Compassion Services

Compassion Services

Compassion Services meets the needs of people in dire situations. During the coronavirus pandemic, for example, GFA missionaries provided face masks, soap, groceries and cooked meals to thousands of people impacted by lockdowns.

When you give to Compassion Services you help enable us to serve people in many needed ways, such as ministering to those in slums and leprosy colonies and even bringing medical care to remote areas. Each area of ministry provides practical, relevant help during times of crisis, such as when poverty becomes life-threatening or after natural disasters. Through these ministries, GFA missionaries are revealing God’s compassion to people in desperate need.

“I lost my mother three years ago, and my father has health issues and he is unable to walk. We depend on begging for our survival. But due to lockdown, we are starving and sleeping [with] empty stomachs. I thank you for providing food [for] us every day.” —a 7-year-old girl, recipient of pandemic relief supplies


Disaster Relief Fund

Disaster Relief Fund

GFA-supported national workers serve victims of natural disasters, such as earthquakes, cyclones and floods. A devastating storm can wipe out homes, crops and livelihoods in an instant, leaving impoverished families with very little hope for the future. These relief teams love the Lord and serve the needy from that same heart. They immediately step in to assist victims of natural disasters by providing emergency relief like food, clothing, clean water and shelter. They provide counseling and pray for families grieving lost loved ones. Workers bring long-term solutions too, helping to rebuild homes, put children back in school, and provide income-generating tools to get families back on their feet again.


Chickens

Chickens

$11

Your gift towards chickens can help supplement a family’s income and often helps a family get on its feet financially. Hungry families can eat or sell the nutritious eggs, or they can hatch chicks to increase their flock and later have more eggs and chicks to sell.

“There is no one to take care of me at this old age. I am worried, thinking, ‘What will happen if I die and no one will even know about it?’ Today, I saw your care, and I am happy for the chicken you gave me.” —Prim, a 65-year-old widow


Goats

Goats

$140 for a pair

Your gift towards goats can rapidly improve a family’s financial situation. In the case of one father, one pair of goats multiplied and enabled him to start a goat farm, resulting in more than 75 goats to milk or sell. He built a house for his family and sent his children to school, offering them a better future than his parents were able to offer him when he was a child.

“I just love how animals can help sustain a family with food and income. What a blessing it is to serve in this way.” —Hope, a donor from Tennessee


Bicycle

Bicycle

$110

Bicycles help national missionaries save time, energy and transportation expenses, dramatically increasing their ability to minister. These sturdy bicycles enable national missionaries to respond quickly to people asking for prayer and to carry the news of Christ farther and faster.

“Sometimes I was not able to reach my destination traveling by bus, as the road was broken on the way. I had to return back. But with the bicycle, I am able to cross any such hurdles and reach my destination.”
—GFA national missionary


Water Buffalo

Water Buffalo

$460

Water buffalo are powerful animals often used to plow fields. They produce milk for drinking or selling, and their dung can be used as fuel for cooking. Your gift towards a water buffalo could greatly improve a family’s financial situation!

“My 8-year-old nephew Benjamin has been waiting for the last few weeks for your Christmas Gift Catalog to come in the mail. He asks me nearly every day if it has come yet. ... After writing his list and handing over the money, he said that his joy was ‘too much!’ ” —Cherilyn, a donor from Canada


Mosquito Net

Mosquito Net

$10

Malaria is transmitted through the bite of an infected mosquito. Mosquito nets save lives and offer a restful night’s sleep, free from the sting of disease-laden mosquitoes.

“We are five members in our home. We have one net, which is not enough for all of us, and also we sleep on the mud floor. The whole night I have to shoo off mosquitoes with clothes to save my little children from mosquito bites. But I am extremely happy to receive a mosquito net today.” —Kalani, a mother whose family is now protected from mosquitoes at night


Blanket

Blanket

$25

Most families in the impoverished areas in which GFA serves have little or no insulation or indoor heating. Those who sleep on the streets are even more exposed to the cold. Blankets provide comfort and protection and serve as tangible expressions of Christ’s love.

“This is one of my most favorite things to do this time of the year! I can hardly wait to get to heaven to hear the stories of how clean water saved lives or a pair of chickens sustained a family or how a blanket kept someone warm for the winter.” —Denise, a donor from Iowa


Where Most Needed

Where Most Needed

Through donations to Gospel for Asia's Where Most Needed fund, we are able to tell more people about the opportunities to transform communities through Christ's love in Asia. Help us to do our part in fulfilling the Great Commission.


