 Gospel for Asia Reaches Settlement Ending 3-Year Legal Nightmare

One of the world’s largest international ministries is thanking God as a more than three-year legal battle against allegations of financial fraud is finally coming to an end.
Several years ago, Gospel for Asia found itself embroiled in a class-action lawsuit accusing the non-profit of betraying its mission to help the world’s poor and needy. The lawsuit claims GFA covertly diverted donations in order to build a “reprehensible … multimillion-dollar personal empire.”

The plaintiffs, Dr. Garland Murphy III and his wife Phyllis, accused Gospel of Asia founder K.P. Yohannan of “using a Christian organization as a front to attract and exploit the goodwill and generosity of devout Christians,” noting that as little as 13 percent of the donated money actually made it to the field.

GFA, which has been adamant about its innocence, feared the class-action suit would mean the end of the ministry. However, on Thursday, the non-profit announced a settlement had been reached and that it would be able to “continue to serve those in need.”

“For three long years, our ministry wondered more often than I’d like to admit if we would survive this ordeal,” said Yohannan. “We are so incredibly thankful for the prayers and the ongoing support of our many faithful friends and partners. We look today toward the future with optimism in our hearts ‘being confident of this one thing: that He who began a good work in (us) will continue to perfect it.'”

“I’m most proud of the fact that we managed to continue to serve those in need even as we fought every day to survive ourselves,” he added.
