This is the Truth Network. Everybody out there. But maybe he has changed a lot of lives, but the Christian Garden Show has changed Robbie Dilmore's life. And it could hardly get any better, but as his mom, I'm going to tell you, he's getting better and better. I love you all over there.

Bye. Surrounded today by a great cloud of martyr moms. Surrounded by a great cloud of martyr moms today on the Christian Car Guys show. And what's your mom's faith story? We would love to hear it today.

It's a live show. We need to hear from you. 866-348-7884. And so as you listen to that intro, that's Meghan Trainor with her mom song. But then you heard my mom, actually, Marge Givitz.

And that was actually in our 2016, it was our 10th anniversary show. My mother, it was the last time she ever called into the show. She used to call in really regularly. And she went to be with the Lord about two weeks. She was on morphine when she made that call.

But you'll hear that whole call here at some point in the show today. But that was my mom in 2016. She went to be with the Lord, like I said, a few weeks after that. And the idea of that is all moms suffer. That's the way it happened after Eve sinned, that they would certainly suffer in childbirth, but that was just the beginning of birth pains.

As all moms know, the older their kids get, I've heard it said, and it could not be said better or hardly, that little kids, little problems, big kids, big problems. And you can imagine how Sarah Feld or Rachel or Hannah or some of those great moms of the Bible. So we're going to talk about this great cloud of martyr moms when we get here in a minute. But this is Jesus' Labor Love Week, which just is perfect because it's always been a ministry to single moms and widows and families in crisis. And certainly it has a lot to do with suffering. And the Lord has blessed us, right, to be the middleman, right, Scott, where folks like you listening have donated to the Jesus' Labor Love or donated cars or money or prayers and or and all of the above. And then we get a chance to help steward that towards single moms and widows. So we'll probably have some calls in today from them as well.

We'll look forward to that. And so, as you might guess, today's show is brought to you by Hebrew Letter. Are you shocked, Scott? Not at all.

I bet Nick's not shocked either. So today's show is brought to you by the Hebrew letter Mem. That sounds like mom, doesn't it?

Sure does. Well, you may know this, that the letter Aleph Bet means father, Abba, right? But when you put an Aleph and a Mem together, you get mother.

I don't know if you knew that. And actually, very cool, if you take a Resh and a Het and a Lamed, that spells Rachel. And if you take a Resh and a Het and a Bet, you get Rahab.

But if you take a Resh and a Bet and a Mem, you get Raham, which means mercy. And I don't know, you know, I've always heard it said, I love this too, that if you're a young boy and you want to go jump off the roof, you don't go ask your mom. No. You go ask dad.

But after you jump off the roof and break your leg, you don't call and say, dad. No. No, your mom. Your mom.

Right? Because that's the picture of the feminine heart of God, which is all about mercy, which is all about that Raham. And so Rachel is a picture of that, and certainly Rahab is a picture of that. And so interestingly, if you go to this morning, not only will you find all the stuff on Jesus, Labor, and Love, but I have a picture there of a Scottish mom and her mother and her grandmother and her great-grandmother and her great-great-grandmother. In other words, there's six generations of folks there. And I don't know if you've thought about it, but you have a mom.

And again, tomorrow I hope you have a chance to honor her in a big way. But you also have a great-grandmother and a great-great-grandmother, and on it goes all the way to Eve. And guess what?

They're still around. And there are this great big cloud up there of witnesses. And they all suffered, and they continue to suffer. And if you look in Jeremiah 31 or in Matthew 2, you're going to find that Rachel is still weeping over their children that are not. It says it.

You know, sound is heard on high. It's Rachel weeping for her children. Her tomb still sits right where it always did, between Bethlehem and Jerusalem. Interestingly, in the area of Benjamin, which is where that child was born, when she passed away, and unlike the other seven matriarchs and patriarchs, she's the one that has a place right there on the road where people stop and pray, because of that whole prophecy. And there's some amazing stuff about that and suffering that I would love to get into at some point in the show.

