One year ago today, I was accepted on staff at Gospel for Asia. Praise God; He is so faithful. This year has gone by so quickly, but has been so full of growth, challenges, tears, laughter and joy. I am grateful for Jesus’ love and the new life He gave me… And the privilege to serve at GFA and share the gift of Christ’s love with people who have never yet heard. The best is yet to come!
35 years ago today, Gospel for Asia was founded by Uncle K.P. Yohannan. My family and I have been part of this ministry (this family!) for 12 1/2 years. It’s such a privilege to be in a community of people who love the Lord, who build up one another, and who are passionate about telling people in Asia about the salvation found only in Jesus. I have personally grown so much by growing up here, and by spending these years in the School of Discipleship. I am so thankful for my classmates, co-workers, teachers, and leaders who invest in my life. And God is continuing to work in our lives, and in the lives of thousands on the other side of the world. The best is yet to come!
1 Thessalonians 5:24 (one of my favorite verses) says, “He who calls you is faithful; He will surely do it.”
Praise the Lord for His faithfulness!

And, I’ve started a summer job, being a swim instructor at the city pool. It’s been fun so far, and I’m quite tan (and somewhat sunburned) after four days of being out all morning. Also, Clara and I now have a cell phone that we’re sharing. It’s rather exciting and fun.
