Item Description...
Overview
God used Maurice and Marie Hall to cast a vision in the hearts of Ralph and Gladys Burcham for the lost in war-torn Vietnam. This couple with their two children, Roger and Kathy, arrived in Vietnam in 1966 as the war escalated. With a team of 32 and American servicemen, their successful work included an orphanage, an international school, and the conversion of many Vietnamese and servicemen. They had to leave during the Tet offensive of 1968. Their mission work continued in 1969 and in 1973 with two students from Oklahoma Christian. Plans for returning in 1975 were aborted as the northern provinces of Vietnam began falling to the communists. Therefore the Vietnamese asked the Burchams to try to help them escape. Described in vivid word pictures is the trauma of the fall of Vietnam. The Burchams' congregation became a refugee center and helped scores of Vietnamese resettle in the U.S.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Real Triumph!  Jan 30, 2008
Ralph and Gladys Burcham blessed my life over forty years ago as I was a wet-behind-the ears college freshman and wannabe preacher. They set the example of loving and compassionate Christianity. I learned a grace-based faith that changed my life.

This book brought back those memories as I read about them doing the same thing for countless servicemen, war orphans, and Vietnamese citizens in a war-torn land. The book goes way beyond the media coverage we received in the 1960's to the heart of the people and the heart of the Savior.
 
Learning a different angle  Dec 8, 2007
I have benefited from reading this book because it has given me a different look at what was happening in Vietnam during the 60's when most of what we heard in the states was negative.
