Give Others the Chance to Hear About Christ and to Grow in Him
Many people have yet to hear the wonderful story of Christ’s birth. Through these gifts, you can enable national workers to do even more to serve their communities and give others the chance to hear about Jesus, grow in Him, and praise Him in a local fellowship. Through you, many will get the chance to know and worship our Saviour!
All Gifts for Ministry
A motorcycle enables a pastor and his wife to serve distant fellowships, giving people the leadership, counsel and prayer they need to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Winter Clothing Packet
Harsh winters force many people indoors, hindering villagers from finding jobs and limiting pastors’ ability to minister. Winter clothing packets help GFA missionaries stay healthy and able to minister during cold seasons. Winter clothing distributed to the poor protects the vulnerable from freezing cold.
Depending on the region, a winter clothing packet may include:
Sweater or other warm items
Bicycles help national missionaries save time, energy and transportation expenses, dramatically increasing their ability to minister. These sturdy bicycles enable national missionaries to respond quickly to people asking for prayer and to carry the news of Christ farther and faster.
$10,000 to $40,000
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!
A place of worship:
Testifies to the local community of the Lord’s presence and the credibility and stability of the local congregation.
Protects believers from outside dangers during worship services.
Offers a safe, welcoming location for visitors from any background who want to learn about Jesus.
Serves as a center for relief distributions during times of crisis.
Frees believers to worship openly and exuberantly without worrying about disturbing their landlords or neighbors.
Shelters believers from heavy rain and intense summer heat.
Many believers in areas we serve are first-generation believers who grew up knowing nothing of God’s ways, and they’re hungry for His Word. Your donation helps give people a copy of God’s Word, enabling them to grow in their knowledge of God and walk more closely with Him.
For many people in remote areas, a piece of Gospel literature is the first step in their journey of knowing Jesus. Oftentimes, Gospel literature will be read aloud to others who are illiterate or passed on to someone else who will read it and pass it on to yet another person.
