geese story 1I just returned from a land of the richest soil. The fruit of what God has been doing in this country the last 25 years is enormous. Some of the key alumni gathered to meet with me expressing a new found enthusiasm for the future of what God is doing in their country and how Asian Access can assist.

He was the focal point for many of the stories coming out of Japan following the triple disaster on 3.11. His now famous story of the Exodus Church can be found nearly anywhere online. And, it’s a story full of life and leadership lessons. Yesterday I heard him preach as a guest speaker at Kurume Christ Church in Higashikurume, Tokyo. Pastor Sato asked this question...
