I recently returned from another trip to India. This was my 19th trip, most of them with Gospel For Asia (GFA). I love what the Lord is doing through GFA. We visited Bible Colleges, Slum Ministries, Street Children Ministries, and Bridge of Hope Ministries, (a service to the "least of the least" children). What a blessing to see first hand how GFA provides a service of excellence, producing fruit, much fruit, and fruit that remains!

As a Christian journalist, I was privileged to join a group visiting ministries in India sponsored by Gospel for Asia. I saw firsthand where contributions are being used to transform people's lives both spiritually and physically. The GFA personnel on every level are Christ-committed disciples serving with grace and perseverence. Their devotion to God through prayer and fasting has made a lasting impact on my life.

I had the tremendous opportunity to visit several of the locations in India where Gospel for Asia is having a powerful influence. Not only was I encouraged by the integrity of GFA, but I was also inspired by their committment to prayer and seeking the Lord in everything they do. I returned from my visit with a renewed sense of committment to the Lord's work and a desire to be continually more disciplined in my prayer life. GFA is doing a great work in helping children through Bridge of Hope and assisting mothers through the women's fellowships. I was impressed by the sacrifical love and devotion of the national missionaries. One thing is clear, Gospel for Asia operates through a committment to prayer and seeking God's leading in all that they do.

Having recently travelled to India, visiting several Gospel for Asia ministries, I came back impressed and inspired. The heart of Gospel for Asia was so clear; to honour God and to reach the lost through the love of Jesus. Examples of this shone through the leaders and missionaries in the Bridge of Hope schools, the Boys Home, the Bible Colleges, and in the distribution of gift catalogue items. We were treated like honoured guests when I felt the honour should be going to those in the field. I was touched by the mentally challenged boy in the Boys Home that was saved from the streets to be sheltered, trained and loved. His bright smile was priceless. The women whose hands were deformed by leprosy that broke down in tears telling her testimony of how God's love reached her through Gospel for Asia workers. God is at work in Asia through the faithful work of Gospel for Asia.

I recently traveled to India & was honoured to visit a few different projects Gospel For Asia funds in different regions of India. Prior to the trip I knew very little about GFA but since my travels have been given an in depth look into how GFA is structured & operates. I am incredibly impressed with the sincerity, quality and integrity of all Gospel For Asia staff members and the organization as whole. I was happy to hear all money donated to Gospel For Asia is donated to the mission field. We had many opportunities to ask questions to local staff, to hear about the multitude of ways GFA is meeting the needs in Asia and to tour their different projects. We were also blessed to spend an afternoon with K.P. Yohannan, where no question was off limit. After visiting the different projects including, Bridge of Hope, Bible Colleges, Widow Ministries, Gift Catalogue recipients and hearing the first hand testimonies I can confirm the difference Gospel For Asia is making in the name of Jesus. Lives are being changed and people are learning about Jesus because of the work they are doing in Asia. GFA has a pure, humble heart and what you see is what you get. Every aspect of my trip was handled with precision and efficiently. I would recommend volunteering with &/or donating to Gospel For Asia. Thank you for for allowing me to be apart of this ministry.

I recently had the opportunity to travel to India, with Gospel For Asia. Going into the trip I had a number of reservations, but GFA organized and executed this trip so well, that nothing came as a surprise. They go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable, and safely fed. I would go on another trip with GFA at the drop of a hat, if the offer were to ever come up again.

I recently had the privilege to teach at GFA Bible Colleges in India (Chennai and Kochi). I was so blessed to see many young men and women being trained to be effective ministers of the Gospel. From getting to know these students, I witnessed firsthand their genuine desires to reach the unreached people for Christ. Meeting the professors and getting to know them personally was also a huge blessing. They were very humble and hospitable. I hope to go back and teach there again some day.

I had the privilege and honor to travel with GFA to India recently. It was an incredible trip. We were well taken care of and lead with professionalism. Travel arrangements were handled efficiently. I am a member of the media, and have traveled with different organizations. GFA and their staff on the ground will take great care in making sure the accommodations and arrangements are excellent. The ministry itself of the leadership of the Metropolitan K. P. Yohannon. They honor God with their lives, and evangelism is priority. The many parts of the ministry work together like a well-oiled machine, that compliments each other, to bring people to Christ. That is a true testimony of team work when God adds to your numbers like the new Testament Church. Against a lot of odds, the team doesn't rely on themselves, but on the faithful and ever-present help of God. Each department is vital, and works fervently to give hope. It's one thing to talk about hope, and it's another thing to see hope in action. I saw GFA giving hope in hopeless situations. It was life-changing.

I am not a member of GFA or a volunteer but was given the opportunity to visit several of their locations in India. I was so impressed with their sincere humility and desire to reach the unreached in this part of the world. 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 organization is doing more with their resources than any organization I have ever seen. I would encourage anyone to support this effort. For anyone that might have questions about the organization, I would say for them to simply ask. Everything was open and no question was off limits to us.
I am praying that God will continue to use GFA and I am glad to have had the opportunity to see this ministry first hand.

GFA provides people who has not heard of the Lord Jesus Christ and God provision for salvation an opportunity to hear the “good news” that Jesus died for their sins and by receiving/believing Him as Lord and Savior they can have eternal life with God (John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8-9). On my previous visit to India (February 2013), I observed many of the Christian activities that GFA is doing to show people God’s love and desire for them to have abundant and eternal life through faith in His Son, Jesus. This organization has a heart for God’s creation and desire for them to have a relationship with God and experience His love. By continuous prayer and fasting to hear and obey God, this organization is committed to listening to and following God’s voice.
