My brother, Chris Brewer, has worked for Gospel for Asia for many years. I have personally seen the good work that GFA does. They work hard spreading God's word and setting hearts on fire for Jesus Christ! They do this through fundraising, training and sending missionaries to South Asia to care for and educate the poor. This is truly God's work.

Sincerely,
Randall Brewer

My experience with GFA began with reading the free book Revolution in World Missions. This book changed my life! I recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about missions and especially mission work in the 10/40 window.
My husband and I began sponsoring a native missionary in 2003. At that time, we were receiving personal letters from our sponsored missionary. At this point, the work on the field has expanded to the extent that these personal letters are no longer available. and we understand that a native missionary has better things to do than writing letters to us!
In 2013, I had the opportunity to visit India and see some of the ministry first hand. We visited Bridge of Hope centers; churches; a boys' home; the site of a girls' home; a leper treatment center; a cobbler making specialty shoes for patients; the sites of several Jesus wells and biosand water filters; a center where widows are taught to read, write, and use a sewing machine; a radio and TV station; and a seminary. We met some of the missionaries who serve selflessly and some of the church members who were eager to show us their churches. We saw slums where thousands of people live with not enough income to provide their families a handful of rice each day.
God is using the little that we give toward this work in a big way. New churches are being started every day. Those who only know of vengeful gods are hearing for the first time about a loving God who sent His Son Jesus to die on a cross for their sins. I pray that all of these dear people will hear the message before it is eternally too late.

For 14 years, I've produced various radio and television projects for Gospel for Asia. I've met with many leaders of GFA and found them to be consistently humble and passionate about their work. And the work they do is changing tens of thousands of lives.

I took a Vision Tour of India and got to see first hand the schools they set up for the so-called "Untouchables"--giving kids a way out of poverty. Although their work is faith-based, they welcome all kids regardless of their faith. I've seen GFA's work in the slums, setting up water wells, providing food, and most of all, providing practical hope.

To help break the cycle of poverty, GFA donates water buffaloes, goats, and chickens to families, which provides not only sources of food and also ways of earning income. GFA also helps women break the vicious cycle of human trafficking by providing them sewing machines. This empowers women to earn a living.

I appreciate the people and the work of GFA--and I've seen first-hand how they genuinely help people break of poverty and share a very beautiful and practical hope.

My wife and I have been involved with GFA for over 10 years. We have and continue to sponsor missionaries and Bridge of Hope children. We routinely get updates on both regularly. We have also sponsored the building of churches and drilling of wells for clean water.
We have been impressed with how well they communicate with their supporters and the diligence they place on good stewardship, seeing to it that the vast majority of monies donated go to ministry with minimal administrative expenses.
This is a very well run organization that matches its promises with actions and results.
We couldn't be happier with how are investment is being managed.

My husband and I have been supporters of Gospel for Asia for years. We were able to make a sizable donation after we sold our business. I appreciated the follow up and accountability GFA gave to our donation. This organization truly cares for the people it helps and makes it easy to give to the exact cause or area of concern that touches your heart!

I have known about gospel for Asia for almost 20 years, when K.P. Yohannan can to speak at my church about supporting national missionaries as the share God's love with their own people in Asia. I was intrigued about supporting missionaries in Asia that did not have the typical barriers of western missionaries such as language, life style, customs and a history of oppression and subjugation between our countries.

I have been a supporter of the ministry since that time, sponsoring both missionaries, Bridge of Hope children and donating towards Jesus Wells, church building, gospel literature, sewing machines and many other way GFA helps impoverished families in Asia.

I have been working for GFA for the last 5 years, and being on staff I have realized the scope of the ministry is more vast that I had any idea of! I have been to Asia and met many of the missionaries and staff that work on the field. My admiration for the organization has only grown through the years. I count it a privilege to work here.

I have had family members on staff with Gospel for Asia for more than a decade. This has allowed me to visit their ministry headquarters on several occasions. The GFA staff are both loving and professional. Their love for Jesus is evident in all that they do. They graciously act as his hands and feet as they serve others.

My husband and I have supported Gospel For Asia for about a decade and have had the pleasure to meet and get to know, several staff members. We also have visited their headquarters at their former location in Carrollton, TX and it's current location in Wills Point. They are a humble group of believers who serve the The Lord wholeheartedly . I believe that the staff of GFA are following God's lead in how they reach the lost.

