THE NEXT LEVEL
Isaiah 48:17 This is what the Lord says--- your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along the paths you should follow.
God is so awesome, He is leading us the way that we should go and It looks like we will be closing on the Church, in the middle of October. We have received many donations from so many of you. People have given from the abundance of their hearts. I want to thank all of you for sending in your love offerings.
I have heard from lots of folks who are planning on sending in a donation for the Church building and now is the time to get it sent in. Little is much when God is in it! Please pray about it and send in whatever God tells you to send in no amount is too large or too small.
We believe God is going to pay it off in full without borrowing any money. We have a lot of work to do to get this Church ready for our conference in 2021. We know God is going to supply all our needs. We are going to need carpet and a whole lot of paint throughout the building. A Church in Rocky Mt. North Carolina is donating 100 Chairs and a PA system. I announced that on the Chaplains Conference line recently and I had one of the Chaplains call me and told me God had laid it on their hearts (Him and His wife) to rent a U Haul truck and go to North Carolina and pick up the Chairs and PA system and deliver them to us at our Church in Keenes, IL.
I praise God for each and everyone of you who are a part of this ministry and now a part of this Church on the Road! The Lord, the Holy One of Israel, who rescued His people from Egypt, is the same Almighty God who graciously redeemed us from our sins. For me it was August 13, 1995 on I-39 that God came to me and lifted me up out of the miry clay and set my feet upon the Rock and established my going. The Lord has been leading me ever since, bringing me up to new heights and new levels. So Lord I pray that you will continue to lead me, guide me and teach me the ways that you would have me to go for the benefit of those out on that Ole Lonesome Road. Lord help me to achieve what it is you would have us do with this Church on the Road. Thank you for sending me the help I need! I pray this next level will set us up to make a difference to families across this Country for generations to come.
Hey I've been thinking... can you do some sort of promo to get the lady truckers to submit their testimonies, struggles on the road, etc... email to me, Jesshortonmusic@gmail.com and let me choose stories or parts of different stories to write songs off of for the next project? I just want to be relevant. I know these women want to feel seen and heard. Jessica Horton Music

Our Spotlight this month falls on Chaplains Marshall & Marion Wright.
Chaplain Marshall gave his life to Christ on a Coast Guard Cutter in 1982 in the Bering Sea of Alaska. Through faith and standing on the promises of God, he went from a Mess Cook to a C-130 Pilot in the United States Coast Guard (USCG). Marshall is now a pilot for Southwest Airlines and has always had a love for Trucking and also has his CDL and owns a Semi he purchased to use just for ministry. You can hear his testimony on our CD/Podcast "Raking Leaves" contact us and we will send you a copy.
Marion also has her CDL and together they have an awesome trucking Ministry called Power of God Trucking Ministries and you can check out their ministry on their website pgtmin.org,
Both Chaplains Marshall and Marion have served in ministry in numerous capacities that they have been called to. They are both ordained ministers and very active in their home Church in various ministries. However, God placed the trucking ministry on their hearts many years ago, so they are thankful and elated to now serve in the Truck Chaplain ministry in addition to their other ministry assignments. They are board members of Channel 21 as well as running our Chaplain conference line every Monday night.
So Marshall & Marion Wright we Salute you and thank you for all your hard work you do for Lonesome Road/ Channel 21 Ministries.
God Bless, 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.
