We are saddened, yet rejoicing with you, that WFRN Founder and President Ed Moore (Dad) went home on Wednesday, February 8 and is in the presence of the Lord. As many of you know, he had been struggling with his health recently. However, the last few weeks he had been feeling much better and felt the power of your prayers. In the days ahead we look forward to hearing you share your thoughts and memories of Ed Moore and the impact of WFRN in your life. We greatly appreciate your continued prayers and support as the WFRN ministry carries on the legacy. ~ The Moore Family

One of Ed's Favorite Verses: "This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you. For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. So never be ashamed to tell others about our Lord."
