John and Wilma Hall
Called to love and feed the poor, John and Wilma Hall have been serving in Managua, Nicaragua, since 1999. What began as an “accidental” ministry of feeding children on their back patio while missionary associates quickly turned into a full-time act of compassion. From 2002 until 2009, the Halls traveled around Managua offering Vacation Bible school type training and services to the children, youth, and often adults who were hungry to know God’s truth.
Seeing God use them to satisfying spiritual hunger and desiring to do more to meet physical needs, the Halls purchased a piece of property and built Centro Infantil El Camino. The Center is a two-story outreach in Acahualinca, one of the poorest communities in Managua. A pre-school program, after school tutoring, music lessons, computer classes, Bible Quiz training, and a sharing library are just some of the amazing ministries happening at Centro Infantil. Every Friday, after a short program to introduce the children to Jesus, the Halls and their team serve over 150 children a hot meal and beverage that supplies, for many, the only healthy meal they will have that week.
We have been honored to partner with and take teams to serve alongside John and Wilma Hall since 2005. Having cleared the property that now shines hope to so many each week through Centro Infantil El Camino, it is an honor for REACH to continue supporting the Halls’ dream of being a presence in the community of Managua.
Adam and Alecia Fogelman
The Fogelmans are newly appointed missionaries to Tanzania. Called to train and equip local pastors to plant churches across East Africa, Adam and Alecia arrived in Tanzania in September of 2013. This young family of four has committed their lives to establishing relationships and building community while sharing the mission of planting 10,000 new churches in Tanzania over the next 10 years.
Just three short years after sensing God’s call to go in 2010, they are now poised and ready to share the love of Christ with all they meet. Both Adam and Alecia will also be teaching young nationals in a local Bible college. The Fogelmans have two young daughters, Sydney and Emma.
