Isaiah 43:19 Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.
God is doing a new thing in our life and in the CD Ministry. The CD ministry you have come to know over the last 11 years as Receiving in God or Rig Ministries will be changing our name and location. Because of circumstances beyond our control we are forced to move the ministry to a new location and to change the name of the ministry. Where one door closes God has opened a brand new door for the ministry. We will be changing the name to Lonesome Road Ministries, which is what we were, when we first began back in 2001. A tape ministry in my home. God is making a way and supplying all our needs. He is making rivers in the deserts to sustain us in this transition. God has opened a door for us. Trinity Assembly of God has stepped out in faith to partner with us to reach lost and hurting souls right here in Carmi and all across North America with the trucking ministry. Trinity is providing us with our own facility 197 Haley Drive here in Carmi to operate the CD Ministry. Linda and I will be moving our Church membership and becoming a part of our new Church family. We need your prayers, I now have no insurance for my wife Linda and we have lost the Company truck that we were furnished with to do ministry with for the last 11 years. Please pray that God will provide us with a new truck to drive and health insurance for Linda. So we can take this ministry up to new levels.
God has called me to do a media ministry to the lost and hurting souls all over this Country and around the world. It started out as a tape ministry then a CD ministry and it has evolved into several radio programs and even a TV program. We are not backing up but moving forward into new territory, A new level in our life and the life of this ministry, that God birthed in me in October 2000. It began as Lonesome Road Ministry and it is returning to the original name Lonesome Road Ministries. We have many Ministries and many folks who depend on this ministry to help them and their families and we will not quit. There is no place to quit when you sign up to be a soldier for Christ! I am very thankful to all who have supported Rig Ministries over the last 11 years. We now need your help and support more than ever as we step over into new territory as Lonesome Road Ministries. We are in the process of getting a 501C through the help of Darrell Spicer and Channel 21 Ministries. We plan to continue to partner with as many Ministries and Churches. To reach as many lost and hurting souls who need Jesus.

The 3 Fold Cord Conference will be moving to September 28,29, 30. We have a new location this year, Trinity Assembly of God will be our new host. The Church is located @ 1600 Saunders ave, Carmi,IL. Just off Hwy 14 on the West side of Carmi. I apologize to those who have set their vacations around our conference. This transition will take several month's. As we get things in place here at Lonesome Road Ministries we will continue as Rig Ministries, so the checks you send in to Rig Ministries will still go to the CD Ministry. We will continue mailing out the CD's in the Rig Ministries envelopes until we get our bulk mailing permit in place for Lonesome Road Ministries.
We thank you all for your continued prayers and support as we transition into this new phase of our ministry. God bless you all and remember Jesus Loves you and we here at Lonesome Road Ministries we love you too! This is Chaplain Gary Rayburn and we will talk at you later!

I logged over 4 million miles as a truck driver from 1972 - 2007 and I have written a lot of it in my songs. God has taken me off the road and put me into full time ministry, but I still have a heart for all you drivers out there.
