While the US celebrates Martin Luther King’s birthday, I must admit it took a long time before I understood the difference between ‘his” vision and my reality. You see, I didn’t see the “peaceful demonstration” rather I was a white child in a predominately black neighborhood and I remember the fear of being in a car that was surrounded by an angry mob rocking the car in attempt to overturn it! The black crossing guard who I’d been taught was a safe person I could run to in time of need, stood alongside of the crowd and did absolutely nothing to dissuade them. By the grace of God, my family survived and moved across town shortly after. This is just one life event as a “minority” child growing up but I have to say that while my own vision of Dr.King was tainted, it didn’t infect my view of all black people and I went on to be highly influenced by Ms. Jackson, my eighth grade English teacher and my best friend Michelle, at my first job. We don’t have to let the prejudices of our past continue to influence our future; rather, we have the freedom to choose whether to wallow in self-pity or as Dr. King repeatedly said, become overcomers.

I’d like to introduce you to Andy Scotsman Moore. Andy and his wife, Debbie are waiting to be assigned as pastors and missionaries to a church through www.villagemissions.org. Village Missions place spiritually qualified missionary-pastors to churches in rural communities where they serve in a full-time capacity to provide a Christ-centered church program to the community. Andy was the unofficial resident pastor for the Exwitch and Ancient Crossroads ministry. Our own Mark Bishop (whose testimony is in my latest book “From The Craft To Christ”) also one of the Exwitch administrators provided this statement, “Andy helped in many ways with the exwitch forums as well as the Ancientcrossroads forum. He did everything from apologetics to prayer, with plenty of room in-between for keeping the board running smoothly.”
Andy’s call to ministry began in the 80’s as a pastor and teacher with a focus on discipleship leading him to serve in Japan and the U.S. Both he and his wife share a love for motorcycles and incorporate their passion into sharing and showing the love of Jesus Christ to motorcyclists through the Cheyenne Christian Riders (CMA), in which Andy was the former Vice President and current State Prayer Coordinator for Wyoming.
This next season of ministry is a huge step of faith for Andy and Debbie who will need to raise a minimum support base ($600 a month) before they can be placed in their new church home. Please prayerfully consider partnering with them on a monthly basis or make a donation on their behalf. Go to www.villagemissions.org at the top, you will see see a heading which says “Partner with Us.” Scroll over that and it will bring up a window. Click on Donate Online. Find the “Donate to a Missionary” section and click on the “U.S. Donations” button. This will take you to the support page. Find the drop down box under Support a Missionary. Find their names listed alphabetically and click on Andy & Debra Moore. Fill out the rest of the form and submit.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration in sowing into this ministry.
