Mother Walker had such a sweet spirit. We really loved her like a genius Mother. Will miss her beautiful smile. But know God loved her best. She has received her crown. Love. Pastor Jerry and Sis. Patricia Bennett. North Carolina.
My siblings and I grew up knowing Pastor Walker as auntie. And I never knew the difference until my mother passed 2010. Even after the death of my mom she did not change she would come to Florida and be Pastor Walker and auntie. Above all she was a Divine woman of God who knew how to pray didn't mind teaching you how to pray and she was out in the hedges and highways reaching the sick and bound. So I thank God for such a woman being in my life. Peace On behalf of Healing Temple Pentecostal Church, Pastor Bishop J.D Wright and Congregation Pastor/Mother Walker will be cherished for her faithfulness on the battle field for winning soul for Jesup Christ. She was God's elect Lady. Pastor Walker no need to worry about being stop from praising God because one day your praise will be everlasting.
Pastor Emma Walker was a spiritual women of God and a mother to many children. She was very energetic and joyful. She loves little children. As a child I thought she was the most beautiful woman. Her husband married my husband and I, and we admired them both. She was a virtual woman whom I will cherish the rest of my life. The Church of the Lord Jesus of the Apostolic Faith, Inc.

Emma was a beautiful woman and a bright light to all who came across her path. I was honored to serve by her side as a volunteer at Project Safe Thrift shop in Athens and she always brought a smile to our customers/staff. What an annointing of the Holy Spirit fell over me the first time I asked this sweet woman to pray for my imprisioned son. She was amazing. I can only imagine the angels faces as they met her at the gate.... her lord as he said Well done .... my child well done. Melissa Beach
