WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. YohannanDiscussing Marut and his family that was slowly crumbling under the weight of various trials, and the hope and answered prayers through a Gospel for Asia pastor.

Marut stared out the door of his shop where he sold snacks and various food items, his mind far from the work in front of him. He couldn’t stop thinking about the words of a television preacher he had heard that morning.

The Family Who Had Everything

Marut and his wife, Sahira, belonged to a privileged working class in Asia, and their family had no physical needs due to the profit from their successful grocery business. They lived in a comfortable city home, and both of their children, now full-grown, had been well educated during their childhood. Sahira often prayed, fasted and performed special rituals on her family’s behalf to please and keep the favor of their gods. Altogether, they led happy lives.

That changed only a few months after their daughter, Nakti, married. She had moved in with her new in-laws, as was customary, but they weren’t happy with her. Marut had spent a lot of time, money and effort to arrange a good marriage for his daughter and was deeply hurt when Nakti’s in-laws brought her back to his home one day. They said Nakti was unfit for their son, and they were returning her. Marut and Sahira begged the in-laws to receive Nakti back into their family, but to no avail. Nakti’s in-laws soon left, refusing to take her with them, and Nakti’s husband said nothing about the matter.

Discussing Marut and his family that was slowly crumbling under the weight of various trials, and the hope and answered prayers through a Gospel for Asia pastor.
The profit Marut made from his grocery store provided for everything he and his family members could want, but still they were troubled by their circumstances.

Meanwhile, though Marut and Sahira’s son had finished his postgraduate studies in computer science, he couldn’t find a job. The family that seemed to have everything was slowly crumbling apart. Marut and Sahira became so discouraged, in fact, that it began to affect their health.

To make matters worse, Marut’s mother, who also lived with Marut and Sahira, became very sick. She lived life confined to her bed, growing steadily weaker as the days passed.

Hope Found Through a TV Program

For five months, Marut agonized over his daughter’s well-being. One morning while working in his shop, Marut flipped through the TV channels. A certain program caught his attention. There on the screen, a preacher was sharing about the love of the Lord Jesus and praying for people with troubles and sicknesses. Marut didn’t fully understand everything the man on the screen said, but he couldn’t stop thinking about it. He wanted to know more, and he got his chance that afternoon when a familiar friend came to buy groceries from Marut.

The grocer had known Jwala, who was a Christian, for a long time. Marut immediately brought up the television program he had seen that morning, and Jwala happily explained to Marut what the TV preacher had been talking about. Jwala could tell Marut wanted to know more, so he offered to send his son, a Gospel for Asia pastor named Paul, to pray for Marut’s family.

This woman is relaxing as she watches TV, much like Marut was doing when he stumbled upon a Christian television program.

A Gospel for Asia Pastor’s Prayer Results in Miracles

When Pastor Paul visited Marut’s family a few days later, they were eager to hear more. Marut and Sahira told their guest about their troubles, so Paul prayed for them and explained in depth the miracle of Christ’s love and the forgiveness of sin in Jesus. Marut’s family came to understand the power of God during the pastor’s visit, and soon, they experienced His love for themselves.

That very evening, Nakti’s husband called and told her he would come to pick her up and take her back. True to his word, the young man came the next morning and brought her home. What’s more, Marut and Sahira’s son later asked for prayer and found a job to fit his computer skills, helping to construct skyscrapers abroad.

In time, even Marut’s mother began to heal. Her body gained strength, and she started to eat again. Looking at all the wonders the Lord performed in their lives, Marut, Sahira and the entire family believed Jesus is God and began praying to Him daily. In response to the Savior’s love for them, the couple removed all the vestiges of their former faith from their home and embraced their Heavenly Father.

Pastor Paul still visits Marut’s family often to pray with and encourage the family from the Word of God. He also receives calls from Marut’s son and prays for him while he’s working abroad, but Paul isn’t the only one encouraging people. Now Marut shares his testimony with others as he works in his shop and tells his customers about the God who loves them, in the hope that they, too, will find Jesus in his grocery store.

Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: Gospel for Asia pastors like Paul pray for all kinds of people and their needs. The pastor shown here is praying for the members of his congregation after a worship service.

Though Marut’s family members had everything they needed physically, Pastor Paul was able to minister to them when they needed it most. Through Paul’s prayer and encouragement, Marut and his family found comfort in the arms of God. You can help enable another missionary like Paul to bring true hope to the weary and discouraged.

WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan – Discussing Myo Zaw, a gospel for Asia missionary, and family who, despite the struggle and difficulty, through a burning love & desire for God, poured out their lives in love for others.

A

fire burned inside Myo Zaw. It was lit the day the Lord redeemed him, and it grew hotter and more intense every single day. He was like the prophet Jeremiah, unable to keep the love of Christ hidden within himself. If he tried, he felt restless, he felt sick.

Weary of holding it in, Myo Zaw shouted from the roadsides and in market places, “Christ [redeemed] me, and He will [redeem] you also!”

Discussing Myo Zaw, a gospel for Asia missionary, and family who, despite the struggle and difficulty, through a burning love & desire for God, poured out their lives in love for others.

People thought he had gone mad. Those in his community already knew him as a hot-blooded drunkard who fought with people and beat his wife and children, and now he proved his insanity.

