Walnut supports the following Foreign Missions:

  • Stephen Ali in Nigeria, West Africa and native missionaries
  • Joe Cannon, a world missionary who we have supported for about 50 years;
  • Berkeley Hackett in Kenya, East Africa, who has been a missionary in Nairobi for 41 years and directs Kenya Christian Industrial Training Institute
  • Paul Kee in Cameroon West Africa, who has been a missionary in Cameroon for many years.  Paul teaches in the preacher training school which was established some years ago.
The Domestic Missions or Stateside missions that are supported are:
