In the autumn of 1982, GFA was invited to represent the national missionary movement at the Keith Green Memorial Concert tour throughout the U.S. and Canada. The concerts were a call to missions, honoring the burning passion of musician Keith Green, who had passed away in a plane crash earlier that year. As the group toured North America, GFA staff member Fred set up booths and gave out special editions of the SEND! magazine. In an article written by Fred for SEND! in 1984, he shared, “We praise God for the tremendous blessing we received, especially during our tour through these 17 cities of Canada with the Last Days brethren. … As a result of sending information to those who requested it, so far we have received 35 new sponsors.”
This was the very beginnings of GFA’s ministry in Canada. In 1984, GFA officially opened an administrative office in Canada. As the word about national missions spread throughout the globe, the Lord provided individuals to lead the work in the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, South Korea and Finland. We praise the Lord for the GFA family around the world and pray many more will join us!
