A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a three fold cord is not easily broken.
We were expecting a huge crowd in Ocala, but the crowds were small. But that didn't stop God or God's people from giving their all. There were several divine appointments and testimonies coming out of the powerful weekend. We want to thank those who had the vision who wasn't afraid to step out in faith and travel hundreds of miles to join with us and those who had the vision to bring Rig Ministries 3 Fold Cord Conference to their area.
God spoke to Bill Schell and he shared this with everyone on Saturday that God said this weekend was all about the ministry of the unseen! What does that mean to us? It's the Ministry that happens after we leave. Bill spoke of when he first arrived all sorts of people walking up to him and asking him, how's Maddie? Everybody new the story of Maddie and Bill found out people all over the country were praying for his family. Bill shared this Scripture with us 1 Corinth 3:6-9 that says," I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but G od who gives the increase. Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor. For we are God*s fellow workers; you are God*s field, you are God*s building.
Reports are still coming in from the conference in Ocala, Florida. We have heard that there were at least 4 salvations and at least 10 rededication and still counting! God only knows how many and who they will reach! I'm looking forward to how and where God is going to use us next!

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.
