From the President

Asian Access was so impressed, I asked her to join our board!

Upon Adrian’s recommendation, I quickly invited her to teach with Asian Access and boy was I impressed. She co-taught with me in Cambodia which she references below and as I got to know her that week, I thought, Janice would make a great board member.

That led us on a several month journey of discernment… More on that later. But first, check out Janice’s sharing about her time in Cambodia...

Just one divine appointment, and the next thing I knew, Joe Handley invited me to teach with him in Cambodia. What an amazing group of pastors and ministry leaders I met there!

I was most impressed by their faithful enthusiasm in the midst of religious pressures, their collaborative and supportive spirit regardless of their ministry or denominational affiliations, and how authentically they shared their lives - hardships, blessings, struggles, joys. In addition to more seasoned pastors, the group included younger pastors and their spouses as church planting teams, and young women leading ministries. I love the integrated nature of the A2 group - regardless of denomination, ministry type/size, or gender. This group had been together for 2 years and I was blessed to witness their graduation ceremony where they shared their testimonies of the life change through the A2 cohort group. I saw first-hand what “changing the few who change the many” looks like as the leaders told their own stories of transformation and how A2 has impacted their lives, families, and ministries toward sustainability and growth through church planting and increasing ministry scope. And I have no doubt of the Spirit’s work in these amazing servants and the A2 program that brought them together.

The dedication of the volunteer national leader, Meng Aun Hour and his wife, Rady, and the team he had developed to lead the A2 effort in Cambodia are exemplary, yet very humble servants of the Lord.

Though I didn’t under Khymer enough to understand every conversation, I could see the heart-felt relationships and support that they gave to every member of this group. Before I went, I was told that A2 is a “family.” 

As volunteers, they did this out of brotherly and sisterly love and service - as a Kingdom family in the best sense and a “picture of heaven.”

The Asian Access board invited Janice to sit in with us at our most recent board retreat and what a hoot she is. We even had a little extra fun on the football field of Ohio State together. More importantly, Janice experience, wisdom and participation were so impressive that we invited her to join us and she happily agreed.

What a thrill to welcome Janice Munemitsu to our board. She’ll bring a lot of experience and insight to our team. We’re excited to have her with us!
