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.

There have been numerous misinformation campaigns in India initiated in India with the purpose of attempting to discredit K.P. Yohannan and the ministry of Gospel for Asia. Attached is an open letter to fellow Christians from K.P. Yohannan addressing these issues. http://www.gfa.org/integrity More than a hundred nationally known pastors, church leaders, businessmen and individuals have visited GFA's work in South Asia. Some travel with the ministry and others have made their own travel arrangements. We would be happy to provide references at your request. Regarding the above post, to our knowledge, we do not have a record of this individual as a volunteer or any past correspondence inquiring us about these issues before posting this comment. Feel free to call us if you have any questions 800-946-2742 or email at info@gfa.org.

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!!
