Hi Gary, Thank you for listening to the story of my last 2 weeks, the virus lock down, mom's passing to the Lord, the birth of my 1st grandchild, and not working could make a movie. My dad will love the T-Shirt & the Lonesome road Vol#3 CD. I am proud to be a part of Lonesome Road Ministries work because as a driver I'm familiar with that Ole Lonesome Road. I've shared the CD'S with so many people plus thank you for my copy of Lonesome Road Vol#3. I will continue to support your Ministry. Robert Gedritis Jr.
God bless you Robert, we will continue to keep your family in our prayers. Thank you for your continued prayers & support. Without you and the many drivers out there on that Ole Lonesome Road continued support, we wouldn't be able to continue this ministry. Thank You!
Thanks for all you do for God's Ministries, I really enjoy the CD'S you send every month. I am giving you an address change so that I don't miss next month's CD.
I have also enclosed a donation for your ministry no need to send a box of CD'S I just enjoy the monthly ones, just want to bless your ministry. Keep me in your prayers as I will be praying for you and your ministry. Thanks a bunch for what you all do. Thank You! Thank You! Sincerely your brother in Christ, John
Hey John, Thanks so much for the generous donation, we will be praying for you, and I hope you enjoy our Lonesome Road Music CD'S I have sent you. Be Blessed Brother.
Please use this donation to send CD'S to people who continue to pass them out but can't afford to donate. Yours in Christ, Donnie & Dixie
Donnie & Dixie thank you so much for your continued support to Lonesome Road Ministries. You guys have been with me from the beginning of Lonesome Road Ministries in 2001 when Donnie preached that message A Picture of Hell. I plan on airing it on our radio programs in July. Your donation is being put to use in a box headed to Jeff & Shelby in East Texas. They will be spreading them out in Texas and Louisiana. Love you guys thanks for your prayers & support
Dear Gary Rayburn, I am a trucker and a born again Christian. The Lord has blessed me with a beautiful Christian woman to share my life with. I have been on the road for about 10 years now, we live in the great state of Tennessee. I remember pulling in a truck stop somewhere and on my way out I happened to look over and see some CD'S. I have picked up many a CD on the road but this one had your testimony and I just love the story you share how God gave you a sign "This One's for You." I am glad God placed you in the CD Ministry and the Lord has also placed me in the CD Ministry. I have enclosed one of my music CD'S for you to give a listen to. Maybe God wants us to work together. Feel free to use any of my songs in the Lonesome Road Ministry.
Thanks Brian check out next month's newsletter we are gonna be looking for songs!
Dear Chaplain Gary
I just wanted to thank you for sending more CD's. I enjoy them very much and look forward to leaving them in places for others to enjoy. I shared a couple of them with my family and they also enjoyed them. It feels good letting Jesus Lead the way. Perhaps, I can reach that point and let Jesus take full control. It is scary thing to do but it really shouldn't be. Free will is a tough area to let go of. It's hard, especially after listening to the Rose of Columbine. I am praying that I will be able to let go and let God have total control of my life. Thanks for your ministry Take care, Andrew
Andrew, Hey brother I am praying for you to do just that Let Go, and Let God have His way in your life. Thanks for all you do out on the road. Stay safe and we salute you and all the drivers who are doing a whole lot more than they think they are on the road.
Dear Brother Gary
Just a quick note to again tell you thanks for allowing me to be a part of your "Awesome Ministry."
Just want you to know how blessed & highly favored I feel to be on the Lonesome road Vol # 3 CD.
Please send me as many CD'S as you can, with the Lord's help I hope this will be the first of many monthly tithe checks. Since you guys are my In the Cab Church I am going to continue to bless you as you have blessed me. Love to all at Lonesome Road Ministries. Jim Scott
Love you Brother and I am proud to call you my new song writing partner. Along with Dennis McKay I think we came up with a good song to share with the drivers on that Ole Lonesome Road. Stay Safe out there on the front lines.
Dear Gary & everyone at Lonesome Road,
Got a nice testimony from Candy at the Stone Creek Truck Stop. She passed out some of the Lonesome Road CD's I left her to sample and the drivers loved them. They passed them on to other drivers and came back for more. I will be re-stocking her supply today. Thanks and God bless, Bob
Bob, I love to hear the good news about drivers listening and sharing them with Others! It is also great to hear about the Truck stop people getting involved. Keep up the good work brother.
Dear Chaplain Gary
On Thursday January 16, 2020 I heard a sermon that changed my life. I had always wanted to do great things for God. Then I heard on this CD, God doesn't want us to do great things for Him, He wants us to do impossible things. God wants me to do impossible things through Him! After hearing Dr. David Gibbs share the story about an African Pastor friend of his who asked God to give him something impossible to do everyday. I ask God for the same thing. I asked God to let me win one soul to Jesus every day. The pastor friend of Dr. Gibbs said that God hasn't missed a day in seven years. I Though WOW! If God could do the impossible for him, He could do it for me too. All I have to do is ask. So I did, God hasn't missed a day since He and I started January 16, 2020. To God be the glory!
Our Sunday school has gone from 75 to 104 as of last Sunday. Our worship service from 100 to 140, and we have baptized 10 and have 6 waiting for next Sunday. God is moving at Son Rise Church. All this in just a couple weeks I am looking forward to where God is taking us. brother Gary I will continue to pray for your ministry.
God bless Brother Steve Pickern
Pastor Steve, God bless you for such a powerful testimony for all of us. all we need to do is ask with a repentant and willing heart and God can do the impossible in our lives. Thank you for your support and your continued prayers.
Dear Lonesome Road we enjoy your CD'S so much hope this small donation helps your ministry. My husband and I use to be truckers and pass out your CD'S on the road. Now we are retired & still pass out the CD's to people we meet. Thank you for all the good blessings you distribute. In Christ Beverly & Larry in Florida
Love you guys and I appreciate you being a part of Lonesome Road. Together we are making a difference. Keep up the good work on your end and we will keep on doing our part here on our end.
Dear Gary & everyone at Lonesome Road,
It has been a while since I first wrote you requesting prayer for my husband & cousin. When I first wrote you I was seeking God and listening to your CD'S every morning, even the mornings that I was high on Meth I still listened to the CD'S as tears flowed down my cheeks. thank you for sending them to me. Gary I thank you for praying for me the morning I stopped you in front of the post office. I'd never been so lost in my life I was terrified. I stayed in the darkness a while longer after that day. But I kept on seeking God and March 2nd 2019, God set me free from Meth. Wow, I have a year clean, glory to God all mighty. My husband and my cousin are both following Jesus everyday also. What an amazing journey this has been I'm so excited to see where God is taking us in our future. God Bless you at Lonesome Road Ministries you are saving souls, thanks again Anna
God Bless You Anna you will continue to be in our prayers here at Lonesome Road Ministries. Keep listening to the CD's and keep following Jesus.