“But I knew I was not mad,” Myo Zaw says. “The love of God just would not simply keep [quiet] in my heart. I wanted to pour it out and share it.”

Independently Ministering

Consumed by a fire that could not be put out, Gospel for Asia Missionary Myo Zaw traveled throughout his region, walking from place to place, sharing the Word of God. He told people “how a sinner like me was found by God.” In three years, he visited 100 communities. His wife, Shway, sent him letters while he was away to encourage him.

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: National Missionaries share the hope of Christ

“If your life can [be changed] by Christ, there is no one who cannot be changed by Christ,” she’d say. “So wherever you are going and sharing the Word of God, we are here to pray for you. I believe people will be changed by the love of Christ.”

And people were—350 of them. They heard of His great love and saw it lived out in His child, and it changed them.

Following Like Jesus: Gospel for Asia Missionary Network

Not long after, a man visited Myo Zaw’s village and shared about the different places in their country and how Jesus went to a foreign land, though heaven was His home.

The fire inside Myo Zaw intensified. He knew without any doubt that his life needed to be about sharing the Lord’s love with others. It was a powerful love that transformed him, and he knew others needed it, too.

Nearly 10 years later, God sent them to the southern region of their country through Gospel for Asia.
Myo Zaw (pictured) with his wife, Shway, and youngest son.

He told himself, “It is better that I go and give my life for the people in foreign lands.” So he and his wife prayed and prepared themselves to live in an area where people were unfamiliar with the Lamb of God.

Nearly 10 years later, God sent them to the southern region of their country as Gospel for Asia missionaries.

Forced Out of Community

In their new community, people quickly realized Myo Zaw and his family were Christians and decided they would have nothing to do with the new arrivals.

“We were [forced] out of community,” Pastor Myo Zaw says, “and it is very difficult to live without community.”

People threw stones at Myo Zaw’s home and threatened to penalize others if they spoke to the Christians. Even Myo Zaw’s young children faced discrimination at school because of their faith.

“Sometimes, when we would go to the market,” Pastor Myo Zaw recalls, “they’d look at us as if we were enemies. All these things we faced, but the Lord showed His grace upon us through which we are still OK now.”

Gospel for Asia Missionary: Love Turning Hearts

Myo Zaw, Shway and their children trusted Christ throughout the hardships, and with the Spirit’s fiery love pulsating within them, they learned how to love the people in their new community.

Myo Zaw’s wife, Shway, leading Sunday School in one of the local fellowships.

The pastor started with film ministry, showing people movies they enjoyed and also the film of Jesus’ life. The local children felt Myo Zaw’s and his wife’s warmth and began visiting them. Myo Zaw and Shway would give the young boys and girls treats, teach them songs and bathe the ones that came looking haggard.

The community watched how they cared for their children and wondered why this man and his wife loved them so much. Soon, people talked to them at the market, and Pastor Myo Zaw and Shway were able to reveal Christ’s love to them.

They cared for the sick and took people to the hospital when needed. When floodwaters destroyed homes and livelihoods, they and other Gospel for Asia workers helped provide relief. Pastor Myo Zaw frequently visited people to encourage them and offer words of life and hope in Christ Jesus. And people visited him as well.

God’s Most Powerful Weapon

“What I have found in my life is that love is the most powerful weapon we have from God.” —Myo Zaw
The fire God kindled within Myo Zaw on the first day of his redemption continues to burn brighter and hotter as the years pass.

“My love has become deeper for them. I care for them more,” he says of the people who are now his friends. “That’s why I don’t want to go back to my hometown. That is why I would like to sacrifice my whole life for them.”

After 14 years of displaying Christ’s love, people feel and understand Myo Zaw’s love for them and many return it. They’ve come to know that “everything I do is for them,” he says. And he does it because of Christ.

“What I have found in my life,” Myo Zaw says, “is that love is the most powerful weapon we have from God.”

WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. YohannanDiscussing the struggles many experience with having no access to clean water, the waterborne diseases they are exposed to, and the Gospel for Asia Pastor that brought a Jesus Well to his village.

M

orning came early for the villagers. They trudged down a dusty path as the heat began to rise with the sun, dawning a new day. The morning light exposed strange yellow and red stains inside the pots they carried by hand, or had lifted above their shoulders or they placed atop their heads. Those stains revealed an immense struggle in the villagers’ daily lives.

Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: Poor communities are in need of pure water.
The families in Pastor Sahay’s village, struggled to find good water, like these women. The pumps in their village brought forth dirty water and caused them to have health issues.

Muddy Water Leaves Marks on Vessels and Stomachs

The water in the village was not safe to drink. Hand pumps installed years prior gushed forth muddy, red-colored water. It was obvious this was the culprit to the stains inside the water pots. But it wasn’t just the villagers’ vessels that bore the mark of the undrinkable liquid; their continual stomachaches and kidney problems made the statement loud and clear. If they wanted clean water to drink, they had to wake early to search for it outside their village.

Pastor Brought a Jesus Well that Impacted a Village

Gospel for Asia pastor Sahay served in this village. He and his congregation distributed food once a month to the slum nearby. This impacted the community greatly, and many saw the love of Jesus through their simple acts of kindness. Pouring his life out faithfully unto the Lord, Pastor Sahay tried to help the community as much as he could. He was not unaware of the urgent and crucial need for clean water. Because someone gave to Gospel for Asia to help provide clean water for people in Asia, Pastor Sahay could take action; he introduced a Jesus Well to the village he loved so well.

