Mike was raised in a Christian home, saved at the age of twelve, and answered God’s call to preach as a teenager. It was during a morning chapel service, as Mike studied for the ministry at Heritage Baptist University in Indiana, that God used a message on missions to stir his heart for world evangelism. In 30 years of ministry the Haley’s have pastored two churches (Indiana and North Carolina) and served as church planting missionaries in Romania. Cindy was born and raised in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina where her father Dr. Randall Parker served as a Pastor. Cindy was led to Christ by her mother at age 5. Mike and Cindy have been married for more than 27 years and have an adult son, Brock who lives in Indiana and their daughter Emily who serves alongside of her parents in Botswana.
BOUND FOR BOTSWANA – Acts 20:24
In 2014 the Lord called the Haley’s to Botswana in southern Africa and they arrived on field in January 2016. In their first year of service the Haley’s planted Grace Baptist Church in the capital city of Gaborone and established a legally recognized representative branch of BIMI, that opens the door for other missionaries to serve in the country. National pastors and ministry leaders are being trained in doctrine at the Grace Baptist Bible Institute and practical church planting through an extensive outreach ministry of soul-winning and discipleship. Established relationships with the government of Botswana has opened the door to preach and distribute New Testaments on public school and college campuses, and at police stations, prisons, military bases and government offices throughout Botswana. In this land where David Livingstone once labored, please pray that God will send forth more missionaries to the ripe harvest fields of Botswana.
