Report of the Passing Of I.D. Moffitt

Ernest Beam, Long Beach, Calif., December 6: "I recently preached two weeks at San Diego, where B. E. Hayden is the minister, and also at the Palm and Dennett congregation in Fresno. One was baptized and four identified at San Diego, and seven were baptized and about fourteen restored or identified at Fresno. Some of these were from the Baptists with Scriptural baptism and others from the Christian Church. Porter Norris, formerly of Tennessee, but now of Fresno, is doing as much good as any preacher in the State. He is holding mission meetings, establishing new congregations, breaking down old prejudices, and remembering the poor and the afflicted. Work here at Ninth and Olive is going good, with increased activity among many members during my absence. I. D. Moffitt, a preacher of the gospel for years, died here recently. He was a good man." --Ernest Beam, Long Beach, California, reporting in the Gospel Advocate, December 19, 1929, page 1209
