Good News Nation
Creating a Facebook invite to host an online pastor’s meeting is the simple avenue that the Lord used to connect Brad Crawford with the nation of India, and Good News Nation was born. From hosting monthly pastors conferences and drilling wells to seeing hundreds saved, healed and baptized, North India is the launching pad for this global ministry with a vision to establish the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the nations of the earth. The Yaple family has come alongside the Crawfords in this endeavor by ministering to the women of North India, and in the Summer of 2021, hosted the first Christian women’s conference ever to be recorded in this region. Good News Nation is currently discipling and supporting thirty Indian pastors and in the summer of 2022, through the generous support of The Gathering, is set to open its first church building in Rajasthan, India.
Support for the Jewish community is commanded in God’s Word. It is our pleasure to provide monthly support for this ministry that are are working with the Jewish people.
