Bob and Candace Walker
(and the Walker tribe)

Serving in Kitwe, Zambia

 

The Walkers joined the HOB Team in 2006 to become full time directors of the Nehemiah Boy's Ranch for street boys in Kitwe, Zambia, Africa. Prior to joining HOB the Walkers worked for many years as camp directors in a variety of cultural settings. HOB is thankful for the experience and commitment that they are bringing to the overwhelming needs of orphans in Africa. The Walkers are now leading Abba's Heart Ministries for orphans and street kids in Zambia.
