WILLS POINT, TX – KP Yohannan, founder of Gospel for Asia (GFA World), whose heart to love and help the poor has inspired numerous charities like Gospel for Asia Canada, and Metropolitan of Believers Eastern Church, to serve the deprived and downcast worldwide — shares an encouraging message this Christmas, amid a historically challenging year, the reassuring truth that God is in control.
I pray you and your family have a joy filled Christmas and may the blessings of the Holy Trinity be with you for the New Year!
Chronicles of Narnia, the great Aslan tells the children that Narnia is really only a “shadow land.” As we look back at all the events from the year 2020, we can see so vividly that nothing here in this world, not even the mightiest nation or person on earth, is permanent. It is all nothing more than a passing shadow.
2,000 years ago, when the world ruling empires of Rome and Persia were on the brink of fading away, the One who is the Eternal King, the Creator and ruler over all, decided to be born as a man to redeem His creation.
As followers of this True King who gave up everything so that we could be redeemed and brought back into fellowship with our Creator, we also must do all we can to never forget the untold millions who are still waiting to hear the first Christmas story.
Maybe you’re asking yourself, “What is waiting for me in 2021?” No matter what it might be, you can be sure the same loving King is holding your tomorrow and underneath you are the everlasting arms! His loving, merciful hand will guide us.
May this Christmas be a time we are reassured of His unchanging promise: He is our Immanuel—God with us.
KP Yohannan, founder and director GFA World (Gospel for Asia) and Metropolitan of Believers Eastern Church (BEC), has written more than 250 books, including Revolution in World Missions, an international bestseller with more than 4 million copies in print. He and his wife, Gisela, have two grown children, Daniel and Sarah, who both serve the Lord with their families.
Gospel for Asia is a Christian-based charity serving the “least of these” in Asia since its beginning in 1979, often in places where no one else is serving. GFA World workers serve as the hands and feet of Christ by ministering to people’s needs so they can understand the love of God for them for the first time. GFA World is engaged in dozens of projects, such as caring for poor children, slum dwellers and widows and orphans; providing clean water by funding wells; supporting medical missions; and meeting the needs of those in leprosy colonies. Through GFA World’s Bridge of Hope Program, tens of thousands of children are being rescued from the generational curses of poverty and hopelessness.
