from Alan Marshall
It's been a while since I've written you. After 44 years of driving OTR, I'm about to retire. I've been driving school bus for the last 4 years so at the end of this school year I will be able to go and spread your fantastic CD'S all day if I want to.
Near my home in Motley, Mo. there is a truck stop called Bricks. If possible I would be grateful if you could send me CD's to be available to my trucker friends. They are always asking if I have any new ones. Blessings to you and your family, Alan Marshall.
Love you Alan, thanks for your prayers and support!!
God Bless you all, and remember Jesus Loves you and we do too! We'll talk at you Later......

Here is another seed, I'm planting into good ground. I made a vow of $1,000 to your ministry. I believe this is the 3rd seed. I need more than one miracle in my life so I'll keep on planting and wait patiently on God. He's faithful to His Word. God Bless, BullDawg
God bless you BullDawg we are praying for you and asking all those that read this to pray for my friend BullDawg. Love you brother keep on trucking and planting those Gospel Seeds (CD"S) everywhere you go. God hears the cries of our hearts. Hope to see you in Cumming, Ga May 19.

Sorry for not sending an offering sooner but we have hit some tough times and didn't want to ask for CD's without an offering. We have been out of CD's so please send us some. We had someone ask us at lunch just yesterday for some of your CD's. Please send some CD's ASAP. Please keep us in your prayers and thanks so much for this great ministry and the great CD's. Also could you send some CD's to a pastor friend of ours. We enclosed his Address: Sheldon & Judy
God bless you Sheldon & Judy you are in our prayers and we appreciate you so much for your love offering and your continued support and prayers for Lonesome Road. I have mailed you CD's and sent some to your Pastor friend, hope he will be blessed.
I just wanted you to know what a blessing your ministry has been to me. How it has encouraged me to want to do more for the Kingdom and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord through song.
I first heard the name Bill Schell on your CD'S and contacted him in hopes he could record some songs that the Lord had given me. The CD I have enclosed is the outcome. Bill is such a blessing and God has truly blessed him with so many talents. If you an use any of these songs in your ministry please feel free to do so. I just feel like if it wasn't for the Lord working through your ministry our CD may have never happened. I was a little hesitate to send it because I know you probablly get flooded with a lot of CD's, but while I was opening your last newsletter I prayed that the Lord, in your words would "give me a sign." Then I notice the WCBF Smokey Mountain Gospel CD and Logo. It looks like the cover on our CD with the same instruments. I promise I had never seen that before. To God be the Glory. Your brother in Christ, Rodney Beasley
Rodney we were blessed by it and couldn't wait to get your songs on a Lonesome Road CD. I used your songs on last Month's CD "Refocus." Welcome to the Family and we will see you at the 3 Fold Cord Conference where we will get you introduced to the whole Ministry Family. Folks you're gonna love The Beasley's !!!!
Hi Brother Gary,
I'm Angela Curtis from Wickliffe, KY...
I'd love to continue getting the CD's. Many members of my Church family enjoy them to. We share them when we're finished. Our Pastor has even played them in place of the regular Sermon. Thank you and Bless you for all you do!!! Angela Curtis
I love hearing from folks who are using the CD'S to impact others. And when I hear that Pastors are using our CD'S for their Sunday services it just inspires me to the utmost highest.
Letter from Jeff
Wow! Brother Gary, What a Blessing! I just got back from my West Michigan construction week and saw the box you sent that contained the special request "Living in a Broken World with Pastor Barry Steed."
Each of your CD's I find is a great instrument for selected target souls.
This particular one will draw the attention of the classic rocker/ aging baby boomer.
I distribute across the State of Michigan and as far North as Norther Minnesota to people who are mobile. Driving the Interstate whether truckers, vacationers, and those on the run.
This CD will plant fertile seeds. I am sending out a check on Monday to help your ministry and thank you for helping mine.
Our mission is to get the LOST Saved and Teach the FOUND! Always praying for your ministry.
One of our missionaries from Africa asked if there is a way to translate the messages into
Swahili. Here's a thought; James Payne singing in Swahili!
Be well my Brother! Jeff
Thank you so much for your generous donation and your help in spreading those Gospel Seeds (CD'S) all across Michigan and beyond. Working together we are making a difference to many souls across America and beyond to the uttermost parts of the world. James Payne has preached and sang all over the world and he may have already had his music and sermons translated into Swahili. James Payne Ministries supports missionary work in Africa, India, and several other parts of the world. James Payne Ministries also supports inner city ministries in some of America*s major cities.
I am sure he reads our newsletters and he will be here June 21 at our 3 Fold Cord conference so why don't you show up and you can meet James Payne and maybe he will sing us a song in Swahili. Want to know more about James Payne here is is website

Brother Gary, I was delighted as I always am when I saw The Lonesome Road envelope in our mailbox Monday. I knew it would be good and I was to attend our next local retired National Guard meeting Monday evening. I thought, "Oh boy, I can listen to it on the way up there and back. The first two tracks played well but the rest of it was a jumbled up mess. I was disappointed but the Lord said, "Ed, maybe that CD played like your giving......a jumbled up mess!" I know it is but my wife and I are finally coming out from under tons of debt and just maybe we have begun to see a little light at the end of the tunnel. Believe me, Lonesome Road Ministries is first on my list of donations. I love you guys and ladies and all that you do for us old truckers and all of us. I am still needing the CD's from Tony Mac, Tony Evans, James Payne, you and any of them that carry a strong message and testimonies. I would love to hear the one that was sent to me yesterday, James Payne's message on "Watering The Camels" When I listen to these CD's I give them to my only brother who is left on this earth so that he might receive a blessing. He loves these CD's. You men and women have a wonderful day and I will keep you all in my prayers.
Ed in Ga
P.S. I listened to that sermon by James Payne on your Podcast and it was and is truly a blessing. Have a wonderful day to all of you.
We are so sorry and I assure you we are working on the problem. We have had several calls from others who are experiences the same problems and we encourage all to give us a call, email or text if you are experiences any issues with listening to our CD'S. We will send out replacement CD's so that you can hear the message and pass them on to others. It takes all of us working together to keep this ministry working, thanks for your help!