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: After the Jesus Well in Pastor Sahay's village was completed (pictured), it was dedicated to the Lord. This well pours out clean water freely to those who come to it for a drink.
After the Jesus Well in Pastor Sahay’s village was completed (pictured), it was dedicated to the Lord. This well pours out clean water freely to those who come to it for a drink.

Once the drilling was underway, happiness filled the villagers who passed by, as they saw the church once again taking care of the community. This meant that soon, they wouldn’t struggle with waterborne illnesses, and they would have clear water coming from the hand pump.

The Jesus Well was placed in a convenient spot: right by the road, in a public area where anyone could acquire clean water. The Jesus Well was also right by a school, hospital, auto shop and the local market. A man named Tunava who ran a small food stand close by the well said, “I used to bring water from far away to wash the vessels and for the customers…now, I can get pure drinking water at any time, and it’s very close to my shop.”

Today, around 200 people drink refreshing, pure water from this well every day and are able to read God’s Word inscribed on the well’s plaque that speaks about the Living Water offered freely to all, taken from the passage found in John 4:13–14.

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: A local woman pumps water for her daily use from the new well on the day it was dedicated. Her family is no longer threatened by waterborne illness that had been impacting her community.

Jesus Well Stands as a Beacon of Hope to Community

Because of this act of kindness, many hearts have been touched, and families have desired to hear more about the love of Jesus. This opened doors for Pastor Sahay and his congregation to display more of the hope of Christ to those around them and share about the God who offers living water for their souls. The village chief was very grateful to Pastor Sahay and said, “I could not help my villagers by providing them with a hand pump. But thanks [to the church] for providing a Jesus Well for my community.”

A local man in the village was very touched by the gift of the Jesus Well and expressed his thanks saying, “I appreciate the work of the church for the community. These days, no one thinks of others, but the work the church is doing is really appreciable.”

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: Pure waterbrings hope
By receiving a Jesus Well in their community, many people get the chance to learn about the Living Water. One clean bucket of water could be a bucket full of hope!

The Living Water

This village now has a tangible reflection of the Living Water that Jesus offers every time they pump the clean, fresh water from the Jesus Well. No longer do they have to fear waterborne illnesses when they take a glass of its water. They’ve also had the opportunity to learn about God’s tremendous love. You can be part of giving hope in buckets of water by giving a Jesus Well today.

WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. YohannanDiscussing Ekanga and his wife, Pallivini, the challenges they face with her sickness, and God’s work through national missionaries and Gospel for Asia Medical Camp.

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: Discussing Ekanga, his wife, Pallivini, the challenges they face with her sickness,& God's work through national missionaries & Gospel for Asia Medical camp

E

kanga was worried about his wife. Though Pallavini took local remedies for healing, nothing helped. Many of the so-called treatments only made her worse. For more than a year, her bleeding continued, leaving her weaker and weaker as the months drew on. Ekanga feared Pallivini would die.

To make matters worse, the family lived in a notoriously dangerous village—one populated by robbers, thieves and bloodthirsty men. Every month, villagers would hear a report of someone being killed and robbed by the people of Ekanga’s village.

Ekanga had good cause to be worried.

When They Met the Pastor

A few months before Ekanga’s wife became sick, he met Gospel for Asia pastor Jacob. Although Ekanga called himself a Christian, he and his wife hadn’t been living like it. As Pastor Jacob and Ekanga talked, Ekanga told him plainly he wanted to start going to church. In July, Ekanga started attending Pastor Jacob’s church in the nearby village, and by December, he moved the family to that village, further away from the danger of their previous town.

Pallavini, whose medical issues started the month before they moved, wasn’t happy with the idea of her husband going to church. But God was working in her heart, and a year later, she went with Ekanga to church.

“Now I understand that God still loves me and my family,” she shared in front of the congregation that day. “That’s why today we, as a family, came here and worshipped the Lord together with you all.”

At the end of her testimony, Pallivini asked the congregation to pray for her well-being.

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: Pallavini received life-changing multivitamins at a Gospel for Asia medical camp led by a Women’s Fellowship team.
Pallavini received life-changing multivitamins at a Gospel for Asia medical camp led by a Women’s Fellowship team.

Medical Camp Helps Bring Healing

The next day, the Women’s Fellowship team at Pastor Jacob’s church had planned a medical camp. Pallivini went with about 30 other women. They each received multivitamin tablets and learned a few basic things about health.

One week later, Pallavini could hardly contain her joy.

“Thank you for the medicine that you have given to me,” she said.

“After taking those vitamin tablets, I feel better. I have started to feel hungry and eat more. The bleeding and pain have even gone from my body. From the day I took those vitamin tablets, I also could sleep well at night, without any pain.”

Praise God for moving in Ekanga’s and Pallavini’s lives! Their testimony is just one among many who have been touched and blessed through the ministries of Gospel for Asia, which you are part of through your prayers and donations. Thank you so much for standing with us to impact lives around the world.

WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. YohannanDiscussing Safal, the loneliness and pain of growing up without guidance and love, and the Gospel for Asia Pastor who shared the love of Jesus who can heal his pain and bring him peace.

