I rarely repeat a theme in our updates, but this theme has been thrust upon us. I sent our last newsletter just after my stepfather, George Moore, passed away, and this update comes on the heels of my sister’s passing. Her name was Tammie Joyner, and she suffered from lifelong complications from diabetes. She was very frail, but we did not expect our family to suffer two losses in a three-week period. George and Tammie are with Jesus, and this is our comfort and the collective hope of all believers.
We have been full-time missionaries for 27 years, and our original motivation has never changed. Jesus said, “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:10 NASB) God’s overarching desire is to redeem and restore humanity, and finally, creation itself. That is the foundation for why we do what we do. Redemption and restoration are heaven’s Plan-A, where God invested his all, where all the other issues of this world are eclipsed by “so great a salvation.” (Heb. 2:3)
