Just as the donkey
carries a cross we too have our own crosses to bear,
some heavier than others. Looking further one might
also notice that the cross upon the donkey marks the
exact center of his being. I believe this is to be a
sign for us. When we place Christ in the center of our
lives he is faithful to carry our burdens if only we
would turn them over to him. In a town called Bethlehem
a donkey such as this carried the word in. Later he
carried the word to Calvary and now he has carried it to
many of you. If you have received a Bible at a donkey
show, special event, occasion, or from someone who
picked one up just for you, know that a special prayer
has been said each day on your behalf. You can find
the number of your Bible listed below along with the
daily prayer that goes out for you.
You may also email me with any special prayer requests
and I will add them to my personal prayer list. I would
be glad to post any requests if you so desire.
prayer goes something like this: Lord I pray that those
who were faithful to your call and have received one of
the Bibles listed below will hunger for the revelation
knowledge of you which comes through your Word. I ask
Lord that they will desire to have a closer relationship
with you. Bless their home with peace, joy, hope, etc.
Protect their family from the hand of Satan. Lord I
pray too that you will heal them of any physical,
emotional, and/or financial problems that they may be
encountering. Show them that your word will reveal to
them the true purpose for their life. Pour out upon
them special blessings that they may share their joy
with others so that all might see Jesus in them.
learn about the loving kindness of this most
extraordinary man, God's son, you should begin reading
in the book of John. Once you understand who he is you
may want to except his gift of eternal life. As you
read the following scriptures the Lord will reveal to
you how you may receive salvation through grace.
Revelations 3: 20

To date we have now passed out 1700 Bibles
July 4th, 2011:
was our first parade for the 2011 year and it was Great
Fun!! We had never participated in the
Campbellsville Parade, but heard that it had a terrific
crowd. It was impressive to see such community
support considering the impending threat of rain.
As I passed out the Bibles today I could not help but
think of all those who had lost their lives to
ensure us the luxury of our freedom. More
than any other I was reminded of the bondage we
sometimes find ourselves living in and how it robs us of
our joy. Our little donkey is named after an old
testament character named Moses who led the the
Israelites out of bondage and the hands of Pharaoh.
Like the Moses of the Old Testament our little Moses
spreads the good news of Jesus Christ who alone can set
you free. Within the pages of the Bible you
received is the key to unlocking the secret of attaining
peace and feeling abundant joy which God so desires for
you in your life. I pray that you will find time
each day to spend reading God's Word and that through
his Word any chains that bind you will be loosed.
John 8:31-32 So Jesus said to
the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my
word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the
truth, and the truth will set you free.”
June 9th, 2012:
was yet another first for us. The Brass Band
Parade was one we had not yet participated in.
Also, Moses, who traditionally pulls our cart has been
sick so that left Good As Gold, pulling our cart instead. We were
very proud of him. This was his first parade and
he did exceptionally well. You know, firsts, can be exciting; however
with them come a plethora of unknowns. If you are
like most we tend to find
ourselves stressing over the simple things like what to
wear, will everything go just the way I planned, and
let's not forget all the what ifs..? I
question whether the Lord would have us devote our time to
these kinds of thoughts.
When we give in to these notions we find ourselves
looking at life's opportunities as obstacles to be
overcome instead of avenues for which we may, through
Christ, bless others. Let us always be content
with where we are and put God in control knowing that
all will be okay. I pray
that through spending time in God's Word we will be
reminded how richly blessed we all are. Investing
time in Thanksgiving to God leaves less time to ponder
over what tomorrow will bring. I pray that this
verse will be one you can stand on when facing those
"firsts" in your life.
Be anxious for nothing,
but in everything by prayer and supplication, with
thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God ...
