Day of Hope Event
The Day of Hope Event was unlike anything CFO has encountered to be a part of; and the blessing is, it was in our local backyard-our home town! It is becoming more rare these days for close knit communities to pull together for a life giving cause and even more so, it has become scarce these events are done in Jesus name.

Praise The Lord for 2015
John 1:12-13 King James Version (KJV)
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
We have so much to be thankful for in the month of November in CFO of our eternal family that are receiving Jesus as Savior and Lord by the will of the Father in Heaven!
Four international missions are in progress taking the message of the CFO colors to, China, Cuba, Mexico, and Haiti. We anticipate all that God will do through their volunteer work out in the field.
Also in progress here in the U.S. we have 11 different functions sharing the CFO colors through Missions, Youth Group Gatherings, Church functions, Prisons, Schools, and Street Outreaches. Along with good news that we finally have 4 newest translations of the CFO tracts (Hebrew, Arabic, Zomi, and Urdu) in inventory, but the Navajo tract translation is still in progress.
Here is a recap of our recent trip to Cuba along with a few additional pictures:
Our Team of ten men had a wonderful mission trip to Cuba November 1-8. We were at Camp Canaan again in Santa Clara located in the middle of the island. It is a beautiful site for the camp where we conducted five days of church leader training that Reaching Souls International calls a Leadership Development Institute. We had 238 people from all over Cuba participating in the training. We also began and ended each day with a worship service. I taught classes in Evangelism and Discipleship. I presented each class member an evangecube, rawhide, bracelet, and tracts for witnessing. They loved all of them as you can see in the pictures. It was a moving experience to witness how enthusiastic the Cubans are to share Christ with everyone on the island. They began each service with a holy shout, "Cuba para Christo" (Cuba for Christ). There is another Team returning to Cuba in early February to train additional Cubans and equip them with evangelism tools to help them reach their goal.
Matthew 6:26 (KJV)
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Praise the Heavenly Precious Father, for He loves us so much! It was a wonderful month reaching out and sharing the message of salvation to many places this month. At the North Carolina State Fair there were 656 people young and old, who invited Jesus into their heart and lives there in the Christian Farmers Outreach Booth. The miracle was, they discovered the truth that God's plan of salvation is a free gift. Then seeing them understand that it is a relationship the Father wants with his eternal family. He loves us, and He anticipates our loving Him in return. That is what a family truly is! That is the message of salvation of what Jesus did on the cross and His resurrection for us to freely receive and enter into His eternal home of love and life. Lives are being eternally transformed because of those who are willing to share His love to as many as God places in their path.
Marvin, Kisha and Kila
They came in to hear the message. While sharing Kisha told us her husband was a minister. In a little while Kisha said, "I am a minister also." At the end of sharing the colors, they were asked if they were 100% sure if they die would they be with Jesus. Marvin and Kisha said, YES! Kila said," I have no idea." She wanted to know, so next she was lead in the invitation prayer on the back of the tract. She excitingly prayed and invited Jesus into her heart! Then when asked how they knew each other, they smiled saying, "16 year old Kila is our daughter."

For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the Lord endureth for ever. Praise ye the Lord.
Autumn is quickly approaching as seasons are changing but God's merciful kindness towards us never changes and His truth shall always remain. It has been a busy eventful month in September. Starting with the Maryland State Fair-God drew them in during different durations of the week resulting in 484 decisions receiving Jesus Christ as savior and Lord!
York Fair, Solanco Fair, Ag Progress Days, Maryland Steam show were truly full of blessings along with many decisions for receiving salvation.
Rochelle Visser contacted us with a praise report about her ministry leading Camp Michawana this past summer. She reported there were 52 campers who received Jesus as savior and Lord through the use of the CFO rawhides and tracts. Also there were three new members at her camp who are taking the CFO rawhides and tracts to train their churches on how to effectively evangelize the message of the gospel in their community. We are excited to see where God leads them in the years to come.
Rochelle Visser leader of Summer Camp Michawana-CFO's power team!
Internationally this month we are helping many missions to deliver the message of salvation through the colors, the Philippines, Hondorus, and Cuba are just to name a few. We continue to keep them in our prayers for God to do big things in their strong efforts in His eternal kingdom.
In a few weeks we will be getting a shipment of raw hides that need to be strung. In each bag of rawhides there will be 1,000 of the rawhides and 5 different colors of beads-500 each color. One person can string one bag of rawhides in 15 hours, or use it as an opportunity to get others involved through churches or local community organizations such as the senior citizen's homes and/or youth groups. This easy fun project of stringing rawhides can also be used as a great opportunity to have a fellowship gathering where music, food, and other activities can be included to encourage a bonding in the church and within the community. If you are interested in being a volunteer stringing rawhides you can call our ministry office number (443 )508-4338 or email email@example.com
Philippians 2:9-11 King James Version (KJV)
JESUS the name above all names!
