???   How can I become a part of Rig Ministries



Tony Mac
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:

Acts 16:31  New King James Version (NKJV)

 So they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household


 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

John 10:10

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!

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


We passed the One Million mark of Cd's given away here at Rig Ministries.  Thanks to all who have helped make this possible with your donations and love offerings.  God bless you all in 2016!

Bob Wilson talks about Fracking in Illinois

 Bob Wilson of Rig Ministries, and CEO of Les Wilson Inc. recently spoke to the Kiwanis here in Carmi about the upcoming fracking that so many are interested in here in Illinois.  Bob will also be one of the guest speakers at the Kingdom Congress Conference on October 12 at the Fires of Revival Church located in Benton IL at 902 S. McLeansboro Street.  Bob will be speaking on “The Art of Fracking.” 

Bob Wilson has been in the oil industry all his life, he started out talking about his grandfather and how he began working in the oilfield at the age of 15.  He hauled nitroglycerine with a team of horses to oilfield sites.  The nitro was packed into the holes and ignited to open up formations.  Oil men hoped to get oil, but sometimes they got water.  There was no exact science.  This was really the beginning of fracking and the process has continued over the years. Bob’s grandfather Leslie F. Wilson went on to start his own company in the oil field in 1940 and is the founder of Les Wilson drilling.  Today we have become more modern and now we use big pumps which includes pumping water and non-harmful chemicals along with sand at high rate of speed with hopes of opening up formations. 

Les Wilson Inc. recently drilled the vertical project for Strata X off Route 50 in Xenia,IL. And Strata X has a permit to frack at the end of October.  This will be the gauge on what might happen here in Southern Illinois.  Bob went on to explain that if they do hit oil through horizontal fracking, one pad can hold as many as eight wells 20 feet apart, once they know where they are going.  These types of setups are called walking rigs.  Bob told the Kiwanas club that there are several contractors right here in Southern Illinois who can take care of the needs. 

Right now, vertical drilling in White County goes down about 4,000 feet deep.  The new type of fracking will go deeper to about 8,000 feet.  Once they reach the location they desire, they will go out horizontally 5,000 to 6000 feet and the technology today can keep a bit on the drill within  one or two feet inside the pay zone.   

The fracking projects are pricy, with the horizontal drills topping 1 million dollars.  A vertical price tag runs about 150,000 dollars. 

Bob said if fracking were to happen in this area with success, it would bring jobs in.  However, he said his company is not investing in what might happen.  They will react when it happens.

This town has been through several oil booms, said Mr. Wilson. “I really hope something does happen here.  They can do all the science they can, but until they actually drill it, we won’t know.”

Bob noted that many regulations are in place for those working on the rigs, including mandated clothing, which requires FR jeans and shirts.  The jeans have to be worn along with the long sleeve shirts, which is a OSHA rule.  The clothing rule has been over turned in several states, but is still on the books in Illinois.

Mr. Wilson concluded by explaining there are all kinds of formations, and companies right now are just exploring.  He did note that things are looking very promising for all who are involved in the oil industry at this time.
