Ned, Jeff Kenny and Wendel at the market

Ned works in the office at YWAM Azua and runs errands which sometimes leads to a visit to the market.  He manages the finances for the base, pays the bills, plus lots of other general office things.  He is the perfect example of how important "support" staff are to any organization, family, ministry, corporation, name it.  Ned is very often a behind the scenes support staff and he enjoys it a lot! Often times the "support" staff can be overlooked unless they don't do their job. 
One of the biggest things that Ned does is hangs out with these guys.  Many of the Haitian staff do not have a good father figure in their lives.  They have no older male mentors to talk to, to bring their problems to, to learn from, to use as an example to follow,  to laugh with, to just be themselves with....I often see Ned filling this role.  He easily encourages these guys by just being himself and helping them.  He is often found helping them find information on their chicken and tilapia projects or whatever they have going on. Ned is feeding the next generation of Godly men!  The youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow, we all need to help shape their paths in Godly ways. I am very thankful that Ned does this even when he doesn't realize or think about what he is doing.  He is just helping them out or "chilling" as Jeff Kenny would say. 

Chapel Project
Hannah and Jesse were able to travel up to Santiago and work with Casa Grande and Chapel Project on a new chapel in Pedro Garcia.  The location was way up in the mountains where there was no church.  What a great opportunity for them to get to serve.

Sammi is doing great at All Access and it is super fun getting pictures and updates from her.  She just sent one out at
if you want to hear from her what is going on.  Please keep praying as they finish up tour in the next 3 weeks.
We look forward to her joining us in Florida when we are stateside!

Debbie has been teaching weekly support raising classes.  We have enjoyed learning how to write an update letter and how to advertise the tshirts, beads, crocheted hats, and other products that the staff make and sell locally and in our base store.  Plus we have some great discussions on acceptable things to ask in different cultures.  They have never been taught that it is impolite to ask for something when you first meet a person.  Also most Haitian churches do not support missionaries that are sent out from their church.  It has been quite an interesting class most weeks.

Thank You!  We would love to say this to you in person in a few weeks!
November 16th we will travel stateside for 8 weeks.  We will be arriving in Florida and then heading to Indiana via Georgia somewhere in the middle of December.
We really want to see you!
In a week or so, I will send out another update of where we will be and when.  I hope you can join us.  If you would like to have us plan something in your area, a bonfire, church service, dessert get together, dinner, hang out, name it and we will see what we can do.
Also please pray!  We have had quite a few extra unexpected expenses here and need some extra funds for this trip. 
We could use gas cards, store or restaurant gift cards, or whatever the Lord lays on your heart to help us make this a great time of refreshing and rejuvenating.

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!