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Jesus is truly bringing in the increase throughout this year of 2015. This month as our CFO workers go into all the earth sharing the good news of the gospel through the colors, the testimonies have kept rolling in of thousands receiving Jesus as the Messiah-Savior and Lord!
Our 2016 CFO magazine edition will be published in the month of November. We are excited to share what our CFO workers are doing both in the US and Internationally. From our own back yard in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Alabama, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, to overseas in Poland, Israel, Malawi-Africa, and much more!
Just a reminder, on Face Book, Christian Farmers Outreach has new testimonies with pictures to enjoy. Be inspired with things God is doing in the lives of our CFO workers and the results of hundreds of people all over the world receiving Jesus as savior and Lord through the use of the CFO witnessing tools.
Here are some of our completed Event's results

In the CFO booth at the Carroll County Fair - Westminster, MD, Jane Lippy leads a couple in prayer to receive Jesus.
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
But the word of God grew and multiplied.
God has been increasingly generous in His faithfulness to our CFO prayer warriors' requests in this ministry reaching the lost. We prayed in Jesus name and the word of God grew and multiplied in ways we couldn't even imagine this month! Earlier this year in March Wilson and Jack went to their yearly visit to Budapest, Hungary to distribute the CFO witnessing supplies. People from all over the world attend this Bible Conference-this included our brothers and sisters in Christ who were all the way from Togo. They pleaded with CFO to send our workers to Togo because they wanted to be more effectively trained how to share the message plan of salvation through the use of the CFO bracelets and tracts. After prayer and seeking God for direction, Wilson and Jack took on this opportunity. Wilson packed 300 pounds of beaded bracelets, wristbands, French tracts, Togalog tracts and CFO magazines. Then after flying 22 hours to Togo, they trained 2,830 people from 38 different countries how to evangelize with the use of the colors. It was beyond our wildest seeing the Holy Spirit in action through it all. Not only did an evangelism outbreak take place there in Togo with many decisions receiving Jesus as savior and Lord, but CFO now has an estimated 50 new CFO members taking the colors throughout Africa to newly started Churches, and communities. More on this missions trip will be in the upcoming 2016 CFO magazine.
Our other faithful partners have called in asking for more witnessing supplies with different outreaches, ministries, and events.
They are as follows…
Jerry Hamlin - Leadership Development Institute in Malawi
Kelly Larkin - Glennville, New York Evangelism
Debbie Colby - Thailand and Cambodia Missions
Pastor Cooper - Puerto Rico Missions
Evi - China Missions
Pastor Ishmael - Reading, Pennsylvania Evangelism
Andy - Australia Evangelism

Grace Baptist Church - Pennsylvania Red Lion State Fair
Jerry Hamlin - Africa, Ivory Coast Starting Christian School Chairman of the Deacon Board and The Missions Committee
Franklin Huhn - Missions to Turkey
Bishop Loir McDaniel - Baltimore, Maryland-Day of Hope Event Local Outreach
In closing we have been so blessed with the testimonies that keep rolling in from our CFO partners from around the world. Marzina and her husband contacted us with the results of their street witnessing of many receiving Jesus there in Warsaw Poland. Our brother in Christ Doug Nelson is on another mission's trip this year. We are keeping him and his team in our prayers as God leads them out there to share the message of salvation to everyone in their path. We heard back from Pastor El Shan with miracle testimonies that God is doing big things in Azerbaijan. We are praying for God's protection on El Shan and his ministry and we were instructed to keep most of his praise reports confidential as we understand why that is. Another praise report, we heard back from our brother in Christ Adam Nathanson all the way from Venezuela! He honored us by being our guest speaker a few months ago at our monthly prayer breakfast meeting. He has shared the CFO beads and tracts in Venezuela to hundreds yearly. From sharing Jesus to professional soccer players, locals, and pastoring a rapidly growing Church, Adam and his family continue pouring in God's kingdom of the lost turning to Christ.
Here at the CFO headquarters in Maryland, we have lots of back to back upcoming events. In progress we have the Harford County Fair and next week the Carroll County Fair. Then following will be the Maryland State Fair where our CFO booth is set up and our volunteers show up to share the message of the colors. We are fervently praying and believing that God will bring in those who are seeking Jesus. This is such a powerful time of harvest in God's kingdom.
Please keep the testimonies and pictures rolling in. You can do this by sending the pictures and testimonies to firstname.lastname@example.org
We have been very busy but we have posted updated pictures on the Christian Farmers Outreach Face Book page and as we get more, we will surely continue keeping you all posted.
Philippians 4:13 (kjv)
"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
WOW AGAIN, as we have seen God working through the efforts of the CFO workers to their obedience to the gospel of Jesus Christ in the month of June. Daily we all experienced God's strength working in us as we had a great turn up for the CFO Summer Annual Picnic and Work Day. Between preparations and the weather for both of these gatherings God managed to grace us with strength in our partners, CFO volunteers signing up for summer evangelism at local fairs, over seas missions , starting new churches and outreaches to deliver the saving message of our Lord Jesus Christ!
