What Christian Leaders are Saying about Gospel for Asia
Gospel for Asia (GFA World) is a nonprofit founded in 1979 committed to serving “the least of these” in Asia. GFA supports national field workers who in turn bring the love of Christ to those living in rural and under-served areas. Whether it’s providing the opportunity for a brighter future for a child in Asia through their Bridge of Hope program or giving away a sewing machine to help a family generate income, GFA has stood by its mission to transform communities through the love of Christ, one individual at a time.
After serving in ministry for nearly 40 years, GFA has had the opportunity to make an impact both overseas and at home. Here’s what 24 Christian leaders and donors are saying about Gospel for Asia and it’s founder KP Yohannan:
“[On my trip], I learned that the far reaching effect of GFA’s work in South Asia is beyond what I imagined. … I really saw God’s hands and feet in the GFA missionaries. I learned that this is an extremely well-run ministry to God’s glory. … You can see God’s blessing on the ministry with much fruit of labor and finances to enable the work on the ground.
“I heard firsthand about lives changed in young missionary men and women and in children’s lives and their families’.
“I saw the gifts of bikes and sewing machines used to change lives for people.
“I was touched by the overriding image of Jesus’ love for the people glowing from the missionaries in each ministry we visited. I felt myself responding to the people I met with God’s love flowing through me in a new and meaningful way.
“I was impacted greatly seeing the surrendering of people to Christ to do His work. Seeing God’s work in people’s lives reminded me what He can do in my own life with a fully surrendered heart.”
— Barbara Dowling, sales manager at 93.7 Faith FM, Ontario, Canada
“I traveled to South Asia and discovered Gospel for Asia has been uniquely raised up ‘for such a time as this.’ Only God’s sovereign power could explain how ‘earthen vessels’ make such a dramatic difference. …
“The faces of shining students receiving love reflect the dynamic difference the Holy Spirit makes. An elderly man was jumping for joy because of the dignity restored to him in empowering him to provide for himself. A single mother enabled to support her family was teaching 15 other women a trade. Clean water in Jesus’ name is a marvel! I could go on and on to speak of the amazing Bible schools and the remarkable changes occurring. Suffice it to say, spending time with Brother K.P. personally reiterated to me that it is all so simple: God loves Asia, and He demonstrates it every day through GFA.”
— Rev. Jeff Lutes, president and founder of International Harvesters for Christ, Canada
