Sandra Renee Walker
Sandra Renee Walker, referred to as Miss Renee by the children she teaches, joined the staff of Child Evangelism Fellowship® on June 1, 2001, as a full-time missionary. Several years ago, the Lord called her to missions at a missionary conference at her church. Her desire is to see many children and families come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior and to see boys and girls grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As a child, she memorized Proverbs 11:30 which says, “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life and he that winneth souls is wise”; from childhood this message has been in her spirit.
