My Name is Robert Moore.

December 19, 2005.
I was 23 years old when the cast iron door shut behind me.

I’d ben locked up before, but this was different. This time I knew I was done with the streets.

Months earlier I had shot and killed a man who came into my house unannounced. It was at that point, while I was sitting in jail, that I remember the Lord began to deal with me. If you are not affiliated with a gang you are considered nothing.

When I was in for the last I decided the only thing I was getting into was the Bible. Though this, and Chaplin Corey, God changed everything. God allowed me to go to Boot Camp.

When I was released on June 8, 2006, with the Word of God on my mind and no money, with the only I knew being the wrong way, God continued to be faithful. God enabled me to keep my faith and to pray.

My good friend from CPO, Rich Van Til, got me a job with M&M Roofing. I started on August 11, 2006. Id had to be the hottest day of the whole summer. I wanted to quit everyday but God enabled me to stick with and now, 2 years later, I own my roofing company, Moore & Moore Roofs. I’m married to a beautiful woman. We have a newborn child, a wonderful house in County Club Hills and we attend a great church.

I know I owe every one of my blessings to God. Faith without works is dead so we need to believe in God, believe in who God made us to be, and always… always… give 100% in everything we do.
