The Halls' passion for serving the most vulnerable is fueled by their extensive experience in training and leading short-term mission teams from their church in Florida. Since 2009, Tom and Vicky have led over a dozen teams serving those most in need -- from domestic hurricane relief to cross-cultural, child-based community development. During this stage of their journey, they began to feel God's direction moving them toward a call to full-time global impact ministry.
To confirm that calling, God intersected their path with New International in spring of 2016. After a visit to NMSI's Center for Global Outreach in Fort Myers, FL and a short-term vision trip to Africa Hope in Narok, Kenya in December 2016, Tom and Vicky took that next big step in their walk of faith and affiliated with New International in early 2017 and deployed to East Africa in 2018.
In addition to supporting NMSI's child sponsorship program being implemented in Kenya, Tom is also assisting in developing culturally-relevant curriculum for short-term teams coming to Africa Hope to sponsor Orphan & Vulnerable Children camps. Vicky's focus is on ministry to women through bible study, prayer and encouragement to both the staff at Africa Hope, as well as to the mothers and caregivers of children in the surrounding communities. Pray for Tom and Vicky to be fruitful in their first calling to full-time ministry!
