A chance to read the Bible on their own is a gift that every national missionary wants to give the people they minister among. You can provide a missionary and the believers he disciples with a Bible for $3 or eight New Testaments for $4.
Films on the life of Jesus have proven to be one of the most effective tools to communicate the Gospel with Asian people. Already tens of thousands have been touched by the love of Christ as a result of watching these films. To share this amazing story with others, national missionaries all across the mission field are waiting for an LCD projector kit, which includes the film and all the equipment needed to show it. $1,750 buys one LCD projector kit.
Jesus Wells, located near GFA churches or Bible colleges, provide hundreds of opportunities for missionaries to share the love of Jesus with the villagers who come for clean water. You can provide a Jesus Well for an entire community for $1,000.
The sounds of praise coming from a new church building are a dream for many congregations in Asia. With many new believers, there is a huge and ever-growing need for buildings to shelter them from the weather and anti-Christian forces. A church in India can be built for as little as $11,000.
Gospel for Asia's Compassion Services is bringing Christ's love to the suffering and needy in very practical ways. GFA-supported missionaries and volunteers assist survivors of natural disasters by providing food, water, medical care, clothing and even shelter. Teams also minister to slum dwellers and leprosy patients in some of Asia's major cities. And all is done with a clear Gospel witness.
Reaching the most unreached in our generation is the vision God has given to Gospel for Asia. For this to become a reality, we realized years ago that we would need to send out many more pioneer missionaries to start fellowships among all the unreached people groups of the Indian subcontinent and the neighboring countries.
The Scriptures show that the Lord has a special role for women to fulfill in His kingdom. The first person to whom God chose to announce His Son's earthly arrival was a woman. Through Jesus' ministry, He demonstrated His value of women in a male-dominated society—teaching them, touching them and healing them. And when He rose from the dead, women were the first to know.
Persecution is a part of life for many GFA missionaries. Beatings, death threats and imprisonment are a few of the things they encounter on a daily basis. But despite great hostility, they continue to press onward as they proclaim the Good News of Christ to the unsaved souls of Asia. They are not willing for any man to perish without hearing the name of Jesus, even if that means that they might physically perish.
The main goal of our leprosy ministry is to share the love of Jesus and the hope of the Gospel with the victims of this disfiguring disease. At the same time, we seek to help them with the many needs and challenges they face in their personal lives, their families and their colonies.
Gospel for Asia’s Medical Ministry teams of trained nurses and doctors visit dozens of villages, and Bridge of Hope Centers, ministering to thousands of people each year, all in the name of the Great Physician—Jesus Christ.
Millions lead desperate lives in the slums of Asia. Our slum ministry is different from other outreaches because we deal with masses of desperate people who have no means whatsoever to better their situation or escape their surroundings. It takes tremendous self-sacrifice and patience on the part of our national missionaries to work among them, win their trust and show them Jesus' love. It also entails meeting urgent and often unique needs.
Gospel for Asia-supported radio programs are heard in more than 100 of Asia's most common languages. These programs are written and recorded by national missionaries who are familiar with the culture and understand the struggles of the people.
You can broadcast the story of Christ throughout India and other nearby countries through GFA Radio. Thousands have given their lives to the Lord through these programs in their own language. People who are exposed to the Gospel through radio tend to be more receptive to national missionaries when they visit. You can provide one 15-minute program for $45 or one hour of programming for $180. Your donation will send a message of hope through the airwaves.
Women's Literacy Classes Teach Scripture and Skills
Women across South Asia gather each week for literacy classes where they learn reading, writing and math skills. When a woman completes the course, she's able to read warning labels to protect her children and understand contracts to avoid bonded labor. She won't get cheated at the marketplace because she will finally know how to add. And she can read the Bible for herself and teach it to her children. Empower Women with the Ability to Read
These women must become better equipped to survive in a society that frequently takes advantage of them. Classrooms are available and willing teachers are ready—all these eager students need is a literacy book and something to write on. Please donate toward these effective teaching tools.
More than 400 million Muslims live in South Asia, and India alone has more than 150 million people practicing Islam—making it one of the countries with the largest Muslim population. Gospel for Asia has a special ministry geared toward reaching these people and teaching them about the Savior—Jesus Christ.
Through GFA Compassion Services, you can provide a simple, strong house for a family for only $5,000—a house that will remind both parents and their children as they grow up that some people called Christians loved them enough to give them shelter ... and that their Jesus loves them as well.
On-going Cyclone Relief efforts:
Gospel for Asia Compassion Services teams are already on the ground caring for the victims of a powerful cyclone that ravaged West Bengal, India, and the neighboring country of Bangladesh. Rebuilding Myanmar could take years. And since our missionaries, churches and Bible college students are indigenous, they will be there for the long haul.
Nargis Survivors Find New Hope Amid Suffering
