Discovering the Peaceful Generation in Ethiopia

By Mission Trip

Written by Team Hally Supporter June Duehring

In March 2020 a group from Gardner Fellowship Bible Church spent 10 days experiencing God’s work in Ethiopia. They held a mini-Vacation Bible School at a school called Peaceful Generation. At this school, children from surrounding tribes – which have historically been in conflict with one another – come together and are taught of Christ’s love for all people.

The team brought suitcases of supplies, including 24 Team Hally Bibles. The kids are then able to return to their tribes and are beacons of peace and hope in their communities. Although time in this area was short, witnessing the huge work of reconciliation that God is doing through Peaceful Generation made an incredible impact on the entire team. The Bibles are used to teach the word of God, and are also their primary textbook for learning English.

Seeing how gratefully the gifts were received was extremely humbling to the team. They prayed that the presence of God’s word in these tribes will continuously promote change in the hearts of these people.

Cole’s Special Easter Gift

By Community

Written by Cole’s Mom

I wanted to give our nine year old son Cole a new Bible for Easter.

Mrs. Yust is his Spanish teacher at Mighty Oaks Enrichment Center, and he and Zoey are classmates, so I knew a Team Hally Bible would mean something extra special to him.

He received the Bible Easter morning and when he saw it, he got a huge smile on his face! He opened it and read the front inside cover about Hally’s legacy. He said, “This is so cool!” He loves to read his Bible! We are thankful for this special gift.

Sending Bibles (and Parker!) to the Philippines

By Mission Trip

Pictured above are Parker and the StuMo team in the Philippines during spring break 2020. 

Isaiah 6:8 says, “And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am!  Send me!”

Parker Yust will go on staff with the Student Mobilization Ministry (StuMo) beginning this summer and then continue serving on this ministry team in Cebu, Philippines after he completes his support raising, most likely this fall.

He, along, with a team of current StuMo staff from KU and KSU traveled to Cebu over spring break for training, as well as encouragement. Parker was able to leave two Team Hally Bibles with the current staff in the Philippines to be given to some of the native students. His prayer is to distribute many more the next three years as he tells the college students in Cebu the great news of Jesus Christ.

How Far Have We Come?

By Newsletter

“Then King David went in and sat before the Lord and said, “Who am I, O Lord God, and what is my house, that you have brought me thus far?”  I Chronicles 17:16

If we each look back to what we were doing at the beginning of 2020, could have any of us seen what today in May would look like? So many changes, unknowns, emotions, losses……BUT for most of us when we reflect on a season of grief, we can also find God and joy and peace.  Team Hally was born out of our family’s personal journey through grief and it amazes me that God has continued to use this ministry the past five years, and especially the past couple of months, even when most of us are isolated in our own homes.

We want each of you to know that we have been praying diligently for each of you as well as our country and world!

We would love to come alongside you however we can during the next few months to encourage you personally, to give Bibles for any group, church, mission trip, or maybe just neighbors, to speak to your small group, business, or church about our journey through grief and hope, or to pray for specific prayer requests you might have during these very challenging days.  Please contact us at TeamHally2015@gmail.com if we can encourage you in any way!

Medical Lodge Bible Study

By Bible Study
After three years of loving on the people at the Medical Lodge of Gardner, God opened a door for a weekly Bible Study for the residents! How precious to see these sweet people hungry for God’s Word, choosing their favorite Bible verses, and bringing their own Team Hally Bibles to “read” during Bible Study.

We are currently studying the Gospel of Mark. We recently discussed Jesus getting baptized and several of the residents shared their own baptism stories.

And the King will answer them, “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”  Matthew 25:40

We meet each Thursday from 2:45 – 3:30 p.m. at the lodge for Bible Study.  Please contact us if you are interested in joining us to make God’s Word come to life for these residents.

2020 VBS, Mission Trips And Sunday Schools

By Mission Trip

Once again Team Hally would love to partner with local churches by distributing Bibles to children who don’t own their own Bibles.

If your church has a summer Bible program for children, let us know and we can provide Bibles to these precious children. Jesus loves children “but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 19:14 — and so does Team Hally!  Hally loved to read her Bible when she was only nine years old and we would love to have thousands of kiddos reading their Hally Bibles this summer.

Also, as many churches head all over the world on mission trips this summer, Team Hally has English, Spanish and French Bibles that we’d love to send with anyone who is willing to carry God’s Word to other countries.

Finally, many churches find it helpful to have children all reading from the same version of the Bible during Sunday school, so once again, contact us if the Team Hally Bible would be a benefit to your children’s program on Sunday mornings.
