“If you’re going to serve the Lord,” Betty said, “there’s only one way to do it: with all you’ve got.”
Betty Fields was a force to be reckoned with, unrivaled in her childlike faith in Jesus, her stewardship over God’s creation and her strong work ethic. She lived her life with an all-or-nothing attitude, unafraid and unabashed—and she did it for Jesus.
Broken Heart for Asia
Every visitor who walked through the lobby doors of GFA World’s administration building in Texas saw Betty’s smiling face and heard a cheerful greeting, welcoming them to the ministry she had dedicated her life to. She faithfully manned GFA’s reception area for 20 years.
Gospel for Asia (GFA) was more than a workplace to Betty. It was the means to see generations come to know Christ’s love. Before joining Gospel for Asia (GFA), Betty had seen firsthand the struggles of those living in poverty—and without Jesus—when she visited Asia on a mission trip.
“If I think about all the things that I saw and the need,” she said, “it would break my heart again all over.”
Betty knew she had to help those precious people come to know the love of her Savior, so she joined Gospel for Asia (GFA) staff. She was 55 at the time.
Betty never lost excitement for the ministry.
“It’s a thrill for me just to come here every day and be a part of it,” she said 20 years later.
