A national missionary with two sturdy feet, a strong voice and a compassionate heart is a powerful tool for the Lord. We can help them be even more effective by providing ministry tools that will assist them in reaching the lost.
Open-air meetings are one of the most common ways national missionaries proclaim the Gospel in villages. With a bullhorn, a missionary can be heard up to a mile away while keeping his voice from going hoarse.
Winter Clothing Packet
What better present for a national missionary or family living in the cold mountain regions than warm winter clothing! Imagine a family's joy at opening a package that includes a warm jacket, sweater, shawl, blanket and, in certain regions, socks and gloves. For just $40, you can enable parents and missionaries to work throughout the winter while their families are protected from the cold.
Everyone loves a good story—especially one that's true and life-changing. Millions of children in Asia would love to hear the story of Jesus even once. For just $5, your gift of VBS materials for one of these precious children will guarantee that he or she will hear about Jesus' love again and again through skits, Bible songs and teaching. They will also have colorful Gospel literature to take home.
Mobile Public Address System
Open-air meetings are one of the most common ways national missionaries proclaim the love of Christ in villages. With a mobile public address system, a missionary can be clearly heard by hundreds of villagers at once. You can give a mobile public address system for $375.
$10 for Bibles and New Testaments
A chance to read the Bible on their own is a gift that every national missionary wants to give the people they minister among. You can provide a missionary and the believers he disciples with Bibles and New Testaments.
Equipped Missionary Vehicle
Fully equipped vehicle—complete with an Indian-made film on the life of Christ, an LCD projector, generator, mobile public address system, Gospel tracts, Bibles and flip charts—is $21,000.
How do you show a movie about Jesus in a rural village that doesn't have electricity? You bring your own! In addition to powering film teams, generators are also a key part of Bible colleges, church conventions and pastors' meetings. Help share the Gospel by giving a missionary a generator for only $1,800.
Illiteracy is still high in many Asian countries. Gospel flip charts are a necessary tool for national missionaries to communicate the Gospel to those who can't read. Flip charts are like large color picture books that illustrate the Gospel. Each flip chart costs $10.
Light the way for a missionary walking at night through remote villages without electricity. You can provide the valuable gift of a simple kerosene lantern for only $25.
Child Hope Packet
The opportunity for a Dalit child to receive an education and the love of Jesus is the best gift imaginable. Your Child Hope Packet will make it possible for an "Untouchable" child to go to school. Your gift helps provide school uniforms, books, tutoring and help with homework, at least one nutritious meal each day and a yearly medical checkup. Children in the program will also hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Many times, entire families are changed through just one child. A $50 Hope Packet can change one child's life for all eternity.
National missionary teams draw a crowd when they enter a village and begin playing worship songs with their musical instruments. The two most common musical instruments used in Asian worship are drums and tambourines. You can provide a drum for a missionary for $22 and tambourines for only $5 each.
An entire national missionary team and all of its valuable equipment can travel to several far-flung villages a day with this wonderful gift. That could become several hundred villages a year! A heavy-duty jeep vehicle can be provided for $. Be sure and watch the talking jeep video! I have quite a story to tell.
Motorcycles can carry two national missionaries at a time! A motorcycle is an extremely useful and time-saving tool, especially in hilly areas where pedalling a bicycle is difficult. The cost of a motorcycle is $1,200.
LCD Projector Kit
Man of Mercy, an Indian-made film on the life of Jesus, is one of the most effective ways to share the Gospel with people in Asia. Tens of thousands have already given their lives to Christ as a result of watching this moving film. To share this amazing story with others, national missionaries all across the mission field are waiting for an LCD projector kit, which includes the film and all the equipment needed to show it. What a wonderful gift you can share for $1,750!
$45 for 15 Minutes; $180 for 1 Hour
Through GFA-supported radio programs, people in mountain villages, crowded slums or urban tea shops can receive a glimpse into God’s character—possibly for the first time. They can find hope, discipleship and answers to their questions. Airing broadcasts in more than 100 of Asia’s most common languages, GFA-supported radio ministry receives about 2 million pieces of correspondence each year from people who are asking for prayer or wanting to know more about Christ.
You can provide one 15-minute program for $45 or one hour of programming for $180. Your donation will send a message of hope through the airwaves.
Many GFA supported missionaries spend many arduous hours walking from one village to another. With a bicycle a national missionary can visit three to four times as many villages in a day. A heavy-duty Indian-made bicycle can be a wonderful blessing for $110.
$1 for 200 tracts
