This is a noisy bunch of critters! The Barnyard Bundle includes three pairs of chickens, a pair of goats, four pigs and one cow, which are distributed among several families. Above the commotion of clucking, bleating and mooing animals, recipients give a hearty “thank you” for demonstrating God’s love.

Bundling up two pairs of chickens, a pair of pigs and a lamb is an easy—and super cute—way to share the grace of God with several families in need.

“Animals, the animals, they came in by twosies, twosies.” Well, with this Noah’s Ark package, we aren’t taking the animals onto a giant wooden ship, but we can bless many impoverished families with the gift of two of each animal!

The Mission Support Team is comprised of behind-the-scenes missionaries who serve in GFA World’s administrative offices. Although they serve in offices far from the physical mission field, their role is vital to the ministry.
For nearly 40 years, behind-the-scenes missionaries have functioned as a crucial link between the mission field and the Western Church. By communicating with GFA supporters in their country and raising resources for the field, the Mission Support Team has provided the field with the critical prayer and financial support needed for ministry.
In much the same way that the Mission Support Team stands behind frontline missionaries on the field, you can stand with behind-the-scenes missionaries and enable them to continue in their role.

Far too many children in the areas we serve struggle in abject poverty. Without things like proper nutrition, clean water and education, they have no hope of breaking free of cyclical poverty and attaining a better future.
GFA’s Child Sponsorship Program offers hope through long-term community development programs that empower children and their communities to improve their lives in lasting, transformational ways. We’ve found the most effective way to help a child is to strengthen the child’s entire community, and the work we do is tailored to the specific needs within a child’s respective community. This may mean improving access to resources like clean water, better nutrition, basic healthcare, education and economic opportunities.
By linking your life with an impoverished child through GFA World’s Child Sponsorship Program, you can help give them a future filled with possibilities and hope.

Today, national missionaries like evangelist Marty are bringing words of life and hope to people in places where Christ’s love has never been shared.
By giving toward GFA World’s National Missionary Program, you’ll equip men and women to serve full time by covering their living and ministry expenses—resulting in lives transformed for eternity.
“It’s my prayer and desire that the Lord will bring so many people to Him in this area. ... [I want to] help them grow in the Lord, [so] they will take up the responsibilities of the church in the days to come. That’s my prayer and my desire.” —Pastor Marty, a GFA worker serving in one of Asia’s slums

Women missionaries courageously serve in harsh areas to effectively bring hope to some of the most downtrodden people in areas we serve. They personally relate to the struggles of the women they meet and can minister to women and children unhindered by the cultural boundaries that male missionaries encounter. Women missionaries uplift communities by providing literacy training, prayer, counseling, discipleship for women in the local church, and news of hope for all who hunger for true love.
By sponsoring a woman missionary, you’ll enable them to minister to those forgotten by much of society. Uplifting the lives of women is one of the most significant ways to transform families and communities.

Roofs made of thatch are a common sight across Asia and Africa, but they don’t offer good protection from annual monsoon rains, which means families must spend precious resources repairing or replacing their possessions. These lightweight, sturdy tin roofs give needy families a safe, dry place to call home.

Malaria is transmitted through the bite of an infected mosquito. Mosquito nets save lives and offer a restful night’s sleep, free from the sting of disease-laden mosquitoes.

Your gift toward medical ministry can help provide free medical care and health education for people who are suffering and dying from treatable ailments. GFA missionaries organize medical camps in impoverished villages and invite teams of nurses, doctors and other health care professionals to provide free medical care. One medical camp may serve 200 to 1,000 people. Helping provide medical care for a family of five costs as little as $5.
Through medical ministry, families that lack access to medication or have never been taught basic hygiene can receive life-saving treatment and health education, all in the name of the Great Physician: Jesus Christ.

Most families in the impoverished areas in which GFA serves have little or no insulation or heating in their homes. Those who sleep on the streets are even more exposed to the cold. Blankets provide comfort and protection and serve as tangible expressions of Christ’s love.
“This is one of my most favorite things to do this time of the year! I can hardly wait to get to heaven to hear the stories of how clean water saved lives or a pair of chickens sustained a family or how a blanket kept someone warm for the winter.” —Denise, a donor from Iowa

Jesus Wells provide fresh water year-round, protecting communities from waterborne illnesses and sparing women and children from spending hours fetching water. Obtaining clean water is also vital for practicing safe hygiene and for supporting healthy immune systems, both of which prevent the spread of diseases.
Pastors serving near Jesus Wells are able to share about the Living Water mentioned on the well’s plaque. Providing safe water—either by drilling a new well or maintaining existing wells—is a practical way to show communities how much God and His children care for all people!

