2017: A Year in Review

In 2017, GFA-supported workers in 18 Asian nations worked together with the Body of Christ all over the world—including you—to see lives and communities blessed by the love of Christ.

These statistics serve as an aerial view of what God accomplished in one year throughout communities in Asia. He has done so much through His servants, who are faithfully ministering to the poor, desperate and needy around them.

Let's praise God for giving us the opportunity to join Him in His work!

We at GFA are deeply grateful for your love, prayers and sacrificial giving so others may have new life in Christ. God bless you, our brothers and sisters in the Lord.
