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:

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.

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!
