from Lyle Mc Gregor
Good Monday to you Gary, I received your package Saturday in the mail, thank you. My Pastor asked me Friday to do the church service next Sunday, he and his wife will be away because of a death in their family. After receiving your package I have decided to do it on the Old Linen Cabinet, and having the cards, CD's and testimonies from the other I can have them to hand out at the church service.
I wanted to share this with you too, I woke up early this morning remembering a dream I had a few years ago. In my dream I was walking through a wheat field, but there were no heads of wheat on the stems. I wondered what had happen to the wheat, when I moved the wheat stubble out of the way the ground was covered with the white color of wheat. When I woke up from my dream, I told the Lord I didn't understand what it meant. He told me that the harvest is ready, but there isn't enough workers. I remember the verses in Luke 10 about the harvest and the workers are few. Today I was reminded that the Harvest is more at hand today and there is a need as much to today as it was yesterday for workers for reaching the lost and hurting world.
Thank you Gary for all the work you are doing for the kingdom of God. Lyle Mc Gregor
Lyle, God bless you brother for coming to Lonesome Road Ministries and sharing your wonderful testimony with us and our listeners. God has given you this dream and has opened a door for you to share with your family, Church, friends and also all our listeners out there on that Ole Lonesome Road. We invite all those who want to be a part of what God is doing here at Lonesome Road Radio to come and share their testimonies. Call let’s Talk!!
Dear Brother Gary, I ran across one of your CDs in a truck stop probably 20 years ago and listened to it Many times. I'm not a trucker, but I do have a CD player in my car. I really appreciate the ministry that you have & hope that it can continue for years to come!
Thanks Chaplain Rayburn
It is a joy to help a little in this effort to reach truck drivers and all who listen to your “broadcast” of the Gospel! Thanks for the CD’s & podcast cards. Any suggestions on how I could distribute what you send? I don’t visit many truck stops. Jack
Jack, The CD’s & now the Podcast cards are a great tool to reach our family, friends & neighbors. Restaurants, laundromats, doctor offices, grocery stores, are just a few places to place a rack to give away the free CD’S & Podcast. I mail a podcast card out with all my bills. I leave a CD and a podcast card along with a generous tip at the restaurant after each meal. Just a few ideas! Any place you frequent is a great place!!!
from Wayne & Deb
Hello Gary, We enjoyed last month’s CD. God is so Good. A couple weeks ago we entered a valley. You learn the most about God and His steadfast love & care in the valley. My wife Deb was diagnosed with stage 4 colon
& rectal cancer, so she has had to give up her job and she is home. We have lost half our income, but we are trusting in God in this dark time to see us through. There is so many hurting people we know and you know. I think we become sensitive to hurting people when we are hurting. We become more sensitive to hurting and pain in the valley. Keep up your ministry God has given you and we are praying wisdom, health and financial blessings on you and the ministry. Please mention us to God in your prayers. We are praying for healing, financial blessings, wisdom on our finances. It’s amazing what you can trim out of your budget. LOL! Unimportant stuff! God bless Wayne & Deb Lucas
God bless you Wayne & Deb for your awesome heart for the Lord! Thank you for your years of prayer & support for Lonesome Road Ministries. You are in our prayers and I know all the prayer warriors will write your names in their prayer journals right now. I am praying for your complete healing and that you will have a testimony that will reach many over the country when God raises you up out of this valley.
I pray the Lord bless you 10 fold for your faithful giving all these years. I ask everyone who reads this to say a prayer for Wayne & Deb right now!
from Danny Atwood
Hello Gary. My name is Danny Atwood. I’m a local truck driver in Southern California and have been driving for almost 30 years. I’m also an ordained minister in the Assembly of God international church fellowship for 28 years. A friend was given one of your CD’s from an over the road trucker. It was amazing when he asked me to listen. I had been witnessing to him for a while. He was only too happy to share your CD with me to let me know what I was saying was right. But I must say. I’ve been listening to you as well on your show and have realized there’s more to being a pastor than just your church. I have an enormous mission field right in front of me and have to repent for not openly sharing Jesus with everyone and everywhere. I’ve squandered years of opportunities right in front of me. Please pray for me as I seek the Lord as to how to move forward in reaching those around me with the gospel. I ordered some music CDS and will be sharing with friends and coworkers who are truckers. Thank you for your ministry and may God abundantly bless your ministry. Your brother in Christ. Danny
Great to hear from you Danny, and I will get the music CDs in the mail along with some other CDs and witnessing tools to help you take your Church on the road. Excited about working together to reach your area.
from Chaplain Louis Bender
Gary, I received your Feb. CD and listened to it. I was glad that you kept saying that one had to surrender everything to the Lord. Even my Lord Jesus when in the garden had to give His will to the Father. So it is with a person, we have to say, dear Lord Jesus we do not want our way, but we must have thy way. That is why the Bible says that we must have the mind of Christ, as that is the only way into heaven. Chaplain Louis Bender–
Amen Chaplain Louie, Thank you for your continued support and your prayers for the ministry. We will see you in June it is going to be a great conference this year. Our 10th anniversary, who would have thunk it!
Dear Lonesome Road Ministries
It has been a while since I got CD’S from you folks to pass out. My health has not been up to par. I been wheelchair bound for about a year, but I still like to give out your CD’S when I go out to eat. I like putting a 2 dollar bill in the window of your CD’s and leaving them as a tip. I have added a list of my favorites and any music CD’s by Ann Davenport, She is the best!!!
Thanks Roger for the donation, CD’s are in the mail to you! You are in our prayers!!
Love you guys!!!
Dear Lonesome Road, It’s been a very long week for me. Trailer repairs, tractor repairs and troubles while unloading. A man stopped while I was unhooking my hoses in Rheems, PA last night and gave me your card. I was feeling hopeless and tired. I began listening this morning and began to cry and my heart feels full. Please thank that man from a tired driver. Michelle
Hello Michelle, God bless you and the driver who shared my card with you. Praying for you, we have sent you CDs and cards to listen and share with others on the road. Welcome to the family of Lonesome Road Ministries,
Dear Lonesome Road Ministries
I found your CD in the restroom in Virginia at a rest area, loved hearing your testimony and may God bless all that’s a part of your ministry. Darryl Johnson
Hey Darryl, we are praying for you and the Driver who left the CD for you. This one was for You!!!
from Danny & Claudine
Dear Brother Gary
Ever since my brother sent me the link to your radio programs. I and especially my mom has listened to you daily. You have been such a blessing to my mother and me. I have been a trucker for the past 48 Years. I have had some health issues and been out of work for a while and under doctors care but I expect to be back on the road again, hopefully next week. I hope to be busting down that ole Lonesome road listening to you and your partners, as well as working a lot on my singing. God is Great!!!! Amen & Amen… Danny
Danny & Claudine, Thank you so much for sharing your incredible testimony. I really enjoyed talking to your mother Claudine the other day. I have also talked with your brother David & his wife Linda and we are excited about what God is doing. David has sent me his music CD’s & Linda is working on her testimony to share with our ministry. We are excited about getting her and some of David’s songs on a Lonesome Road Program soon
