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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
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 had to make changes to this organization, I would...
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?
How much of an impact do you think this organization has?
Will you tell others about this organization?
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.
