A New Year and an Old Dream.

#My2017Adventure


I’m going to start with a story from what seems like a lifetime ago. I was a bit older than the picture above, I was in 6th grade. It was a normal Sunday morning and I was in Sunday School. I can’t remember what the topic was but we were asked to make a list of our dreams. So I wrote that I wanted to be a missionary to Africa. I told the teacher I was done and she asked me to read my list. I read to her my one dream. She smiled and told me to write down ALL of my dreams. I thought about it for what seemed like forever and the only thing I could come up with was to be a musician. It was the only other thing I could imagine myself doing. 
I knew that God wanted me to be a missionary, so that’s what I wanted to be! But that day in Sunday School a “dream was born”. What started as a child’s dream to become a musician is what led me to learn and then teach guitar to the middle and high school students at my church in Orlando and to help lead worship in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. It’s also the dream I surrendered knowing that God had a life of missions for me, but God didn’t discard that childhood dream he held onto it.

How this Old Dream affects this New Year

This year that childhood Dream can become a reality! I am excited to announce that I have applied to Hillsong International Leadership College in Australia for the July 2017 semester. It is something I’ve wanted to do for a few years now but, the timing wasn’t right. I’m also excited to tell you I will be studying songwriting! 

But I can’t do this alone. As most of you know my parents raise their own support and in that have shown my siblings and I that when God says “GO”, He will provide. For over 8 years now I have watched God multiply the smallest gifts so that what seemed impossible became reality.
The best part is that you can be a part of making this dream become a reality! I can’t do this without you. My question for you is this: Would you be willing to give prayerfully or financially to help make this dream a reality?     

For the last year I have been living in Cartersville, Georgia with my Aunt and Uncle. I found a church that feels like home. I have made some really great friends and I have a job at one of the boutiques in our downtown area. I have been working really hard saving for college but I am looking to raise around $1,200 in monthly support to help cover the cost of travel, tuition and living expenses.

Tour Update!

Speak Life! You can be apart of this adventure!

The Speak Life Tour 2015!

So as most of you know I am currently in New York working with All Access Productions (AAP) and I’m loving every second of it. I came on staff planning on being more of a behind the scenes person and I was cast in the show as one of the “Artsy”. So I get to pretend to be a theater kid in a theater production. I’m being stretched and I am growing in so many areas. I am getting to act, dance and sing in the show and it is so much fun! We are a cast and crew of 26 and the stories of how God brought us together are incredible. Some of us have known about this tour for months, some for weeks and others of us found out 2 days before we started and dropped everything to come knowing that this is what we are to be doing. We are all at different parts of life and yet God brought us all together to live life, to learn from each other and to teach each other in these 3 months.

Meet Olivia!

Olivia is 16, she is one of our cast members, lives here on Long Island and is Amazing! She makes me miss Hannah because they are very similar! She loves dance, Jesus and speaking life to the kids in the schools.
One day at a school we were tearing down all our equipment after our performances and 2 students came up to me and asked if I could talk to their friend. I called Olivia over and the girls came back with their friend who had been crying. When we asked her why she was crying she began to tell us her story. She told us of the bullying she had been through at school because of the choices her older sister had made. She told us the things people said about her and how they crushed her. She showed us the dark places of her life that she hid for fear of people looking down on her and pitying her. She told us her weaknesses and showed vulnerability and we got to speak life into those dark hurting places in her life. We didn’t solve all her problems and mend her broken heart but we spoke life and put hope where there had been nothing but hopelessness and broken pieces.

How you can Speak Life!

Here is how you can be apart:

1- You can give! In order to be apart of this all of us raise $3,000 to help offset the cost of what it takes for a school to bring this production to their students. To give online you can go to:  http://www.allaccessproductions.org/#!donate/c10q8 or you can send a check made out to All Access Productions to:
P.O. BO 663
Smithtown, NY 11787
Please don’t put my name on the check but put a note with my name on it in the envelope.

2- You can pray! The public schools are the most unreached places in America. We are all giving our time and energy; and hearing the stories of broken students everyday is hard and it can easily overwhelm us to the point that we can’t keep going. So pray for energy as we preform, words to say to the hurting student we speak to and unity as we finish out our time together!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND SUPPORT!!

Returning to All Access

All Access Productions (check out allaccessproductions.org) was amazing last year and I am excited to say that I will be returning this fall for another tour.
What is All Access Productions?
Basically, it is a production team that travels into the public school system in the Long Island, NY area to present Speak Life and anti-bullying teachings. This is done in a production sort of way…meaning that it is like a Big Show with a VERY DEEP meaning.

As with all members of the team, I need to raise support in order to be a part. You can donate at AllAccessProductions.org. Click on the “get involved” link and then on “donate”. Look for the place to leave a note and put my name in there. Please also send me a note to faithfuljane8611@gmail.com saying that you gave so that your donation makes sure to be allocated for me. I need $3000 plus airfare in order to take part in this tour.

Thanks for being a part of my life and support! Please keep praying.

What’s Next for Sammi Jane Walker

 

Faithful Jane

Why Faithful Jane? My middle name is Jane from my Grandma Reta Walker. I have lived my life working at being faithful to God. Faithful Jane is a reminder to me to be faithful to God and a good carrier of my family name.

As many of you know my family is working and serving with Youth With A Mission in Santiago, Dominican Republic. Before my parents moved they asked me if I would commit to serving with them for a year. August 27th that year was completed. With that year being completed some of you have begun to wonder and ask “What is next for Samantha Walker?”
Here is the answer!
Next for me is a 4 month season helping 2 families that will be traveling around the states going to different middle and high schools doing a unique musical that gives a voice to the thousands of kids who are being bullied every day. Both sets of parents will be heavily involved in the school performances and so during the show setup, tear down, and the show itself I will be the extra eyes and hands to watch and help with the kids. I am super excited to get to serve in this way.
For more info about the Show itself you can go to: www.allaccessproductions.org
Can you help me with my next step?Along with all of the cast and crew members I have to raise support in order to be a part of this opportunity. I need to raise a minimum of $1600. Can you help?
If you would like to give towards this next season of my life you can send checks made to:
All Access Productions to Samantha Walker 15411 CR 455 Montverde, FL 34756.
or you can send checks directly to me if you don’t need a tax deductible receipt.
