Dan & Moira

Within the next month, Dan and Moira Erwine’s caring ministry to 6 families with 18 people will be drawing to a close. Dan, who has been fighting cancer along with other new illnesses, has been okayed by his medical doctors to move to Florida where he and Moira will continue doing God’s will and work among Floridians in need. The toilet paper, tissues, and paper towels and other foods given to Dan’s Helpful Program will now be sent to the Redeemer Hunger and Crises Center on Cleveland’s W. 30th.
