August 19, 1957-May 30, 2016
Tony Mac was called home to the presence of our Lord and Savior on Memorial Day, 2016, from a sudden heart attack. Tony’s work was finished on Earth and it was time for him to rejoice in the home God prepared for him.
The gap left behind in Free in Christ Ministries is being filled with the many able men and women who have already been serving in the ministry. With Tony’s beloved wife Candy as its leader, FIC will continue the work which the two of them started. She will visit prisons, speak where she is led, and touch lives with her own unique ministry.
If you have a need or would like to contact Candy, you are encouraged to send her an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org

We are excited about what the Lord is doing here at Rig Ministries and the people God is sending here. We have events planned as you can see on the flyer but that's not all. We have The McKay's booked to be with us at the Mid America Truck show March 23,24,25 in 2017. Our booth will be in the West Wing. We have also booked the McKay Project for our June 2017 Three Fold Cord conference. Also we have booked Dan Duncan who you will hear on this month's cd along with Mike Manuel & James Payne. You don't want to miss the conference in 2017.
There is no limits to what God can do in your life when you make it all about helping others! God has opened some amazing doors for us here at Rig Ministries. This month's CD is from the Heart of the ICGMA (Country Gospel Music at It's Best.) I got the chance to interview some awesome people when I was at the awards show and I am excited about sharing this cd with you all. What I found was a bunch of Ordinary people that God was using in an extra ordinary way. God wants that for all of us if we will just cry out to Him and say here am I Lord, use me!
I love the story of Blind Bartimaeus found in Mark Chapter 10 Verses 46- 52. Seven verses that can speak so much into our lives. Blind Bartimaeus sat by the road begging but when he heard that Jesus was coming down the road he began to cry out to Jesus to have mercy on him. The people warned him and tried to discourage him but that didn't stop him he just cried out louder. Many time people even our friends try and discourage us from reaching out for more of Jesus. When Jesus heard him crying out to him He stopped and told His disciples to bring him over to Him. When they called the blind man, they said be of good cheer, Rise He is calling you. Bartimaeus threw his garment away, his beggar's coat. He knew that he would never need that coat that represented him as a beggar again. He came to Jesus expecting to receive! Jesus asked him, "what do you want me to do for you?" The blind man didn't ask for a few dollars he didn't ask for a meal he didn't even ask for a new coat. He ask for the impossible! The blind man said to Him, "Teacher, that I may receive my sight." Then Jesus said to him, "Go your way; your faith has made you well." And the bible says immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road.
God wants to do this for each and everyone of us who are willing to ask and follow Him. God has more for us than we could ever dream or imagine, He wants to use us to reach our family, friends, our neighbors but we have to throw off our garments that are holding us back from reaching our potential in Christ. I had a Chaplain for Channel 21 Ministries call me this week and He told me God had told him to call me. He then went on to tell me that God wants a children song written. I told Jerome that God wanted him to write the song not me. Too many times we want to pass off what God is calling us to do because we think we are not capable so we assume that we are to pass this on to someone who God has anointed. God is wanting to anoint each one of us to do the impossible. Phillipians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. God has something for each on of us to do if we will just cry out to Him and ask God to use us. He has a mountain of task for us to do, but we accomplish it one step at a time. God wants to raise each one of us to a new level each day, week, month, year. Take the limits off of God and watch what He can do in your life and ministry.
16:31 New King James Version (NKJV)
they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and
If you ever heard
Tony preach you heard this verse quoted, this was Tony's verse and he used it
on a daily basis. There wasn't a day went by that Tony wasn't witnessing
to someone. Tony was an awesome man of God and an awesome friend. Tony
will be missed by everyone who ever met him. Tony had one of the most
powerful testimonies and witness, he was an awesome presence in any room he
ever walked in. It didn't matter if it was in the Oklahoma prison
or the Oklahoma Senate meetings, which he was a guest chaplain many times
or if it was in a local restaurant where he might just stop in. Tony never
left a room without everyone knowing that he was a sold out believer in
the Lord Jesus Christ. Tony's testimony will continue to reach thousands of
people all across America as long as each one of us continue to pass the
CD's on to our family, friends, and neighbors. We have an important part
to play in reaching America with the Gospel. Our CD conference is a three
Fold Cord Conference and it's all about tying ministries together to reach more
people. The bible says one can put a thousand to flight but two can put
ten thousand to flight. It doesn't double each time we work together it
quantum leaps, we get ten times stronger each time we work together.
I know many of you that
are reading this wish you could have been at the conference this year and may
be wishing there was something you could do to help Free In Christ, Rig
Ministries, Channel 21 Ministries, Faith on the Move Ministries, J and A
Ministries and the many, many, many other Ministries that are tied
together through this CD ministry. The Ministries are too numerous to
mention. Together we are making a difference all across America. There is
not a day that goes by that we don't hear from someone who has listened to one
of our CD's and they call in to ask for prayer. There is not a week that goes
by that we don't get several calls form people that have given their life's to
Christ after listening to one of the testimony CD's from Rig Ministries.
So we just want to say thank you to each and every one of you who have
supported this ministry with your tithes and love offerings.
We have put together
8 CD's that cover the whole CD ministry conference and a very
special tribute DVD of Tony Mac that we played at this year's CD ministry
conference and we want to send them to all of our supporters as a very special
appreciation gift to you for your help in the ministry. So when you
send your monthly support check it will be mailed out to you as our
appreciation for your help in getting the gospel out into the highways and
hedges. (Luke 14:23) If you don't receive this very special package
please contact us and let us know. We want you to experience this year’s
conference and we want you to continue being a part of a ministry that is
impacting the whole world. We have heard from every state in America,
and over 30 countries around the world that has gotten one of our CDs
from many of you who are passing them on to others. So thank you very
much for all your help and support. and remember this; Jesus loves you and we
do too, and this is Chaplain Gary Rayburn and we will talk at you later...

