Daniel Kalani Williams
Daniel is a dynamic speaker with a powerful testimony of God’s redeeming love. Born and raised in Hawaii by godly parents, the Word of God captivated and shaped his young mind. In high school, Daniel sensed God calling him into ministry. By the time he was only 18, he experienced much success conducting prayer meetings and evangelistic series across the South Pacific and the west coast of the United States.
After high school, Daniel attended a Bible collage in Virginia, seeking a degree in Pastoral Evangelism. After the unfortunate tragedy of the Washington D.C. Sniper in 2002, Daniel fearfully returned home to his family. Under extreme duress, familial pressure, and distracting disappointments, Daniel fell away from Christ and adopted a worldly lifestyle. He ran from the Lord straight into the arms of secular music, nightclubs, and alcohol. Although he left God, God did not leave him.
After wandering in the wilderness of the world for the next 8 years, Daniel entered into a relationship and started a family. Convicted by God to offer his new family a chance at eternal life through Christ, Daniel returned to the God of his youth. He came back to his home church bringing his family with him. Shortly after, he and his wife recommitted their lives to Christ in baptism. Resolving to lay low and be a faithful church member, leadership opportunities quickly presented itself before Daniel. Leading out in youth and young adult meetings quickly turned into opportunities to do what God had called him to do when he was in high school: public proclamation evangelism. Redeemed and restored by God’s grace, Daniel conducted his first Bible Prophecy Seminar in 2012 with opportunities following in California, Washington State, and across the Hawaiian Islands.
Daniel is now an Elder in his local church in Hawaii. He is frequently called to preach across various churches throughout the islands as a lay-evangelist. He, his wife Lahela, and their two beautiful children Maddex and Michaela, currently resides in Honolulu, Hawaii.
As a new associate evangelist for The Revelation of Hope Ministries, Daniel gives all the glory to God for His loving, redeeming, restoring power and is blessed to be a living testimony of God’s mercy and grace.
The Revelation of Hope Singers
In 2009, the Lord brought four musicians souls together to His church in Waianae, HI. Jackie Esposo, Taylor Fa’aiu and Sivasa Laupati were a part of an evangelistic effort on the island of Oahu in June of 2009. There they helped to minister to their brothers and sisters in Christ through the gift of music. The music helped to ready the hearts of the people to hear God’s spoken word and they sang as a closing to it’s powerful message.
The group was later joined by brother Beejay Crisostomo who was drawn to church for the music but rededicated his life to Christ for the word of God. Since then, the Revelation Of Hope Singers helped minister at various church gatherings, conference campmeetings, evangelistic seminars, and Bible Camps such as ARME Bible Camp. The group recorded their first album entitled “The Revelation of Hope” in August of 2009. They were also joined by vocalist Ramona Rivera who as one of the group members says, “brings a spark to the group”. Together, “The Revelation Of Hope Singers” travel all around the world alongside Evangelist Taj Pacleb and his wife Wati, to preach and sing the good news of God’s love and His Son’s soon return.
