Message from Vanessa and Briggs

We are at it again!!!!! Briggs and I are gearing up for another triathlon. We had so much fun last year training together and talking about the life changing work of Gospel for Asia. Briggs and I were overwhelmed at the support of friends and family last year and felt honored to be a part of God's work in Asia.

Because we know that our God is Big and Awesome and there is nothing He can not do, we are doubling our goal and hoping to raise $2000.00!!!! GFA has many areas of support for the people of Asia. Briggs and I feel led to give this year's donations to purchasing bicycles for the local missionaries. This will give them reliable and more efficient transportation, which will allow for more opportunities to share the gospel with remote villages.

Already, Briggs has set his mind on doing his very best! He is on swim team and practicing to improve his time swimming 50M. Cycling comes more naturally to him but that has not slowed him down on learning to use his gears in hopes of flying through that portion of the race. Running is his biggest challenge, but with perseverance he is getting better. He will swim 50M, bike 2K and run 1K.
I too am training hard. In contrast to my sweet son the bicycle is the most challenging leg of the race, but I am trying to learn how to improve. I will swim 400M, bike 19K and run 5K.

Join us in this challenge!!!! You do not have to swim, bike or run we will happily do that for you. All you have to do is prayerfully consider donating to Gospel For Asia. Any amount is a blessing, truly. YOU will be making a difference in lives on the other side of the world. Get involved and be blessed as you see God work!!!!!!!!

With love and gratitude,
Vanessa and Briggs

About Bicycles

Help Missionaries Go Farther, Faster

Many Gospel for Asia-supported missionaries spend arduous hours walking from one village to another. With a bicycle, a missionary can visit two to three times as many communities in a day. A heavy-duty Asian-made bicycle is a wonderful blessing and only costs $110 each.

Bicycles are also given through the gift distribution program to help impoverished people earn a better living or get to work or school from far distances. Through the gifts, recipients experience Christ’s love.

About Gospel for Asia

TRANSFORMING COMMUNITIES IN ASIA

Since 1979, GFA has existed to fulfill one passion: seeing communities in Asia discover the same joy, hope and lasting peace we’ve found in Christ.

We serve to equip missionaries to minister throughout Asia. The projects funded through myGFA each play a significant part in helping missionaries serve more effectively and in transforming communities with the love of Christ.
