There are women all across Asia who have discovered the amazing, transforming love of Jesus Christ and have His fire burning within their hearts. Eager to share this discovery with others, God has led them to devote their lives as missionaries, ministering to and serving the women around them.
Before knowing Jesus, these women experienced the same shame, fear, abuse, rejection and heartache their neighboring women live with. Because these missionaries are women and live in a culture where it's difficult to freely interact with men, they—unlike their male counterparts—can approach women in their homes and freely share about Jesus' love with no fear of misinterpretations.
They can approach women in their homes and freely share about Jesus' love with no fear of misinterpretations.
These women missionaries can develop friendships and counsel women, offering comfort and much-needed hope that is only found in Christ.
Uplifting the lives of women is one of the most significant things that can come about to transform families and communities.
In a part of the world where women are often abused simply for being female, Ruth's father displayed an exceptional hatred toward her. When Ruth finally asked him why, he shouted, "You should have been a boy!" Afterward, he stopped speaking to her altogether.
It wasn't until a GFA (SA)-supported women's team came to her village that Ruth found out Someone loved her. The news radically changed her life—and the life of every woman she is now able to tell as a GFA-supported woman missionary.
Each GFA (SA)-supported woman missionary already lives in Asia. In preparation for ministry, she has gone through Bible college.
These advantages make her ideal to minister to women in Asia:
