With over 40 years of experience, GFA is equipped to meet the expanding needs of Africa. We’ll soon start training national missionaries, clean water projects, medical ministry, education for the underprivileged, women’s empowerment, and community development projects. Our aim is to help empower the poor to break the cycle of poverty and show God’s love.
And Rwanda is just the beginning of an exciting new missions frontier. We plan to expand ministry to six other nations in Africa during the next few years.
“We aim to be servants to everyone, showing them Christ through our lifestyle,” said our founder KP Yohannan. “Jesus told his disciples to change the world — and as we expand into Africa that’s our calling, too.”