But I want to read something about your moms here. And it's written in Hebrews, the book of Hebrews, chapter 11. That's the Hall of Faith. But I know he's talking about several people here, but believe me, your moms in this group, it says they were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were tempted, slain with a sword, they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, tormented, of whom the world was not worthy.

They wandered in deserts and mountains, in dens and caves on earth. And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise. What?

Right? And that word testimony, by the way, or witness, is the word martyr in Greek. I don't know if you knew that, but that's a neat fact to know, okay? So they all were martyred, just like anybody who has a testimony, so you don't know it, but you've got a testimony, I'll bet you anything you're a martyr. So God having provided, verse 40, God having provided something better for us, listen to this, God having made provided something better for us that they should not be made perfect apart from us.

Are you hearing that? In other words, as you hear the story of Rachel's faith, or you hear the story of Sarah's faith, or if you hear the story of Hannah's faith, and it somehow increases your faith, they're being made perfect through their suffering even to this very moment. And not apart from you, you're still part of the deal, you still get to do that. So in case you're wondering why I read that, it's because it is the setup for chapter 12, verse 1. That's when it comes and says, because at the beginning it says, Wherefore, in other words, therefore, this is all based on what I just said. So, therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, again the word martyr, let us lay aside every weight and sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and he sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. The Benjamin itself, okay?

The real one. And so with all that said, think about it. Think about how your mom's story has encouraged your faith.

My mom's story is absolutely remarkable, and you're going to hear a little bit more about it when we come back, because I've got a sound bite that I want you to hear both my mom's voice before she was on morphine, and after, and then my grandmother's. But each of them have a story of suffering, and their suffering, as you think about it, encouraged your faith. And faith in what? God's faithfulness.

Like, God is faithful. No matter what, he's right there with you, he's walking his way through it, and as they're doing that, guess what? Their faith is being made perfect in your faith, and so it will be with your children and your grandchildren and your great-great-grandchildren. If they're in Christ, then you will still, your story, as long as it exists, continues to be part of their story.

That is why it is so absolutely critical that your family knows your witness. Do not be ashamed of what you've suffered for Christ. Do not be ashamed of what you were allowed to go through in order to come to Christ. The shame that you took on, maybe all self-inflicted, but nonetheless, God was faithful, and he's the hero of the story. And as you share that, and again, if you can write it down, if you can put it in tape like my mother and my grandmother did, as you'll hear shortly, then, wow, it encourages people for generations and generations and generations. It's an amazing thing that we all have this thing.

I don't know if you see this. By your testimony, you are an overcomer. Well, by your testimony, as you're suffering, right, it's going to go on and on and on and on, because there's a long eternity that's still ahead of us, and there's still an eternity behind us. The cool thing is all those people that led up to your eternity are increasing what's going to happen to the eternity that are all in their own way, right? A picture of Christ. And so, when you think about all that, and your mom, or your grandmom, or you know the story of their faith, 866-348-7884, 866-34-TRUTH, we'll be right back with so much more Mom, the Cloud of Witnesses.

You're listening to The Truth Network and Everybody out there, but maybe he has changed a lot of lives, but the Christian God show has changed Robbie Dilmore's life. And it could hardly get any better, but as his mom, I'm going to tell you, he's getting better and better. I love you all over there.

Bye. You might have a mom, she might be a mom, but ain't nobody got a mom like that. Line her up till the end. Surrounded by a great cloud of martyr moms today, or moms with a witness. And what's, you know, those faith stories of your mom undoubtedly affect all of our faith. And that's what we're talking about today. We would love to hear your story, your mom's story.

866-348-7884, 866-34-TRUTH. And so you might imagine, as my mom, I put her through a lot of stuff. Oh my goodness. You know, all those nights, I can't imagine her worrying about some of the shenanigans that I got myself into and, you know, all these different things. So anyway, when I started, I got to tell you that my mom was the biggest fan ever of the Christian Car Guy show, and she called into the show quite often, but I could absolutely count on the fact that she would call me after the show, and she would review it, and she was a Latin major in college.

