Jesus 4 Asia is targeting the most densely populated area in the world, facing competing worldviews and entrenched religious traditions that are extremely resistant to Christianity--no small task. But by God's sheer grace, they are making a difference! Their staff members are compassionate, creative, savvy, economical and humble, yet bold for reaching hearts in some of the most difficult circumstances with the love and saving truth of Jesus Christ. It has been a pleasure working with them and seeing lives changed through their ministry!
JFA is one of the few organizations where every single penny of what you send goes directly to the project it was intended for. They are sacrificially dedicated to spreading the gospel in Asia.
I've personally worked with the members of Jesus for Asia and saw the difference they're making in many countries. They're passionate about their mission and dedicate their lives to service. When you're part of this ministry the stories of struggles, challenges, and miracles of mission work in Asia become real to you. Also you can support this ministry with confidence because you can see the direct results of your donations .
My wife and I heard about Jesus for Asia in 2012 when we attended a FaithCamp in Hayden Idaho. We learned that there were millions in the world who had never heard of Jesus and that blew me away. We also learned about the decline in giving to foreign missions and were convicted to do more to support God's work abroad. We felt confident donating to Jesus for Asia because 100% of the donation went to the project specified. After a year and a half of interaction with them on a donor basis we felt God call us to the mission field. Naturally we contacted the Woods at JFA and they have us so much of their time to give us guidance in the steps to take in preparing to launch and we weren't even going as missionaries with them. Eventually we did decide to partner with their ministry and it has been a wonderful decision. We have an incredible support team that is focused on praying for us but is also just as passionate about the people we are serving and the work we are doing as we are, maybe even more so. It is rare to find an administration that doesn't want control of things but understands that the front line workers need freedom to make decisions and adapt to cultural things that someone in America may not understand, but that is another great quality of Jesus for Asia. They counsel, guide and work together with us to build up projects rather than micromanage. In the end they are a wonderful ministry but more so, wonderful Christian people. From a donor standpoint and now a volunteer we have nothing but good to say.
We learned about Jesus for Asia over four years ago. We were impressed with their devoted to seeing God's love shared with those who had never heard. Even though they aren't living overseas, they are missionaries right where they're at. They help so many of us in Asia with managing our finances at no cost to us or our donors. I didn't even know there were organizations like this! It shows that their heart is truly in this work. Everyone who works at Jesus for Asia is 100% dedicated to Christ and His mission! What a blessing they are to work with!
I met Jon and Natalie many years ago and have been acquainted with JFA since 2007. I worked with them full time off and on between the years 2009 and 2013.
They are committed to seeing the Gospel go forward by faith no matter the cost. They have given everything they have to forward God's work. Donations made to JFA are managed responsibly and for the project they were specified for.
I have been inspired by their faithfulness to God and their vision to see the gospel go throughout the world, especially to those places where it hasn't reached yet. They need all the help and support and prayers they can get.
I first heard of Jesus for Asia from a friend in 2009. Faith Camp 2010 was life changing for me. God spoke to me through the messages I heard there and called me to be a part of this ministry. I have had the privilege of visiting India and Thailand and seeing how God is using the ministry of Jesus for Asia to bless many people around the world. What a blessing to see God using real people, with all their faults and limitations, to do His amazing work. I'm grateful for the opportunity to partner with Jesus for Asia in sharing the Gospel around the world.
I know of no other ministry that has such diversity of outreach, not only to the forgotten people of Asia, but also to those who have, for the most part, turned their backs on foreign missions. Through their many and varied projects, Jesus for Asia is making a huge impact! JFA has also taken on the daunting task of raising awareness that there are still 3 billion people in the world who have never heard of Jesus! This is a much needed ministry that is worthy of ongoing financial and prayerful support!
I have experienced personally, first hand, the love, the tears, the ultra sacrifice of those who have dedicated their ENTIRE lives to the work of this ministry in sharing the Gospel of Jesus to the Asian world. To hear the pain in their voices and see the tears in their eyes as they talk of and plead in behalf of this world of unwarned and underserved people helped me to know of and care about the mission to Asia.
I've been connected with Jesus for Asia since 2013. Their commitment to their mission is unwavering, even in the most difficult times. They are constantly looking for ways to help those who desperately need it. I know with certainty that 100% of the funds I donate are used for the intended purpose. Jesus for Asia does not take a cut of my donation for administrative purposes. I personally know the leaders of this ministry. They are some of the best people I know. I plan to continue my relationship with this ministry for the long haul.
