2016 International Plowing Match

The Reformed Evangelical Outreach had a very good week at the International Plowing Match held September 20-24 in Wellington County near Harriston. Comfortable seasonal weather brought over 96,300 visitors through the gates! Only two other times in IPM history of 100 years did attendance reach 90,000!

The “tented” city streets were crowded which kept the nine workers busy handing out hundreds of Bibles and thousands of tracts, calendars, booklets and bookmarks – mostly to children.  We were encouraged by how many children do have their own Bible, and were thankful for those who reached out with willing hands to receive one. Our prayer is that God may be pleased to bless His Word to the children of Ontario for Jesus’ sake.

A variety of Christian books – including Bibles, devotionals, doctrinal books, commentaries, sermon – were sold.  Many discussions, questions and conversations regarding Christian books, true faith, and what it means to be Reformed, etc. occurred throughout the week.

The Reformed Evangelical Outreach thanks all volunteers donors, and churches who support this outreach with prayer and help financial assistance.

This years International Plowing Match hopes to be held in Huron County, Ontario (in the Seaforth area) from September 19 to 23, marking the Match’s 100th anniversary.