We were so delighted to talk with Robyn Caruthers over the phone as we are keeping her in prayer as she continues to share the gospel as she travels over again this year to Russia and Poland taking 2,600 CFO supplies with her evangelizing team. She boldly stated to us on the phone saying, "I believe there is a revival on the horizon for Poland."
In the US besides the amazing weekly reports of Jerry Hamlin sharing what God is doing in his ministry sharing the CFO colors to the Zomi people who are receiving Christ and opening new Zomi Churches in Oklahoma, we also have Daniel Trivett who continues to evangelize at major events in Eustis, Florida and is in direct connection with Pastor Luis and his wife Maira Suendens. Pastor Luis and his wife have started and lead 6 new churches that were mentioned in the 2015 CFO magazine last year that Donnie Benner and Daniel Trivett introduced the CFO witnessing supplies to. The 6 new churches are located in Florida, Missouri, Columbia, Venezuela, Brazil, and Puerto Rico. Maira explained the reason for the results is due to prayer. They have 2 prayer rooms and a prayer warrior team. Pastor Luis prays in Spanish as his wife translates to the others and this done before every evangelistic witnessing event and also before each service. She also expressed her deep appreciation for the CFO bracelets and Spanish tracts because they reaching out to hundreds who are receiving Jesus as savior and Lord. Maira and her husband invest their all in training the church body how to effectively share the gospel to others using the CFO supplies and showing them how to walk in their divine calling God has for their lives! Their ministry is focused mainly on the youth and families and it is evident of their ability to do all things through Christ who strengthens them.
Just think what God can do through you when you let him!
The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
Good news this past month as CFO workers have been fervently sharing God's everlasting love to the lost who are responding to the saving message of our Lord Jesus Christ! With 12 events taking place in the US from Pennsylvania, Virginia, Georgia, New York, Maryland, Oklahoma, and Ohio and over seas in England the message of the colors continue reaching out as we later hear the joyful results.
One of many testimonies of God drawling the lost to Himself with his loving kindness is through our dear brother in Christ, Jerry Hamlin in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He writes to us saying,
The population of Maynmar refugees in Tulsa is growing rapidly. Most of them are Zomi people from Chin State. It's estimated that there are over 3,500 in Tulsa now. There are also 6 Zomi Churches in the Tulsa surrounding area.
Here is the opportunity: There is a national meeting of Zomi Church Leaders here in Tulsa the 3rd weekend of June. There I will be able to share the CFO wristbands and bead bracelets with the tracts so they will be equip to evangelize in their area!
These two sisters Kimpi and Sangi from Myanmar were so happy t o hear about Jesus
and receive the CFO wristbands and bead bracelets with the CFO tract.
(Joel 2:28 & Acts 2:17)
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
It's been such an incredible month! We have successfully printed out two new translated tracts in the Hebrew and Arabic language as both are being currently used in Israel. Our dear brother in Christ, Patrick McCarthy and his wife Roni are witnessing in the heart of Israel this month using both the Hebrew and Arabic CFO tracts along side with their large ministry team. Patrick and Roni also took Russian tracts with them because they also will be ministering to a large group of Russian Jewish people there in Israel! Please keep them in prayer for their safety as we are believing God for epic results.

CFO treasures those who contact us and share their testimony of how they came to know Jesus as savior and Lord through the CFO tracts. We have a praise report from one that touched our heart and are excited to share with you all.
"Hello, my name is Jennifer Swank. I recently found one of your tracts lying in a bus terminal that I was in. Something told me to pick up the tract so I did and took it home to read it. It was inside the tract that I learned what the colors mean and what it really means to accept Jesus into your heart. I felt something inside me shift and I knew that this wasn't something to be taken lightly. So right then and there I got on my knees and asked Jesus into my heart. I now know that finding that tract wasn't just an accident, and that God had it planned. In the tract I saw something about a book called Beginning Again and the New Believer's Bible. I'm writing this in hopes that possibly you could provide me with both of these materials and also a bead bracelet. I would greatly appreciate you help with this. Thank you, and may God continue to richly bless this ministry.
In closing we give you Jennifer a personal thank you for sharing that testimony and it is a delight to us knowing of your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ! We continue to pray for you and many others for protection and growth as we are anticipating all that God will do through you from now on.
February and March Update:
"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."
Mark 16:15 (KJV)
Greeting from the CFO Office on a cold Spring morning. The Lord is moving mightily through this ministry. There are times when we are not sure we can keep up. But God knows the work to be done and all that is accomplished is His doing.