Really? And so quite brilliant, and she would tell me all the words that I said whatever way, and she would tell me how many times I said, you know, you said the word you know 47 times in that show, right? Because she loved me, but anyway, I have a sound bite here that's going to take a couple minutes, but it is my mom calling into a show back in like 2010, and we used to have a guy who came on all the time. He's going to be with the Lord, too. His name was Dr.

Sunny, and he was a delight, and he and my mom used to cut up all the time. So you'll hear him, you'll hear my mom talk about her idea of what a Christian should do as far as their car, which is absolutely beautiful. And then my grandmother is going to talk about her mother, which is my great grandmother, and a little bit about their marriage.

And so the point is that we all stand on the shoulder of all this cloud of witnesses that have spoken in our lives, suffered unmeasurably, really, on account of us for a lot of different ways, and God orchestrated all that to give us a picture of what Jesus did ultimately for us. So within that, Nick, go ahead and play this. Wow, we have a very special caller. We have my mom. Oh, mom! And she's got a story about tires, so we've got to hear that.

Mom, you're on the Christian Car Guys show. What you got for us? Good morning. Good morning. And good morning, Dr. Sunny. Good morning, mom. I always like hearing your voice. You have some great stories, and you tell it like it is.

I guess with a boy like Robbie, you've got to. I think one of the worst feelings in the world as you're driving down the road is that thump, thump, thump of a flat tire. And I believe that the Christian life is supported by four tires, and when you don't have them all inflated and taken care of, your life is out of queue, out of balance. Yes.

And they are prayer, reading your Bible, Bible study with a group, and worship. Wow. And my spare tire is service in the name of the Lord.

And right now we have my mom live from Illinois. I'm not sure how live I am. I just had a terrible example for all you young people out there of trying to work a telephone and a computer all at one time when you're on morphine. I want to tell you, I could not find your statement.

I could not find it. Well, anyhow, I just wanted to say that everybody out there, that maybe he has changed a lot of lives, but the Christian God show has changed Robbie Dilmore's life. And it could hardly get any better, but as his mom, I'm going to tell you, he's getting better and better. I love you all over there. Bye.

Bye. Lawrence Elizabeth Rippon Bacon on October 3, 1990, early in my 88th year. My mother was Clara, as I have told you, and there was Frank and Clara and two little ones, Georgie and Belle, who died either in infancy or very young, and then Minnie and John and Fred. So both of them apparently had seen each other over the years and knew each other a long time before they finally married on December 28, 1894.

She was 24 and he was 26, and he soon started his first practice of medicine in Middle Grove, New York, which was right close to Saratoga Springs, the big racing capital and big resort area in New York State. Yeah, so I find that absolutely fascinating that I have that sound bite. It's an absolute treasure because I don't know if you ever thought about this, but when you hear your grandmother's voice, even though you haven't heard it, she died shortly after that recording was made. And so I haven't heard her voice coming from her since 1990, but you'd recognize it in a second when you hear it. And certainly I recognize my mom's voice, and so just think how cool it is that they're all absolutely there and their faith is still being made perfect. All that's put together into the whole package of what you are and what I am as we get a chance to live this out. And so what does that rise up in you?

I would just love to hear your story about your mom, your grandmother, whatever it is, 866-348-7884 is the number to call in and share, 866-34-TRUTH. And you know, when you think about what's going on with Rachel to this day, right, the Jews teach very clearly, by the way, and it would have been known by Matthew when he wrote in Matthew of voices heard on high, Rachel's weeping for her children, but they are no more. When he wrote that, he was quoting Jeremiah 31, and you'll find that in Jeremiah 31, God answers Rachel's prayer, and it's explained that they will be returned to their borders and their borders will be at peace. Well, if you think about this, Rachel hadn't been alive, you know, for like 1,500 years or something like that by the time Jeremiah said that, and by the time Matthew said it, it was more like 3,000, right?

And to this day, Israel certainly does not have peace. I'm sure you see that. And so she is still weeping for her children, she's still praying, she's still suffering because, guess what, we're all being made because you're grafted in, and so you're part of that as well. Thus it tells us that, wow, all our mothers and grandmothers, they're still there, their voices can still be heard on high, and someday soon, right?

