Why I No Longer Support Gospel For Asia!

This is an article that I never once thought I would write, but even though I hate doing it, I have no choice.

Just so you know: all of the people I have encountered at Gospel For Asia, including Brad, Clara, Elicia, Ron, Tony, Amanda, Cynthia, Corinna, Veronica, Steven, Natalya, Jessieka, and others, have been awesome servants of God. I have enjoyed working with them.

But sadly, K. P. Yohannan and the leaders who make the business decisions for Gospel For Asia — and we’re talking millions and millions of dollars — have not been as forthcoming and honest as they must be in their handling of large sums of money for Kingdom of God purposes.

What has caused me to change my mind about Gospel For Asia?

The info on these two links was just too much for me to overlook.

Now, does this mean that I no longer agree with the books written by K. P. Yohannan, including No Longer A Slumdog and Revolution in World Missions? No, not at all. These are two of the finest books that I have ever read and their teachings will impact me for the rest of my life. I also agree with many of Yohannan’s teachings.

Do I require churches and ministries to be perfect? Of course not, we all make mistakes. But I do insist on integrity, honesty, and transparency when it comes to handling money, especially millions and millions of dollars, otherwise we are no better than the world system.

So, forgive me, if I have misled any of you readers in the past.

  1. Mr. Larry, my heart goes out to you and to all those affected by these findings. I am also so thankful that there is good to be had in all of this, in the teachings and books and help given. God will sort this out.
    God bless you for being transparent and honest with us!

  2. Debbie,

    Now, that the initial sadness is wearing off, I’m waiting to discover the lessons I need to learn from this experience. Like you wrote: “God will sort this out.” God bless you and thanks for being such a great friend.

  3. That’s some big figures being thrown around in those links you attached…not good…

  4. markpeddar,

    GFA is probably the fasted growing ministry in the history of missions, but I’m sure fast growth and size brings with it extra problems. I pray that GFA comes through this shaking stronger than ever.
