God Is Still The Healer!

Greetings, CAC Family and social media readers!

Three weeks ago, the dermatologist removed a basal cell cancer from my eyelid; Tuesday, three days ago, the GI specialist reversed my severe acid reflux without a single stitch by performing a TIF (transoral incisionless fundoplication). I have been blessed with rapid relief and minimal suffering from both operations, thanks to the overwhelming prayers of the saints and many friends from far and near. By God’s grace, I’ll rarely (if ever) need to take PPI’s (acid reducer meds) again–after nearly 17 years of depending on them to manage GERD.

Just want to say, THANK YOU JESUS CHRIST, and thank you saints and friends of CAC who constantly keep the needs of others at the top of your prayer list. As I’ve said to some who’ve made inquiry, “Pain is lessening by the day as I taper off the pain medicine. I’m on a good track toward a Holy Ghost throw down this weekend!”

Bro. Hugh Avant’s father’s funeral yesterday in Mississippi went well. Additionally, Bro. Hugh said he’d never seen so many folks lined up at a funeral wake. The line, he said, was out the parlor, down the hall, around the corner, out the door, and into the parking lot, for almost two hours! It’s wonderful that those from our church family, although several states away from home, have so much support in times of need.

Is anyone getting excited about the first weekend of 2014?! I can hardly wait to worship and get immersed in the Word with our exciting, loving, caring CAC church family! I’ve been hearing of guests who will be joining us this weekend; even several who are in need of the Holy Ghost. I’m especially looking forward to celebrating my servitude toward my brothers at the conclusion of Sunday evening service. (Sisters of CAC will do so at the same time in their separate location). We’ll follow the powerful and life-impacting example of our Lord by washing one another’s feet, just as He washed the feet of His disciples. If you’d care to do a bit of reading up on the subject, mark these passages: Luke 7:44, John 13:5, and 1 Timothy 5:10.

Once again, thanks to so many who are supporting me in my recovery. Most vitally, of course, is the care given by my amazing, thoughtful, and loving wife, Sis. LaRonda Haymon. What a lady! What a pastor’s wife! I’ll never be able to thank the Lord enough for the day He allowed our paths to merge, nearly 22 short years ago! She means more to me than anyone on this planet!

I’ll sign off by saying that this New Year must find us all praying fervently, expectantly, and evangelistically, as our Great Life-giver, Jesus Christ, so adequately demonstrated. Prayer is our foundational key to a relationship with God. It is prayer that empowers us to live for Him, making His kingdom our highest priority!

God bless your Friday! Keep alert for every opportunity to influence others with the true love and witness of those who are genuine apostolics!

With genuine shepherd love, under the Good Shepherd,

Pastor Haymon

He married LaRonda Ellard, in 1992. He earned a bachelor of arts in Communication from the University of Denver the same year. In 1997, Don became senior pastor. In 2013 he graduated with a Master of Arts degree in Christian Leadership from Hope International University. Today, he is the passionate shepherd of Calvary Apostolic Church of Denver, guided by a compelling and true call of God. For those in his pastoral care, he seeks personal development and spiritual growth as a priority. His preaching and teaching has taken him around the world to at least 10 countries. Under his leadership, he has founded six churches in Burma. The challenge of communicating the Acts 2:38 gospel worldwide remains his heartbeat as well as the constant growth pattern of the local church in Denver. He and LaRonda are the parents of three grown children. They reside in Castle Rock, CO.
