Wayne & Donna Walley served as missionaries to the Philippines for over 40 years — 35 of them as members of Bible Baptist Church, their home/sending church.
Thirty-three years were spent laboring on the island of Mindanao, which has long been the center of a Muslim insurgency. During this time, they were used to establish the Haven of Rest Bible Baptist Church in Cotobato City (1983-88), the Solid Rock Bible Baptist Institute (1984), the Solid Rock Bible Baptist Church in Pigkawayan and the Kampilan Bible Baptist Church in Awang (1991-95). In 1997 Brother Walley helped establish Bible-believing Baptist churches in Norala and Tampakan, and later helped organize the Rock of Ages Baptist Church in General Santos City (2006).
In 2008, because of the untimely death of the pastor of the Rock of Ages Bible Baptist Church, Brother Walley stepped back in to help the young church adjust to its loss, ultimately seeing God provide a new pastor.
In addition to their church planting and preacher-training ministries, Wayne and Donna were heavily involved in printing literature for children’s ministries and preacher-training, in the translation of the Word of God into some of the Filipino languages, and the annual “Camp Courageous” youth camp.
In 2016, Brother and Sister Walley relocated to the island of Cebu. Brother Wayne concentrated his efforts in assisting several of the Cebu City area churches and in a outreach to the Cebu City jail, while Donna gave her attention to the publishing ministry, sending materials throughout the Philippines and to other Asian countries.
In July 2023, Wayne and Donna left the Philippines for the last time, returning to settle close to family in Oklahoma. Both have since received major medical attention. They are now on their final furlough, hoping to visit as many of their supporting churches as possible to express their gratitude and deliver a final report of their long ministry. Following their participation in Bible Baptist Church’s 50th Anniversary week of celebration in August 2024, Wayne and Donna will officially retire to enjoy their well-deserved golden years.