Blessed & Highly Favored
Chaplain Gary Rayburn
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
When we read this verse it starts out as bad news but if we continue to read we reach the "Good News." Jesus say’s He has come that we might have life, but not only that but we might have life more abundantly! That’s “Good News.” Many people live their lives always looking at the bad news, but if we turn that bad news coin over we will find the "Good News." Which side of the coin are you looking at? If you live your life with a defeated attitude you will live a defeated life. But if you live your life expecting to receive good things from God you will receive all the blessings that God wants to give you. I know this is hard for some people to imagine, but you must come to the realization that God is so much bigger than anything you will ever face. We are children of the most high God, we are blessed and highly favored, we have royalty in our DNA we are children of the King. So why would you not live your life expecting Him to give you victory? God intends for you to be a champion, not a defeated person. If you claim victory and expect victory, you will get it along with a greater sense of power and peace! God wants you to live abundantly, so learn to expect His abundance.
Every time Satan throws a stumbling block at you just ask the Lord to turn it into a stepping stone. God wants to raise us up higher than we ever thought possible and He will use every stumbling block that is thrown at us as stepping stones, if we stay in faith and allow Him to work in our life.
No matter what has been taken away from you, no matter what you’ve lost or experienced in the past, if you give it over to God, He will return to you more than you could ask or imagine. He’ll make things right and give you more than what was lost or stolen. God wants to multiply your joy, peace, wisdom, health, finances. I'm praying for a double portion of His favor in every area of your life! The first step in moving forward into this fresh future is forgetting the disappointments of yesterday. It’s time shake it off, to turn loose those disappointments of your past and reach out in faith to God’s abundant future. No matter how painful the blows or distressing the situation may seem if we shake it off and put it under our feet we can use the adversities of life to raise us up to new levels. What seems like is going to bury us many times God uses to bless us. Stay positive and remember Romans 16:20 And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
Take the 30 day challenge, and for the next 30 days wake up in the morning saying “I am blessed and highly favored” and every time someone ask you how you’re doing? Just say, “I’m Blessed and Highly Favored” no matter what kind of day you’ re having. You will find out that you truly are Blessed & Highly Favored!

"From The Heart
James Payne & Mike Manuel in Concert at Rig Ministries at the 3 Fold Cord CD Conference June 2015...
Receiving In God is an evangelistic outreach. Our mission is to strengthen the Christian believer, reach out to the ones who are out of church for whatever reason, and to reach the lost, broken hearted, the depressed and confused souls in this area and all over the world. We plan to do this two fold. One way is with our upper room daily prayer & devotion service which runs M-F at 12:30. Everyone is welcome at the upper room please come and join us if you can. In 2014 we began a Thursday night service @ 7 Pm and a Sunday Night service @ 6 PM.
And the second way is through our cd ministry where we are reaching out all across America and now we are starting to reach out to different countries around the world. April of 2013 we went over the 1 million mark of free cd's given away. We send out free cd’s all over the country and in to all the World. So we invite you to write to us, e-mail us or give us a call we would love to send you a free cd’s for you to listen to and share with your family, friends, & neighbors.
