This short excerpt from my recent October Newsletter gives you a small glimpse of how GFA staff or students and their support team are linked to the mission field in South Asia.
I serve full-time in Gospel for Asia‘s Web Department, in addition to taking School of Discipleship classes. I don’t always explain much of what I do or how it’s linked with reaching Asia, so I want to take some time and do that.
Right now the main things I work on are: GFA Canada social media (writing and posting several times a day) and Blog for Asia (a program for bloggers to use their voices to make a difference in Asia). I am also learning some web design, getting my toes wet with Google Adwords (advertising with Google), and helping make Veil of Tears follow up calls.
That gives you a small picture of my role in Web. By serving behind the scenes at Gospel for Asia, my life is linked with over 16,000 national missionaries serving in more than 10 Asian nations. I found this awesome explanation in the SD support brochure:
“Working in the ministry as a GFA School of Discipleship student, I represent more than 200 of these missionaries. My role behind the scenes is absolutely essential in helping win the battle for souls on the field. Think of it this way: The soldier who fights on the front lines has a team of people backing him up, keeping the supply lines open and enabling him to remain focused on the battle. Both the soldier and the team are equally important to the outcome of the war; one cannot survive without the other.”
To all those partnering with me, you are part of that team! Thank you.
