MISSIONARY NEWS – THE HAYNES FAMILY – For the past 8 1/2 years, we’ve been on a journey to serve tribal people. When I say “journey,” what I really mean is White Water River rafting as opposed to an afternoon hike! The one constant in our lives is God and His grace and provision for us. We have some exciting news as we’ve seen God’s provision in our lives yet again! God has indeed led us to serve the Sanapaná people of the Paraguayan Chaco. These first years have been a “warm-up” – the real work starts now. We’re trusting God as we start this new chapter in our lives. We are not adequate for the task at hand and know that only God can do a work like this. So we trust Him; we walk in dependence upon Him and His Word. One of our favorite things to do as a family on road trips is recalling and remembering in detail the ways in which God has blessed us and provided for us. In December alone, we’ve had roughly 3,000 Kilometers of trips, each giving us a chance to reconnect as a family. As we shared stories, we couldn’t help but laugh and think, “That’s such a God thing” when reminded that Jared came down at just age 15 to visit the Camacho family here in Paraguay. One day Jared was invited to travel out to La Esperanza and he shook the hands of two people who, wouldn’t you know it, would one day be his co-workers just 10 years later. Isn’t it amazing how God works? There’s not much left to say but this – “That’s such a God thing!”
