Honoring Baxter Loe

Posted by & filed under Child Sponsorship.

This Christmas season we’re remembering Baxter Loe who founded CRF after John Abraham, a preacher he met in India, starved to death waiting for help.

Baxter was just awarded a posthumous “Certificate of Christian Service” from Lubbock Christian University’s Institute of Missions. The award is truly deserved by this great man of God who gave hope to so many through his life and even more through his legacy. Donate today to continue Baxter’s legacy ›