Outdoor Toilet

Outdoor Toilet

$54 to $540

More than a billion people worldwide have no choice but to go to the bathroom out in the open, which poses many risks, especially for women and girls who venture into open fields under the cover of darkness. Private outdoor toilets spare families from disease found at communal waste grounds and protects the dignity of men and women.

“It is a commandment from the Bible to love the poor and the needy. So, whatever we do today, by helping the poor and the needy, we are actually fulfilling God’s commandment.” —Gerrard, a GFA pastor

You can provide a family with an outdoor toilet for only $540, or you can help share the cost with your gift of $54.


Pigs

Pigs

$65

These portly critters bring powerful financial breakthroughs to needy families. Piglets fetch a good price at market, which enables families to buy whatever they need, and adult pigs provide ample meat for selling or eating.

“As I was very poor before, I used to worry a lot. … But now, since I have [these piglets,] all the worries and everything has been taken away. … After getting these piglets, I really have seen the works of prayer and what faith can really do. My faith is growing day by day.” —Missael, a father of three who can now feed and clothe his family


Sewing Machine

Sewing Machine

$100

Sewing machines mend broken lives. Men and women who lack education are hindered in their ability to provide for their families, but with a sewing machine, they can earn a stable income by sewing clothes. The gift of a sewing machine can remove the hopelessness and poverty hanging over many families, and through this timely help, recipients can realize God’s care for them.

“I was really longing for a machine. ... I have no words to express my feelings and thanks to the church. ... This gift not only helps me to earn a daily income, but also it brought us close to the Living God.” —Raissa, a sewing machine recipient and sister in Christ


Winter Clothing Packet

Winter Clothing Packet

$40

Harsh winters force many people indoors, hindering villagers from finding jobs and limiting pastors’ ability to minister. Winter clothing packets help GFA missionaries stay healthy and able to minister during cold seasons, and they also demonstrate Christ’s love in very practical ways to villagers living in mountainous regions or to the homeless.

Depending on the region, a winter clothing packet may include:

  • Blanket
  • Jacket
  • Sweater
  • Other warm items

“These days, cold is increasing rapidly. I received warm clothes at the right time. … I am sure [the clothes] will keep my body warm. I am thankful … for the love that is shown to me.” —Sister Paisli, a national missionary


Church Building

Church Building

$80 to $10,000

Fledgling congregations often lack a permanent structure to use for worship services, which exposes them to a host of problems. Their meetings—and ministries—are also hindered simply because they do not have space to gather as a church family. Your gift helps us to build and repair buildings. Even a gift of $80 can help provide decades of safer worship; with others sharing the cost, a church can be built!

A place of worship:

  • Testifies to the local community of the Lord’s presence and the credibility and stability of the local congregation.
  • Protects believers from outside dangers during worship services.
  • Offers a safe, welcoming location for visitors from any background who want to learn about Jesus.
  • Serves as a center for relief distributions during times of crisis.
  • Frees believers to worship openly and exuberantly without worrying about disturbing their landlords or neighbors.
  • Shelters believers from heavy rain and intense summer heat.

A permanent place of worship varies in costs to construct, depending on size, location and available materials.

You could provide a church building for $10,000, or you could help share the cost with your gift of $80.

“Church is a place where I come to worship the Lord after a whole week of toil. Church is a very special place, and the new building has made it more special, and I am very happy.” —Sinjin, a believer whose congregation received a new building in place of its old, overcrowded one


Jesus Well

Jesus Well

$30 to $1,400

Jesus Wells provide fresh water year-round, protecting communities from waterborne illnesses and sparing women and children from spending hours fetching water. Obtaining clean water is also vital for practicing safe hygiene and for supporting healthy immune systems, both of which prevent the spread of diseases like COVID-19.

Pastors serving near Jesus Wells are able to share about the Living Water mentioned on the well’s plaque. Providing safe water—either by drilling a new well or maintaining existing wells—is a practical way to show communities how much God and His children care for all people!

“I believe that God will do a miracle, that through this Jesus Well many people will come and glorify His name.” —Jaevin, a GFA pastor whose community received a Jesus Well

$1,400 provides a well that produces clean water for an entire community, saving people from waterborne diseases for years. $30 can help a family of 6 people, $300 can help 10 families, and $1,400 can help an entire village.


