We are a husband and wife team, Ray & Kathy Hall. We have been in the ministry for 44 years and during this time we have traveled as evangelists, Ray has served as pastor of churches in Texas, Louisiana and Virginia. We have also served in churches in the music ministry.
We began singing as a family group in October 2004 and in September 2005 we released our first CD project titled Without A Valley. In June of 2008 we released our second CD Project Journey of Faith. In April of 2015 we released
a Piano Solo CD, Amazing Grace, featuring Ray's version of Old Hymns. We have had the priviledge of holding concerts in Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Virginia and North Carolina.
On November 17, 2006 we were faced with the news that Ray had Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and in Stage 4. Everything we had scheduled had to be canceled with him facing a second surgery and Chemo every 21 days for six months. On the 14th of December he began his first round of Chemo. We serve an awesome God. In April of 2007 we were given the news that the lymphoma was no longer active and we were able to spend 17 days on the road in July doing concerts in Louisiana and Texas. Ray went for a six month check up in October 2012 and we were informed that there were 4 spots in his chest that had enlarged. When we finished a 16 day tour in Louisiana, Texas and Florida, we came back to have the biopsy done. We got the news back on Monday night, November 12th and there was no cancer. Went to the oncologist on Thursday, August 20, 2015 and still cancer free.
Ray plays the piano and sings lead most of the time but also helps out with the harmony when I am singing the lead part. I play the bass guitar, tenor sax, clarinet and the piano on occasion. I sing soprano, alto and harmony. Our daughter & granddaughter are no longer able to join us in concerts due to their work schedules and school.
We are still serving in a pastorate position at a church in Chesapeake, VA. I teach a Bible Class on Sunday Morning and on Monday nights. Ray & I also play our instruments during the worship services each Sunday. I also lead the choir for special music and Holiday musicals. Ray helps out in the choir on the Holiday musicals.
We had to take the whole year of 2014 off from our Music Ministry because of health issue. We were faced with some very trying times, but God has brought us through and our faith has grown. Thanks be to God for His grace and mercy. We serve an awesome GOD!
Our prayer is that when we present our programs, the message in the songs and our testimonies will bring a healing touch to someone in need.
"Multitudes, multitudes, in the valley of decisions: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decisions." Joel 3:14
