Remembering a Special Servant of God

Doug Moore_edited.jpg

What shall I render to the Lord
For all His benefits toward me?
I will take up the cup of salvation,
And call upon the name of the Lord.
I will pay my vows to the Lord
Now in the presence of all His people.

Precious in the sight of the Lord
Is the death of His saints.

- Psalm 116:12-15

     On March 7, 2024, we lost a good friend and state board member Doug C. Moore. He is now more alive than ever in his Heavenly home with our Savior. We are happy for Doug, yet we miss him.
     Doug and his wife Susie are very special to our CEF ministry in West Texas. God sent them in March 2014 after we prayed for help in the South Plains. The CEF chapter in Lubbock was going to be dissolved if we could not rebuild the local committee. 
     One evening that March, we had a coffee & dessert get-together at Jim & Peggy Harman's to share the needs with local friends. We invited 150 people, and 10 came, including the Moores, even though they were not on our invitation list ... but they were on God's list!
     A few days earlier at a conference in Houston, Doug had heard a moving testimony by a pastor about how partnering with CEF was the best thing their church was doing.  When he got back to Lubbock, Doug called Patti Poff to ask about CEF in Lubbock -- was it still active? She let him know about our event at the Harman's, so he and his wife showed up and got involved!
     Doug served on the new committee to rebuild the South Plains Chapter along with Peggy Harman, Anita Owens, Anjanette Franklin, Kristen Harper and others who came on in following years. Until a local director was hired in August 2020, Doug took care of all the administrative work for the chapter.  "All hands on deck!" was one way he described committee members working together to do the work necessary to reach children who need to hear about Jesus.
     We praise God for His servant Doug and for sending him to continue and grow the work of reaching children with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
