Site Announcements

If you are not already a paid CFBRAA member I want to encourage you to become one.
Our association is doing good things and helping out many with special needs and scholarships.
We aren't doing as much as we would like to do and not as much as one would expect, especially if you or someone you are close to are in need of financial help.
We are limited by the funds we have available, so what we can do is modest compared to the needs.

Here is what we were able to accomplish this year with less than 300 paid members:
1. Helped 15 families in crisis situations, providing medical help, housing, utilities, clothing, etc. You provided nearly $11K in crisis support to families.
2. Helped 9 alumni families send their children to college, providing $6K in scholarship assistance.
3. Helped scores of new alumni with transportation, providing $4K for vehicle maintenance and fuel for the Alumni Support Center.
4. Provided $500 to the residents of the Alumni Support Center to help with Christmas presents for their families.
5. Provided $500 to the homes at BR as awards for the Christmas Contest winners.

Mr. Rohrs passed away April 9th and services were held for him on April 13th in Bolivar, Mo. While it is very sad to lose him, it was quite an occasion for celebration, knowing where his "new ranch" is located. The multiple stages of his life were represented by a good turn out of those he has helped and blessed. Mona, Becky, Alvin, and Randy are steadfast and strong, rejoicing in Mr. Rohrs' new home and abundant life. I personally know of no other man who worked at Cal Farley's Boys Ranch who is more responsible for the "Christian revival and growth" than he. Many of us can now claim the hope that we have in Jesus because of Mr. Rohrs' sacrifice and work on our behalf. Until we meet again .... let the Peace of God rule our hearts.

During his career he helped change the lives of and share the gospel with over 1,500 Boys.

Danny,

You have spoken very well about Mr. Rohrs. Hi is responsible for me accepting Jesus. He bought some new bibles to sell at the country store. I had to promise to read my bible every day and that caused me to begin to feel incomplete. I went to Mr. Rohrs and he lead me to Jesus. I will miss him as I have since we both left the ranch. I do rejoice though, He is with our wonderful saviour and there is nothing that can compare.

It was good to see your post regarding Mr. Rohrs. At the funeral, we had several of the kids from Good Samaritan Boys Ranch but none from Cal Farleys. I know it has been quite some time since he was there and I know there are many boys who have liked to have attended had they known about it. We need to get together sometime .... you apparently live in Royce City and I am in Rowlett .... not far away. In the Lord's "Amazing Grace", Danny

Danny,

I have moved from Royse City and now live on my 20 acres at Lake O the Pines. A little over 100 miles east. I simply have not updated facebook since I retired and moved. I plan to attend the Dallas gathering in Feb. Part of why I haven't updated is because I have been hospitalized five times since May. That and just recently having gotten internet service again.

I had wanted to attend the funeral, but I just did not have the means to do so. Were you aware that I had worked at Good Samaritan with him in '72 after you had left there?
