What Christian Leaders & Media Are Saying About GFA

George Verwer


"Gospel for Asia is not a movement but a phenomenon. GFA has become one of the most significant mission organizations of this century.

"I praise God for the great love and commitment of K.P. and Gisela Yohannan for the people of Asia. Millions have received the Word of God because of them and the ministry of Gospel for Asia."

—George Verwer, founder of Operation Mobilization and world missions advocate

Ajith Fernando


"I am grateful for the training that Gospel for Asia has given to many evangelists who are effectively reaping the ripe harvest fields of Sri Lanka."

—Ajith Fernando, teaching director of Youth for Christ in Sri Lanka

Barbara Dowling


"[On my trip], I learned that the far reaching effect of GFA's work in South Asia is beyond what I imagined. … I really saw God's hands and feet in the GFA missionaries. I learned that this is an extremely well-run ministry to God's glory. … You can see God's blessing on the ministry with much fruit of labor and finances to enable the work on the ground.

"I heard firsthand about lives changed in young missionary men and women and in children's lives and their families'.

"I saw the gifts of bikes and sewing machines used to change lives for people.

"I was touched by the overriding image of Jesus' love for the people glowing from the missionaries in each ministry we visited. I felt myself responding to the people I met with God's love flowing through me in a new and meaningful way.

"I was impacted greatly seeing the surrendering of people to Christ to do His work. Seeing God's work in people's lives reminded me what He can do in my own life with a fully surrendered heart."

—Barbara Dowling, sales manager at 93.7 Faith FM, Ontario, Canada

David Mains


"For half my life I have known and worked closely with Dr. K.P. Yohannan … that's over four decades.

"From its early days up until the present I have witnessed firsthand the incredible growth of the Believers Eastern Church throughout Asia. It is an amazing testimony to the life-changing power of the Gospel and also to K.P.'s remarkable leadership skills.

"I have seen his understanding of the Christian faith expand in ever so many positive ways. More recently, I have watched him respond humbly to the criticisms of those who for whatever reasons have attacked him.

"His preaching still stirs my soul.

"I believe 100% in his integrity and am honored to serve as one of GFA's Board of Directors."

—Dr. David R. Mains, Chapel of the Air radio broadcaster and founder of the 50-Day Spiritual Adventure

Paul Louis Cole


"Dr. K.P. Yohannan is a missionary statesman, a pastor to pastors, a mission leader to mission leaders, and a father to the fatherless. At Christian Men's Network, we look for deserving men around the world to highlight as role models for our Global Fatherhood Initiative. My introduction to Dr. Yohannan was reading Against the Wind, Finishing Well in a World of Compromise, which stirred me deeply. 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."

—Rv. Paul Louis Cole, D.Th., president of Christian Men's Network

Pastor Everett Flight


"I have been associated with this ministry for eight to 10 years in different ways. Their Canadian leadership has been at our church, and I have distributed hundreds of books among our church congregation.

"I am deeply moved by the heart and passion of this ministry's personnel, from K.P. Yohannan to the Canadian office leadership. My wife and I have been sponsoring a national missionary for a good number of years because we believe in its principles. This ministry will inform, challenge and stir your people concerning the vast needs in worldwide missions."

—Pastor Everett Flight, Ontario, Canada

Jeff Lutes


"I traveled to South Asia and discovered 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. ...

"The faces of shining students receiving love reflect the dynamic difference the Holy Spirit makes. An elderly man was jumping for joy because of the dignity restored to him in empowering him to provide for himself. A single mother enabled to support her family was teaching 15 other women a trade. Clean water in Jesus' name is a marvel! I could go on and on to speak of the amazing Bible schools and the remarkable changes occurring. Suffice it to say, spending time with Brother K.P. personally reiterated to me that it is all so simple: God loves Asia, and He demonstrates it every day through GFA."

—Rev. Jeff Lutes, president and founder of International Harvesters for Christ, Canada

Shawna Rogers


"We became aware of Gospel for Asia about 10 years ago when some in our fellowship read K.P. Yohannan's book Revolution in World Missions and were impacted by its message. Now this book is standard reading for our missions committee and anyone interested in overseas work. Yohannan continues to challenge existing paradigms of ministry and leads us to enlarge our worldview, which includes supporting national missionaries."

—Shawna Rogers, assistant pastor of River Valley Wesleyan Church
