I have been to india and seen their operation on the ground, to say I was beyond amazed at the heart, professionalism, lean operation, efficiency and sheer dedication to creating churches in the most remote villages that you could ever imagine. My heart was full of compassion to see these images from a magazine lived out in the real world.

I have had personal experience for over 8 years of being connected to Gospel for Asia. I am a pastor of a church that has supported both their native missionaries and their Bridge of Hope Schools. We have also sent teams to the field to check out their ministries. We came back very impressed with what we examined. In fact I have personally been on the field and met with them in different counties in South Asia. Along with that I have had first hand experience with their staff and with their School of Discipleship program. With each of them I have witnessed an unparalleled commitment to reach the lost in southeast Asia with the message of the Gospel of Jesus and a willing to to this with a single minded focus.

I've been privileged to work closely with Gospel For Asia in a variety of ways, as a vendor, supporter and even inside the offices. The heart of the organization is that of servitude and a passion for reaching the lost world with the Gospel. I have never felt so proud of working with such a group of people who display such a high value of integrity and dedication to prayer. God bless the work and ministry of GFA, they are truly doing the Lord's work in a way i've never seen any other organization do it!

I have had the opportunity to see the work of Gospel for Asia and meet many of the workers in South Asia. They are among the most Godly people I have ever met. They serve tirelessly and sacrifice much to share the Love of Jesus. I have also met the staff at the US headquarters. They are not living in a cult or cult like atmosphere. Gospel for Asia's track record over many years demonstrates God's favor.

It saddens me to see former, disgruntled staff, spreading rumors, falsehoods and unsubstantiated claims. The enemy of Christ is skilled at attacking God's work and even well meaning people need to be vigilant.

I have met leaders from many national Christian organizations and have found KP Yohannan to be among the most passionate, humble servants of God.

Mike A.
I went on the 2014 pastors tour and it was amazing to see God working through Gospel for Asia.
The Bridge of Hope ministry was awesome as it helps children in their studies, feeds them one life meal a day, and shares the message of Jesus Christ with them.
The Jesus Well provides clean water for families to drink and a chance to also receive living water.
Bible colleges and seminaries are training future pastors and ministers to fulfill the Great Commission. The vision is dynamic and the work of the Holy Spirit is evident. What a great ministry to partner with.

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.

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!

This is Dr John Dayal, Member, National Integration council, Government of India, a former National President of the All India catholic Union and Secy Gen of the All India Christian Council. Much of my current work is in the justice, relief and rehab processes in the Tribal and Dalit-dominted Kandhamal District of Orissa. India. Kandhamal saw much violence against the Christian community in 2007 and 2008 in which more than 100 Christians were killed, 6000 of their houses demolished in 400 villages, and 56,000 people rendered homeless. While the catholic church helped rebuild 4000 houses, Believers Church, headed by its Metropolitan Bishop K P Yohannan, came second, building 1,000 churches and assisting in relief and rehab of the victims. The remaining houses were build by other denominational churches. Considering that the government was not keen to help the Christian victims, this was fantastic work done by the church in rebuilding lives. God bless them.

If you're looking to make a HUGE impact in global missions & want to know your money is being used to change lives, invest in Gospel for Asia programs. Each person working with GFA has a heart for Christ and a heart for others. This was displayed so obviously in the multiple ministry areas I saw on my recent trip to India. I wanted to meet a couple of Bridge of Hope kids that my husband & I could sponsor, and GFA went above & beyond to make it happen. What a blessing! After meeting the recipients of GFA's work and hearing their stories about how God has worked in their lives through GFA, I can confidently endorse this group to others.

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.