We have been donating to this group for decades. They have done a great job getting water wells put in, schools put in and missions done by the "a little each month goes a long way" type of program. It is hard to imagine a place that a water well makes a huge difference, but they do exist and GFA is providing water wells to communities through donations from here in the US and other countries. With a name like Gospel For Asia it is clear this is a christian organization that does good work to also spread the word about Christ. Go to the website and see where you can participate.

I have been involved with GFA for over 10 years. My knowledge of GFA started with a friend that works for them. After getting a personal account of all the lives that are touched around the world, I had to get involved. I have been very pleased to see their frugalness to insure as much money as possible goes to the ones in need.

This ministry is doing such important work among people who are poor and suffering. So many lives have been changed through their involvement with widows, orphans, and others who live under dire conditions, lack of water, food, and education. The staff are motivated by their love for Jesus and others and I am honored to support them in any way that I can.

Having many close relatives currently working for GFA, I have been provided with a front row seat to the mission of GFA and its grounds in Texas. Right away I noticed what a well-functioning organization this is, and how clear their mission is to spread the Gospel in any way possible. Every day I hear and learn about the different initiatives, plans, and progress GFA has made and I am constantly blown away. Being raised in the church and involved in many different missionary programs and volunteer opportunities has given me a rather good sense of fulfillment and purpose; However, I have never felt as fulfilled and excited with the work done through GFA. What this mission has accomplished and plans to accomplish in Asia is honestly amazing, and I cannot wait to see what God holds in store for GFA in the future.

Gospel for Asia is a reality check to a dark world - a world determined to run headlong into perdition. Gospel for Asia is a bright light, a citadel in the midst of some of the most unreached places on the planet.

As a staff member and donor, I have learned to appreciate the world-wide body of Christ as we pool our resources together to minister God's love to the lost, the needy and the hurting and along the journey, get a glimpse of God's mercy and glory. It doesn't get better than this.

I've worked with Gospel for Asia as full-time staff for almost ten years. Prior to joining staff in 2008, I volunteered at the administrative headquarters in Texas for five years. You could say I've closely observed Gospel for Asia since 2001. What a phenomenal non-profit organization!

I've learn alot, not only in my department and area of expertise, but also regarding the value of how a healthy Christian organization functions. I've seen through the years how graciously department leaders and upper management work together. They handle conflict from within, and persecution and false accusations from without; returning not with fear and malice, but instead with Christ-like humility, maturity, and steadfastness in truth. What a great group of believers to work with.

I've been on four tours through India. I've seen exponential growth of the work and was able ask many, many questions, all of which were promptly and transparently answered. Whether building a school for children, providing food for widows, creating literacy programs for women, or digging water wells for outcast communities; by God's provision, GFA is doing it all. I'm humbled and thankful to work here.

If you are interested in volunteering, donating, or joining staff, I recommend GFA without reserve.

I have been to see the work of Gospel for Asia and the scope of what they are doing is amazing. The Christmas catalog program has given over 1.6 million families significant items such as goats, chickens,sewing machines and other things. What impressed me the most is the attitude of the staff and their sacrificial service.

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.

I found out about GFA 11-12 years ago, and I have worked on staff at GFA for about five years. I am incredibly grateful for the work I get to be part of in Asia and for the staff I get to work alongside.

On three different trips to Asia, I’ve gotten to witness the work of GFA-supported missionaries, and each time it’s blown me away how God is using these men and women to humbly and faithfully serve God by serving the people in their communities—whether it’s children, widows, people living in slums, or people of different religious backgrounds.

Working here in the US office, I’ve seen the staff and leadership’s commitment to excellence. While no one is perfect and, just as at any organization, people fail at times, I have seen how the leaders here work tirelessly and how they respect and listen to the staff under them. I also find my co-workers to be committed and hard-working but also open-minded and incredibly supportive.

One of the main reasons why I whole-heartedly endorse supporting Gospel for Asia (GFA) is that they are committed to building up the church. GFA workers in Asia aren’t just interested in getting people to say a prayer of salvation, but also in seeing these people grow in their understanding of the truth. And in America, GFA produces many kinds of materials that are designed to encourage and challenge believers here to walk in closer relationship with the Lord. What a privilege to be part of building God’s world-wide kingdom!
