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!
I am a truck driver and I Came across your cds today in Neogio, Illinois. Love listening to them. There was a song Turn another stone. Where can I get it? My wife and I are enjoying the cds I got. We are a work in progress. We are searching for a better life, and we know it's with the Lord. Just wanted to thank all of you for the sharing of your lives then and now.
www.jamespayneministries.com and you can find all of James Payne's great music. Turn another stone is off his CD "Love Always leaves a Mark"
I've been asking God to give me a truck. I love trucking and I wanted to own my own truck and of course that'll make you nervous cause I said I was coming out of debt. I am almost out of debt except for my house but I'm chipping away at the debt and God has supersized my prayer he made me a 50/50 partner in a truck. No truck payment the owner of the company I drive for we split everything 50/50. So God actually gave me a truck and on the job training to learn to be an owner operator.
It all started with your CD Ministry. The CD player in this truck doesn't work but God covered that by supplying a DVD tv in the truck. So I finally got to watch my first DVD from you. It's your testimony and you know what? I got to see the passion of your story not just hear it. You just keep getting better and better.
Thank you, Damon
Damon you are a blessing to Lonesome Road Ministries and I love your testimony of how God is using you out on that Ole Lonesome Road.
I want to share an experience with the readers. A few days ago I received a call while driving on the east coast. The caller was very convincing and told me my wife had been kidnapped and would be killed if I did not cooperate. I was told to get all my money out of my bank account and turn it into cash then send it to the addresses they provided me in Mexico using western Union and Money grams. I was told if I lost my phone connection my wife would be hurt or killed. For 5 hours, I trudged through this city that I was not familiar with doing exactly as I was told fearing If I did not, my wife would be hurt or killed. The entire time I was secretly calling out to Jesus to guide me and help me stay calm. I walked more than I ever thought possible but the whole time my thoughts were on what Jesus had done for us.
At the end of this ordeal , these people told me they had released my wife because I had done what they told me too. When I was finally able to reach my wife I found that this had all been a phone scam and my family and I was out 3,000 dollars. I may get some of that back (Investigation is in progress.)
Here is the beauty of it all. The scammers called me the next day trying to threaten me again because they only received 1/2 of the 3 thousand that I wired to them. I calmly gave them God's blessings and told them that I would pray that they would find God because what they were doing to people is a terrible thing. I then hung up without waiting for a response. Before I found God on Jan 22, 2016 while listening to a CD of yours called Free In Christ by Tony Mac McMullen I would have cursed them and wished the terrible things to happen to them. I am so thankful to Jesus for answering my prayer that day for protection and guidance. God has given me peace in my heart and mind. God has given me a new joy in my heart for my family. I would like to thank the McMullen family for keeping Tony Mac's testimony going across the Country. God Bless, Jason in Terre Haute, IN.
Wow! Brother what a powerful testimony to hear! So many phone scams and internet scams going on out there that is one I haven't heard. I know it will help all those on our mailing list and make them aware of the many ways Satan come to kill, steal and destroy, but when we have Jesus with us He will give us life and life more abundantly. Thank you also for your generous donation you sent with the letter. Love you brother..
I am sending you a small donation, hope this little bit helps keep the CD's moving. I am looking forward to getting my CD's so I can help out. I have a box here at a local restaurant and I also like to take them to the truck stop out on the Interstate and hand them out to the drivers and witness to them one on one.
God bless and have a "Great" 2019. your brother in Christ Elmer Cotton
Elmer So proud to have you on the team brother. We go way back to when you was driving and had your tape ministry to the truckers on the road. Our good friend Ray Sisk got us hooked up together way back when we were both doing tape ministries. I thank God for men like you and our mentor Ray Sisk. Thanks for your help and support. Together we are making a difference all across America and into the uttermost parts of the World. God bless you Elmer we are praying for you today.
Here is a little something for the ministry. I'm still good on CD'S at this time. I just wanted to send a donation to help fund the work that you all are doing. Keep up the good work and I will let you know when I need more CD's.
God Bless, Bruce & Nan Richards

God bless you and thank you so much for all your help and support over the years. Love you guys and look forward to seeing you again soon. Hope you make it to our conference June 21,22,23. This year I am sure will be the best conference we have ever had, so don't miss it!!!
Dear Lonesome Road Ministries
Thank you & God so much for your ministry. I hope & pray someday I can be in service with you all. We use to come and visit once in a while before my accident and now my husband has cancer.
I really like James Payne, I love hearing his new songs. I love worshipping God in Song. I sent some of my Cd's to Louisiana with a truck driver. I am sending you a donation I know it isn't much but I wanted to give a little to help your ministry.
Yours in Christ Bev, (Robert Murphy's Sister)
Thank you so much for your donation. We will be praying for you and your husband. Praying that you can make it down here in June 21,22,23 for our 3 Fold Cord Conference. James Payne will be with us June 22, 23 so try and make it so you can meet James, he would love it and so would everyone else here at Trinity!
Greetings to you and yours. I would like to thank you for all you do for Christ. I have probably handed out 7 or 8 thousand of the CD'S you furnished at NO charge. I retired from driving 4 years ago and after 50 plus years I really don't miss it. I do however miss the fellowship with my fellow drivers. But to the point, here is a portion of a small insurance payment on my 36 year old "baby girl." No better place to put it but in God's work.
Just keep on keeping on, James Arey
I am blown away by your generous donation and I knew I had been sending you CD's for several years and so much appreciate your prayers and support over the years. 7- 8 Thousand CD's that you have passed out. Wow! There is no telling how many people we have reached because of your efforts. Proud to be in partnership with you brother and yes we will both keep on keeping on for Jesus!
Hi! Hope all is well with you. I see you are back to Lonesome Road. Full Circle. Quite the plan God has!
We are sending a gift for your ministry. I can always use more CD'S to give out. Some go to a friend that drives truck and he gives them out up here too.
Thank you for all you do, and may God continue to bless you as you do His work! Amen brother Gary!
sincerely Michael & Jayne Thiel

I appreciate your help and support in our ministry and yes you guys have been with us since the beginning way back when we first started as Lonesome Road in October of 2000. Thank you so much for all you are doing up there in Wisconsin spreading the Gospel, you are a blessing to Lonesome Road and many others!
We are so honored to support and work with Lonesome Road Ministries. They truly are "boots on the ground" and a "church without walls". We are always amazed at the incredible life changing stories that happen because of this ministry. I know we shouldn't be amazed when God moves because that is who He is, but it is so much fun to get excited when God loves on people and lives are changed! That happens through Lonesome Road Ministries on a daily basis!
