I first heard of Gospel for Asia (GFA) from an ad I saw while surfing the net. It was for a free book by some guy named K.P. Yohannan and the title of the book was, Revolution in World Missions. I filled out the online form and the book was on its way. After receiving the book and almost reading it in one day I was moved beyond myself and encouraged with words of man who would be gripped by God to change the world with the Gospel message. From there I went on to read every book by K.P., learning and being moved by missions and the advancement of the Word to the least reached people on this planet. I was further gripped when I read, No Longer a Slum Dog, a newer book put out by brother K.P. It tells the story of those living in the slums of India, untouchable to the rest of their nation, yet chosen and dear to the heart of God.

Reaching the Most Unreached
Our Primary Aim is Sharing the Good News!
Gospel for Asia’s mission is to share the Good News of Jesus with those who have never heard his name. We train and send national missionaries to reach out into areas where the Good News of Jesus Christ has not yet been heard.
For over 30 years Gospel for Asia continues to bring aid and hope to some of the most downtrodden people in the Eastern Hemisphere.
How is Reaching the Most Unreached Accomplished?
- Through National (or Indigenous) Missionaries:
Gospel for Asia trains and sends national missionaries because they have proven extremely effective. They are already familiar with the language and culture, and they live at the level of the people they serve, thus removing many social barriers.
- Through Prayer:
The foundation of Gospel for Asia’s ministry is prayer. We know that nothing is accomplished without prayer, and therefore we give it a place of priority. Gospel for Asia missionaries and staff, literally around the world, pray consistently and with great fervor for those who have never heard that Jesus loves them.
- Through Donors, Sponsors and Staff:
Giving takes many forms at Gospel for Asia. Some give out of financial abundance; others, as in the story of the widow’s mite, give out of great need. Some give up secular careers to serve as staff at a GFA office. And, of course, the missionaries on the field sacrifice their entire lives to His service. No matter what our role is—whether missionary sponsor, volunteer, support staff or field missionary—we have all given ourselves over to the call of Christ that we might be used for His glory.
- By Faith:
Gospel for Asia sends 100 percent of the money you donate for work on the mission field to the field. Nothing is taken out for administrative expenses.
- Working With Others:
Gospel for Asia International works with and assists dozens of NGOs and ministries in many Asian nations. None of these entities comes under Gospel for Asia International or are legally affiliated with us.
Where are the Most Unreached?
Today the reality is that 97 percent of the world’s unreached lives in the 10/40 Window, a rectangular shaped area on our globe extending from West Africa to East Asia, from 10 degrees north to 40 degrees north of the equator. In this part of the world, millions live with little or no chance of ever hearing the Gospel. The Window also encompasses the majority of the world’s Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists.
The Neglected Window: the 10/40 Window
97 percent of the world’s unreached
Although 97 percent of the world’s unreached lives in the 10/40 Window … Less than 0.05% of our total resources as the Church in the West are being sent to help share the Good News.
Truly there is a staggering amount of work to do.
Within the 10/40 Window:
- The darkest of all areas within the 10/40 Window is Asia.
- Over 80,000 die every day in Asian countries without knowing about the love of Jesus Christ.
- 500,000 villages in India alone have never heard the Gospel.
Why are we reaching the most unreached ?
- Jesus commanded us to reach them
- We are called:
There are many serving Jesus across the world, and Gospel for Asia is privileged to be serving Him in Asia.
- The need is great:
Even as millions live in total spiritual darkness, the Church in the West spends less than 1 percent of its total resources on sharing the Good News with the most unreached.
My prayer for you in regards to this ministry is that you would seek to partner with them in bringing the Gospel to the most unreached Peoples of the world. Visit them at www.GFA.org to find out more info.