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: Discussing Safal, the loneliness & pain of having absent parents, and the Gospel for Asia Pastor who shared the love of Jesus, bringing him healing & peace.

Sweat rolled down Safal’s skin. He ran after the ball again, aiming for a goal. From the outside, Safal looked like an outstanding and accomplished young soccer player, but inside he felt alone and without peace.

The Gospel for Asia pastor Jaitra understood where this young athlete was coming from. He once felt emptiness ravage his seeking heart. He once was searching, too. He once wasn’t satisfied with his life. But now he had something to share—something Safal would soon see and change the very course of his life forever.

Like the little boys in this picture, Safal played soccer from an early age.

Growing Up Without a Mom

Safal and his brothers grew up without their mother’s love and care. She left the family when her sons were just little boys and never returned. Her absence drove their father to the bottle in his attempts to cope with his life. His aim to drown out his sorrows resulted in him becoming a drunkard. As a consequence of his parents’ neglect, Safal grew up without guidance and love, and a cavernous void formed in his heart.

Just like these men are playing soccer on a team, Safal grew up excelling in the sport. Even though he was good at soccer and made it priority in his life, he never felt satisfied or completely fulfilled in it. He had deep void in his heart that never went away.

Using Soccer to Escape Pain

To fill the void in his life, Safal dedicated his energy and time to soccer. As a young boy, he was a natural and played the sport with distinction and great skill. He started off humble, but as he continued to excel, he became arrogant in his soccer pursuits. His love of the sport took priority in his life.

Many young boys respected and looked up to him, but the admiration they showed him did not heal Safal’s aching heart. Despite his popularity, he felt alone. He didn’t believe in God or the traditional rituals his family practiced. He had never been taught how to love, and though he succeeded in soccer, he was always discouraged and sad.

Faithful Friend Prays for Young Athlete

Among Safal’s best friends was a Christian young man who went to Pastor Jaitra’s church. His name was Balaraj, and he stood faithfully by Safal’s side. He shared the love of Christ with him often and prayed without fail for Safal, even when he rejected the message of hope he shared. Balaraj’s loving heart reflected Jesus, and he continued to pray constantly that Safal would truly understand God’s love.

One day, Balaraj noticed Safal looking especially depressed, so he asked his friend, “What happened to you?”

Safal didn’t reply right away, but later he said, “I am really sad and alone. I have no mother, and my father is a drunkard, so I have no peace in my heart.”

After hearing from Safal, Balaraj called his pastor to pray for him. Pastor Jaitra shared the hope and peace of Jesus with Safal and encouraged him from the Word of God. Pastor Jaitra knew as a young man what it felt like to have no peace, and he was able to share, deep from his heart, that there is hope for the seeking heart.

“Safal, don’t worry,” Pastor Jaitra reassured him. “Jesus loves you and cares for you. We are with you, and we, too, love you.”

Before leaving, Safal took some literature from Pastor Jaitra and said he would come to church if he had time.

God knew how much Safal needed his faithful friend, Balaraj. Just like these two good friends are enjoying tea together, Balaraj stood by Safal’s side and prayed for him continually, even when he rejected the hope of Jesus.

Entering Church for the First Time

Much to the joy and amazement of Pastor Jaitra, Safal arrived with Balaraj for the very next church service.

Safal stepped inside the building—it was the first time he had ever entered a church. Having never experienced a Christian service, he felt a little uneasy as he watched the believers worship Jesus. When the singing was over, Pastor Jaitra introduced Safal to the congregation to welcome him.

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: The Gospel for Asia pastor Jaitra was there when Safal shared the longing in his heart for love. Safal found that Jesus can heal his pain and bring him peace.
The Gospel for Asia pastor Jaitra (pictured) was there when Safal shared the longing in his heart for love. Safal found that Jesus can heal his pain and bring him peace.

Then the young athlete listened to the message Pastor Jaitra shared from God’s Word. He found himself deeply moved as the Lord began to work within him. At the end of the service, Safal told Pastor Jaitra, “Today’s message really touched my heart. I want to experience [Jesus’] abundant love in my daily life.”

With great joy, Pastor Jaitra prayed for Safal and encouraged him with Scipture. This was the beginning of their friendship. Through the mentoring of Pastor Jaitra, Safal has grown strong in the Lord, and his heart’s desire is to serve and love the Lord with his life.

Safal no longer focuses solely on sports, nor does he struggle with depression and feeling unloved. Instead, he wants to show Christ’s love to others by being an example to many who feel the emptiness in their hearts, as he once did. He knows God can fill hungry hearts with His everlasting love.

Messengers of Christ’s Hope

There are many people, like Safal, in the world today who feel lost and alone. Praise the Lord, Jesus has come to bring us hope and life in Him! Through faithful servants like Pastor Jaitra, Jesus is making Himself known to these precious people. You can be part of touching lives with the love of Christ by praying for and sponsoring a national missionary today.

WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. YohannanDiscussing Madira and her suffering brought by a mysterious illness, the search for healing found in a forgotten Bible, and a Gospel for Asia missionary and the believers who shared God’s love, life and hope.

Discussing Madira, a mysterious illness, the search for healing found in a Bible, and a Gospel for Asia missionary & believers who shared God's love & hope.
A Bible and a Gospel for Asia Missionary bring God’s hope into a desperate situation.