So what's yours, 866-348-7884? We'll be right back. You're listening to the Truth Network and Everybody out there, but maybe he has changed a lot of lives, but the Christian Garden Show has changed Robbie Dilmer's life, and it could hardly get any better, but as his mom, I'm going to tell you, he's getting better and better. I love you all over there.

Bye. You might have a mom, she might be a mom, but ain't nobody got a mom like mine. Surrounded by a great cloud of martyr moms today on the Christian Car Guy Show, and it's also the Jesus Labor Love Weekend, and so we've got Scott here as we're talking about ministry to single moms, widows, and families in crisis. One of the honors that we have here is to steward that for the Christian Car Guy Show. And so along those lines, we've got Wendy is calling in.

Wendy, you're on the Christian Car Guy Show. Good morning. Good morning, Wendy.

Good morning, everyone. How are you? I am wonderful.

I am absolutely wonderful. What have you got for us? I just want to call and say how thankful I am for you guys. I have a car that is just on its last legs.

I was looking through my text to find the number to call you this morning, and I was like, man, there are so many texts. I have bugged them a lot because my car just keeps having issues, keeps breaking, and so today through the ministry, y'all have helped me get a starter for my car. It needs a starter replaced, and I'm grateful. I wanted to say thank you for that, and I'm also in prayer for somebody to install that starter, for somebody who has the know-how and the capability to put that into my car. I'm a single mom, live in Cary, have a son who's 15, and just grateful for the ministry y'all have done and the ways y'all have helped us get from point A to point B. Well, Wendy, let's just pray for that right now.

There might be somebody in Cary, who knows, but God knows. So, Lord, thank you, thank you, thank you for Wendy, and I have always appreciated her heart of gratefulness and your faithfulness to her in so many different ways, and, Lord, she's got a starter, but now she needs somebody to put it in there in Cary, and, Lord, you provide it in so many ways, and we know that you're going to do it again. You always do, and we know that her children will have quite a story of faithfulness as even maybe you provide one of these cars that have been donated to her. Lord, you have it all in your hands, and we thank you. We know you're going to meet the need, and I pray that you put it on somebody's heart to help. In Jesus' name I pray.

Amen. Well, Robby, I know that you're a car guy. Are you familiar with a Cobalt and where the starter is on it? No. No. If I'm not being completely transparent.

Probably somewhere hard to get to. Well, remind me, I apologize, but right off the top of my head, I'm trying to remember what a Cobalt, who makes Cobalt? It's a little Chrysler and a little Dodge or something. It's a Dodge, yep, sure is. It's a Caliber then. Caliber, not a Cobalt. I'm sorry. All right. So I am extremely familiar with the Dodge Caliber, extremely familiar with the Dodge Caliber. Not a Cobalt, but anyway, that's okay.

Sorry about that, Wendy. So it's just a front-wheel drive car. It's really not a hard one. Oh, good. Not particularly.

It's a four-cylinder and so a lot of room in there to get in there and change that for somebody who's familiar with it. It shouldn't be too big a task. But, boy, when it doesn't work, there is nothing more frustrating than the car won't start, right, Wendy? Like, man. It's true. It's so true. Like, that is just really, really difficult. I feel so helpless. We'll just see if we can't figure out how God's going to meet that need for you, Wendy.

And, again, we're still waiting on some cars to be repaired that we're hoping might fit the bill for you as well. But I appreciate you. And so how about your own mom, Wendy?

Any stories there? My mom is such a faithful believer, you guys. She's been such a blessing even now. Like, when I was a child, she was a blessing. She already knew the Lord when I was born. She actually is the one who brought me to Christ when I was about four or five years old. I'm very grateful to her.

I did not have to spend years and years seeking God, trying to figure it all out. She explained it to me when I was very little. And now she's a blessing to me because, as a single mom, I often need to do something for my job or need to be somewhere. And she just steps right in and takes over with my son and takes care of him. So yes, she continues to just bear fruit for the Lord in my life, for sure. And I'm grateful for her. And I think about it too, Wendy, how lucky I was to have the mom I did, because the prayers, right? Right.

