Matt 10:16-23 (22)
As I considered this topic my mind traveled many miles from Kansas City. In an instant I was in an cozy cottage in Cuba, AL on the campus of the Southern Annual Camp. There Rev. and Mrs. Troy Moore resided. For years he was a faithful warrior of the cross. He brought hope and happiness to many. The humorous stories from his experiences still bring laughter to those who remember how he told them with such meaning.
Creases stretching out from the corner of his eyes revealed that he was optimistic and full of faith. I remember when he and his wife visited the Mid-South Camp meeting that I chaired in Tennessee. You could hear him in his room in the afternoon while others were taking naps. It was not a snoring sound that drew your attention to his room but the pacing of feet moving around behind the closed door and his deep resonant voice quoting scripture after scripture. He was a man of faith and a man of the Word.
Even when Bro. Moore was diagnosed to have cancer it did not change his outlook on life. Did he complain? Did it altered his desire and efforts to serve the Lord? No . . . even through sickness and pain, difficulty and uncertainty Bro. Moore left an example for others of the faith.
Endure faithfully to the end.
