“My wife and I started supporting GFA … in 1981. We started with one national missionary. For us, that $30 (USD) was a big step of faith.”
That step of faith belonged to Charlie, a donor since the ministry’s infancyOne day, while driving home from work and listening to a radio program, Charlie heard guest speaker K.P. Yohannan share about the new ministry of GFA. As Yohannan shared a vision of impacting lives with the love of God through national workers, Charlie knew this was exactly what he had been looking for. He pulled over into a parking lot and waited to hear the address.
“That night, I wrote a letter to GFA and mailed it the next day,” Charlie says.
Supporting the work of GFA for close to 40 years, Charlie has watched the ministry grow from its foundation of supporting missionaries to digging Jesus Wells, sending out mobile teams and establishing Bridge of Hope. With each expansion of the ministry, Charlie could see God’s message of love traveling faster and faster.
“When I first heard of the [mobile] teams showing the Jesus Film,” Charlie shares, “my heart jumped with joy!”
