    Just wanted to be clear.. 🙂

    When Yohannan went rogue, I was so upset. His organization was fairly legitimate in the beginning. I used to support raise as a missionary, and a person like Yohannan makes us all look bad.

  6. Michael says:


    I don’t know when it was legit…I was raising red flags at the turn of the century…no one believed me then…

    We were serving in the slums of Manila, when KP was speaking in the CC churches. After 5 years we came home for our first 1 year furlough and he had spoken at our church. We had people questioning the validity of our ministry because KP had preached that American missionaries were not needed, but the money should go to his ministry. We lived not knowing from month to month how much we would have, we never once sent out letters or emails soliciting money and yet the Lord always met our needs. (34 years of overseas missions and God is faithful!) Thankfully, our CC pastor (who had invited KP to speak to his congregation) continued to support us and encourage our sending church to support our ministry to the urban poor in Manila with feeding centers, pre schools, medical outreaches, and church planting. I had forgotten about KP, until today.

  8. Linn says:

    He must have been giving off a different vibe then. People were very supportive, especially that you could support a missionary on just a few dollars a day. I had to justify every penny of the $800 I raised back in the late 80s.

    $20 for a goat in a remote Indian village? Yeah, more like $20 for chemicals for his swimming pool at his large Texas compound. What ever happened to honesty???

    I think his funeral/memorial will present a difficult quandary for folks who loved him in earlier days. The ministry did much good in spite of the latter day lies and misdeeds.

  11. Terry says:

    Michael and Linn – I met K.P. and his wife in 1983, when he was just starting Gospel For Asia. Training and supporting indigent pastors instead of sending American missionaries was revolutionary at the time. Seemed as legit as could be.

  12. Michael (not the blog owner) says:

    I once asked kp when his organization would send missionaries in the truest sense of the d, crossing a culture and a language … they were mostly supporting church planters amongst the same language and culture

    I was told I was disrespectful

  13. Michael says:


    Glad to see you among us again…it’s been a very long time.

    For those who don’t know, Andrew has been a life long missionary and one of the first important Christian bloggers…

    Oh yeah! The Kiwi dude. I remember him.

    In regards to KP’s recent demise, all I can say is this:

    “You reap what you sow.”
    “Karma is a b***h.”
    “What goes around comes around.”

    I suppose the the question is will his closest lieutenants in his criminal enterprise evenly divide the spoils and empire, or will they duke it out like Alexander’s Generals after his death so THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE (HT: Highlander).

  16. George says:

    He did a lot to help the common man. Let us all realize the truth No good deed goes unpunished. Even Christ our Lord was crucified. Do not go to serve unless you are willing to be murdered. Always remember Graham Staines. Now paid assassinations will occur. We are in the last days.

  17. R'as al Ghul says:


    KP lined his own pockets under the pretext of helping the common man and using a facade of religion and piety. You really think KP was murdered? If people really wanted him dead, his demise would have been arranged and executed many years beforehand. If he was murdered, it is more likely that one his lieutenants arranged it to become the new Capo of the crime family.

    I’ve been involved with GFA for over 25 years now and I’ve never seen a mission bear fruit the way they have. KP, while perhaps a bit odd to those who don’t know him, was a genuine and faithful follower of Christ. If each of us did only a fraction of the work that he has done we would reach the world for Christ in short order. Shame on you for the baseless and graceless things you’ve commented here.

  19. Kevin H says:


    The things said here have been far from baseless. Warren Throckmorton and others have documented the many abuses, financial wrongdoings, and other corruption of Yohannan and GFA.


    KP Yohannan was far more than a bit “odd”, he was indeed a cultic leader and fraud master.

    I used to give to GFA myself for many years before learning of the mass corruption of Yohannan and GFA. I personally talked to a top GFA leader when this was first coming to light and he lied to me about multiple things that were later documented. I personally know one of the former employees of GFA who was abused.

    If we only did a a “fraction of the work” that Yohannan did, this would not result in “reaching the world for Christ in short order”, but rather in even more corruption and abuse being committed in the name of Christ. Thank God many of us are not in the business of doing that work.

    Since you popped up on here suddenly, I have to wonder if you are one of KP’s paid minions/PR people/paid social media influence peddlers here doing damage control and deflection. Even though KP is dead, the show must go on, if only to keep the money flowing in. Of course, even though he is dead, I am sure your paycheck from his empire will still arrive as scheduled.
