GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) _ A small ministry in western Kansas has
been catering to truckers and travelers at a Garden City truck
stop.

The Pit Stop Praise is located at a truck stop north of a
junction on U.S. Highway 50. The half-hour program on Friday
evenings usually attracts up to about a dozen participants.

Jay Schoonover, an elder with the Garden City Presbyterian
Church, helped spearhead the initiative, which started a year ago.
He told The Garden City Telegram that many people pass through needing to talk or some sort of assistance.

Yvonne Battles, of the local Church of the Nazarene, also helped
start the program. She said truckers often arrive in Garden City on
Fridays and must wait until Monday to depart. She says the service
gives them a needed break.
