"I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing." 2 Timothy 4:7-8 KJV Brother Zebedee Moore proved himself to be a man of great courage and determination promoting the cause of Christ. Minister Zebedee Moore, 78, of Valdosta, Georgia heeded his Savior's call on Friday, August 28, 2020 at home.