Here are just a few pictures from a recent fair in North Carolina, The Southern Farm Show. What a blessing this event is each year. Young people flock to the CFO booths. They are drawn in because they want to know more about the Lord and the message of the Gospel we share via the bead ministry. In one day we saw 315 decisions to accept Christ as savior. More than 500 people accepted Christ as their Savior during the three day show.
Prayer and Praise:
- Praise for CFO's time at Eurocon 2015. We helped 33 countries with their outreaches. 1,475 pastors and laypeople from all over the globe attended. CFO was able to speak to all attendees in one of the sessions and spent days in a booth helping those new to the ministry and the message through the beads.
- Almost daily these past few weeks CFO has been filling requests for supplies.
- In addition to those helped at Eurocon, praises for being able to come alongside 16 outreaches all over the world and across the United States. Haiti to Honduras; California to Virginia; England to Hungary; North Carolina to Michigan.
- Praises that the CFO Luncheon was a great time, despite the snowy weather. More than 200 people came and it was very apparent that the Lord blessed our gathering.
- With God nothing is wasted. We expected 600. All of the leftover food went to two area shelters and helped feed those in need, especially important during this very cold and snowy winter.
- The new luncheon location was wonderful! Plenty of room for 600 or more next year!
- Praises for all those who were reached through the February outreaches partnering with CFO across the country and around the globe.
- Pray for the planning of upcoming outreaches and Spring and Summer events.
- Thank you for the prayers during the recent trip to EuroCon 2015. Jack and Wilson will return just a day before speaking at our local Prayer Breakfast.
- Pray for continued wisdom for the Board and leadership of CFO as we look forward to
getting out the wonderful gospel of Jesus.
"Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course,
and be glorified, even as it is with you." II Thessalonians 3:1
Even as the calendar turned from 2014 to 2015, God was busy working in the lives of CFO volunteers around the country and the globe.
We've seen four outreaches in Pennsylvania request a combined total of 3,500 tracts, 1,400 wristbands, and 1,700 rawhides. Amazing what big things God can do with those who are willing to serve Him even in small ways.
Friends in Shelburne, New Hampshire requested 100 wristbands and tracts to do personal evangelism in their community.
New volunteers in Clinton, North Carolina, took 1,000 rawhides, 800 English tracts, and 200 Spanish tracts to a youth event called Rise Up Conference. We expect great testimonies from this outreach.
A longtime volunteer from Pennsylvania requested 1,500 rawhides and 1,500 Spanish tracts to share Christ with the lost during a mission trip to the Dominican Republic.
And a church in Virginia has a large outreach to their local Hispanic community and requested 800 Spanish tracts and 800 beaded rawhides.
Christian Farmers Outreach partners with so many amazing ministries, individuals, and outreaches here in the states and around the globe.
Let us share a quote from a recent e.mail sent to us from a devoted volunteer, Jerry Hamlin. Jerry introduced the CFO bead ministry into the training programs used by Reaching Souls International, a global outreach based in Oklahoma.
"Dear Wilson and CFO: Your salvation bracelets and tracts had a large part in this soul harvest. – Jerry"
Please read about the amazing results this outreach had in 2014.
6,000,000 souls came to know Christ through the efforts of RSI and CFO played an integral part in God's plan! How does one even comprehend such amazing results?!?
We at CFO are blessed beyond measure and in total awe of how God uses our ministry to partner with outreaches like this.

From Friend of CFO, Doug Nelson regarding a recent outreach trip to Peru:
"We here at Mayor Gracia de Peru want to thank the Christian Farmers Outreach for the vision, the detailed work and self-sacrifice, the encouragement they give us, the generosity of their hearts and willingness to participate with us as we bring the gospel to the many places in Peru that we go. Your provision of bracelets and tracts is an integral part of what we do. The bracelets are a visible and tangible representation of the gospel message we bring. They are a lasting reminder of the truths we speak of so the message continues long after we are gone."
"We have a dedicated team that knows Jesus personally and has a deep desire to share the love they have received with whosoever will listen, wherever they may be. It can be in a taxi on the way to church or on the sidewalk on the way to get groceries. People here are easy to talk with and are open to receive the gospel of grace. We carry with us the bracelets & tracts whenever we go out individually. As a team we are taking short mission trips to cities and places in and around Lima, usually a 1 to 3 hour bus ride, sometimes overnight. For some on the team this is expensive and represents a real financial sacrifice. You also know how real this is with your own financial sacrifices."
In the picture above, "Jennifer is sharing with three young men approximately 13 years old, Diego, Gianmarco and Jesus. All three were saved that day. Diego was rescued from the Rastafarians. Gianmarco and Jesus had never known Christ while Diego was told in Sunday School that he would go to hell for his behavior and never knew God's love. He left the Christian church as soon as he could. Jennifer was the first person to really share God's grace with Him. The bracelets make sharing so comfortable. The message is received with clarity and understanding and joy."
"These fields are truly ripe for harvest. Salvation has come to this country and the people are receiving the grace of God. It is a pleasure to watch God at work and be a part of what he is doing."
