Amanda Walton Amanda Walton began working for 127 Worldwide in April of 2016. From an early age, the Lord began to shape her heart to serve the orphans and widows of the world. In 1985 she heard the USA for Africa charity single “We Are the World” and immediately asked her mom if she could use her allowance to help children in Africa. In 2010, Amanda had an opportunity to tangibly live out James 1:27 when God called her to leave behind her career in higher education at her alma mater, University of the Cumberlands, to live and serve among the beautiful people of western Kenya. She brings 10 years of professional experience in recruitment, as well as non-profit ministry experience to 127 Worldwide.
Born and raised in East Tennessee, Amanda is a proud farm girl at heart and loves helping out with the family pumpkin business. She inherited the gift of hospitality from her mother, so you will always find a home cooked meal, peanut M&M’s and a comfy guest bed at her home in Kennesaw,GA.