Madira lay bedridden and hopeless. The witch doctors had given up. The medical treatments didn’t work. And now, six years of pain marked her life. Her thoughts yearned and searched for some ray of hope—something that would bring her healing. Then her thoughts turned to an event that happened 16 years ago.

She called her son over. “Now listen to me clearly,” she told him, “and do what I say.”

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: Madira and her family lived happy lives until she began suffering with an unknown illness that left her unable to move her body with ease. She did everything the witch doctors told her to do, but after six years, the witch doctors gave up hope of her ever recovering.
Madira (pictured) and her family lived happy lives until she began suffering with an unknown illness that left her unable to move her body with ease. She did everything the witch doctors told her to do, but after six years, the witch doctors gave up hope of her ever recovering.

When the Witch Doctors Gave Up

Madira’s family life wasn’t perfect, but they pressed on through the hard times. They grew more financially stable over the years, especially after her husband, Chakor, got a job as a police officer. With his new income, they were even able to build a better house for their family of five.

Madira learned in her childhood to honor, respect and adore her traditional religion. She was devoted to her gods and goddesses and turned to them for help in times of need. Such a time came for Madira when she experienced a peculiar, unknown sickness. Pain wracked her body, and normal movements brought deep discomfort.

Chakor gave his wife the best medical help he could, hoping she would recover quickly. But months dragged on to years, and her condition remained unchanged. They had no peace. Chakor and Madira did everything the witch doctors prescribed in hopes of finding relief from what was attacking Madira’s body. After six years, even the witch doctors gave up. They said her sickness was beyond their control.

Discovering the Hidden Treasure of God’s Word

In desperation, Madira’s mind turned to the day, many years ago, when her brother had given her a special gift. It was time to unveil the hidden treasure and try something new.

Now she wondered, with a new sense of courage,
who was this Jesus?

Pulling her son aside, she said, “My son, we have done everything we could, but nothing is working. Now, listen to me clearly and do what I say. Bring the Bible, which was given by my brother, and read it for me. I would like to listen to it.”

As her son took the old, neglected book in his hands and read the holy words of God something happened: The moment Madira heard what her son read aloud, pain left her aching body. Madira slept through the night, and she could move without struggle or discomfort. Madira now had a peace she hadn’t felt before. The words brought healing to her weary body. Now she wondered, with a new sense of courage, who was this Jesus?

After that day, Madira and her family searched for a church where they could learn more about God, whose written Word caused such an immediate change in Madira’s condition. Maybe this God would completely heal her?

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: After reading the Bible that Madira’s brother had given them 16 years prior, Madira felt better. After this, Madira’s family wanted to know more about the God they had read about.

Learning About the Healer

One day they met Seth, one of our national missionaries serving in their area. When they explained their problems, he shared about the love of Jesus and told them how Jesus is the Great Healer and Restorer.

“If you believe in the name of Jesus Christ, you will be healed,” he told them.

Discouraged after years of disappointing treatments, they responded, “We have done everything, but nothing is working out.”

GFA World founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan
When Seth, a national missionary, introduced the family to his pastor, they all were encouraged, and the congregation began to pray for Madira earnestly. Soon, the Lord healed her completely!

Seth encouraged them not to worry, because God is able to make impossible things possible for those who believe in His name. After finding no hope elsewhere, the family decided they wanted to go to church to learn about the love of God.

Finding Comfort Through the Body of Christ

Their new friend introduced them to Gospel for Asia pastors and believers, and many prayers rose up on Madira’s behalf. From that day, Madira felt great relief. The believers prayed for her and her family regularly, and within a few weeks, Madira received complete healing! God had answered their prayers.

Now Madira is a testimony of God’s might and of His Word, which remains living and powerful. After 16 years of keeping a treasure, they finally understood its precious value. God waited patiently for them to realize His awesome love for them, and now they are living in His life and hope.

Give Unfading Treasures

Just like Madira and her family, many families in Asia are being impacted by the greatest treasure that shall never perish—God’s Word. But many others still wait to receive this gift. You can be part of putting this precious treasure in the hands of more families in Asia!

WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. YohannanDiscussing Kvanh, the loneliness and darkness of his sinful living, and the Gospel for Asia Radio that changed his life forever.

Kvanh grew up in a harsh mountain climate, toiling away alongside his family to cultivate land for their livelihood. Unable to go to school, Kvanh spent his time studying religious books with his father.

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: Discussing Kvanh, the loneliness and darkness of his sinful living, and the Gospel for Asia Radio that changed his life forever.
A Gospel for Asia radio program about Jesus reached the lonely Kvanh as he sat in his shop waiting for customers. He found hope in the message, and when he met a national missionary, Kvanh felt he was meeting a friend.

When Kvanh was 20, his family pressured him to marry—something he knew he wasn’t ready for, but it was impossible for him to fight against the tradition of marrying young. The fear of not being able to provide for a wife and build a happy home gnawed at his heart. As a young husband, Kvanh worked day and night in the fields to support his wife. He even picked up additional labor jobs when he could find them, but his wife often complained that he didn’t do enough. Her criticism made Kvanh despair of their marriage ever being happy, though he loved his wife dearly. One day, Kvanh’s wife left him for another man, and his nightmare became reality.

