Gospel for Asia Pastor Plans Grocery Distribution

GFA pastor Bhaskar hung up the phone after talking to yet another one of the 270 people who regularly attended his church. Coordinating a distribution program during the COVID-19 pandemic took an even greater amount of planning and care than usual, due to the precautions needed.

Pastor Bhaskar and his congregation helped 25 families by providing groceries.
