Letter from our Founder, KP Yohannan
I was not yet 18 when, at a meeting in my village church, I heard about the untold millions living and dying without ever hearing the name of Jesus! That was the beginning of my journey following Christ, which still continues.
Now I am 71—how time flew in the blink of an eye. I wish I was 18 again, so I could be even more intense and radical in my journey for Christ, who gave His life for me and the whole world.
The year 2020 was full of crises, such as the Coronavirus pandemic, which plunged the whole world into chaos like never before. Yet, this year also was the greatest opportunity to be Christ and to bring hope to desperate multitudes through our kind deeds and almsgiving. That is what you have done through your prayers and financial support for GFA World.
As you will read in this report, the lives of tens of thousands were impacted with Christ’s love in word and deed.
The older I get, the more convinced I am that the darkness of sin, fear and death will only get worse (2 Thessalonians 3:1–2), and that the only means to bring hope to humanity, to experience forgiveness of sin and to overcome the fear of death is the Lord Jesus Christ. We are determined to continue this journey in Asia, and we have now started our outreach to the 1.2 billion people of Africa, which you will read more about in this report.
As you read through this report, I hope you will see that together we can overcome challenges and make a difference in the world.
May the triune God be with you and bless you always.
Your fellow servant of Christ,
Founder of GFA World
