RALPH AND GLADYS'S VIETNAM TRIUMPHS AND TRAGEDIES
God uses 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 University.
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 and 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.
