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

Thank you Tony Mac for giving to the Lord!
Tony finished his course, fought the good fight and completed his earthly assignment. God couldn't wait another minute for Tony to be in His presence and show him all his rewards he has accumulated. Countless truck drivers, youth, men and women, prisoners, church people are all lined up thanking Tony for showing them the way to Jesus "Praise the Lord!!"
Here is a short testimony of how much Tony Mac meant to me and I encourage you to write your's out and send it to Candy:
I Remember the day I met Tony (Mac) in 2002 in a small Church in Springerton,IL. Kenny and Rita Rager was Candy's Pastor in Catoosa, Ok when Tony was in Prison and become close friends with Tony and Candy. Kenny & Rita Rager had since moved to Carmi, iL. and was the Pastor of a Church in Springerton. They had invited Tony to come to IL and share his testimony at their Church (Springerton Community Church) when he got out of prison. After hearing his testimony I met Tony at the back of the Church and told him I had a small tape ministry to truck drivers and ask him if I could use his testimony to send out across the Country to reach the lost and hurting souls. He told me that day, " My testimony belongs to God not me, You go for it." He gave me a copy of his testimony he had on dvd and I got it downloaded to a cassette tape and started duplicating the Tony Mac Testimony "Free in Christ" and sending them out across the country on the cassette tapes in a ministry called The Lonesome Road Tape Ministry. After that Tony started getting calls from all over the Country and we quickly became very close friends with Tony & Candy and both our ministries began to grow, As I look back I know it was "A Setup by God." God had a plan to reach many lost and hurting souls all across America and around the World and God had placed us
The Lonesome Road Tape Ministry continued even after our ministry went to Orchardville Church and we help start the Orchardville Tape Ministry which later became the Orchardville CD Ministry as the Cassettes became obsolete. At Orcharville Church the Lonesome Road Tape Ministry which was a very small tape ministry doing about 100 Cassettes a month quickly blossomed into a very large tape ministry. We quickly grew with a congregation that was hungry to see souls saved, our tape ministry went from 100 a month to 6,000 a month by the end of the year 2006. In 2006 God opened a new door for me and I went to work for a oil field company in Carmi, IL. Les Wilson Inc. and in 2007 God opened a new door and I became the Oil Field Chaplain and we began a new cd ministry called Receiving in God Ministries or RIG Ministries making cds for oil field workers, Truck drivers and whosoever. Since Rig Ministries began in Feb of 2007 Rig Ministries has produced over 1 1/2 million cds and Tony Mac's Testimony cd Free In Christ has always been our most popular and most requested cd.. Rig Ministries will continue to send out Tony's testimony and Tony's messages that we have on cd. I know it will continue to be our most requested cd and it will continue to reach many lost souls around the world setting the captives free.
Your probably wishing there was something you could do to help! Well there is, we need to be praying for Candy and her family more than ever now, and pray for Free In Christ Ministries as they continue the work that Tony Mac began in prison when he got saved and set free in 1996. We ask you to send cards, letters, donations, and your love to Candy and Free In Christ Ministries asking them to continue the Work. Call and book Candy (Mac) @ 918-277-4934
for your Church, your women's conference, your Christian Event. Send them testimonies of how Tony's testimony has made a difference in your life. I can't imagine where Rig Ministries or I would be now if I hadn't met Tony in 2002. Thank You Tony & Candy Mac for giving to the Lord!

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!
Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account.
There is nothing the devil fears more than Christians who are united. This means that his number one tactic is to bring disunity in the Church. If he can succeed, then the Church is crippled. When we work together things just seem to go smoother. Rig Ministries has teamed up with lots of other ministries across the country working together. We work close together with Channel 21 Ministries, J & A Ministries, Faith on the Move Ministries, Free In Christ Ministries and many other ministries.
Jesus spoke about the power of agreement in Matthew 18:19: "Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven." Don't put any limitation on this Scripture. Jesus says what He means. We can receive anything if we agree about it in prayer.
The Bible says that one can put a thousand to flight, but two could put ten thousand to flight. If we work together in unity we can reach our area for Christ. We can make a difference in someone*s life today. Psalms 133:1 says Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! Working together we can be that net that stretches across America bringing in a harvest for the Lord! James chapter 5 verse 19 & 20 says: Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins. And that brings me back to the verse in Philippians, Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account. Everyone that sows tithes and offerings into this ministry we thank you! You are what keeps this ministry going and not only that the fruit of this ministry is going into your account in Heaven According to Philippians 4:18 it is a sweet smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God. And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus. The Unity that you find here at Rig Ministries at our 3 fold Cord Cd Ministry conference is something very special and I know it is that sweet smelling aroma to God.
Through this Unity of working together God has opened many doors for us here at Rig Ministries. We have been on Sirrus/XM radio for about a year now with "The Tim Ridley Show" on Channel 146 doing a program called Jump Start Your week with Chaplain Gary Rayburn. It now has a new time, 5:25 each Monday morning I will be jump starting your week with some positive thoughts to help guide you through your week. Last year James Payne was at our cd ministry conference and he has agreed to join us again this year. God has placed him here at Rig Ministries to work along side us with some great messages & some of his great music like this month's cd. "Seeing the Invisible and doing the Impossible." I know you will be blessed by the message and songs on this cd and want to share it with family, friends, and neighbors. God has opened a new door for James Payne he is hosting a new TV program on TCT starting soon called "Nashville Alive" and James had us down to Nashville in April to tape an interview that will be airing on TCT soon. Check your local TV guide to find out when this new program will be airing in your area. What an AWESOME God we serve. We want to encourage you to try and make it to Rig Ministries for our 3 Fold Cord cd Ministry conference June 24,25,26 it will be an awesome time here in Carmi. with Bob & Stephanie Wilson, Gary & Linda Rayburn, Tony & Candy Mac, Terry & Betty Hopkins, Jim and Ann Davenport, Richard Coss, Joe Arview, Bill Schell, Sherman Taylor, Melaine Walker, Darrell Spicer, Gaylon Taylor, and on Saturday night James Payne will be bringing a special guest with him to Rig Ministries.
