My Testimony

I, David Moore, have the confidence that if I were to die today, I would spend eternity in Heaven. "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life." I John 5:13

If I were to die today and stand before God and He were to say to me, "Why should I let you into Heaven?" I would respond: Jesus found me. He has paid the price for my salvation. I didn’t deserve it, but He loves me. I was born into sin, and I needed God. I was in disobedience to God, but He picked me up for His glory. Jesus is Lord, and I invited Him to come into my life. Now I am a tool for God. Praise the Lord!

As best I recall, this took place at home in Franklin, Massachusetts when I was very young. When I think about this important event, I remember my sister, Susanna, asking me if I had prayed to accept Christ as my Lord and Savior. I answered, "no." She asked if I wanted to, and I said, "yes." She led me in prayer, and then we ran up the stairs to tell the good news to my parents!

Since I received Christ, I can see God’s hand at work changing me and equipping me for His service in the following ways:
I want to obey my parents and respect my elders. When I see people with a need, I love to help them. God has given me a talent with music, and I enjoy playing for Him. He has given me a desire to serve the church and the ministry with my abilities.

I was scripturally baptized in a lake in Franklin, Massachusetts by my father who was our pastor. That was in the summer of 1997.

Some of the people whom the Lord used to bring me to Christ were my father and mother.

That is Fine

By David Moore
Local Press Writer
Moore City (LP) - “Even if the only thing you ever publish is "HI" that is fine,” wrote Markus of the Blue Springs Journal on Tue, 28 Mar 2006. Now, on April 18th he stated that, “I can't wait for the day that you write something new.” Obviously, he has not read Study.Quiet’s post on Patience. On another occasion, April 26, Markus also wrote, “ITS BEEN YEARS.” I can say truthfully that it has been only 35 days since I last posted. It is clear that Markus is exaggerating. The Moore City News reports that Markus has too much time, for he communicated that he has read the past article 5,000 times. He is coming to The News to discover if I’m still alive, for he said “I WILL WONDER IF YOU ARE STILL ALIVE.” I can assure all my readers that I’m alive and well.

That is all for now from the Moore City News. ...And why would I write a post on ants? Perhaps I shall do it!

Counterfeiting Money One of Oldest Crimes

By David Moore
Local Press Writer
MOORE CITY (LP) - “Counterfeiting of money is one of the oldest crimes in history” according to a source from the Secret Service.

In the 19th century counterfeiting was a grave problem. Banks issued their own currency near the time of the War for Southern Independence. It was estimated that one-third of all currency in circulation was counterfeit.

They also said “At that time, there were approximately 1,600 state banks designing and printing their own notes. Each note carried a different design, making it difficult to distinguish the 4,000 varieties of counterfeits from the 7,000 varieties of genuine notes. It was anticipated that the adoption of a national currency in 1863 would solve the counterfeiting problem. However, the national currency was soon counterfeited so extensively it became necessary for the Government to take enforcement measures. On July 5, 1865, the
United States Secret Service was established to suppress counterfeiting.”

Bureau of Engraving and Printing began putting security features on paper money in 1996. It was the first major design change since 1928. However, the problem has continued to this day.

Bureau of Engraving and Printing remarked, “Advanced copying technologies have helped raise the incidence of counterfeiting. Ink jet printers, color copiers, and scanners are just a few tools criminals use to create bogus bills. In keeping with the strategy of maintaining the security of our currency by enhancing the designs every 7 – 10 years, a new series of U.S. currency is being issued.”

Taken from the official Secret Service website, hear are a few practical tips If You Receive a Counterfeit.

"1. Do not return it to the passer.

2. Delay the passer if possible.

3. Observe the passer's description, as well as that of any companions, and the license numbers of any vehicles used.

4. Contact your local police department or United States Secret Service field office. These numbers can be found on the inside front page of your local telephone directory.

5. Write your initials and the date in the white border areas of the suspect note.

6. Limit the handling of the note. Carefully place it in a protective covering, such as an envelope.

7. Surrender the note or coin only to a properly identified police officer or a U.S. Secret Service special agent."

That is all for now from the Moore City News.

Fun Fact

"There are over four billion $1 bills in circulation, and the life expectancy of each is approximately 18 months. Since larger denominations are handled less, they last longer."