"You, at Christian Farmers Outreach can take great joy in what you are providing with the bracelets, tracts and prayer. We love what you have given us. You provide an effective tool that is bringing the gospel message to Peru. Thank you"
John 9:4 "I must work the works of Him that sent me, while it is day; the night cometh when no man can work."
Prayer & Praise:
- We are working around the world to win lost souls who are now turning to Jesus!
- The 2015 Magazine is in the designers hands!
- Many are responding to Jesus at the fairs.
- We have a new board member, Lou Enoff.
- Pray that the magazine is widely read.

We met with the director of Billy Graham Crusade. He told CFO to go as far as we can as fast as we can, because in the U.S it seems to be getting harder to reach people with the Gospel while in many other countries it is getting better.
CFO's ministry is going strong. People are hurting and really searching. They come to us wherever we are to hear the Gospel. September Salvations:

At the 1st Baptist Church in Altoona, Pennsylvania, where there is a large Hispanic population, an outreach uses the Spanish tract to reach as many as possible for Christ.
An outreach in Ohio took 1,000 wristbands and 1,000 tracts to use in prisons and schools.
In Baltimore Harbor another outreach requested 500 rawhide bracelets and 500 tracts to share the Gospel with the crews of the Tall Ships as they arrive at port.
In addition, CFO helped support eight other outreaches during September.
Many return each year to the booths with stories of changed lives and gratitude for CFO's ministry.
Breanna came by the booth in the morning at West Lampeter Fair. She told us she prayed and received Jesus in 2013 at the CFO booth. When asked what that meant to her she said, "It means everything to me!" She is very active in her local church now and loves her walk with Christ. We asked to take her picture so we could share her story with others and she nicely declined, saying no. Later that evening she returned to the booth. "I would like you to take my picture and you can put it the magazine too!" She is not ashamed of the Gospel and is just one of thousands who return to the booths each year to say thank you for being there and helping them find Jesus.
As summer ends and we look to the fall season we think of the traditional farm harvest season. CFO is praying for and reaching out to the fields of souls who are ready to meet Jesus and learn of His gift of salvation. As the Bible says in John 4:35 (KJV): "Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest."
Special Prayer and Praise:
CFO continues to work around the world to win lost souls who are now turning to Jesus!
In July and August we helped support an amazing 11 International & 16 US outreaches.
Praises for the addition of tracts in the Tagalog and Hindi languages.
We now have translated the CFO tract into 18 languages.
Praises that our Summer fairs have all gone great!
Praises for the amazing returns seen by sharing the Gospel through the beads.
Pray for the upcoming late Summer/Early Fall events.
Pray for the development and publication process for the CFO Magazine.
Pray for continued wisdom for the Board and leadership of CFO as we look forward to
getting out the wonderful gospel of Jesus until He returns.
Testimony (see above picture):
Tom and his family were walking past the Maryland State Fair Booth around the closing time. They seemed in a hurry but glanced into the booth. A CFO volunteer reached out to them and asked if they would take a minute to hear a message. The wife said "No, but we love what you do here." Wilson asked if her if knew without a doubt that if something happened to her would she be in Heaven with the Lord." "Yes!" The husband leaned in and also said Yes! "And you know why? A year ago we came by your CFO booth, listened to the Gospel message and all four of us got saved!" They are now involved in a great community church near their home in Edgewood. This is why CFO does these booths....to change the lives and the eternity of families like Tom's! We Share Because We Care!
Praise The Lord for 2014
Month of July
Galtions 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing for we shall reap if we faint not.
CFO is reaping results, now in 79 International countries! The three new countries are Bolivia, Uruguay, and Paraguay. Also in July we've helped Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Venezuela, Nepal, China, Germany, and Honduras reach people for Christ.
Here in the US, we helped 9 different outreaches leading the lost to Christ.
Our local CFO Events in Maryland-Carroll County Fair/Harford County Fair and Pennsylvania/Mason Dixon Fair had rewarding results of many decisions accepting Christ.
We have hundreds of people who come back to tell us their appreciation for leading them to Christ each year. One of the many testimonies at these events was a young man named Mark Brown who visited the CFO booth at the Carroll County Fair here in MD. Mark received Christ just the year before from a CFO worker who led him to Christ there at the booth, he came back this year to share how things have been since that day. He expressed his appreciation and said to us, "I know the Lord is always with me."
CFO upcoming events are as follows :
West Virginia State Fair – August 8th-16th
Ag Progress Days/PA. – August 12th-14th

Month of June
I Timothy 6:12 "Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses."
June begins our summer events season and has been filled with exciting testimonies from outreaches across the country.
Every ministry item shipped out of the CFO office – tracts, bracelets, rawhides, follow-up books – is used to personally share the message of God's Grace and His plan of salvation for all.
June 7th was the Annual CFO Workday. Near perfect weather and a crowd of hardworking volunteers prepared CFO for the many upcoming events where walking sticks are used.
We celebrated with our volunteers and their families on June 14th at the Annual CFO Family Picnic. Amazing weather, delicious food, great music from the Carroll County Ramblers, and testimonies from near and far made this event one of the year's highlights.
As we write this update CFO is preparing to head to a week-long missions conference in Baltimore where thousands of tracts and bracelets will be given out to those who share the Gospel all over this globe. If we pause for a moment and consider the number of lives touched and the compounding effect had by adding those they in turn reach for Christ, the numbers are staggering. The salvation message is going to the far corners of the earth...east to west, north to south.
Shipments have gone out to international outreaches in El Salvador and Burundi. Domestic outreaches supported include locations in Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Oklahoma, and two in Maryland.
Upcoming summer events include: Mason Dixon Fair, Carroll County 4-H & FFA Fair, and Alabama's Deer Expo. Please be praying for those who will be working in the booths at all of our upcoming summer events. Also pray for all who will walk by the booths that they will follow the calling to hear the Gospel message and receive Christ as their savior.
Below is a report from one of the mission trips we supported last month…God can use ALL of our efforts:
"I wanted to get back to you with a report of our Haiti Medical Mission Trip as I promised. We went to St. Martain, Haiti, May 17-24, 2014. Our church, Four Mile, Beaver, PA, partnered with Haiti H2O - and organization located in Pittsburgh. We partner with them to go to this area every other year…the emphasis of this trip was to bring a medical clinic to St. Martain. Our team fund-raised to obtain finances for the medications. We held our clinic, at the church in St. Martain from May 20-22, and saw 609 Haitian patients from newborn babies to the elderly! Our 15 member mission team worked this clinic from 8:00 AM to approximately 5:00 PM each day. Needless to say we were all quite fatigued - but extremely blessed by God to be a part of this medical mission. The Haitians would line up, at 6:00 AM, just to be sure they could get seen. The absolute best part of this mission- was not just the medical care- but the sharing of the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Once the patient got their medication, they went to the last station where a team member and our Pastor- George Atkins- would present the Gospel, the Christian Farmers Outreach bracelet- Creole handout, and pray over them for healing and good health. Of course we had interpreters at each station so communication was understood by all. The generosity of your providing 600 bracelets enabled us to give each patient a tangible remembrance- of not just the medical care- but the One who provided for them- Jesus! We can't thank you enough for helping us make this mission a successful one with the donation of the bracelets!" Ginny Holbein

Month of May
II Thessalonians 3:1 "Finally brethren, pray for us that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified…"
The month of May has been filled with requests for materials from outreaches all over the United States.
Almost 16,000 pieces went out – wristbands, rawhides, tracts, and walking sticks – and each piece has the potential to reach a lost soul for Christ. And each person reached will reach others. The impact in unimaginable!!
We also came alongside two international outreaches – one in Caracas, Venezuela and the other in St. Marten, Haiti.
In the United States we helped 14 different outreaches from Florida to Texas to West Virginia and many in between.
In York, Pennsylvania we are partnering with Teen Challenge and New Life for Girls where they have requested 600 bracelets and tracts (English and Spanish) so they can share the Gospel with each and every young person who comes through their ministry.
And we even sent ministry materials to a volunteer in Las Vegas, Nevada who is reaching out to the lost there.
And here is a report from one of our ministry partners in Virginia, Bob Norman:
I love the places that we go to share the gospel, in the towns such as Mullins, West Virginia…n the beautiful mountains in which we shared Jesus Christ to the lost. It was so awesome to see people standing around in groups four and five receiving Jesus Christ as their Savior, then leaving to get their friends and bring them over to us so we could share Jesus Christ .Gary Walker, John Camp and I were there for the first night for about two hours. We had 30 decisions for Christ. Praise the Lord. We had a total of 77 that received Christ for the week and we are so thankful for that.
White Sulfur Springs Dandelion Festival. we lead 109 to the Lord, it was so good to see people interested in knowing how to share the gospel as well, a 60-year-old man came to me and wanted me to teach him how to share the gospel, so he could share with his friends. This is also part of our ministry, so that people who come to Christ will share Jesus with other friends and family .This is Gary's text at five in the morning on Sunday, May 25, 2014 the day after the festival, this text sums it up.
"(I woke at 4:45am, couldn't sleep. Praying and praising God for what HE did in White Sulphur Springs this weekend.109 people received Jesus as Savior!!! I still see many of the faces of children & adults that I spoke with. If you were here you would see a grown man cry. I'm just overwhelmed by it all. God's love, grace, and power are beyond comprehension! To be allowed to serve HIM is the highest honor I could ever receive on earth. 109 names added to the Lamb's book of Life!!! Hallelujah! Praise God for the miracle that He has done. Thank you Jesus for allowing me to be a tiny part of it!)"
Many who we talked with chose not to receive Jesus as their Savior. They left knowing how to receive Him. Many were under conviction; you could see it in their eyes. We pray they will receive Him soon!
The number who have received Jesus as there Savior this year: 287 Praise God!
Praise The Lord for 2014

"A Mother's Answered Prayer" Angele Courieton brought her daughter Darby in to hear the message. Darby accepted Christ after hearing the message of the beads. Tears flowed from Angele's eyes as her daughter prayed and willingly gave her heart to Christ.

Month of March
PRAISE THE LORD FOR ALL HE HAS DONE IN THE MONTH OF MARCH
The Glory of His Grace – 1 Peter 5:10 "But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you."
This year's luncheon was powerful and had amazing results for our Lord's. Many, many lives were changed, testimonies were shared from Baltimore to Iran, speaker Richard Bernstein shared an inspiring message, and donations were double what we've seen in the past, We ran out of bags for volunteers who wanted to string beads on rawhides. And the follow up to the yellow cards is well underway.
This year at EuroCon we shared the bead ministry with more than 1,400 people from more than 40 countries. Those who attend are pastors and laypeople.
This year's event was awesome. Countries used to ask us for 50 – 100 tracts for their evangelism work. This year they asked for 1,000s. Albania is just one of many grand examples of this increase, asking for 2,000 tracts and wristbands! In Albania only three tenths of one percent of the population is Christian yet they have an incredible desire to reach their nation. Powerful! Think of all of the lives who will be reached for Jesus through this outreach. It is almost unimaginable how much the CFO ministry has increased over the past three years.
As you know from the news, the conflict between Russia and the Ukraine, but at EuroCon the Russian delegation and the Ukrainian delegation met together and prayed for the unison in their two countries. The power of unity felt during this meeting was beyond anything political leaders could accomplish.
In March we helped 48 outreaches around the world. Every one of the organizers are excited to reach out to people for the Lord and to share His gospel message.
Praise The Lord for 2014
Month of February
PRAISE THE LORD FOR ALL HE HAS DONE IN THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY
Mark 15:16 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world,
and preach the gospel to every creature.”
We heard exciting testimonies at our 27th Annual Luncheon.
We are working around the world to win lost souls that are now turning to Jesus!
In February we helped support a big outreach in Turkey and other International and domestic outreaches.
In Eustis, Florida we are helping six churches with their evangelism outreaches. We are also part of a ranch
for fatherless boys. They train these young men using the colors to reach out for Christ.
Please pray for the upcoming travel to Budapest to EuroCon 2013 where CFO will be training more than
1,500 pastors and lay people from 35 different countries how to reach out, in their own language, using the bead ministry.
Pray for continued wisdom for the Board and leadership of CFO

Month of December
PRAISE THE LORD FOR ALL HE HAS DONE IN THE MONTH DECEMBER
II Thessalonians 3:1 “Finally brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course,

In 2013 CFO expanded into seven new countries. Iran, Belize, Jamaica,Oman, Burkina Faso,
Ivory Coast, and South Korea. We translated the CFO tract into two new languages: Farsi and Turkish.
We now have available 16 translations of the CFO tract.
We are still expanding with the Gospel of Christ into many new areas in the United States.
Matching Fund Was Successful! The success of the CFO Matching Fund is exciting because these additional
monies will help reach many more people with the Gospel. We believe greater things are yet to come
and want to see even more lives than ever transformed by Jesus in 2014!
Christian Farmers wants to wish everyone a wonderful, happy, and prosperous 2014!
“Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”.
PRAISE THE LORD FOR ALL HE HAS DONE IN THE MONTH NOVEMBER
Scripture verse, Isaiah 55-11 "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
We in Christian Farmers stand on this verse.
November has been a great month. Finally the Farsi tract is printed; the magazine has gone out;
and the Matching Fund donation letter is out. We have helped very large outreachs in international countries such as Columbia (South America), Peru, Nicaragua, Turkey, Germany, and Russia
. In the United States we have helped with outreachs in Virginia, California, two in North Carolina,
two in Maryland including five in Baltimore, and many others.
This is what the Lord has called CFO to do. Share with people the PRICE Jesus paid for us
on the cross and give people a chance to respond to Him. I Tim 2-4: "Who will have all men to be saved,
and to come unto the knowledge of the truth"
PRAISE THE LORD FOR ALL HE HAS DONE IN THE MONTH OCTOBER
For we are not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ!
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation
to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” Romans 1:16
Praise the Lord for the remarkable month CFO has experienced! We have completed another ministry magazine "2014" edition filled with inspiring testimonies, changed lives, and how God has greatly moved through our devoted CFO workers reaching the lost for Jesus!
