Jesus selected a rather unimpressive group of men as disciples, yet after being filled with the Spirit, they "turned the world upside down." During His ministry on earth, Jesus fed thousands with a child's meager lunch, and He viewed the widow's two small coins as a greater offering than all the other generous donations.
Lonesome Road Ministries has been housed in a building owned by Trinity Assembly of God Church in Carmi, IL. for the last 2 and a half years. It has been a great partnership and we want to thank Trinity for not only housing us but also helping us out and hosting the last couple 3 Fold Cord Conferences. Trinity has got to the point where they need to put this building on the market for sale and we are going to have to move. Sounds like bad news but I believe it is God pushing us out of the nest like a mother Eagle so that we can spread our wings and soar to new heights.
Lonesome Road Ministries begin in the basement of our home in October 2000 and God has used us over the last 20 years in a lot of different places. God has raised this Ministry up to be a world wide Ministry and I know with your help we can move this Ministry back to my home town of Wayne City, IL. to a new location. The picture above is the building for sale and it would be a perfect fit for our Ministry. This building has a price tag of $65,000 and the building is 36 x 62 and it sets on 1 acre ground.
So we only need 70 people who are willing to plant a 1,000 dollar seed or if God leads you to sow more that would be amazing! The first 25 people who God lays it on their hearts to sow a 1,000 dollar will help make the down payment and do a few improvements and get everything moved to get Lonesome Road Ministries back home. This will be a DOUBLE PORTION SEED!
I want to have a plaque made with each persons name who sows into this building and hang the plaques in the hall way that runs through the building. This will be Lonesome Roads "HALL OF FAME" and each day that I walk down that hall I will pray and ask God for A DOUBLE PORTION OF POWER AND PROSPERITY for each name that is on the hall of fame wall.
Thank you to each and everyone of you who have sown into this ministry. Also to all of you who give each month I want you to know with out your monthly support we couldn't reach all those folks all across America with the Gospel message. I just want you to know I love you and without you there is no Ministry.
In Genesis Chapter 26 Isaac sowed a seed in time of famine and reaped one hundred fold in that year. In the worst economic setting possible he got a maximum harvest because he sowed in faith. We are living in one of the most unstable times in America, but I believe God is wanting to raise up our ministry to new levels, levels like we have never seen or dreamed possible. Together we can stretch this net across America.
Acts 4:13 is one of my favorite verses in the Bible. It says now when they saw the boldness of Peter & John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and took knowledge of them that they had been with Jesus. I love this verse in the Bible, it gives all of us hope because no matter who we are God has more for each of us. The religious and highly educated were amazed when they saw these ordinary men (just fishermen) who God had transformed into (fishers of men). Each one of us who the Holy Spirit lives in has the boldness if we will just let go and let God use us. I'm ready for the next level , I can't wait to see where God is going to take us and use us. Here am I Lord send Me!!

Let me introduce myself. At least for those that don't know me. Bruce Phelps here, one that kinda sorta helps a handful of ministries like Lonesome Road in the digital arena. Things like newsletters and websites. And dabling with app building. Well actually I don't build any of these, I take something already there (like pre-built websites) and remodel it with pertinent content.
I was a 10th grade dropout, (thus the occasional misspelled words or poor grammar) before joining the service way back in 1973. Thank goodness for GOOGLE. There I got just a little more education. Oh but there is more... you can read my testimony at Voiceofbeliever.org.
We continue to apologize if you get duplicate emails from us. We don't intend to fill your email box. If you are getting more than one of these newsletters, just click unsubscribe to the extra one. Mean while may GOD bless you and your families during these troubled and epidemic times.
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.
