The Walton Family includes Jef, Renatta, Jasper, Hazel, Daphne, and Finley. They are currently working at Village of Hope - Malawi (VOHM), a ministry to orphaned and vulnerable children.
Village of Hope - Malawi provides education through its school, healthcare through local hospitals, nutrition through its feeding program and shelter through its children's homes to at risk children. Jef and Renatta Walton serve faithfully as the National Director and Village Administrator of VOHM.
In total, 79 children live in the children's homes at VOHM ranging in age from toddlers to teenagers. VOHM also supports a number of children from a nearby high density and low-income community named Kauma. Renatta is also an adjunct faculty member at Master's College and Seminary where she continues to teach online courses.
Before being known as Community Pentecostal Church, we as a family were known as “Stirling Pentecostal Assembly”. Our building here was built in 1962 with $12,000 in Bank notes and under the leadership of Bob Donnan. Here is a photo of the day they broke ground.