Oh, man. I know that my mom was faithful in her prayers. I mean, every single morning. It was something she did.

If she put her clothes on, she was also praying. I'm sure your mom is the same way, Wendy. And, you know, it's pretty cool that I know that now. I had no appreciation for it.

None, I can guarantee until I was in my 30s. I had no appreciation for that. But oh, my goodness, what an impact it ended up being.

And when you think about, you know, a lot of being a mom is having faith, even though your kids so far are not responding at all, right? Right. So thank you, Wendy, for what you do. Wendy, what's your mom's name? Her name is Joy. Joy. Oh!

Well, that's true. And she is a joy. She really is. She truly is. And she does pray. She's a prayer warrior. I'm sure she's so proud of you and the job you've done with Trey. And I hope she was listening.

And I hope you get to see her or at least call her tomorrow. Yeah. And speaking of that, it's fishing season for Trey and for Scott.

That's right. I'm ready. And so I'm – you guys, can you get with her and figure out some Sunday afternoon or something? We can all go fishing? Sure. Sure.

Would you please? June opens up for me, so. Good. Good. Well, let's do it.

I want to do it. So thank you, Wendy. God bless you. Have a great Mother's Day, okay? Yeah.

We'll keep praying about those cars. Thank you. Bye-bye. Bye-bye.

All right. We got Ms. J is in Greensboro. Ms. J, you're on the Christian Car Guys show.

I know when it comes to moms, you're very close to yours. Are you up there with her now? Morning, Jacqueline. No. I wish I could make it up there.

No, not there. My car I need to check up, but it's been – I just want to give a shout-out to Scott. Hey, Scott. How you doing? Good morning. So nice to hear from you. Oh, yes.

And the car has definitely been a blessing for me. But I still just got to get some other things done. My mom is in the hospital. They said that her cancer has returned. Oh, no. I'm sorry. She stole my back.

Kind of like went back into her system, like it's filled in her system, so I guess some kind of poisons or something are going on in there. But my brother came from California. He's there with her, as far as I know. Oh, that's good.

So I'm glad about that. But the thing that I remember about mom is some little bits and pieces of her. Ms. Waverly was over a mile – her mother still worked on the farm on the field. And she – I remember her telling me a story about one of the – the landowner came up to – on a horse and said, gal, finish those fields by Sunday. And she looked out there in the field, and she knew that that wasn't going to happen in between that time. And she was the next generation from my mother.

She just dropped the basket and walked off. And she said she walked off, and that started her – her journey. You know, eventually it came, I guess, that I had me – you know, I had a brother before me.

He passed. And then I was born. And then I remember another nugget bite. I remember my mom crying after she had me, and she – I guess she didn't have the money. She was crying out. This is the first time I understood that she – who she was talking to. She was crying out to God. She was standing kneeled down, and she was telling God, God, I'm going to feed my children. I don't have the money.

I'm going to do it. And I heard her saying – saying things to him. And I was just like, wow.

That was the very first time I heard that. And then the knock came on the door, and this man's name was Chicky, and he used to bring the clothes in from the cleaners. And he said, Daddy, I have something for you. He just saw my heart and gave her an envelope.

And in the envelope, it was money. And she saw it praising God. And so that was the first – she was my first example of being able to talk to God and then get results. So it was just amazing for me, which I didn't fully understand it, but she got sick later on. My mom had been having a journey of sickness, and I don't know – understand what's all that feels like Joe was in my family for some reason. And when she got sick, a family member had to come care for us, and I was crying out. And I remember my mom on her knees. So I used that same type of attitude and saying, I don't know who you are, but please help my mom. Please help my mom and please spare her life or what, because everybody was counting her out. She had something dealing with her liver at that time.

I know she was an alcoholic before that, and then she had given it up, but it had already messed up some things in her body. And the next thing I know, my mom was coming home. So that was the second time that I got – I prayed out to him, you know, that I saw prayer go out, and then it came back in.

