Romans 8:28 (KJV) And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
I remember reading my Bible one day and coming across this Scripture and the words The Called jumped off the page and God spoke to me and said that's you, you are The Called. God has something special, something unique for each and every one of us if will just reach out and grab it. Most of the time it requires us getting out of the boat, or getting out of our comfort zone. Many times it has us doing things we just aren't capable of doing but with God all things are possible. We just completed our 5th 3 Fold Cord Conference and God is expanding this 3 fold cord conference to go across America. God is wanting to stretch a net across America using the Trucking industry and the Churches that are willing to get outside of their walls to reach lost and hurting communities all across America. Last year we took our Conference to Loveland Colorado and this month Loveland Colorado is doing it's 2nd conference. Now we are getting ready to stretch out to other States as well.
We are talking to a Church in Florida about doing a Conference in January 2018 we will let you know as the details unfold. God is expanding Rig Ministries moving us to new levels. We had a great time at the ICGMA Awards show at the end of July, and Rig TV was really blessed to be nominated for TV Show of the year. the five finalist were The Music City Show, Rig TV, Texas Country Gospel, Larry's Country Diner and Ozark Tradition. The Winner was Larry's Country Diner! We were honored to just be mentioned with such great TV shows as these.
Then August 6 we traveled to Bellevue, Michigan to speak at the 1st Baptist Church of Bellevue. They had an outdoor service at the city park and I got to share my testimony and our vision for Rig Ministries. The folks of Bellevue Baptist has been duplicating the Rig CD'S along with a lot of other great ministries for years and passing them out in their communities and surrounding area. They are making a difference. Then at the end of August it was off to Texas to the Great American
Truck Show in Dallas where we teamed up with Channel 21 Ministries, Association of Christian Truckers, & The McKay Project to give away several thousand CD's and bibles to all those in attendance
On Sunday we traveled up to Hugo, Oklahoma to the Cowboy Crossing Church where the McKays done the music and Darrell Spicer of Channel 21 Ministries and myself got to share our testimonies and vision of how God wants all of us working together to reach the lost communities. Like a three fold cord when we tie ourselves together we strengthen ourselves and are able to do even more than we ever thought or dreamed possible. Just like the Bible says in Ephesians 3:20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work in us. The power is in us if we just ask God to use us He will!

The McKay Project from Columbus, MS has agreed to join us at any Church around the Country that would like to join with us in stretching this net across America to reach your lost family, friends & neighbors. Are you one of the Called? God is looking for people just like you who will say here am I Lord, Use Me! It's time we get out of the boat and Walk on water. Help us to cast this net across America!
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.
