Don & Patti

Missionaries Don and Patti Hall


Dear Friends and Family,

Spring was a busy and fruitful time of evangelism, training and disaster relief in several Gulf States - plus the 50th Anniversary events in So Cal and No Cal. The Vanguard alumni missions trip to NZ and Fiji had to be postponed until early next year, so we are staying active in prison and church ministry -- with other mission outreaches coming up soon.

Prison chapel services are being conducted and inmates visited. One young man, Ryan, had an amazing conversion in jail, and is now home with his family. A former gang-banger at Chino Prison responded with an open heart to the Gospel. And at the Youth Correctional Center, Don led another prisoner to the Lord. Three guys, 3 facilities, and 3 colors (white, brown and black) - yet Jesus loves them all!

Alaskan MooseOur 50th Anniversary Alaska cruise is coming up mid-August. Patti's brother and wife will also be going. We appreciate so much those who have helped to make this special occasion possible! Picture: Newborn Alaskan Moose

This will be the third time to our nation's largest state, but before it was by plane and for ministry. The
first trip was nearly 30 years ago when Don served as a volunteer Chaplain for the oil field workers on the northern slope of Prudhoe Bay. He also spoke at churches in Fairbanks, Anchorage and Kenai.

Mike EnschThe second trip in '94 was upon the invitation of the Senior Chaplain for the Alaska Department of Corrections. Rev. Mike Ensch, a former drug abuser & graduate of TC in Los Angeles, is still employed by the state to oversee all religious programming for the prison system. In addition to seminars at several facilities, Don ministered at Native American Bible College, churches and Teen Challenge.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        We were just in the SF Bay Area speaking for two Samoan churches and participating in a special celebration for close friends, Dr. Tony & Nadine Williams. It was their 35th Wedding and 20th Church Anniversary. In June, we were so blessed to have them share at our 50th event in NoCal, so we were honored to return the favor.

Tony Williams, Nadine & Don & PattiTony was a heroin addict who came to TC Hawaii from the streets of San Francisco. After completing the program and serving on our staff for awhile, he continued his education - then served for several years as Associate Pastor for two large Afro-American churches in LA and San Diego.

20 years ago, the Williams moved their family to San Jose where they gave birth to Maranatha Christian Center. With an attendance now of over 1,000, they are making a profound impact upon the community.
Praise God for another "hidden treasure" - bringing other priceless souls out of darkness!

Thank you for being a part of our lives and ministry over the years. There are many others like Mike and Tony who need to be reached in this nation and around the world. What we said in 2000 still holds true:

"Our task is not finished. . .darkness abounds. . .the cries of the lost are still heard. . .
Christ is coming soon. . .and many still need the Savior!
Together let us share the Good News in 2000 and beyond!"

Faithfully in Service,

Don & Patti Hall
