WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA) – Discussing the power of prayer in the lives of those who serve in the Mission Support Team, the crucial link that connects the mission field to the western church, first and foremost through their prayers.
Technically, I’m both a pastor’s kid and missionary’s kid. My father, an ordained pastor, and my mother have been working as behind-the-scenes missionaries at GFA for decades. Ministry has been an integral part of my life since childhood.
Over the years, I have had a front-row seat to countless stories of ministry. It’s a unique position, especially among my generation. Almost every aspect of my life revolved around GFA growing up. Weekly prayer gatherings and church meetings—I was there. I even sometimes joined my parents at conferences to represent the ministry.
The fact that I can call myself a “missionary’s kid” despite having never left the country is certainly somewhat unconventional. But still, my parents are missionaries, plain and simple. Though they may live and work here in the States, they enable those laboring on the field to change lives for eternity.
As I grew older, I realized more what kind of environment I had grown up in. It was one of personal growth, encouragement and above all—prayer. Prayer is what this ministry is founded on, and it is something my parents and all the staff members take very seriously.
