In 1981, GFA sent out a special mailing with the help of pastor and radio broadcaster Lester Roloff, who had invited Dr. K.P. Yohannan to speak on his radio program, Family Altar. During that broadcast, Roloff announced he was going to sponsor six national missionaries and encouraged others to do the same. People from all over the U.S. responded to this message and became national missionary supporters. Weeks later, Yohannan asked to use his mailing list, which Roloff surprisingly agreed to. After a few tests of faith, which you can read about in Revolution in World Missions, GFA sent out the mass mailing.
“That mailing incident proved to be another turning point in the history of GFA,” Yohannan writes. “We received many new sponsors—a double increase in the number of [national workers] we were able to help.”
Charlie is one of those supporters who heardYohannan on Roloff’s radio program in 1981. He and many others from that time still support God’s work in Asia through GFA, and we praise the Lord for their steadfast friendship!
