Good morning everyone. WOW - the outpouring of love, prayer and concern for us during this covid time has been unbelievable.  There was no way for us to keep on top of contacting everyone back that reached out to us.  Thus....this email :)   Mike is doing very well.  He is still struggling with "brain-fog" which makes focusing so  difficult.  As far as breathing issues - he's good.  Feeling well - getting there. I am doing better as well.  The pneumonia & covid are gone and the asthma/breathing issues are almost clear.  Next week will be another dr visit to confirm but I believe he'll be happier this time with my progress.  I ventured to church on Sunday but had to return home early.  It's crazy how doing nothing can wear you out :)   For everyone praying for our neighbors, Gary & Fatima, we JUST got some great news. First - They are actually breaking every rule in the book and letting her in to see him Second - Today she saw him, he was awake, gave a little wave and thumbs up Third - He is still on the ventilator, but they are going to try and start weaning him off tomorrow or Friday Fourth - The greatest - I confirmed Fatima's salvation.  She's now Sis. Fatima :)   So, once again, thank you so much for keeping us faithfully in your prayers.  Just knowing how much so many care, makes you feel better :)   My love to everyone, Cindy Haley Botswana

SO MUCH TO SHARE ! March / April 2021 Our days have been FULLY CONSUMED with the construction project over the past 2 ½ months. I (Mike) have lost 19 pounds as a result – man that’s better than NutriSystem! As always, God has been good to us and there is so much to share. Last month we sent out a video update on the construction progress. Here is the link to the video on YouTube: The bathroom block and the framework and floor of the main structure seating 225 persons is all finished. We are meeting under the structure but having to use pop-up shade shelters until the thatched roof can be done. Great progress always meets with opposition and we’ve had our share of it. First it was a Hindu man who was intent on buying out the property from under us but Mr. Simon refused to sell. Recently, we’ve been dealing with an implacable neighbor lady and a resulting spaghetti bowl full of application processes for permits and land use changes that the local government is imposing on us. We were never supposed to be subject to these requirements but the complaint of one person has brought it about and now we have no choice but to comply. “But God” is a common phrase we find in the Scriptures and it reminds us of God’s intervention when we are in need. And so, The LORD has directed us to some key people in government to advise and help us through this tedious and laborious process. How to pray? Pray for the Lord to change the heart of Mrs. M to recognize the value of having the church in the community and please pray for an expeditious approval to our application for change of land use permits. Since our last letter TWO MEN HAVE RECEIVED CHRIST! Buti, Pastor Monte’s neighbor and Albertus both responded in a Sunday morning invitation and were saved. Buti, who was a heavy drinker is now drunk on the joy of the Holy Spirit of God! Monte said he’s a new man! Shame’, Albertus sister, also shared her testimony of receiving Christ as a teenager but, after hearing a recent admonition on recognizing real love and living purely for Christ, made some life changing decisions to be more right with God. On Easter Sunday, we had a powerful day with many lost people in attendance. A Greek man, George, was all smiles after the service and said he had never experienced church like that in the Orthodox faith. Not knowing what to expect he even brought his own incense in case he needed it. The Simon family, who are Catholics, were all there as well. I preached on, “The Resurrection Changed Everything” and it was incredible to see how hungry all these folks were as they heard good ole fashioned Bible preaching for the first time in their lives. Albertus parents, for whom many of you are praying, called that Monday to say they were at a bookstore to buy an English Bible so they could follow along in the messages. I wish I had the words and the space to detail the many stories of how God is working and changing people’s lives. I sense that we are on the verge of another great harvest of souls. It’s no wonder that Satan is working overtime all around the world. His days are numbered Hallelujah! To be honest, we do get weary in the battle but as we see God’s great grace manifested in people’s lives and experience that grace personally through your prayers and faithful support we are quickly encouraged and strengthened to press on! THE SUZUKI – WOW! – We presented the need to buy the Suzuki utility truck and your response was overwhelming! Within two weeks we had the funds needed to buy the truck and man oh man is it ever getting used! It has become the work horse of the fleet. Thank you to each church, family, and individual who gave. Cindy has named it “Suzi” but the guys are refusing. You can guess who will win that one. EMILY – Ah, they grow up too fast! Our Emily is now a 25-year-old young woman and a force for God here in Botswana. When her permits expired, she can no longer apply as our dependent and began to pray about returning to the US to move on to the next chapter of her life. Obviously, I’m a biased Dad but anyone who knows her knows that Emily would prosper greatly in the US. Imagine our joy, (tho we were not much surprised) when she decided to stay in Botswana and serve the Lord here. To be honest, I don’t know how we’d do it without her. Naturally, she wants to experience some independence so for now she’s going to move out of the house…all the way out to the outside guest room which we’re converting into a small apartment and she recently bought a car. I give Emily $200 a month out of our personal support and she does some contract work on the side but to remain in Botswana she will need to raise some support. I don’t think you’ll get a greater return on your investment than you will if Emily is your missionary. She’s indispensable to the ministry here and I hope you’ll be blessed by her presentation video. The YouTube link is: Her plans are to remain in Botswana for two more years as she waits on the Lord’s leading for her future. Would you consider supporting Emily’s ministry as we continue together reaching the lost here in Botswana? We have set a prayer goal of $750 a month. As always, we love and appreciate you and look forward to rejoicing with you in Heaven in the presence of our Lord. Even so, Come Lord Jesus!