Many impoverished women lack education and this limits their job opportunities. If a woman has lost her husband, or if he doesn’t earn enough, she may be powerless to provide for herself and her children. A sewing machine can allow her to start a productive business and meet her family’s needs.
“I am from a long line of avid seamstresses. … I am soooo happy to be able to give the gift of a sewing machine. ... THANKS for making this opportunity possible and training the recipient of this machine. May God bless and prosper the recipient.” —Carolyn from Delaware

Many people in the areas we serve do not have clean water and as a result battle waterborne illnesses—or even succumb to death. Made with simple materials, BioSand water filters remove 98 percent of biological impurities, providing safe water for drinking and cooking for a family and often for neighbors too! The clean water will improve health and hygiene and will give peace of mind—all of which are expressions of Christ’s care.

More than a billion people worldwide have no choice but to go to the bathroom out in the open, which poses many risks, especially for women and girls who venture into open fields under the cover of darkness. Private outdoor toilets spare families from disease found at communal waste grounds and protects the dignity of men and women.

When you give to Compassion Services, you help meet the needs of people in desperate situations. With your gift, GFA missionaries can minister in slums and leprosy colonies, bring medical care to remote communities and provide practical, hope-filled relief supplies after a disaster, all revealing God’s compassion and care to burdened and broken individuals.
“[GFA World] has a rich legacy of being responsive to humanitarian crises, doing these initiatives in various parts of the country. [We] hope to make a difference to the vulnerable and marginalized and hope they overcome these unprecedented circumstances.” —Laini, a national missionary

In many areas we serve, widows are an invisible part of society. They are commonly ignored, rejected and believed to be the cause of their husbands’ deaths, even cursed in some regions. Their own upbringing often leads them to believe those same things about themselves. Even women who have been abandoned by their husbands face the same sudden crisis as that of widows.
Also, millions of children must fend for themselves either as orphans, runaways or sons and daughters abandoned by their parents. Alone and unprotected, widows and abandoned children face immense practical and emotional hardships. But the Body of Christ can offer support and hope. When you give toward Widows and Abandoned Children, you can help provide things like food, shelter, income-generating gifts, dignity and God’s compassion to women and children in need.

Cows and the milk they produce help families grow stronger, healthier and more financially secure. As a poor widow, Jamini could not offer her son Tavish a bright future. When her son grew up and married, her worry grew to include her grandchildren’s futures—until Tavish received a cow at a gift distribution.
“After having received the gift, we are really blessed. We have some income in our family. We have hope; we have a purpose in life and really are so blessed and so happy, just unlike what we thought our future would be.”—Jamini, whose son Tavish received a cow

Water buffalo are powerful animals often used to plough fields. They produce milk for drinking or selling, and their dung can be used as fuel for cooking. Your gift towards a water buffalo could greatly improve a family’s financial situation!

These portly critters bring powerful financial breakthroughs to needy families. Piglets fetch a good price at market, which enables families to buy whatever they need, and adult pigs provide ample meat for selling or eating.
“As I was very poor before, I used to worry a lot. … But now, since I have [these piglets,] all the worries and everything has been taken away. … After getting these piglets, I really have seen the works of prayer and what faith can really do. My faith is growing day by day.” —Mahavir, a father of three who can now feed and clothe his family

Your gift towards goats can rapidly improve a family’s financial situation. In the case of one father, one pair of goats multiplied and enabled him to start a goat farm, resulting in more than 75 goats to milk or sell. He built a house for his family and sent his children to school, offering them a better future than his parents were able to offer him when he was a child.
“My 8-year-old nephew Benjamin has been waiting for the last few weeks for your Christmas Gift Catalogue to come in the mail. He asks me nearly every day if it has come yet . . . After writing his list and handing over the money, he said that his joy was ‘too much!’ ”—Cherilyn from Canada

Your gift towards chickens can help supplement a family’s income and often helps a family get on its feet financially. Hungry families can eat or sell the nutritious eggs, or they can hatch chicks to increase their flock and later have more eggs and chicks to sell.
“There is no one to take care of me at this old age. I am worried, thinking, ‘What will happen if I die and no one will even know about it?’ Today, I saw your care, and I am happy for the chicken you gave me.” —Pari, a 65-year-old widow

Harsh winters force many people indoors, hindering villagers from finding jobs and limiting pastors’ ability to minister.

Fledgling congregations often lack a permanent structure to use for worship services, which exposes them to a host of problems. Their meetings—and ministries—are also hindered simply because they do not have space to gather as a church family. Your gift helps us to build and repair buildings. Even a gift of $80 can help provide decades of safer worship; with others sharing the cost, a church can be built!
