Rich history. Deeply anointed classes. Bright future for God’s kingdom!
Our newly found friends, Bro. Samuel & Sis. Esther Naing:
A day of “greats.” —The Great Wall of China with my beautiful bride & travel companion. ——The great Apostolic leadership of Myanmar (Burma). Thank you for your prayers, CAC Denver & friends.
Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”Mark 16:15 (KJV)15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
[Long blog alert! Get settled in for a long but important read.]
Here are just a few highlights of how your church, Calvary Apostolic Church of Denver, is making a worldwide impact. We give God all the glory!
On our home front:
– Our weekly Pakistani Bible study continues to grow. Just this week we were able to have lunch with a professed atheist who we were introduced to through Brother Errol Roy. Conversations centered in scripture were sustained the rest of the day!
– Our first Spanish Bible study took place last Saturday, and hosted approximately 14 participants. We appreciate the ministry leadership of Bro. Chris and Sis. Lindsay McHugh in this exciting ministry. Incidentally, we are currently implementing wireless Spanish translation for every worship service at CAC. Please invite your guests who are Spanish-speaking to come and participate, hearing the entirety of our worship services translated into their language!
– We have made brand new friends and contacts by visiting several Denver area hospitals.
– Glenwood Springs vicinity church plant is forging ahead. Saturday, October 21, I will accompany a team of CAC ministers to Gypsum, CO where we will meet, pray, and collaborate with local apostolic saints and ministry in preparation for a new church plant. We are seeking God‘s perfect plan to reach the vast harvest of souls who at present have no Apostolic community to encourage and support them along the I-70 Corridor.
– Keep in mind, for the month of November 2017, we will be focused on helping all of those in need in our local church community through various ways of giving. The theme is, “Generous Living.” Look for detailed emails soon to come.
– While we are away in Myanmar (Burma), November 1-9, CAC Denver will be blessed to hear the Word proclaimed in person by our missionary to Roatan, Rev. Steven Jones. You will see pictures of the brand new church facility that is being built there and the many souls being saved. We give thanks to you as a congregation for your continued generous giving. Come with excitement to hear of the great things God is doing in Honduras and bring an offering to help further this exciting and progressive work. **All Hope Corps alumni who have traveled to Roatan, please arrive to church Sunday morning, November 5, wearing your blue shirts for a group photo with Rev. Jones.**
– Finally, I would like to share our vision for Myanmar (Burma) and entreat you to join us in prayer and fasting for our first visit among the hungry souls in that part of the world. Remember the time difference is 12 1/2 hours later in the day but your prayers will be heard and answered as you pray for our safety, witness, and influence upon a burgeoning outreach opportunity.
– Pastor Haymon’s testimony and vision for a fruitful and harmonious visit to Yangon, Myanmar:
In June 2017, a denominational Burmese Pastor/Evangelist received revelation of baptism in Jesus name at Calvary Apostolic Church of Denver. His name is Samuel Naing Mana. The moment he was baptized biblically, he began preaching Jesus Name baptism the remainder of his tour among Burmese churches throughout the United States. When he returned home to Yangon, he began teaching and preaching Acts 2:38 and the revelation of God in Christ.
Since his return home, he has enthusiastically sent request after request for us to come there locally to teach Bible truth to his network of pastors and to establish a Calvary Apostolic Church of Myanmar (Burma’s new national name). By God’s grace, and a series of miraculous events, we have made acquaintance with the Myanmar United Pentecostal Church’s founder’s son, Bro. Elvis Buai, a UPCI evangelist who currently lives in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. He will be returning to make his permanent home in Yangon in March of 2018. He is answering a call from God to provide ministry and leadership in that part of the world. Lo and behold, he is available and will be our tour guide to Myanmar on November 1, 2017!
A brief outline of our expected plans for the trip:
Thursday, November 2, we arrive. Friday, November 3, we join for a meal with the local UPC Elder, Bishop Ral Buai, who has established some 209 churches in Myanmar in the last 52 years! What a legacy. We plan to discuss and preview events we expect to unfold along with times and locations. (I have been honored with an invitation to preach at the main service of the headquarters church in Yangon on Sunday morning, November 5).
