We at times are afforded an opportunity by the Lord to share the "Goodness" of His Love to us with another person. A personal testimony is always a great way to start because it builds up our confidence to speak of things not common in everyday Truck Stops, warehouses, loading docks or waterfronts. Any location can and should be turned into a victory for Jesus instead of a score for Satan. We believe that the time clock left here on earth is running out and the Lords' return is imminent.

Begin with a silent prayer for God to lead you through what He feels is important to bring out to that person. As you share your personal testimony, lace it with scriptures that are appropriate and you can recall. We've taken the time to list a few and you may copy this list on your printer to carry in your wallet or truck to memorize so to recall them at the time of need. I enjoy going into restaurants at truck stops and looking for a driver sitting alone just beginning his or her meal and asking if I may join them. Very rarely will I ever get a "no". We all like to talk and starting off by "Giving Thanks" for your food is a way to open any door. Try these Scriptures out for memorization, look up the verses and complete them, and trust that the Lord will use you in a positive and thrilling way to speak to His Creation.
