WAYNE DRAIN MINISTRIES | May-August Newsletter

Dear friends,

Willie Nelson’s “On The Road Again” could be our theme song since the last newsletter. June and I are finding our new rhythm in this season of increased travel in ministry. We are thankful for God’s favor as we go from place to place preaching, advising leaders, and encouraging people through prophetic ministry! A pleasant surprise has been the continued open door into what I call ‘The Houses of My Fathers.’ Invitations into historic churches such as the Anglicans, Methodists, Baptists, Presbyterians, and Church of Christ have come quite unexpectedly. I’m being asked to speak on such topics as: The Person of the Holy Spirit, Prophecy for Today, Healing, Being Naturally Supernatural, and Unity. It seems the prophet Malachi’s cry to ‘turn the hearts of the parents to the children and the hearts of children to their parents’ is gaining traction across the earth.

It’s exciting to let you know that we are observing an elevation in the workings of the Holy Spirit in various churches, conferences, and events we are being invited to. It’s very heartening to see an increase in salvations, healings, and transformed lives. I believe the growing hunger and thirst we’re seeing for the presence of God are like prophetic signposts pointing to a growing move of the Holy Spirit. It’s wonderful to see a fresh openness to simply allow the presence of God to transform people, who in turn are being used to transform the places they have been assigned to influence by God’s Spirit. It feels like a time for pioneering steps of faith into new fields of grace. Could a Spiritual Awakening be near?

UPDATES FOR MAY THROUGH AUGUST 2018

MAY 2018
Mary Ann, Chris, June and Wayne

Enjoyed participating in ordaining elders in a presbytery service with Pastor Dennis Owens and Centennial Fellowship in Whitehall, Arkansas on Mother’s Day. From there, June and I drove to Lexington, Kentucky to celebrate our son Christopher’s birthday with him and Mary Ann.

On May 20th I spoke on “Being Naturally Supernatural” in Grace Church in Alma, Arkansas. Home for a few days then flew to Hartley, Delaware to be with Pastors Richie & Lisa Lambert and Solid Rock Church. My messages were entitled “We Are Family” and “Team Work.” Honored to ordain two elders and a deacon. I am loving partnering with local pastors in raising up, recognizing, and mentoring leaders in churches I have ongoing relationship with. (Picture to the left Wayne & Pastor Devon Walker)

It was a pleasure to help host The Fellowship Presbytery on June 1st – 3rd here in Russellville.

The Presbytery Team

The following weekend we joined with colleagues and friends for Gateway’s annual presbytery held this year on June 8th – 12th in Southlake, Texas.

Worship Service @ Gateway Church

Although Pastor Robert Morris was at home due to illness, it was a joy to worship with the Gateway tribe.

JULY 2018

VACATION!

“We’ll get there fast and then we’ll take it slow.”

After this busy time of travel, we loaded up and headed to SW Arkansas for a family vacation on Little River. We brought our two granddaughters back home for VBS Week. It was my great joy to baptize Madison! I was invited to speak in The Westside Church of Christ here in Russellville on ‘Unity’ on July 11. It was deeply fulfilling to get to share in this historic church for the first time with my friend Pastor Tim Tripp.

AUGUST 2018

They told me it doesn’t get that hot during July in England…

I arrived in England the last few days of July to experience a record breaking heat wave. Most people don’t bother with air conditioners in England as the weather is usually mild. Not this year! I was invited for the Naturally Supernatural Conference run by the Soul Survivor Church and Pastor Mike Pilavachi. Several thousand fathers, mothers, sons & daughters in attendance to worship and minister to God and each other. By the end of the week, we had seen nearly 300 salvations, 200+ filled with the Holy Spirit, and a number of folks authentically healed! It was amazing!

Naturally Supernatural Conference

From the Stafford Showgrounds, I went on to minister in Henley Baptist Church in Henley-on-Thames with my good friend Pastor Roger Cole, where I debuted my new song “While You’re Sleeping.” Very pleased with positive response. (Can hear new song on my web site.) The next day, Roger drove me to the Lark In The Park event hosted by Pastor Paul Weston and New Generation Church in Sidcup, England. I was a featured speaker for the last three days of this amazing, open air event. I was elated to pray with 31 people to receive Jesus!

LOOKING AHEAD

By the time you receive this, we will have been with Radiant Church in Kalamazoo, Michigan for their presbytery August 18th – 21st and to Kansas City for Equip Conference August 22nd – 23rd. After just a couple of days back home, we fly to Colorado Springs to be with Pastor Brady Boyd for New Life Church presbytery on August 25th – 28th.

We so appreciate your prayers and thank the Lord for a full schedule the rest of the year. [You can see where we’ll be by going to the schedule section of our website, www.waynedrain.com] I will send you another update toward the end of the year. June and I are ‘gobsmacked’ (as they say in England when they’re excited) about new opportunities the Lord is opening for us to minister! And we are very grateful for our friends who help us financially to make it possible.
