My first memory of Donnie was when he and the Radical Reality team came to Green Valley when I was like 6. He had done an alter call and around that time my mom developed epilepsy. I remember standing by my dad, watching him pray over people, laying hands in his way, and I didn’t know about being slain in the Spirit and didn’t register that other people were being laid out.  I saw him lay hands on my mom and she was slain, I freaked because I thought he caused my mom to have a seizure. Later my parents talked to me about it and now it’s one of my fond memories which we still laugh about. I have been going to RR Camp since 2002, been a camper, counselor, and on program team. One of my favorite things about Donnie beyond his huge heart was his sense of humor. I was on the team that started ‘Donnie Freaking Moore’ and I’ve always loved how he received it and how he joined in in celebrating and dancing with the students. It was at camp that I received my spiritual tongues, my calling, and built many many friendships not to mention felt the movement of the Holy Spirit, witnessed miracles, and experienced God’s love on a very real level. Donnie’s heart for young people and perseverance has left an enormous impact on my life. I don’t know where I’d be without his influence in my life. Last year at camp, he sat with me and encouraged me through the hard year I was going through. He has been like a father figure in my life and I’m so grateful for his life.

To friends and family:

I can’t imagine what you, the Moore family, are going through. I’m sure you have heard this from thousands of people across the country, but my heart and prayers go out to you. Not only has Donnie been and influence in my life but so has your family. I’m grateful for your hearts and your lives. I will continue to pray for your family and friends through this difficult time. I love you guys and am praying comfort and peace over you. Heaven has receive a fantastic person and it is through Christ we will meet again.
