The Hallford family serves with Cadence International ministering to US military community. They will move to Eagle River, Alaska in August of 2022 to serve soldiers, airmen, and families of Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (JBER) in Anchorage, Alaska. Ben is a native of South Carolina, and retired from Army Infantry in 2018, after 20 years of service. Simi was born in Romania and moved to South Carolina in 1995 to attend Holmes Bible College. They have 3 children: Lidia, Teo, and Ruby. After Ben’s retirement from military, God has called them to fulltime ministry. Ben and Simi love the military and because of their military experiences, they understand the spiritual challenges and joys of military life. They will share the Gospel and their lives by leading the JBER Cadence Hospitality House in Alaska. Throughout each week the JBER Hospitality House will provide: Bible studies, fellowship meals, small groups, service opportunities, community outreach, recreational activities, and more. We aim to follow Jesus and helps others follow Jesus as well. “We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the Gospel of God but our lives as well.” 1 Thessalonians 2:8
Way to Pray: Please pray for the Hallfords as they continue to settle into life and ministry in Alaska. They have made great inroads into developing relationship with the military community around them. Please pray that God will continue to grow those relationships. Please also pray for them as they deal with the extreme winter weather.
