NEWS from the MISSION FIELD GFA Workers Love the Hurting on World Leprosy Day SOUTH ASIA – On January 25, Gospel for Asia workers observed World Leprosy Day by hosting events to share the message of hope in Jesus to one of Asia’s most downtrodden and forgotten groups: victims of leprosy. At each event, GFA-supported congregations blessed leprosy patients with needed items like food, blankets, warm winter clothing and other life-sustaining gifts from Gospel for Asia’s Christmas Gift Catalog. During one program, GFA pastor Micah encouraged those affected with the debilitating skin disease by sharing the Good News of Jesus’ love. “Never think that you are alone in the world,” he said. “God loves you, and we are here to show you His love.” They then passed out more than 70 pounds of food items—consisting of rice, flour, daal, oil and salt—to each family present at the event. At another program, around 95 people living with leprosy received bed sheets, pillows and fruit packets. “We are so excited to receive your gifts and especially your love and kindness toward us,” said one recipient. “We sincerely thank GFA for visiting us and distributing precious gifts.” Offered with the love of Christ and kind words, a useful gift often makes a deep, long-lasting impact on the hearts of those with leprosy, who commonly face ostracism and rejection from society. This year, World Leprosy Day events brought joy to the lives of hundreds of people. As GFA workers share Jesus’ compassion through these outreaches, people suffering from leprosy are finding acceptance and hope in Him.
