My church has been involved with GFA for years, but I didn't have much personal experience with them until this year. I decided to take a gap year and join their student program, School of Discipleship. My experience here has not been anything like I expected, but it has been far better.
The Lord has worked in my life in many ways, especially through the love and guidance of the staff members. It feels like I have a whole new family here, who really love me and want to encourage me in the Lord.
Recently, our class was able to go on a two-week vision tour to see the work locally in Asia, and I was absolutely blown away. I've traveled a lot, so I didn't expect this trip to be anything really special, but once I met some of the pastors and Bible college students my whole perspective changed. The goal here at GFA is to show people the love of Jesus Christ, and to enable them to go out into their communities and share that same love. I feel incredibly blessed and humbled to be a part of that.

We have been involved with GFA for about 8 years. Anytime we had any questions or wanted additional information, the staff was more than willing to assist us. We first started as supporters and quickly became volunteers. The passion of the people at GFA for reaching the lost with Christ’s love is incredible. We have found the people at GFA to be honest and extremely hard working. Our experience has far exceeded anything we could have imagined when we first heard of GFA,

Having come to know several of the people at GFA on a personal level, we know this passion for reaching people with Christ’s love is genuine.

Probably no organization has impacted on our lives as much as GFA. We wholeheartedly recommend GFA to our family and friends. Please pray and consider getting involved.

I had heard great things about Gospel For Asia but it wasn't until recently that I got to see first hand what this ministry is all about. I had the privilege of going on one of their pastor tours and could not be more impressed by their ministry. They have a clear vision of what they are doing and they are pursuing that vision with passion and conviction. I strongly recommend supporting Gospel For Asia. Your money will not be wasted but used to further Christ's kingdom around the world.

I became a supporter of GFA a couple of years ago and since that time, I have come to realize that their gospel ministry extends beyond anything I could have previously imagined! GFA is passionately committed to extending the gospel of Christ to every nation, tribe, and tongue. By partnering with GFA, I am partnering with Jesus Christ in his mission to reach the lost. The more I learn about the ministry of GFA, the more I want to support them. Praise be to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit for such a ministry!

I knew I loved Gospel for Asia as soon as I read, "Revolution in World Missions". It made so much sense! I began sponsoring missionaries, later became a volunteer and even later became a student in their School of Discipleship program and have had the great privilege to spend the past nine months seeing how the organization works from the inside out, and let me tell you, it's all with integrity, grace and love. The main goal of all the staff is to know Jesus and give others the same opportunity.

I thought I understood that pretty well, but last month I had the opportunity to visit the mission field in South Asia and see with my own eyes how everything transfers from the U.S. to the field. It was remarkable. Now that I have seen these things first hand I am even more confident in investing both time and money into this organization. We were able to see so many different areas of the ministry and I just wanted to support all of it!

I graduate from the program in two months and though I won't be here physically I plan to find more ways I can volunteer and give more to this great work the Lord is doing! I will sincerely miss the staff here who have become like family to me!

This post is in response to post by 'Leaving'

It's pretty irresponsible to post negatives about something you admit you thought you might have heard. This organization receives enough persecution from those looking to do it harm. You won't take the time to ask the speaker to clear up what you thought you might have heard but you will take the time to slam them on this website. Isn't a child nursing from an animal enough to get your attention? whether or not the child is an orphan? I think you need to check your hearing. In his book "No longer a Slumdog" all of these stories are there. They are on the website also - easy to check out. I don't think he claims that many of them are orphans. Some are orphans, most of them have at least one parent. It's irrelevant because they are the lowest rung on the caste system in India which means they have no hope of doing anything with their lives. Only because of GFA have so many thousands been incredibly blessed because of God's work through this ministry. You are a very negative person and nit-picky about how you choose to see things. All the good GFA does over shadows any negatives but somehow you see it the opposite. You are a CHristian, with the love of Christ in your heart????? Need to look on the inside first and stop tearing down what God is doing through those whose lights truly shine bright and who actually get their hands dirty working for those in need and not just sit in a nice comfy church and decide on wishy-washy information that they are too lazy to check out who they will or won't take all the trouble to pull out their pen and write a check to.

