Help us transform communities around the world through God’s love.

We believe in sustainably supporting those in need: by raising up national missionaries in eighteen countries to reach people that need to experience love from both God and their communities. We want to lift up the broken, serve the weary, and give hope to a diverse world.

Who We Are

Our mission in life is to be devout followers of Christ and to live lives fully pleasing to Him. Therefore, since 1979, we have been committed to serving the “least of these” in Asia and Africa, often in places where no one else is serving, so they can experience the love of God for the first time.

What does this mean for us? We have an extraordinary challenge in front of us to collaborate with indigenous missionaries around the world and make an impact now and for generations to come.

Since our worldwide inception in 1979…


national missionaries sent out


countries loved and served

Medical Ministry

Too poor to afford things like vitamins, fruits and vegetables—or routine doctor visits—families in poverty are left vulnerable against simple diseases, which can eventually threaten lives.

“These words you put on paper were obviously inspired from our Father. This book brought tears and ‘God bumps’ to me throughout my reading. Between you, Francis Chan and David Platt, I am so convicted to do more in the name of Christ!”

Mrs. R.H., Ohio, USA

“After reading No Longer a Slumdog, my heart longed to help as many children as I could. Thank you GFA for finding these children who are precious beyond words and for giving them schooling and so much more!”

Mr D, Australia

K.P. Yohannan’s book draws the Church back to the very heart of what Christ has called us to do. I would urge every Christian, and especially every pastor, to read this book with a humble
heart before the Lord. I’m reading it through again, and it’s still a heart-stirring blessing.

A Slum Child’s Return

The faintest hints of the sun’s rays begin to streak across the sky and bounce off the plastic-tarp rooftops as one man makes his way along the narrow alleyways of the slum. Some people recognize him and smile; others take little notice. Many have known him since childhood. The man steps around dirty puddles and piles of garbage; he ducks under low-hanging wash lines, strung between houses and laden with wet clothes. Every morning, Pastor Martin walks this route with purpose and prayer.
