How is GFA transforming communities?

Since 1979, we have been committed to serving the “least of these” in Asia and Africa, often in places where no one else is serving, so they can experience the love of God for the first time. GFA supports national workers serving as the hands and feet of Christ in four main ways. Sponsoring national missionaries to minister to people’s needs, sponsoring children, investing in community development and helping families in need of care or during disasters.

“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.” —Zechariah 4:6

1. Sponsoring National Missionaries

We connect you with a national worker (or multiple workers) in developing nations—these simple, humble servants of God minister to people’s deepest needs both physically and spiritually, in communities that are in need.

2. Sponsoring Children

More than 70,000 children from impoverished families are being given hope and a brighter future through GFA’s Child Sponsorship Program. This sponsorship program provides a way for children in Rwanda, Nepal and other parts of Asia to receive an education, medical checkups and more in Jesus’ name.

3. Developing Communities

Many families in the communities we serve do not have the basic necessities needed for healthy living. We meet these needs by providing things like clean water, income producing farm animals, sewing machines and vocational training.

4. Disaster Relief and Compassionate Care

GFA national missionaries serve victims of natural disasters and those who are often rejected by society, like widows and leprosy patients. Our Compassion Services teams love the Lord and serve the needy from that same heart.
