George & Harriet Walker
New Tribes Mission - USA
George and Harriett spent 18 years overseas in cross-cultural church planting. Their ministry began in January of 1978. That year they Lord sent them to the land of Papua New Guinea. There they had the privilege to pioneer a work with their co-workers, Bob and Noby Kennell, among the Bisorio people. The Bisorios were an isolated tribe with little contact with the “outside” world. By God’s grace there are now 5 churches and 8 Bisorio pastors. The entire New Testament and a large portion of the Old Testament scriptures have been translated into the Bisorio language. The Walkers continue to have a ministry with the Bisorio believers through periodic visits and continued work on Bible commentaries.
Presently they are training the next generation of cross-cultural missionaries with New Tribes Mission at NTM’s residential training center in Missouri. George is also involved with helping other organizations with training and consulting with field missionaries.