So those are the nuggets that I have. And then I have a little – just a little poem I've written. Oh, God. Oh, I love your poems. I have never shared the person who lives inside of me, but there comes a time in our lives that some things must be said to let our loved ones know that we care so very dear. So here's a Rose poem that I've written. Oh, Ms. J, we've got to go to a break, so we're going to get to hear the poem when we come back. Yeah, hold on. Please hold on. And we need still your call about your mom. We've got plenty of time, a whole segment.

You can call us, 866-348-7884, 866-344-TRUTH. We'll be right back. You're listening to the Truth Network and I love you all over there, bye. Made by a great cloud of Witness Moms, or Martyr Moms, as we like to think about it.

And I would love to hear your story. We've got plenty of time, 866-348-7884, 866-344-TRUTH. As the Christian Car Guys show from its onset, we have enjoyed the fact that we always come on Mother's Day Eve, because Saturday morning – and we get a chance to honor moms, which I know my mom had such a huge, gigantic impact in my life, as did my grandmother and my great-great-grandmother, and all the suffering that went into all those that were before us. And so right before the break, Ms. Jay had started her poem, and so let's – Please continue. Yeah. Let's hear the rest.

Okay, thank you. I'm sorry we got interrupted, but to my mother, to my mother who will live as long as I do, and that's the most precious gift of a child of God and mine to have. And I'm so very grateful of your being still existing, and I know the words mom will never often say.

Your rosebuds will grow forever and ever. You see it in me and my children, and I thank God for allowing me to express to you my poetry and my love that's well overdue. He made me realize, mom, it's never too late to say, I love you, mother, with all of my heart.

Oh. Love it. We absolutely do, Ms. Jay, and we're so grateful for you as always. And the gift God gave you to sing and to write poetry, and most of all, to love, right?

Whether that's the children that were on your school bus or your mom or your own kids. That's my generation from my grandma, my mother's mother, and them being slaves on the field, and my mother coming out of that situation being free, and then she's moving from North to – then she went up to Jersey and to live a whole nother way, so I think she's been my unsung hero. You know, and I'm just, you know, I'm just letting things go, you know, a lot of things she's going to let me go and just giving more and more things to God, so I'm still so grateful for her presence still being here for real.

Darrell Bock Me too. Me too, because if it hadn't been for her, we'd never got a chance to meet you. So thank you again. You have a great Mother's Day. God bless, Ms. Jay.

Bye-bye. Again, the number to call for your, right, faith story, we would love to hear it, is 866-348-7884, 866-34-TRUTH, if you're digitally gifted. And Scott, we had an interesting situation with a veteran up there in, actually, in Ashboro, right, which is where my church is, where I'm a pastor of West Ashboro Baptist Church, if you're ever in that area, we would love to come see you, but what happened? Scott Yes, I got this delightful call this week from a mechanic in Ashboro, actually it was a lady who worked there, and I'd like to give a shout out, she was so kind and pleasant, her name was Angie, and the name of the shop was called R&D, and I told her to send us the information, because sometimes we have people in that area, and they might want a good shop to go to.

And what happened, Robbie? We had a guy that had a car, it was an old beater, and he had it repaired there, and used some of our funds and some of his funds, and he wasn't happy, they couldn't put Humpty back together again, they couldn't quite make it new, and that happens sometimes with cars, as with our bodies, but, so he was all upset, and he called me back, and he said, I told him I want my money back, and I'll get your money back, and I was like, okay, I was like, I've got you on the list, you know, Brian, if a car comes up, you know. He was a veteran, right? He is a veteran, and so I didn't think nothing of it when he said they'd refund our money, I was like, I'll believe that when I see it. And I got a call, I think Monday morning, and this lovely lady, and I didn't recognize the number, but I picked it up, and she says, is this Scott with the Jesus? I said, it sure is, and she goes, I wanted to let you know that we refunded your money, I was like, what, money, what? And she said, for a car repair, she told me the gentleman's name, and I was like, you did what? And she said, yeah, we took the parts back off, he didn't want us, and I was like, okay, and we got to talking, we prayed together, and I told her what we did, and I said, well, if you could send me your information, we'd love to put you on our list to use you when we have people in that area, because some people that call us out of it. Darrell Bock Right, and so, you know, for those who may not be familiar with that situation, as Scott is explaining it, is they absolutely had to fit the bill for all the labor, in other words, they had to pay their mechanic, or if the mechanic was the owner, he was taking his time, and he could have been billing something that he was making his money to, again, take these parts off, even though legitimately the car needed them, and it was really, and it's R&D in Asheville, right?

