mom that God was able to protect the baby and they removed the voodoo anklet.  We were able to pray and educate quite a few moms at these little churches in the villages. 
Praying for babies here has a lot more spiritual significance than we realize.  We love holding babies and praying over them!  This is one of the greatest privileges that we have here. And it also gives Mom a short break!

Dale praying over this sweet baby and dedicating him to the Lord.  Hannah had put him to of the things she does well.

This is a very typical voodoo anklet that the voodoo priest will put on a baby when they go see them.  Please pray that we can educate more moms and that more of these will be removed and that parents will trust the Lord.

Little things like holding and loving on a baby while Mom enjoys the service is often the thing that helps us be able to speak truth into the lives of those here.

Family Update:
Ned is working in the office here most days and enjoying it.  Debbie is over communications here now.  If you are interested in coming for a visit or bringing a group, please email her at:  Jesse and Hannah are enjoying a summer break from school. The biggest news is that Sammi is headed to NY on Aug 8th to work with All-Access Productions and then to Bethany Global Univ in MN in January.  Check out her info at  Sad to see her go but trusting God with her future. Please pray for our family during this changing time.

Christmas in July!
We are excited to see friends and family this fall/winter.  We need to make a trip home for a visa change, church visits, a short break and holidays with our family and friends.  We will have been in the DR for 2 1/2 years without a trip home and we have not spent Christmas in Indiana in 20 years.  WOW!  The kids are praying they get to see snow for the first time.

Want a visit?  Email us and we will see what we can do.

Can you help make this happen?  We still need to find a way from Florida to Indiana.  Also, gift cards for gas or restaurants would be appreciated too.  We will need some extra funds to make this trip a reality.  Please pray about helping toward our furlough time in the states.

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!