Later that day, we meet with Bro. Samuel Mana. We will discuss the following plan for establishing deeper doctrinal understandings and providing solid ground for future fellowship and instruction. Among the highest priorities of the trip is providing the critical point of contact, association, and harmony between he and his network and the established UPC apostolic churches in Myanmar.
On Sunday, at 3:30 PM, I will host a special service for Bro. Samuel at his home church. At that time, by request, we officially plan to found and establish the Calvary Apostolic Church of Myanmar. I will also endeavor to deliver the majesty and essentiality of Jesus’ Name baptism to that new church.
Monday, November 6, at 5:00 PM we will meet at the home location of the newly founded church for more doctrine and Bible Study.
On Tuesday, November 7, I will invite the leadership from Brother Samuel’s group to the headquarters church to meet Bishop Buai and have a final on-site Bible study. I would hope that it will culminate in baptisms right there at the UPC headquarters location. In Jesus’ Name!
On Wednesday, November 8, we begin our trip home, arriving Thursday.
Such a trip (and such revival happenings) are only possible with the loving support of an amazing church family that is excited about the Great Commission! Thank you, in adance, and retrospectively, for making financial and prayer investments in the forward progress of God’s kingdom at Calvary Apostolic Church of Denver!
Jesus, lead the charge!
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Donald Haymon II
Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil. –Hebrews 6:19 (KJV)
If ever the world, the church, and the family needed a rally cry for apostolic relationships, anchored in scriptural principles, it is now.
Beth Baus, LFMT, (San Bernardino, CA) and Dr. Daniel Blash, PhD, (St. Louis, MO), will speak to the need and the blessing of Bible-based relationships. You will be inspired, guided, and refreshed as these Spirit-filled, licensed, and professionally active counselors lead us in achieving balance and health in our individual lives and our communities. After all, isn’t it in the boundaries, peace, and love of our relationships that we find true definition as Jesus’ disciples?

God is so good to Pastor Don, LaRonda, and the Haymon family. (Special thanks to the Shane Gibson family for the generous contribution toward our cruise! Happy 20 Anniversary to you precious love birds!)
More picts to come as we figure out wifi on the cruise ship. 🙂
April 14 Morning and Evening Devotion from C. H. Spurgeon (See below for CAC announcements and electronic invitations for your contacts!)
“Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him.”Isaiah 3:10
It is well with the righteous always. If it had said, “Say ye to the righteous, that it is well with him in his prosperity,” we must have been thankful for so great a boon, for prosperity is an hour of peril, and it is a gift from heaven to be secured from its snares: or if it had been written, “It is well with him when under persecution,” we must have been thankful for so sustaining an assurance, for persecution is hard to bear; but when no time is mentioned, all time is included. God’s “shalls” must be understood always in their largest sense. From the beginning of the year to the end of the year, from the first gathering of evening shadows until the day-star shines, in all conditions and under all circumstances, it shall be well with the righteous. It is so well with him that we could not imagine it to be better, for he is well fed, he feeds upon the flesh and blood of Jesus; he is well clothed, he wears the imputed righteousness of Christ; he is well housed, he dwells in God; he is well married, his soul is knit in bonds of marriage union to Christ; he is well provided for, for the Lord is his Shepherd; he is well endowed, for heaven is his inheritance. It is well with the righteous–well upon divine authority; the mouth of God speaks the comforting assurance. O beloved, if God declares that all is well, ten thousand devils may declare it to be ill, but we laugh them all to scorn. Blessed be God for a faith which enables us to believe God when the creatures contradict him. It is, says the Word, at all times well with thee, thou righteous one; then, beloved, if thou canst not see it, let God’s word stand thee in stead of sight; yea, believe it on divine authority more confidently than if thine eyes and thy feelings told it to thee. Whom God blesses is blest indeed, and what his lip declares is truth most sure and steadfast. Amen!
