Christmas is one day long, but your Christmas gift can link your life with someone in Asia for an entire year! Bless families and even transform entire communities by providing an education for needy children, equipping national workers or enabling behind-the-scenes missionaries to give vital support to the mission field. Through your gift, communities will hear about Christ and see that He cares about them—all year long!
All Sponsorship Types
Sponsor a Behind-the-Scenes Missionary for One Year
Can you imagine how many lives can be touched through the ministry of 100 national missionaries in Asia? Each missionary is usually impacting multiple communities. But these brothers and sisters can’t do it alone. They need people supporting them behind the scenes. At GFA, we call this the Mission Support Team.
The Mission Support Team comprises dedicated behind-the-scenes missionaries who raise their own support and live simply. Serving in graphic design, IT, grounds maintenance and many other areas of GFA’s administrative office, they promote awareness, provide support and engage in prayer for the ministry in Asia. Each one represents, on average, more than 100 national workers.
By sponsoring a behind-the-scenes missionary or family, you will help cover their living expenses—and you’ll be investing in the lives of the national workers they serve.
“God has called us to share His love with Asia, and GFA is the bridge that allows us to do that. We are spurred on by being part of this amazing staff family who have such a love for God, for Asia and for each other.” —Rob and Rebecca, GFA behind-the-scenes missionaries
Sponsor a Woman Missionary for One Year
Women missionaries courageously serve in harsh areas to effectively bring hope to some of the most downtrodden people in Asia. 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.
Sponsor a Missionary for One Year
Today, national workers like Pastor Nateshwar are bringing words of life and hope to people in places where Christ’s love has never been shared.
Understand the communities they serve and relate with them culturally
Live sacrificially so others can find the grace and new life Jesus offers
Fill an integral role in distributing Christmas gifts
Freely offer prayer and counsel to gift recipients and everyone in their communities
By giving toward GFA’s National Missionary Program, you’ll equip them to serve full time by covering their living and ministry expenses—resulting in lives transformed for eternity.
“The problem and persecution that I have faced is because of the love of Jesus. If I can help the poor and needy, I will encourage them. If I am able to [help] them in some extent, I will do it. That is because of the love of Jesus. I know Jesus loves them, so I love them.” —Pastor Nateshwar
Sponsor a Child for One Year
Like so many other children who grow up in poverty on tea estates, Talat had little chance of getting a quality education. But the odds against Talat were stacked even higher because his father had passed away. His mother labored as a domestic worker but couldn’t afford to feed Talat and his siblings three meals a day.
When a GFA-supported Bridge of Hope center opened up on the tea estate where they live, Talat got the life-changing opportunity to receive an education, a nutritious meal each day at the center, school supplies and even a mosquito net. Now Talat is learning many things through Bridge of Hope, and he has discovered a talent for drawing.
By linking your life with a Bridge of Hope child, you can help give them a future filled with possibilities and hope.
