My wife and I have been volunteers with GFA for many years. During this period of time we have been amazed how God is using this organization. GFA is a prayer-dependent and prayer-led ministry whose goal is to bring the Gospel message to the lost in Asia. While traveling to India last year, I saw first hand the seriousness of GFA's accountability right down to a single rupee. This is one of the few charitable organizations where 100% of the money donated for support of its children in the Bridge of Hope Centers and for the National Missionaries goes directly to the field. In India I was touched by the faithfulness of the brothers and sisters from GFA ministering to those in need. My heart was especially moved by the love and care shown to the sick in the leper colonies as well as to the children in the Bridge of Hope Centers. From National missionaries, to office staff both here and in India, I have encountered humble men and women who understand Jesus' command to die to self and serve others. We thank God for this ministry.

In India, I personally witnessed the transforming power of the love of our Lord Jesus Christ in the lives of those touched by the Gospel shared through GFA.

As GFA is a prayer-led and spirit-filled organization, seeking the Lord in all things, I would change nothing.

My wife and I read Revolution in World Missions and were hooked. We became sponsors right away, everything just made sense. A few months later we became volunteers. It is a great opportunity to be a mouthpiece for our brothers and sisters in Asia who can't come here and raise support especially since they are much better suited to reach their own people and have the passion to do so. I got to travel to the field about a year and a half ago to see the work first hand. Everything that Gospel for Asia does is done with making disciples in mind. We got to see children in Bridge of Hope centers, talk with national missionaries and hear their stories of struggles and victories, see brothers and sisters ministering to lepers and taking care of their wounds and see the lostness of a people who know nothing about Jesus Christ. This is a ministry who knows where their power and abilities come from, the Lord, they bring everything to him in prayer and have done so since the beginning of the ministry. If you have any kind of desire to see lost people reached, this is definitely a ministry for you.

My trip to India. We got the chance to tour the headquarters there and see how detailed their bookkeeping is, everything is accounted for, nothing is wasted.

I don't know that I would change anything, I am a volunteer and so I have the privilege of serving these people. I trust the leadership of GFA and know that they continually seek the Lords guidance for the direction in which they should go or run a program.

As a member of the board of directors for Gospel for Asia over the last 10 years, and as a supporter of several native missionaries through GFA since 1985, and as a sponsor of 7 Bridge of Hope children, and as the father of a son who has gone through the GFA School of Discipleship and is now raising support to become a full-time staff member, and as a first-hand witness of the work being done by GFA in India, and as a part-time volunteer for GFA, I would highly - and whole-heartily - recommend this organization for your consideration. The commitment of the leadership, and all the native missionaries,
to spread the gospel where Christ has never been preached is, in a word: “RADICAL.” Those on the field are encouraged to dig their grave outside the village they are seeking to reach for Christ. It is their way of saying, “I am willing to lay down my life for these people that they might hear the gospel." The integrity of this mission group is above reproach. For anyone wanting to support GFA know this, your money will not be used for anything other than what you designate it for. If for native missionaries, 100% of it will go to the missionary. If for the Bridge of Hope children, 100% will go to supporting your child. All administrative costs are taken care of through a “general fund” of which you can designate your gifts to also. In order for the mission field to receive 100% of what is donated, those on staff must raise their own support. If your desire is to see, and be a part of, literally 100's of thousands of people coming to faith in Jesus, then you would be hard-pressed to find a more blessed or more committed mission organization than Gospel for Asia. I could go on and on, but you get the idea - I love these guys; and I know you will too!

I have been to India with K.P. Yohannan. Our daugher has been to India twice on short-term missions trips. And our son has been to India and is now working to join the staff at GFA.

If I could change anything about GFA it would be to do all I could to expand what they are already doing. This group is Christ-centered in all they do - I really wouldn't want to change that.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?

Definitely

How much of an impact do you think this organization has?

Life-changing

Will you tell others about this organization?

Definitely

How did you learn about this organization?

I learned about GFA after meeting K.P. Yohannan briefly and then reading his book 'Revolution in World Missions'. God opened my heart, through this book, to what He wanted to do in Asia. I was hooked and have been ever since.

What is this organization's top short-term priority?

I am thoroughly convinced that the ONLY priority GFA has is bringing as many sons and daughters to glory as possible through the preaching of the gospel. Everything else - i.e. short/long term priorities - only serves as a means to reaching that goal.

I have been volunteering with GFA for several years and love the ministry. The reason we chose to work with GFA is because of the integrity of the ministry and dedication in using every dollar wisely. I have been to Carrolton, TX, and India to see the ministry first hand. The number one mission is to get the good news to those who have not heard, and minister where God opens doors. They make their annual financial reports available to anyone who wants to see them. Every penny goes where we designate.

My husband and I have been donors and supporters of GFA for over 20 years. We have been to India twice to visit bible colleges, regional headquarters, and village churches. We know K.P. and his family personally, and have visited the Texas headquarters twice. This organization does what it claims to do: help Asian brothers and sisters in Christ to reach their nations with the good news of salvation. both in the U.S. and in India, we saw a very high level of accountability with both material resources and spiritually. We also support a ministry (Intensive Care Ministries) that provides training in the inductive bible study method, and which has helped GFA to make sure that all of their bible students learn how to study and prepare messages based on the WORD of GOD.

I'm an American traveling in India right now and NOT by the invitation of GFA. What I see going on here deserves serious investigation, BUT we will never be able to do that as this is India and not the US. The founder of GFA started with great intentions and a lot of charisma. He is now purchasing vast amounts of land in Kerala, India and is under investigation for how he has come to have so much money. He is also building a large mansion far above anyone else here. It makes me sick to my stomach that it will seem like nobody can stop this. Even this review will probably be deleted by them. Pray and see if this is true. This is not an Internet rumor. I'm here in India now and can see with my own eyes.

I'm in India now and disgusted by the results. There is NO accountability for how the money is directed. I would imagine that only a few church planters are supported by thousands of churches and people in the US, but much of the funds go elsewhere.

They give 100% of your funds to the person YOU choose to donate to. None is taken out for administration! People who work behind the scenes find their own sponsors so that all your money goes to help the people in Asia. The Founder is an amazing person! I highly recommend this organization!!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Through their material I have been given a greater perspective on my life and my purpose for living - to help those who are suffering and in great need

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazing! Always more than willing to give out free stuff...books, dvds, maps, etc. Not cheesy brochures, real good books that relate to our life here in a rich country.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

literally save millions of lives through physical and spiritual healing.