Reminders and announcements:
Today is Day 3 of CAC Fasting Series – “ME” – Eliminate negative, divisive, toxic speech, attitudes, etc.
EASTER AT CAC!
Easter Sunday is going to be awesome! 10:00 am service only. Tomorrow (Saturday, 4/15) is rehearsals and sound checks as follows: 3:00 pm Orchestra; 4:00 pm Musicians; 5:00 pm sound check for choir, ensemble, and kids.
Grace, “charis” in Greek, is defined as “divine influence on the human heart reflected in the life.” God has been GRACEful to CAC Denver for over 60 years. This past week has been no exception!
As you may know, we have been praying for months now regarding the replacement of the boiler system for our auditorium and main facility. The Christmas Eve sewage backup caused by city maintenance jetting, has created quite the cascading effect of inconveniences and expenses. Looming on our horizon was the potential of having to pay for a large portion of a $250,000 new furnace and boiler system. This, including dismantling of walls and doorways to allow installation access into the building, is looking like it it may total nearly a half $1 million project!
Thank you for praying! Just this week at a high-level meeting called by our insurance company, including out-of-state engineers, contractors, and adjusters, we were given the news that we can expect this not to cost CAC a penny! Even the $1000 insurance deductible will be reimbursed! Our new insurance company seems to be much more accommodating. They will hire subrogation attorneys to deal with the matter as it relates to our city water district. Just wanting to give you a Praise Break on this beautiful Friday! Isn’t God good?
One more exciting testimony from Sis. Tracy Leach that I wanted to share, direct from a text message she sent yesterday:
Good afternoon, Pastor.
I know Gil will never say so I wanted to tell you. Today, the nurses, and both Chaplains at PSL told Gil that they have had excellent feedback on Chaplain Gil. In fact, several patients have requested Gil to visit them again. God is using him mightily, I believe. One patient even said he wants to go Gil’s church when he gets out of the Hospital. Gil gave him a church card so we hope he will indeed visit. Just thought I would let you know.
We Love you and Sis Haymon.
Tracy & Gil Leach
Quick reminder that there is a special youth conference at Pastor Skowron’s church in Johnstown starting this evening at 7:30 PM. Transportation is available for CAC Unbound Youth leaving the church at 6:00 PM.
Tomorrow, Saturday, starting at 9:00 AM is a very important Church-wide Spring Workday. It is urgent that everyone make every effort to be present so that this workday goes quickly and is accomplished efficiently.
Lastly, there’s an Upperclass (60+) fellowship event tomorrow, Denver Museum of Nature and Science IMAX. We’ll be viewing the 1:00 showing. Please contact Sis. Debbie McClimans to be sure you’re counted in. Her cell is (303) 887-0321.
Please stay tuned to our church website (www.cacdenver.org) and our regular church announcements so that you don’t miss a detail of the exciting things happening at CAC. God is on the move! We are so thankful for revival and all of the precious new souls among us.
Hebrews 13:16 (AMP)
Do not forget or neglect to do kindness and good, to be generous and distribute and contribute to the needy [of the church as embodiment and proof of fellowship], for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
This Sunday, March 5, at noon, the praying saints of CAC Denver will have a special Dream Big prayer meeting on some land for sale. Everyone is invited to step off the boundary and pray fervently to stay in step with God. We’re outgrowing our beautiful facility at Yale & I-25. God has ALWAYS provided, so let the adventure continue!

Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV)
 ¶ Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Greetings and gratitude are in order today for the most loving and caring congregation on the planet! You are literally the hands, eyes, voice, and feet of Jesus! If I were looking for a church that cares like Jesus, hands down, it would be Calvary Apostolic Church Denver! The outpouring of love, gifts, messages and calls has been extraordinarily comforting. Most importantly, your prayers are prevailing! My beautiful wife was favored by a successful surgery yesterday. We are so thankful. Recovery is underway and we continue to covet your prayers. God willing, one more visit by the doctor and we are homeward bound! Complete return to recovery is expected to take about six weeks. Again, thank you for your deep Christian (agape!) love and concern. -Pastor Haymon
