I've been a supporter of Gospel for Asia for several years now with my tithes and gifts and I must say honestly that they are the best bunch of people I've ever partnered with. They are even like a second family who I pray with and feel I know. I do not exaggerate when I say that as a non-profit charity organization they have the very highest standards of integrity, accountability and cost-effectiveness. And what our Lord achieves through them every day of every year is mind-bogglingly miraculous. I had supported church and charity before, but I wanted to do more, and I remember praying and searching for the Lord to lead me and help me find a missionary organization which would satisfy my highest standards and make every cent of my contribution go the very furthest towards furthering His Kingdom here on earth. When I found GFA, I knew I had to look no further.

I served with Gospel for Asia for 10 years, during which I believed that I was the most privileged person on earth to give my life away for the sake of the lost and serve under leadership so completely sold out to the Lord, in touch His heart, and full of integrity. The last several years I was on staff, I saw more and more from leadership that was unbiblical, teaching became opinion over Scripture, and control was suffocating. In spite of confusion and believing submission to leadership had become an idol over serving Christ Himself, I steadfastly stood by the integrity of leadership, however they had gone astray. I have since seen more instances of outright lies, deceit, and manipulation than I could believe previously or can even count and have lost every iota of respect for leadership or belief in any integrity whatsoever. I am very sad to say that I cannot in good conscience recommend spending a single penny with this organization, as I am no longer convinced that much of the income even reaches the intended recipients. I am not bitter, just extremely grieved to see spiritual pride and sin reigning where Jesus alone desires and deserves to be!

Please listen to what former staff are saying about this organization. They have lived it!! And some would call it a cult, with its authoritarian culture that leads to spiritual abuse and broken families and now it's episcopalian structure that you won't see until you go to India where KP is known as His Emminence the Most Reverend Metropolitan Bishop, revered and bowed down to. Donors and sponsors have a right to know these things but they have purposefully lied and hidden these realities. Over 100 staff that have left the ministry over the last few years have been pleading for greater accountability and transparency. www.gfadiaspora.com
Donors are being fed on books like Revolution in World Missions but although it started out well it has now become a money making machine. I served for many years and valued much of what I saw being accomplished through national missionaries. But in the end I had to leave because of the lack of integrity of the leadership itself.
You need to ask hard questions to find out where the money is really going. "100 percent goes to the mission field" is the claim, but what does that really mean?? I can tell you - once it's gone overseas they do whatever they want with it!! Do your research...GFA is not what it appears.

This organization is hoarding more than a hundred million dollars overseas in cash, and has diverted large amounts of donor funds to hospitals in already-wealthy areas in contradiction to its mission to help the "poorest of the poor."

I am the Director of Missions for the LEPC, and also volunteer in California for events and have also represented them by speaking at minister conventions and other events. I also have been supporting five missionaries and working with the GFA since 2008 and believe they are doing an outstanding job in reaching the poorest of the poor in India. I highly recommend them as a worthy ministry to support financialy.

After Many investigations personally, globally and through wires I found GFA and their National movement called Believers Church is the best philanthropic organization in Asia with their expert-ism in all they do.

I knew Gospel For Asia and Believers Church and found if that the hands of God was always with them.No ministry in India could reach to this place with in 35 years of service. Without any doubt I will say it is God who sustain. No other ministries ever had to face such a massive attack from all direction ( Government, people who profess to be spiritual, people with spiritual languages, people who are born to become the accuser of brethren and people who had wrong motive etc) but I could see always God is standing with them and fighting for them. They have high grade of financial integrity and absolute trustworthiness of all money people send. They are a history makers for sure . I have high regard for it's metropolitan and leaders, they are simple people but honest and committed. As an outsider I watched them so carefully and stand in awe of God. As an Indian it's very hard to praise someone but I have high regard for them. I always pray that they may stay blessed for to be a blessings for millions to find hope and love

About 25 years ago I read the book Revoloution in world missions byK.P.Yohannan and became a sponsor of native missions.The fact that 100% of the support goes directly to the field was a huge factor for me.Thru the years I have watched GFA grow and expand their work and see the fruit of their labor in real,verifiable, life changing,culture changing ,misery relieving ways.Recently I went to India and was able to view the work,talk with the brothers and see the fruit first hand.I have been sold on GFA for many years ,now I'm excited about it and it's a huge part of my thinking constantly .

We have supported GFA for over twenty years. I could not recommend a more worthy organization on the planet. KP is the real deal. He has a heart and vision to reach the lost, and God has advanced and honored his faithfulness. What other organization can you give to - where 100% of the funds are reaching the field and not consumed by ministry overhead cost? The whole economic model for how it works makes so much sense. Native missionaries are the most effective way of advancing the Gospel period. I had the opportunity recently to spend some time with other donors and volunteers abroad in the field seeing the work up close and personal , and I could not have been more encouraged with what I observed. If there were a way to give them 10 stars instead of 5 on this review I would.

This organization acts with the highest of integrity. Every penny makes a great difference for good to impact the lives of others in Southeast Asia. All that Gospel for Asia does is led by prayer and all for the glory of Jesus Christ.
