WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World, www.gfa.org) founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan – Discussing what Christian leaders are saying about Gospel for Asia and Dr. K.P. Yohannan’s passion for Jesus, love for the “least of these,” and integrity.
Gospel for Asia, the organization Dr. KP Yohannan founded in 1979, has served the Lord faithfully in 18 countries in and around South Asia. Self-sacrifice Sacrificial living has always been a objective of Gospel for Asia, beginning with the founder’s office and extending to the thousands of partner-supported workers at home and in the field. K.P.’s passion for Jesus, love for the “least of these,” humility, and integrity have set a godly standard for others to follow.
However, no individual or institution is exempt from criticism, just or unjust. The faith-based missions organization headquartered 45 miles east of Dallas, Texas, is no exception.
The owner of a successful electronics manufacturing company once said, “The higher we raise our flag, the more people will shoot at it.” He made the statement when his company was relatively small. He was pondering the potential disparagement that he believed would surely follow on the heels of the company’s future growth.
His words were almost as accurately prophetic as were Jesus’ when He said, “In this world, you will have trouble” (John 16:33). The Bible also explains that trouble is just the first stepping stone on the path of patience, experience, hope, and enduring satisfaction. (Romans 5:4-5)
Yet, when criticism comes our way, we can almost always take comfort in the steadfast encouragement and endorsement of others.
Gospel for Asia is particularly encouraged by and thankful for the following comments from outstanding Christian leaders. Hopefully, you will be encouraged as well.
Dr. David Mains, pastor, author, and broadcaster:
“I have known and worked closely with Dr. K.P. Yohannan . . . [for] over four decades. … His preaching still stirs my soul. I believe 100% in his integrity.”
Francis Chan, pastor and author:
“K.P. has been a mentor to me for years. The way that he speaks to God and about Him is different from anyone else I know. His words and actions have led to me loving Jesus more consistently and deeply. He continues to be an example to me. For this, I am eternally grateful.”
Rev. Paul Louis Cole, president of Christian Men’s Network:
“Dr. K.P. Yohannan is a missionary statesman, a pastor to pastors, a mission leader to mission leaders, and a father to the fatherless. … In a unanimous decision, the CMN board presented Dr. Yohannan with the first annual Reggie White Fatherhood Award, to honor his demonstration for over 40 years of what it means to be a father by providing leadership to compassionate workers of faith and hope to the defeated.”
Greg Gordon, founder of Sermonindex.net:
Jeff Lutes, president and founder of International Harvesters for Christ, Canada:
“I have seen firsthand the work in Asia, the training of ministry leaders, churches, and Bridge of Hope centers. Frugality, simplicity, and godly wisdom is obvious in all the work. Everything is done for an eternal purpose with longevity of a church in mind where millions are experiencing Christ’s love who have never heard the name of Jesus. Dr. K.P. Yohannan has emulated this example of sacrifice and commitment to Jesus.”
“Gospel for Asia has been uniquely raised up ‘for such a time as this.’ Only God’s sovereign power could explain how ‘earthen vessels’ make such a dramatic difference. … Spending time with K.P. personally reiterated to me that it is all so simple: God loves Asia, and He demonstrates it every day through GFA.”
Only the Lord knows the opportunities He will have for Gospel for Asia. Consider becoming a prayer partner with a community of believers who have set aside their own lives to reach tens of thousands of others with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
