payne jd 300x300px“I am extremely encouraged when I hear of an organization with a vision to influence leaders, local churches, church networks, and entire countries for the sake of Christ and His Kingdom. Such is a biblical vision that demands appropriate action!

Asian Access has that vision and is on the move! They understand as the Lord of the harvest sends laborers into His field, such servants need to be properly nurtured and developed for the multiplication of disciples, leaders, and churches. Check out their passion, perspective, and pathway to the field and be encouraged!”
