Gospel for Asia offers a free book through their website. I got it and found it very interesting.
The book tells about the history and the current work of Gospel for Asia. It explains how they: train local people to become missionaries, support a missionary for only $1400 a year, are currently supporting 16,000 missionaries, and have planted 29,000 churches and mission stations.
You can request this book at Gospel for Asia and they will send it to you free.
