It’s 4:30 in the morning. The sun has not yet crested the horizon. A young seminary student rises from bed and heads to the kitchen. Today’s agenda? Cook and distribute thousands of meals to people in need of food. Monday, October 16, was World Food Day, and across the globe, individuals and organizations reached out in compassion to their communities. Gospel for Asia-supported workers and Bible college students cooked and distributed meals to more than 2,500 people throughout Asia. They traveled… Read more

What was on your mind when you were 6 years old? Maybe your thoughts were taken up by bicycles, stuffed animals and your next snack. That was not the case for young Pria, a little girl from a poor family in Asia. Her perky pigtails held no big hair bows, and special treats were few and far between. But something more important was missing: a hopeful future. An Unpromising Beginning Since the first moment of her existence, Pria’s life could… Read more

It’s Throwback Thursday, y’all! So Gospel for Asia is going to take you back to the ‘80s now—without the acid-wash jeans or VCR. Ready for it? Check it out. I believe that beneath that stoic face and stately posture lived a passion to see lives changed by the love of Jesus.

With our headlines screaming about one disaster after another—fires in the California hills, hurricanes, flooding, drought and warming seas rising—and with the increasing incidents of gun violence here in the States and of terrorism activating itself in the Middle East, the near East and in Europe, it is easy to forget there is good news happening beyond this barrage of warnings, distress signals and red flags flying. One of the great news notices a majority of people have missed is… Read more

Manjira’s face lit up when she saw the Gospel for Asia-supported pastor. It had been only a few days since their last meeting where he had given her—and many others like her—a gift she couldn’t afford: a blanket. “I don’t have enough blankets to keep my children warm in winter,” the 32-year-old woman expressed. “But your church has given me a beautiful and large size blanket that helps us sleep peacefully.

After a long day’s work, you are probably ready for a hearty dinner, a refreshing drink and maybe even a hot shower. Perhaps you have a book propped open on your table to enjoy before you curl up on your comfortable bed for a good night’s sleep. But for more than 10 percent of mankind, these luxuries are far beyond reach. That is why, 25 years ago, the UN declared Oct. 17 as the International Day for the Eradication of… Read more

For those of us who love words—and for whom numbers are a kind of ugly stepbrother—the data, nevertheless, often speaks for itself. In some parts of India, for instance, the ratio of 1,000 men per 800 women is due to routine female murders through infanticide, gender-based abortion, the dowry system where some 10,000 women are murdered annually when they cannot provide the required capitol for marriage, or/and the lack of proper medical care. In 2013, mortality rates of Indian women… Read more

It’s been impossible to escape any news relating to natural disasters recently. Hurricane Harvey flooded homes in the gulf coast of Texas. Hurricane Irma left thousands in Florida without power. Hurricane Maria wreaked havoc in Puerto Rico, with 83 percent of the island still without power and 36 percent currently without water. An earthquake in Mexico took the lives of 360 people and left thousands homeless. Fires are currently ravaging homes in California. Natural disasters happen. There’s no stopping them…. Read more