Loneliness, anger and mental anguish consumed Kvanh. Afraid the young man might go insane, Kvanh’s family scraped together enough money to send him abroad to escape the memories that haunted him.

Kvanh found himself in a bustling city with millions of people—yet still alone. He found work in the construction industry and abandoned himself to a hedonistic life, satisfying the urges of today in exchange for a peaceful future.

Moving Home, yet Loneliness Followed

After 25 years of wasting his life one day at a time, Kvanh wearied of carrying on in this way. He decided to go back home. With the small amount he had managed to save, Kvanh opened a small shop in his childhood village. His shop, not very popular, left Kvanh sitting alone with a lot of time to think. He often turned on the radio for company, spending hours with the radio hosts of various shows.

One day, while switching the radio dial, he heard someone say the name “Jesus.” He paused his scrolling and listened intently about remission of sins through the sacrifice of Jesus. His heart burned within him as the radio host taught about the very questions that Kvanh had been struggling with for so long. He learned that cleansing of sin was possible and peace with God attainable, the very things that had always eluded Kvanh.

As the preacher kept sharing, he quoted a verse that burst within Kvanh like a shower of fireworks: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. Kvanh felt tears streaming down his face as he realized God loved him and made a way for his sins to be forgiven through His Son.

Companions for the Journey

Kvanh wanted to know more about Jesus who did so much for him, but he wasn’t sure how. Then, one day when he was sitting at his shop waiting for the customers who seldom came, a man approached him and introduced himself as Pastor Milit from the nearby church. Kvanh, recognizing the name of the church, asked the man if he knew the radio speaker who had impacted his life so much. Indeed, Pastor Milit did know him!

Kvanh felt an instant connection to the friend of the radio preacher, and he shared his life story with Pastor Milit, detailing the ups and downs and the valleys of darkness he had walked through all alone. Pastor Milit’s heart grew tender for this man who had lived his life seeking pleasure but always had found loneliness instead.

Kvanh and Pastor Milit became fast friends and talked about God and His path for Kvanh’s life.

Kvanh, now living in the reality of God’s love and forgiveness, has become an active member in Pastor Milit’s church. The church members have become a family for Kvanh. What a blessing for a man who lived in the dark cave of loneliness for most of his life, who now has a Father in heaven, a brother in Jesus and brothers and sisters in the church walking with him day by day.

WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. YohannanDiscussing an Irishwoman’s faith & legacy that continues to touch thousands of people by providing clean water through Gospel for Asia Jesus Wells.

Discussing an Irishwoman's faith & legacy that continues to touch thousands of people in India by providing clean water through Gospel for Asia (founded by K.P. Yohannan) Jesus Wells.

Not too long ago, there was a village characterized by a desperate struggle for survival. People lived in poverty and at risk of disease. But there was an even more pressing problem: In the hot, dry desert, there were not enough water sources to go around. The villagers depended on dirty ponds and rivers. Sometimes, it was difficult to find water at all.

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: Jesus Well is providing clean waterPastor Dalapathi ministered in this village and was deeply concerned about the people’s situation. While he worked hard to share Christ’s love with the people, it was difficult to break through, and he could see they desperately needed clean water.

Providing Clean Water, Hope Through a Well

By God’s grace, Gospel for Asia Pastor Dalapathi and the believers did not lose hope. Instead, they prayed and something changed: God provided a Jesus Well for their village. It was an amazing answer to prayer. Suddenly, the villagers had clean, safe water ready and accessible. But this gift had a far greater impact.

“The non-believers of the village were astonished by the good work that has been done by the church,” said one field report.

And this tangible act of love warmed hearts to learning more.

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: Jesus Well brings hope

Because of a Jesus Well, things are very different now. And 109 other villages have been changed in similar ways.

But the story didn’t start here.

A “Wee Woman” with a Big Impact

Discussing an Irishwoman's faith & legacy that continues to touch thousands of people in India by providing clean water through Gospel for Asia Jesus Wells.This story started far away in Northern Ireland, United Kingdom. It’s the story of a woman who loved Jesus more than the things of this world and left a legacy that is changing the lives of thousands . . . perhaps forever.

Very kind. Funny. A little eccentric. These are all words used to describe Mae Coulter. A woman with a passionate witness for Jesus, who loved Him “beyond reason.” A remarkable “wee woman” (as they say in Northern Ireland), only around 5 feet and 1 inch in stature. But her life touched literally thousands of people whom she never even met.

When a House Was Born Again

Born in Northern Ireland, Mae’s life was checkered with tragedy. She moved to England with her husband, Les, and had been married only a short while when he died suddenly and unexpectedly. He went outside to get Mae’s birthday present, and she never got to speak to him again.

After that tragedy, Mae found Christ. Soon afterwards, she returned to Northern Ireland, where she bought a house.

Then disaster struck again. A house fire destroyed all of Mae’s possessions. Family photographs. Household treasures. Everything was gone in a matter of minutes.

That event changed Mae’s perspective completely. As a close friend, Marilyn, explained, “She decided that never again would she store up anything. It could just be gone. Anything she had would go into something that was lasting, that was kingdom building.”

Mae’s house had to be reconstructed inside. That was when Mae erected a plaque outside it that simply said, “Born Again.”