If you find any real evidence of wrongdoing by GFA (and all the bogus negative reviews which amounts to persecution on various charity review sites is NOT evidence) then by all means tell the world until you have that please do something about your anger.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not DISHONOR OTHERS, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always PROTECTS, always TRUSTS, always HOPES, always perseveres.

One of the things that most impacted me was the missionaries' dependence on the Lord. They pray about all things and trust in the Lord. It was so neat to see how the Lord answered their prayers. Also, seeing their work among the poorest living in the slums was impactful. There are committed missionaries living in the slum, sharing the love of Jesus with those around them. I don't think I could do that so I'm grateful to be a part of sending them.

I am a missionary with another organization and a friend who supports GFA invited me to come to enhance my study of church planting movements. I am not a member of GFA or a volunteer but was blessed to have the opportunity to visit many locations across India. I was impressed with their sincere humility and desire to reach the unreached in this part of the world. They are getting the job done! People are being saved, rescued from their lifestyles, and churches are being established that seem to be reaching the communities. The organization was run efficiently. The number of churches, bridge of hope centers, Jesus wells dug and seminaries dedicated to training pastors and leaders was overwhelming. This is truly a church planting movement that is making a difference. I have encouraged friends to support this effort but I have not been able to start yet. Bro. K P is such a personable guy with a great tenacity to see things through for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ. His book Revolution of World Missions has inspired me to be open to God's call on my own life and invest more in missions even now to the point of taking my family to a foreign land.. For anyone that might have questions about the organization, they just need to ask. Everything was open and no question seemed off limits to us. Our guide was excellent. It was amazing to see what can be done when there is enough money to do it. My only concern is how are the nationals able to duplicate this program if the American dollar is ever to dry up. I could see they are working on ways to fund this ministry from inside the country but this, like many mission works will be very hard to reproduce by those whom are receiving the benefits. To me this was a new definition of indigenous work. They almost only use nationals to run the ministry in country, but most of those nationals are supported from without, not from the church they pastor. So we just continue to trust the Lord that he will supply the funds until HE returns. I pray that God will continue to use GFA and I am blessed to have had opportunity to see this ministry and meet the leaders and some of those who are being blessed by the mission.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would probably not spend as much on buildings. Seeing buildings that far exceed the nature of those around them gives the idea that the church has lots of money. The compounds are very nice in most places but i wonder how they compare to what the people experience in their own homes. It is just a struggle to bring balance to this idea of indigenous ministry.

I am very thankful for Gospel for Asia. If you want to grow in the word of God read he wonderful books at God has allow KP to write. Nobody but God could deliver a message of hope for the lost. We were all lost in a condition of hopelessness nobody but God could deliver us from the penalty and power of sin. I am thankful that The Lord has allow me to sponsor several missionaries, Bridge of Hope children, etc. What we fail to realize that MUCH IS GIVEN MUCH IS REQUIRED. We in America have forgotten about the poor and suffering in the world. No longer do we has or address the missionary in churches. We have failed look beyond our needs at the needs of other. My friend wake up. If you attend a church is 10 percent of the tithes and offering going out to help the poor, or are we living in comfort. Ask the Lord to reach and show you what he would have you to do.
Remember the television show Mission Impossible" that aired in the late 70's 80's where the mission seem to be impossible , however, the mission was always completed. Decades ago Asia did not know of any hope..... the mission seemed impossible., and no one carried about the lost in the 10/40 window
nobody but God listened to a mother's prayer to use one of her sons to serve The Lord. Well nobody but God could do what God hd done and keep doing... the rest is HIS-STORY.
Love you always

My wife and I have been involved with the ministry of Gospel For Asia for over 10 years. First as donors, then as volunteers, & now as full time staff. I strive to be a good steward in all things and especially concerning the Lord's work. I've carefully examined this ministry through the years and in doing so I've come to the conclusion this work is driven by the mighty hand of God with the utmost of integrity!

Time and time again I have been blown away by examples of Godliness and Integrity at every level. Most especially through the leadership here stateside and from our time on the field. Praise the Lord for a quality ministry such as Gospel For Asia!