CFO’s Outreaches In USA
The highlight of the month of October were the results of CFO workers sharing the gospel at the North Carolina State Fair a total of 780 people who made a decision to accept Jesus as Savior and Lord! More good news to add, there were 362 decisions made unto salvation at the Buck Wheat Festival in West Virginia, and the Fall Festivity- Bethel Assembly of God Church lead 36 people to Jesus in just one night all through the CFO gospel tracts with the color bead bracelets!
We also give God a special thanks for the CFO workers who shared the gospel at the Solanco and West Lampeter events where 100's got to hear the message of salvation and many came to accept Jesus into their heart and lives. Here is a glimpse of one person who visited the Solanco Fair, just one of many who's lives are reached by the CFO workers sharing the gospel...
- Richard age 86 came to the Solanco Fair on his motorcycle and while there he saw the CFO booth and went in to hear the message. When he accepted Jesus into his heart after the worker in the booth shared to him, Richard explained that earlier he didn't know why he came to the Solanco Fair, but after receiving Jesus into his heart he said he knows exactly why he came there!
Most of the Fairs and Shows are coming to an end but many CFO workers are still calling in making request for more witnessing supplies to reach the lost through out the remainder of the year. We are teamed up with Baltimore Outreach on Monument Street with Leah and Pastor Fred and their ministry team leaders from Greater Grace Church as well as Marvina Greene in the Baltimore, MD outreach from Grace Baptist Church. Also CFO continues in Towson, MD with Jacquelyn Gornish took the gospel through the color beads reaching out to prostitutes on the streets leading them to Christ!
In Waterford, VA Joshua's Hands ministry invited Bob Cochas another faithful CFO worker who went and shared the gospel through the color beads to many. And in Eustis, Florida Brother Daniel Trivett is making tremendous progress spreading the gospel with the CFO color beads and gospel tracts along with him training and encouraging others on how to share the message more effectively.
In North Carolina CFO is blessed with Dennis and Annette Cash who not only use the CFO witnessing supplies but also have trained others in their community and Church groups to share the gospel by using the color beads and tracts. Annette also is one of CFO's bead stringers that is greatly needed for this ministry to thrive. She was successful in organizing both youth groups and the elders in a Senior Citizen's home to join in this ministry by helping us with stringing beads on the raw hides that are used both in the US and around the world for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ!
CFO’s International Outreach
Marie Winters an RN from New Wilmington, PA (From New Life Baptist Church) who was in last years magazine with a powerful testimony from her missions trip to Haiti and Dominican Republic is once again going on another medical missions trip taking with her the CFO witnessing supplies as we keep her in prayer as she reaches out to the hurting and lost.
Pastor Drew Wileczek will also be going to the Philippines and Thailand again this year like many years before, taking 3,000 rawhides and wristbands with tracts evangelizing the gospel in those two countries. We also keep him and many others in our prayers while we are looking forward to the eternal results!
Upcoming CFO ministry’s New Feature
Still in progress and under reconstruction, CFO will in the future have a new Face Book page for our views to enjoy. We are blessed to have our dear Sister in Christ Lisa Nolen and her husband Joseph who not only support our ministry but is our Coordinator in Alabama Deer and Turkey Sporting Show. Lisa is assisting us by managing our upcoming Face Book with new pictures and powerful testimonies of the lives who came to know Jesus through our workers in CFO around the world.
PRAISE THE LORD FOR ALL HE HAS DONE IN THE MONTH SEPTEMBER
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think,
according to the power that works in us…”
According to Ephesians 3:20 God has been exceeding our faith in Him in this ministry and the expansion that has taken place. We called on Him as Jeremiah 33:3 God instructed us to do and He showed us great and mighty things over these past 10 months as He promised and sent workers to reach out to the lost as we are seeing the monthly results.
This month of September we are putting together in our magazine how we are reaching out in 76 international countries
and here in the US revealing numerous of hearts turning to Jesus and receiving their eternal salvation.
Here locally we just completed…
Maryland State Fair .... 415 salvation decisions
Ag Progress Days .... 162 salvation decisions
York Fair PA .... 227 salvation decisions
“The Joy of One receiving Salvation”
A short time ago working in the booth at the Maryland State Fair, two ladies came into the booth.
One lady’s husband wouldn’t come in, so one of the workers went to him instead. As they talked together the man said,
“I am Jewish, I didn’t think you would want to talk to me about Jesus.” The worker said, “I would like to talk to you about Jesus.” They had a wonderful talk and the Jewish man committed his life to Jesus! At the same moment John, the other worker in the booth was sharing to the Jewish man’s wife and she and her friend accepted Jesus! There was tremendous emotion and hugging that day.
Then later that day 3 more ladies came into the booth. It was a Grandmother, daughter, and granddaughter who in the booth got to hear the message of salvation. They all wanted to pray and get saved. The Grandmother said with joy, “Three generations came to know Jesus tonight!”
Without God’s blessing and the support of your prayers and gifts, there is little CFO could have done.
It is in the Grace of God that has allowed us to reach so many people.