“She used to say that she had been born again, and so had her house,” Marilyn reflects. “It gave her opportunities to share the Gospel with people who visited her.”

Choosing to Live Differently

From then on, Mae’s focus was on eternity. She saw no need for accumulating things in this world.

“Always invest in something that’s going to be long lasting,” Marilyn recalls Mae saying.

Mae threw herself into serving others. She sent shoeboxes of presents to disadvantaged children and went daily to make meals for a friend who couldn’t make them herself. Every Christmas, she bought gifts for desperate people in Asia, in honor of her friends. Mae believed deeply in providing clean water. “If people had clean water,” she would say, “then sickness would be eliminated.” And she thought of a way to provide thousands with just that.

A Legacy that Will Last

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: Jesus Well blesses the whole communityAs Mae got older, she made preparations for her departure from this world and into the presence of Christ. To Marilyn, Mae explained clearly what she wanted: a simple black stone upon the coffin that said, “Mae Coulter, with the Lord.” Nothing else was needed. That said it all.

But that wasn’t all Mae had planned. When Mae went to be with the Lord, she left a legacy to be divided between two charities she had loved and faithfully supported. It included enough to dig 110 Jesus Wells.

Mae gave the money in faith, with no idea what it could accomplish.

“She was just doing what she could,” Marilyn says. “She would be astounded if she knew the number of people who have benefited from that. Her generosity will benefit many who never knew her or her them.”

And they really are benefiting. Now, in 110 villages, downtrodden villagers who once trekked to filthy water sources have access to clean, safe water . . . and a signpost to the Water of Life. It’s changing their lives forever.

WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. YohannanDiscussing widowed mother Chamudi, the sickness and hunger, sheer hopelessness unto thoughts of suicide, and the encounter with one of our pastors that God use to bring life.

Suicide. The thought pulsed in Chamudi’s mind as relentlessly as the hunger that gnawed in her stomach. Completely broken at the thought of her children’s suffering, Chamudi decided today was the day to end it all—for herself and for her children.

A Hole in the Broken Heart of a Widowed Mother

Twice in 10 years, illnesses turned Chamudi’s world upside down. First, her husband died from a brain tumor, thrusting her into the life of a single mother in a culture that often looked down upon widows. Second, Chamudi received terrible news: She had a hole in her heart.

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: Discussing widowed mother Chamudi, the hunger & thoughts of suicide, and the encounter with a Gospel for Asia supported pastor that God use to bring life.
Chamudi, like this widow, could not provide food for her children. Her heart broke over the suffering of her children.

The doctors told her she should not do hard labor or get tired, and unless she received an operation, she would soon die. Desperate for a way to provide for her children, but severely limited in what she could do, Chamudi searched for any light work she could find. She washed dishes and served as a maid, but hunger crept into her home and became a consistent part of life. If she was unable to regularly put food on the table for her precious children, then there was no way she could buy medication to help her condition.

Chamudi was in turmoil. She was going to die, and misery would taint however many more days she had left. Her stomach ached unbearably. She thought of her young children—if enduring hunger caused such agony for her, a grown woman, how much more difficult it must be for her young, confused children? And once she was gone, her children would suffer even more. They would be alone, vulnerable against any who would seek to exploit them.

As bleak as the present was, the future looked even worse to Chamudi.

Buying Death

One morning, Chamudi again found no food for her children’s breakfast and could bear it no longer. She knew of only one way to end all their pain—suicide. If she couldn’t help her children live with peace, she could give them peace through death.

They would drink poison and be free from pain together. Yes, that was the solution. She found no help from her gods, and she had no one to turn to. Better to end it all now, she thought.

Rather than face slow starvation, Chamudi decided suicide would be a better end for herself and her children.

Through her cloud of hopelessness, she realized she didn’t even have money to buy poison. Chamudi slumped onto the only bench she had in her house and thought about how she could earn enough to bring about her family’s death.

Life Comes Knocking

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: When our pastor Alak visited Chamudi's home, she revealed her decision to commit suicide that very day.
When our pastor Alak visited Chamudi’s home, she revealed her decision to commit suicide that very day. Pastor Alak (pictured here during his early days of ministry nearly 20 years ago) spoke to her broken heart and encouraged her to seek peace from Jesus.

From her position on her bench, Chamudi watched in surprise as a man dressed in black pants and a white shirt came walking toward her house. She didn’t recognize the middle-aged stranger. Rising from her seat, Chamudi curiously approached him.

He introduced himself as Alak, the Gospel for Asia (GFA) pastor of a local congregation. He offered the disheartened woman some literature, which sparked a conversation about Jesus and the new life Christ offers.

As they talked, Chamudi shared about her poverty and hopeless situation, and she eventually disclosed to him her intention of killing herself and her children that very day. Taking the timely opportunity God provided to minister to Chamudi, Pastor Alak prayed earnestly for her and encouraged her to trust in Jesus.

Chamudi’s religious convictions forbad her from going to a Christian worship service, but as she learned more about God’s redeeming love and listened to Pastor Alak’s prayer, peace entered her heart. She found a dose of hope that day, and she decided to learn more about the One who sent someone to her to keep her from death.