Holy Scriptures

Holy Scriptures

$10

Many believers in areas we serve are first-generation believers who grew up knowing nothing of God’s ways, and they’re hungry for His Word. Your donation helps give people a copy of God’s Word, enabling them to grow in their knowledge of God and walk more closely with Him.


BioSand Water Filter

BioSand Water Filter

$30

Many people in the areas we serve do not have clean water and as a result battle waterborne illnesses—or even succumb to death. Made with simple materials, BioSand water filters remove 98 percent of biological impurities, providing safe water for drinking and cooking for a family and often for neighbors too! The clean water will improve health and hygiene and will give peace of mind—all of which are expressions of Christ’s care.

“Now, no more struggle! Having a BioSand water filter was beyond our imagination.” —Erina, mother of three from Asia


Sponsor a Child for One Year

$420

Far too many children in the areas we serve struggle in abject poverty. Without things like proper nutrition, clean water and education, they have no hope of breaking free of cyclical poverty and attaining a better future.

GFA World’s Child Sponsorship Program offers hope through long-term community development programs that empower children and their communities to improve their lives in lasting, transformational ways. We’ve found the most effective way to help a child is to strengthen the child’s entire community, and the work we do is tailored to the specific needs within a child’s respective community. This may mean improving access to resources like clean water, better nutrition, basic healthcare, education and economic opportunities.

By linking your life with an impoverished child through GFA World’s Child Sponsorship Program, you can help give them a future filled with possibilities and hope.


Women's Literacy Fund

Women's Literacy Fund

$25

When women learn to read, they can avoid harmful labor contracts, understand warning labels and avoid being cheated at the marketplace. GFA World supports literacy classes that teach women how to read and write. After they graduate from these literacy classes, they're are also able to read God’s Word and can grow in their relationship with Him. Your gift towards literacy can help enable women to protect themselves and keep their families healthy while also equipping them to draw closer to God.


Gospel Tracts

Gospel Tracts

$1 for 200 tracts

For many people in remote areas, a piece of Gospel literature is the first step in their journey of knowing Jesus. Oftentimes, Gospel literature will be read aloud to others who are illiterate or passed on to someone else who will read it and pass it on to yet another person.


Lambs

Lambs

$65

A sheep’s rich milk is an excellent source of calcium—an essential nutrient for young children—and makes delicious cheese. Income from selling milk or lambs can provide education, food, medical care or a multitude of other valuable needs for families. And healthier, stronger families mean healthier, stronger communities!


Barnyard Bundle

Barnyard Bundle

$678

This is a noisy bunch of critters! The Barnyard Bundle includes three pairs of chickens, a pair of goats, a pair of pigs, one lamb and one cow, which are distributed among several families. Above the commotion of clucking, bleating and mooing animals, recipients give a hearty “thank you” for demonstrating God’s love.

Bundle Includes:

  • 6 Chickens: $33
  • 2 Goats: $140
  • 2 Pigs: $65
  • 1 Lamb: $65
  • 1 Cow: $375


Cows

Cows

$375

Cows and the milk they produce help families grow stronger, healthier and more financially secure. A cow’s milk can be consumed, adding much-needed nutrients to the family’s diet, or sold, adding to the family’s income. The cow’s manure serves as a rich fertilizer for farmers, resulting in a more profitable harvest. As cows multiply, so does the financial benefit and the family’s hope for the future.

“After having received the gift, we are really blessed. We have some income in our family. We have hope; we have a purpose in life and really are so blessed and so happy, just unlike what we thought our future would be.” —Janella, a mother whose adult son received a cow


Widows and Abandoned Children

Widows and Abandoned Children

$75

In many areas we serve, widows are an invisible part of society. They are commonly ignored, rejected and believed to be the cause of their husbands’ deaths, even cursed in some regions. Their own upbringing often leads them to believe those same things about themselves. Even women who have been abandoned by their husbands face the same sudden crisis as that of widows.

Also, millions of children must fend for themselves either as orphans, runaways or sons and daughters abandoned by their parents. Alone and unprotected, widows and abandoned children face immense practical and emotional hardships. But the Body of Christ can offer support and hope. When you give to help Widows and Abandoned Children, you can provide things like food, shelter, income-generating gifts, dignity and God’s compassion to women and children in need.

“And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ ” —Matthew 25:40
