Today, I fasted and prayed for Gospel For Asia. This Texas-based ministry and its founder, K. P. Yohannan, have blessed millions of us Americans since its beginnings almost forty years ago.
But what is a ministry? It’s people helping other people.
There are approximately 70 – 80 people who are full-time staff members, who along with interns and students attending GFA Discipleship training schools, handle the bulk of the work at GFA’s office in Wills Point, Texas. These people are unpaid and have raised their own support so that they can help serve the thousands of native missionaries and female ministry missionaries, 74,000 Bridge of Hope children, 614 Bridge of Hope Centers, and thousands of other things that GFA sponsors.
As I wrote in my post yesterday, I do not agree with how leadership is handling the money at Gospel For Asia, but my heart is broken for the staff people and students who need to be encouraged right now.
Today I prayed:
Lord, You said Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light. So, Lord, encourage each worker at Gospel For Asia by reminding them that Your grace is sufficient and Your power is made perfect in their weakness. (Based on Matthew 11:30 and 2 Corinthians 12:9.
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you?
Join with me on Thursdays to fast and pray for America.
