Jesus Christ Is Lord... not a swear word

If you notice on our trailers you will see the name of Jesus Christ. Our heart yearns for the world to know that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. Hollywood has portrayed a different image, an image that portrays Jesus Christ as trash as a bad word. The Most Holy, the Most Majestic created our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and our mission is to use trucking to spread the word to America and God willing all the way to England.

Sam Kholi Takes It to the Streets
By CAZ TAYLOR
The apostle Paul declared, "you are our epistle, known and read of all men." Trucker and entrepreneur Sam Kholi of Sam Kholi Enterprises uses the surfaces on his trucks and trailers as epistles traveling the highways and byways to proclaim Jesus as Lord.
For over a year, Kholi has been taking the message to the streets, literally.
Sam's $4 million inventory, which includes 115 trailers and some 60 truck/tractors (a few are owner-operated), are bedecked with the phrase "Jesus Christ Is Lord, not a swear word."
These mobile billboards can be seen delivering cargo between both coasts and in some parts of Canada. "I'm a pretty shy individual," said Kholi. "I considered a gentler message, but I didn¹t feel right about it."
Headquartered in San Diego near the Sports Arena — visible from I-8 — Kholi Enterprises also sends out his trucks from Texas, Montana and soon from Fontana.
A meek, yet outspoken Christian, Sam Kholi decided to put traction to his faith, while combating all the bad press Christ¹s name receives in the media.
"I love watching movies," said Kholi, "but I hate all the cursing and the using of the Lord¹s name in vain."
Besides his numerous impassioned pleas to deaf-eared entertainment industry leaders, he decided to transcribe his message on his trucks and trailers to be seen on his company¹s frequent routes through and around Hollywood.
Kholi knew from the beginning he would get some flack for his decision to present the gospel message in such a public way.
"Some customers said they didn¹t want their goods transported in trailers with this message. So, they¹re not customers anymore," Sam stated emphatically. "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation."
Being targeted is part of the life of a Christian, he feels. Indeed, being of Syrian heritage and coming from Damascus, he knows how costly espousing Jesus as Savior can be. "I've gotten threatened over the phone a few times," recalled Kholi.,They said if I didn¹t stop they would do this and that. I just hung up the phone and went on."
He says that 99% of the feedback about his trucks is positive. When transporting a recent load, "a motorcycle rider was so excited about the gospel message, that he kept weaving back and forth giving me the thumbs up. I had to roll down my window and yell, focus on the road, my brother!"
The message also provides an opportunity to share the gospel.
"I like driving to New York," recalled Sam. "Recently, a worker there saw the text on the trailer and asked if I was a preacher. I told him that I was a servant of Jesus Christ and that opened the door to share the gospel with him while I was loading."
Besides a trucking company, Sam Kholi Enterprises includes a payroll company at payrolling.com. That's really Sam¹s main income generator. Located at 4626 Albuquerque St. in San Diego, that company is a leading provider of payroll outsourcing in the U.S., Canada and other international regions. It has served over 30,000 employees at more than 1,000 companies.
"The trucking often generates a loss, so I use it as a tax write-off. I have a master's in taxation, and the payrolling company is my mainstay," said Sam, the entrepreneur.
Sam Kholi is a multi-faceted man with a penchant for serving the Lord in every way possible. He represents marketplace ministry in its highest form.
"To me, it¹s a blessing," said the member of San Diego First Assembly of God. "I've been saved for 27 years and it keeps getting better and better."
