The year 1957 brought change to Mooresville and southern Iredell County, and that change arrived in trucks. Big white ones flashed the logo of Burlington Industries, the new owners of the Mooresville Cotton Mills. Bright yellow ones from the Duke Power Company brought earth-moving machines to clear the Catawba River bottomland. That project, envisioned by James Buchanan Duke, Dr. Gill Wylie, and William States Lee Jr., had the end goal of harnessing the energy of the Catawba River to provide electricity for the textile industry in the Carolinas. Duke Power's plan for Cowans Ford Lake was the last piece of the network of hydroelectric stations, and the result was beautiful Lake Norman.
It was a hot afternoon in August 1856 when people in southern Iredell County, North Carolina, gathered for a special event. The train was on its way, bringing officials, a brass band, and the economic future. John Franklin Moore viewed the railroad tracks as an opportunity to fulfill his dream of starting a community and building a town. He knew that trains would bring customers and new citizens and carry freight to and from markets. Moore took a bold step by providing land for a depot and siding and offering land for homes and businesses. Moore's Siding prospered and grew, and in 1873, the village was incorporated and named Mooresville to honor the founder. Generations of Mooresville citizens have taken daring steps into the future, building a community that is more than just a place--it's a home. This is a story of Mooresville, the Queen of Iredell.
Possessing the Gates of the Enemy: A Training Manual for Militant Intercession (Study Guide Included)by Cindy Jacobs
Foreword by C. Peter Wagner, Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, California. I know of no other book like this one. In the years that I have been researching prayer I have been carefully building a bibliography of significant books on the subject, both classic and contemporary. None of the 39 books so far on my list so much as approaches the content of Possessing the Gates of the Enemy. Possessing the Gates of the Enemy is a book that I not only recommend to all my friends, but require my students in Fuller Seminary to read.
