Vocational Training

Vocational Training

Suggested donation: $120

In places like Sri Lanka and South India, where the 2004 tsunami displaced so many lives, and in teeming cities like Delhi and Mumbai, the ability to make a decent living often involves vocational training that is beyond the reach of the poor.

"Sewing" Seeds for Eternity with the Gift of a Sewing Machine

Many families work as laborers; sometimes having to sell their children just to earn enough money to support their family. By providing a sewing machine to those in need, they now have a chance to start their own tailoring business. Once the sewing machine is given, classes are provided so people can start putting their new machines to good use.

Give a Family Hope for the Future

With the funds provided by making and repairing clothes in their community, people who formerly had no hope can now send their children to school and provide for their family. Please provide a practical gift in Jesus’ name to those who need it most.

If you would like to do more, consider gathering your friends and family to raise money for sewing machines. Visit myGFA.org to find out more.

Church Building

Church Building

  • Protects believers from intense summer heat and rain.
  • Offers a safe haven for those experiencing opposition.
  • Encourages a sense of permanency, credibility and stability for the congregation among the local community.
  • Becomes a hub for ministry activities.

When you donate toward church buildings, you are investing in a place that will be filled with praise, prayer and discipleship, displaying the beauty and wonder of God.
