Each series of services on our 2017 Summer Mission began with a clear illustration of Psalm 33’s declaration that souls saved brings God’s blessings on any nation.
These two weeks of Navajo Bible Camp and meeting with leaders of the Navajo Nation for prayers for God’s wisdom and blessings on our National heritage, we believe that God is working in mighty ways because you and others are investing in souls for Christ. It’s been our privilege to sow the Gospel seed here in America’s Southwest. Keep praying for God to renew the spiritual zeal of Christian laborers among our Native American brothers and sisters. Pray for God to send more laborers in the Gospel to this field that is indeed ripe for harvest. Pray for the President, Vice President and other Christian leaders on the Navajo Council to lead with wisdom and godliness to bless this nation. Our family moves to the Great North Country, Alaska, for ministry in mid-July. Many people need Christ, many pastors need encouragement, many believers need a refreshing from above, so we go to serve our great Lord. Joy in Christ!
“Your travels sound a bit random! Is there an order to where you go and when?” asked one supporting church member after seeing our ministry slide

presentation. The answer is a resounding, “Yes! There is order and efficiency in our travels.” The Lord opens the doors for our broader travel destinations, and we plan a year or more ahead of time to work out a reasonable route and schedule of events. So, we are traveling and ministering all along the way, often having the privilege to stop at inspirational and educational venues between Chalk Talks. For example, when we passed by The Ark Encounter last summer, we spent a day touring that amazing testimony of God’s Word. We often take the time to travel the highways and byways of America, passing through small towns to see our American heritage, history, and many tributes to our military heroes. We plan our travels to visit missionaries, spend time with pastors, fellowship with retired Christian servants, and generally share the Gospel with all those we meet along the way. So, our family travels together in an effective, efficient way year-round for God’s Glory! Thanks for your prayers as we set out on a 3-month journey of just such amazing ministry as I described above…to Alaska and back on a mission for Christ.
Haynes Family on a Mission
We plan to hold chalk-art services in downtown Anchorage, Alaska, in JULY. This is a unique ministry where three culturally diverse churches meet in the same building, rescuing people from the wrecked lives of addiction to new hope in Christ. Pastor & Mrs. Wayne Graves will join us with a mission team from Ada, OK, to help us in Anchorage (Pray for God’s preparing hearts to receive His Word).
From there, we continue on to open-air evangelism and outreach ministries in Wisconsin and U.P. Michigan before a mid-August revival in Moscow, Pennsylvania. We should be home by August 20 to regroup for a packed Fall schedule of revivals, schools, and special services in VA, NC, AL, WV, and beyond!
Pray for the Good News of Jesus Christ to touch many hearts. Every time a sinner turns to Christ for salvation, we rejoice with heaven’s angels. As you pray, spread the word about our ministry, as we need both monthly support to sustain our family as well as special offerings to make all of this summer’s travel possible. Thank you for helping us spread the joy of Christ!
Thank you for praying for our family in ministry as full-time, faith missionaries encouraging local churches and their surrounding communities. The chalk-art opens many doors for ministry, and we very much appreciate your support to keep us available for God’s use.
We leave Virginia in our RV on the evening of May 27th, after sharing the Graduation Address for Pathway Christian Academy in Christiansburg, VA. Then, in North Carolina a dear friend, Pastor Randy Winn, his wife and daughter will caravan with us for 6 weeks of mission work. Memorial Day begins our trek to a church/school ministry in Louisville, KY (pray for good response from students and families in the community). Then, we head to Oklahoma for revival, outreach, and multi-ethnic ministries in Oklahoma City and Albuquerque, NM. We will spend two weeks in mid-June as keynote speaker and workers at Whispering Cedars Bible Camp on the Navajo Reservation in central New Mexico (Pray for additional workers for this camp).
As our family prays daily together, we often give thanks for God’s blessings of you being in our lives. We appreciate His weaving us together in unique ways to encourage one another. You probably ask, “Is that Haynes Family always so excited about what they do?” The answer is “Yes. Yes! YES!” Because, it’s God’s calling and His giftedness for us!
This year is FULL of ministry all across the United States. Spring & Fall brings revivals, community events, and special services near and far. We spend about 3 months a year helping missions in America, from inner-city and multi-cultural works to Bible camps. We commit to every invitation, depending often on missions support and faith-promise giving. God always makes a way for the Gospel to be shared, believers to be enriched, and church leaders encouraged. It’s amazing to watch all of this unfold! This year is our biggest endeavor yet, so please share this with your church congregation and/or missions committee for a possible special offering for this season of missions.
“Honey, I’m a changed man! I’M saved, totally new inside! I accepted Jesus as my Savior…” The man exclaimed to his fiancée in the church parking lot. That evening R came to revival because his girlfriend told him he needed it. He entered the building angry with himself and the world, determined not to listen, He had been to church before and knew how to tune out a preacher!
But, the artwork surprised him. As he watched Rev. Haynes drawing, he began to listen to the Scripture and message wondering how the picture would develop. R thought, “I want to be like that Evangelist, have his joy, live a happy life with a loving family…. I want to be a changed man like the Apostle Paul.”
R began to cry during the invitation and left the building as quickly as possible after the pastor dismissed the service. Crying in the car, his fiancée told him that he needed to go talk with the Evangelist and get right with God. R came back in, and said through tears, “I’m Lost! I’M lost.” God used the artwork to make R hear THE WORD of salvation! Good News Chalk Talks…worthy of consideration in your ministry.
