GFA World Expanding Ministry to Africa

WILLS POINT, TX — GFA World (Gospel for Asia) has spent more than 40 years sharing the love of Jesus and ministering to the needs of millions of people in more than a dozen countries in South Asia.

The COVID-19 pandemic engendered extreme hardships for the people in those countries during 2020. Families already faced with marginal resources experienced an unparalleled scarcity of food as supply chains broke down and residents were restricted to their homes. Millions of people living on a meager daily wage suddenly found themselves without a job, an income, and hope.

2020 Was a Good Year

The difficulties of 2020 preeminently published by the media reached around the globe. The year presented obstacles at nearly every turn for the entire population, including GFA World.

However, looking from Heaven’s perspective, the Lord blessed GFA World in 2020 with a year of opportunities and open doors.

Opportunities

GFA World is a faith-based ministry committed to serving the people who are numbered among “the least of these.”

As soon as GFA-affiliated national workers in South Asia began to realize the early stages of the imminent crisis and the rapidly increasing need to stave off the onslaught of starvation, they moved into action. Local pastors reached out to community leaders to obtain permission to obtain and distribute foodstuffs to needy families. In some cases, not only did they gain permission, but local officials often accompanied them in their efforts.

As this was happening across South Asia, GFA World opened the doors of its headquarter campus in Wills Point, Texas, as a distribution point for the Farm to Families food program. Texas families received tens of thousands of pounds of food and milk on multiple occasions.
