Talk about a day of defining!! I have been blessed & highly favored ever since that day that I cried out to Him, over 26 years ago. There has been so many defining days in my life since I took up my cross and started following Jesus. I could write a book.
I have shared my testimony and my story so many times over the last 26 years. We have sent out closing in on 3 million tapes & CD’S since God birthed this ministry in October 2000.
On October 19, 2020 God gave us a new home to house this ministry. We moved in October of last year to this our new home and completely remodeled this building. Bought and paid for by each and everyone of you who sent your love offerings in to help us continue this ministry to all those on that Ole Lonesome Road.
We opened this new Home to you in June with 3 days of praise & Worship. On June 26 2021 James Payne and all of you who were here dedicated this house to the Lord’s work. That was a defining Day in our Life. We not only dedicated this house for the work of the Lord that day we also raised enough money to buy a new CD printer, 2 new computers, 2 new duplicators to continue God’s work. A Day of Defining!!!
Don’t you just love it when God gives you those defining moments or days in your life when you can look back and see His hand at work in your life?
I can’t wait to see what God is going to do with this Ministry next?
Since our conference, which by the way we recorded the whole conference and made a 9 CD set for all those who ask for the conference CD’S, we have had several come in to give testimony. We plan on having a whole lot more folks coming through to give testimony and get it on CD so they can share with family friends, and neighbors.
This ministry has always been about testimonies. I believe your own personal testimony is the best sermon that you have. It’s a great way to witness to those around you. There are many times you run into someone for just a few minutes and you might not have time to share your testimony with them but if you have it on a CD you can hand it to them and send it with them and they can listen to it when it’s convenient for them. God has big plans for this ministry as you will hear on the podcast or CD A Day of Defining by James Payne.
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.
