News and notes from around the A2 Community

Official blogs from Asian Access

David & JackieDavid and Jackie Ro, OMF missionaries, were with me this week in Taiwan. They are some of the finest servants of Christ you can meet. Jackie serves as the director for A2's Women in Ministry leader development program, while David serves as the East Asia Regional Director for the Lausanne Movement and for Gordon Conwell Seminary’s J. Christy Wilson Center for World Missions. As we were sharing with leaders in Taipei about the ministry of Asian Access, they both had some profound insight to share: insight that was incredibly encouraging to...

Pastor RajivPastor Rajiv recently shared with me his compelling story. It was powerful to hear what God was teaching him. Prior to joining Asian Access, Pastor Rajiv was “on a journey of big.” He enjoyed a very prominent position at a large church. However, as he reflected on success, he wondered if his ministry measured up. He began questioning the real impact of his kingdom work—despite his popularity and notoriety. As Pastor Rajiv grew through the Asian Access learning community, he began seeking the Lord in fasting and prayer...

Freeing Bible Teaching from the Bonds of Culture

Why we lack good Bible teachers (2:15)

Why can Bible teaching in countries like Bangladesh be so dry and unappealing? Peter Mazumder shares why so many Bible college graduates in Bangladesh begin their ministries unmotivated, as well as unequipped, to teach the Bible with life and power...

Asian Access announces largest matching grant in its 50-year history...

Just a quick reminder: every dollar you give to Asian Access will be doubled. This is cause for celebration, for you and me both! I also want to thank you for your faithful support. It's because of your prayers, the investment of your time and energy, and through your financial support, that you helped lay a solid foundation for Asian Access. Through your love and support, the body of Christ is coming together in unity. Relationships are being restored, churches are being planted, the love of Jesus is being displayed and God's Kingdom is advancing across Asia! You are truly the unsung hero behind the story and impact of A2 and I want you to know how grateful I am for you...

Joe talking with A2 participantsNot long ago, I had the privilege of being with some of the alumni from Asian Access in South Asia. What a privilege it was sharing with them and hearing their stories. After sharing briefly about the heart of Asian Access for our alumni—seeing a vibrant community of servant leaders… leading the Church across Asia—we then broke into small groups. Little did I know the treat I was in for. These two men had no one they could confide in prior to Asian Access. But, over the two year process...

Asian Access announces largest matching grant in its 50-year history...

Every dollar you give to Asian Access will be doubled. This is cause for celebration, for you and me both! But before I get to the details of that match, let me tell you about another celebration. In my time as President of Asian Access, 2017 has been one of the most incredible years for our ministry. It started with our 50th anniversary Jubilee celebration in Jakarta where 150 members of the Asian Access family from 13 countries, came together to...

The Legacy of Dr. George Leslie Mackay

Not long ago I had the privilege of speaking at the Asia Church Leaders Forum in Taipei, Taiwan. It was an honor to share especially as the only non-Asian asked to talk about “Asians Reaching Asia”. Even more powerful for me though was...

persecuted pastor imageRecently during our national directors meeting in Thailand, one of Asian Access directors said the following: “It is very difficult to run our programs in our country because of political pressure and persecution. It's a miracle that I'm alive today given these dynamics!" Increasingly we serve a world where this type of situation is reality. When I began with Asian Access over nine years ago, several of the countries we serve were facing pressure and persecution; but today it seems that at least half of the countries we work in are under some form of duress if not outright persecution...

It’s been an interesting season for me lately and today was another reminder on the journey to rest. One of the devotionals I read is Skye Jethani’s WITH and today’s post was Rest is the Mark of a Free People

Perhaps my journey will help yours.

The Asian Access board recently did a full executive review with me and while I got high marks across the board on nearly every spectrum, they strongly encouraged me to rest. One of our board members stated the following in an email following our meetings: "Thanks for your kind words about the meetings. I do feel strongly that the single biggest factor in the future of the mission is you being able to develop a governor that throttles your speed back by 25%. The ability to say no, because there will always..."