The Restoring Power of God

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: Touched by God's mercy and kindness, Chamudi and her children underwent complete transformation at the hand of God.
Touched by God’s mercy and kindness, Chamudi and her children (pictured) underwent complete transformation at the hand of God.

Chamudi and her children started visiting Pastor Alak’s congregation, bringing their troubles and sorrows to the Lord. Soon, Chamudi found a small business she could run from her home! She received cloth from a factory and sewed children’s clothing. The work was gentle, and her new income enabled her to feed her children.

Hope filled Chamudi’s heart, as well as love for the God who provided for her family. She continued learning about the Lord through the local church, and her love for Jesus impelled her to ask Him to adopt her into His family and give her new life.

Finding work was just the beginning of the answers to prayer Chamudi received. When Chamudi went to the hospital to buy medication with her new earnings, the doctors said her condition had improved! And just as the Lord sent Pastor Alak to Chamudi’s house on the day she planned to die, He later sent another man to impact Chamudi’s life—except this one married her. Athula, who worked at the factory where Chamudi received her cloth, linked his life with Chamudi and her children, helping support them and walking alongside them as they journey closer to Jesus together as a family.

A Vessel for God’s Use

Chamudi experienced God’s restoring power in incredible ways, all because one national missionary made himself available to be used by God to touch lives.

WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. YohannanDiscussing GFA’s ministry as seen through several videos.

Forty-one years ago, the Lord began answering the prayers of a young man from India, his wife and a few Christian friends who shared a burden for the millions of people in Asia who had never heard of Jesus. Little did they realize the magnitude of the ministry the Lord would initiate and prosper through their sacrificial service—or how technology would enable the Body of Christ to glimpse God’s handiwork on other side of the globe.

Gospel for Asia founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan: As you watch these videos, may you be encouraged by the Lord’s work in Asia. Thank you for praying for the people of Asia & for GFA's ministry among them.

GFA’s Ministry Sees Multitudes Transformed

After the publication of Dr. K.P. Yohannan’s impactful book Revolution in World Missions, the ministry thrived beyond imagination. Thousands of readers have felt God prompting them to partner with GFA, and as a result, millions in Asia have heard about the life-changing peace and joy that only Jesus can give.

Yet very few of us will ever get to travel across the world to a rural village or crowded slum in Asia to personally see the difference God is making through GFA-supported workers.

Thanks to the now commonly-used technology unavailable at the beginning of the 21st century, however, the entire world can see with their own eyes the needs of Asia’s people and how the Lord is working through GFA-supported workers to minister as Jesus’ hands and feet.

Gospel for Asia invites readers to watch the videos and playlists on its YouTube channel. See and hear stories that will both break and bless your heart. Check out a few of these brief GFA YouTube videos to gain a glimpse of Asia and of the lives God is touching for His glory.

Forgotten Islands No Longer Forgotten” People on this group of islands in Asia survive through backbreaking work and have few opportunities for improvement. Forgotten by most of society, they’re highly susceptible to waterborne illness, tiger attacks and many other threats. But a team of GFA-supported national workers is bringing hope to these islanders.

How a Jesus Well Transformed Lives in India” The need for clean water amid the global water crisis, especially in parts of Asia and India, cannot be overstated. GFA’s ministry, through the provision of clean water wells and water filters, is saving the lives of children, mothers and fathers across Asia. And we’re saving these families’ time so children can attend school more often, mothers can do more with their time and fathers are healthy more often to keep working.

From Trials to Triumph: Tapan’s Testimony” Pastor Tapan’s story brings Jesus’ words in John 16:33 to life. From the moment he committed to following Christ, to his time of looking death in the face through severe illness, Pastor Tapan testifies that God truly transforms trials and torment to victory and triumph.

Visit a Bridge of Hope Center with KP Yohannan” We invite you to join Gospel for Asia’s founder, Dr. K.P. Yohannan, in his behind-the-scenes tour of a GFA-supported Bridge of Hope center in Mumbai. See the difference these centers are making in the lives of many children in Asia.

Mula: A Widow’s Story” After Mula’s husband died, Mula and her four children were struggling to survive. The Lord showed His provision to them through GFA’s Bridge of Hope program and free tailoring classes. Eventually, His peace transformed their hearts.

The Stick Gatherer – No Longer A Slumdog” Watch this gripping story as Dr. K.P. Yohannan shares the story of a young boy who ended up in a GFA-supported Bridge of Hope center. Jesus said, “Whatever you do for the least of these, you do unto me.”

My Visit to a Leprosy Colony” Ashley shares about her visit to a leprosy colony where she got to see Gospel for Asia’s leprosy ministry in action. While she visited with the patients, Ashley watched GFA-supported national missionaries serve the patients by cleaning their wounds. Residents of the colony were despised by society, but national missionaries showed God’s love to them by treating them with dignity and concern.

Pastor Marty – Growing Up in the Slums” Do you remember your childhood? Pastor Marty does. He grew up in the slums of Mumbai in extreme poverty. Through many hardships, Marty lost all hope—until he encountered the love of Jesus in a genuine and practical way: the healing of his son. After graduating from a Bible college, he returned to the slum he grew up in and began passionately sharing Jesus’ love with those who are struggling.

Watch and Pray

As you watch these videos, may you be encouraged by the Lord’s beautiful work in Asia. Thank you for praying for the people of Asia and for GFA’s ministry among them.