Scott Cunningham Yes, I think so, I hope I got that right. Darrell Bock And so, since, you know, I can get a shameless plug in here, Scott, and I will, I don't know, you know, a lot of you listening know the Man Up show with Nikita Koloff, and Nikita Koloff is formerly the Russian nightmare, now the devil's worst nightmare, he is going to be speaking at our church, we got a Man Up conference, which is coming June the 8th, so if you go to Facebook, and WABC, which is West of Ashboro Baptist Church at Facebook, you can register, it's only $29, fathers, grandsons, whatever, what a great thing to do right before Father's Day, someone's talking about that, is to come see Nikita Koloff, I got to see him again, Wednesday night at a Frank Mickens, or it was Thursday night, at a Frank Mickens event, and he is so good, his real gifting is as an evangelist or something, so you know somebody that you've been wanting, it may be a wrestling fan, or loves professional athletes or that kind of thing, I mean bring them to this event coming June 8th, it starts like at 9 o'clock on a Saturday morning, and it's going to really be something, again, the Man Up Intensive coming to West of Ashboro Baptist Church, WABC, on Facebook, go get registered $29 for that, so, how fun, or if you ever are in the Ashboro area on a Sunday, we would always love to see you there. What a dynamic speaker, and what a story he has to tell.

Yeah, Nikita, actually he was the keynote speaker for our men's ministry last fall, and we absolutely loved it. And again, for those of you who may not be familiar with what we're talking about, the car repair, we have within the Christian Car Guys Show a ministry that God put on my heart many, many, many years ago, called the Jesus Labor Love, and what it is, is car repair for single moms and widows, families in crisis across the country, so, you know, we're kind of the middle men, as God put it on our heart, that a lot of widows, and this is how simple this goes, right, that after their husband passes away, or after their, you know, if their single mom, their husband's left, then they got no way to take care of their car, because all that was being done by their husband, or all that was being done by their, now I realize there's very mechanically gifted women out there, but in a lot of cases, most of our needs come from that area of single moms and widows. But we had this widow come to Jerry, I'll never forget, and she was like, I can't get the air conditioner to work in my car.

And she'd been running around in the hot summer, because she didn't have the money to fix it for two summers. And Jerry is not a mechanic, he's a body shop guy, he said, well, I can just take a look at it, and he sits down in the car and he says, gee, you see this little snowflake button right here, that's the air conditioning compressor, if you push that on, you could have air conditioning. And so something as simple as that is unbelievable what comfort you can give somebody sometimes without all that much in the way of resources. And so, you know, God has blessed us with this ministry, we've had lots of cars donated, that's absolutely amazing, when God, you know, a lot of people that, you know, didn't want to trade their car, whatever they give it, at the Jesus Labor Love, it's all there at, as well, again, of all the resources here at the Christian Car Guy show. So, again, go to to find out more about the Jesus Labor Love, donate, pray for us, whatever you got there, what'd you want to say, Scott? Yeah, I just wanted to give a shout out to my dear mother, Jewel Barton. Of course! Quick story, as far as faithful prayer, my mom used to always keep this prayer list, or prayer journal, on her little nightstand, and I found it one day, and it had all my friends' names in it, and I was like, what are you doing? What is this all about? Oh, I'd just like to pray. That's how faithful she was. There you go. Well, remember, slow down, Jesus walked everywhere he went, and got it all. This is the Truth Network.
