ANNUAL & ONE-TIME NEEDS FOR A 5-YEAR VISION

To date, GFI has trained and sent out 502 native missionaries and, in various parts of India, planted about 200 churches plus over 700 home groups, which are the first stage of establishing a new church. GFI also has several humanitarian works, such as orphanages/children’s homes in Kerala and Orissa and ministries to leprosy victims and vocational training centers for poor and needy women, training them to sew so they can provide for their families and help their communities.

5-year vision would mean 500 more missionaries trained, at least 500 more churches established, and 10,000 villages reached.

For that, we estimate the following needs in an annual basis and one time basis.  Please remember us in your daily prayers so that the God Almighty open wonderful doors to meet with this huge target. Also, if you are inspired by God, please do help with whatever financial ways you can.
