Friends of Asian Access,
I am thrilled to announce today that Asian Access has a new name. I have been waiting a long time to tell you, and I have simply been bursting to get this out there!
February 3 (2.3.23) is the day we have targeted to share the news of the ministry's expansion which is also driving the moment for a new name for the organization. I think you'll agree it's a wonderful connection to the past and a bridge to the next era of ministry to which we're called. Stay tuned for this exciting news!
This was the most encouraging Japan National Pastors’ Conference I remember in my 14 years with Asian Access.
The theme as set by Pastor Yoshiya Hari, Asian Access/Japan National Director, was “From 2020 to 2030” and Pastor Shinji Takita’s words captured it best:
"Who does this?"
Andreas Thapa from Nepal shared this with me thanking me for the way the Asian Access family has rallied around their family. His mom, Sareeta, has been directing the ministry of Asian Access/Nepal from its beginning and sadly, the last few years, she’s been battling ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease).
