Gospel for Asia (GFA), WILLS POINT, Texas – We understand that it is reasonable for people to infer from our name, Gospel for Asia, that our only area of service is in Asian countries and that our only service is to share the Gospel. While that assumption is reasonable, it is not entirely accurate.
It is more accurate to say GFA seeks opportunities to serve wherever we have the means to do so. Our motivation is the Gospel – the good news of God’s love for the entire world. According to Jesus, he came “not to be served, but to serve others.” We seek opportunities to serve to follow his example of service motivated by love. That includes serving our fellow man in the Dallas area and in Wills Point.
One of our local projects is maintaining the cleanliness of a two-mile stretch of local road as part of the Texas Adopt-a-Highway program. Our voluntary service includes a two-year commitment to pick up litter along our adopted stretch four times per year.
GFA vice-president Danny Punnose said, “We wanted to contribute to the local community and show people practically that we genuinely care about Wills Point.”
In December, GFA staff, their families, and students at our School of Discipleship joined others at Samaritan’s Purse’s Dallas distribution center. Our entourage served Operation Christmas Child by sorting and sealing gift-laden shoeboxes by age and gender, packing the boxes in cartons, then loading the cartons onto pallets for shipment to children in developing nations around the globe.
If we are Christ’s then our lives, too, should be marked by service. That is why GFA looks are the world seeking the opportunities to serve.
Founded over thirty years ago, Gospel for Asia has brought humanitarian assistance and spiritual help to millions of people in more than 14 nations across Asia. Via their radio ministry, they have also spread the Good News in 110 languages.
