“What about those who have never heard of Jesus?”
Dear brother and sister,
The question is a difficult one that requires us to trust God for his fairness and power. Of course, we are all sinners who would deserve hell if it was not of the Grace of God freely offered to all in Jesus. But what if some were never given a chance to hear the Gospel and respond to it?
God “desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (1Ti 2:4) and we find examples in the Bible indicating that no one is beyond his reach. The three wise men were reached in their faraway country as we read in the story of Christmas (Matthew 2), and so was the eunuch of Ethiopia (Acts 8). Cornelius was instructed to send for Peter who “will declare to you a message by which you will be saved, you and all your household.” (Acts 11.14).
Nowadays, we still have people who, like Cornelius, are given dreams or visions leading them to Jesus or to a missionary who will present them the Gospel … because God is not “not wishing that any should perish” (2Peter 3.9). And I believe that FCFC is also a tool in God’s hands to bring salvation to many here in Canada and who would not have heard about the Gospel otherwise.
FCFC was again present at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto in November where the Gospel was shared with more than 4,000 visitors and where we distributed 1,650 New Testaments along with 800 Spark Magazines (which include the Gospel of John in a publication targeted to young people).
If you enjoy hearing how lives are being touched, I encourage you to read the Sower Magazine available on FCFC website. You will see how God is at work from British Columbia to the Maritimes: fcfcanada.org/sower/
All these efforts to reach the souls require funding. If you would like to help carry the financial load of 2019, I invite you to consider making a year-end donation through our website: fcfcanada.org/donate/. FCFC is accountable to the Canadian Council of Christian Charities.
Merry Christmas to you, and Praise be to God for giving us a wonderful Saviour.

Executive Director's Message
Welcome to the Fellowship of Christian Farmers – Canada
Wayne Clark, Executive Director
We appreciate your interest in exploring how God is using the Fellowship of Christian Farmers to further His Kingdom through marketplace evangelism. FCF follows our Lord’s example. Most of the recorded events in the gospels show Jesus teaching in the marketplace or workplace.
God has continued to bless the Fellowship in Canada. Each year new chapters are formed, more people are involved, more events covered, and thousands of people have heard the gospel in both English and French.
After two years of examining our records and bylaws, the Canadian Council of Christian Charities recognizes us as a certified member. This means that the Fellowship of Christian Farmers – Canada meets their high standards of integrity and accountability in organizational structure and financial management. We depend entirely on free-will offerings. All gifts, large and small, are appreciated. Official receipts are issued for income tax purposes.
We are truly thankful for all the people who give of their time, talents, and money to make this organization work. Together we can help meet the greatest need of mankind by presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ. FCF has a unique ministry. It is a personal interaction with people as they come.
There are more than 7,000 kilometres on that Trans-Canada Highway. There are a couple of thousand events out there which would have a place for an FCF witness. Pray the Lord of the Harvest that He would send workers!
How can they believe in Him if they have never heard about Him? And how can they hear about Him unless someone tells them? Romans 10:14 (NLT)
