Andy, GFA staff member and current director of communications at GFA’s international office in New Zealand, shares about how God uses the weak and foolish to change lives.
Serving with GFA has been one of the greatest blessings of my life!
When we step back and see the Lord’s hand upon GFA, there isn’t really much we can do except boast in the Lord. God calls the weak and foolish (1 Corinthians 1:27).
