Walkers are in the USA

Dear Friends and Family - Happy New Year! Well, we are here. We enjoyed Christmas with our family on Michael's side. We were able to meet our two new brother-in-laws. New Years was ushered in with family on Heather's side. We saw all the moms and dads, brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews. It was GREAT. Heather was able to see her brother, whom she had not seen for 12 years!

We thank you all for your prayers and support. We have a pretty full schedule, but have had a few openings come available. Please let us know if you would like to have us and speak to your church, youth group or home group.

Our first Sunday back was spent in Decatur, MS - and what a BEAUTIFUL Sunday it was at Church Arise with Pastor Gabe and Amber - and our college friend, Tonette. We felt so loved by everyone. What a privilege it was to be with these folks who have a great heart for the Choctaw Indians in their area. We were able to speak at the Choctaw Tribal School on that Monday - and it was fabulous!

Please keep praying for us. Please pray for safety, protection and health as we travel. We have battled flu and colds. We are praying for snow - enough to build a snowman with our children (to be specific!) :) We love you all and so look forward to seeing you. Our cell number while in the USA is 404-819-9375.

If you are interested in us coming to our church and we don't already have a connection with your pastor or leadership - it best for you to feel out your pastor. Look forward to hearing from you.

Heather, Michael, Beracah, Judah, Josiah, and Charissma
