Happy New Year, Friends!
As Asian Access looks to the coming year, it comes with a lot of enthusiasm for me. We've had a breakthrough year in 2018 and the things on the horizon are so much fun to see happen.
Reaching New Countries
Right now, we have five new countries, I think, even six that might be looking to open with us. And these are countries that are completely closed to the development of leaders within their midst. And it's so fun to come alongside and see them light up and say,
"Oh, we'd really love to have you guys come!"
And so we're excited too as we lean into 2019 to see what God has on the horizon. I think for sure we can open at least three of these five or six new countries. So it'll be an exciting horizon for us.
Empowering Women in Ministry
Beyond that... we are looking to grow when it comes to empowering women in ministry. This past month alone, I met leaders from three new countries that are saying,
"Hey Joe, I've heard about what God is doing through women in these two countries. Can you bring that to our country?"
And so not only are we exploring those new ventures, but it looks like we'll be opening them in 2019. It's a fun year.
On top of those two initiatives, we are looking at expanding at a rapid rate with business professionals. We have leaders from places like Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, and Japan that are saying,
"We are hungry for the development of our capacity as Kingdom marketplace leaders."
So thank you for supporting us, but even more so, please pray as we go into 2019. We want to build on the momentum that was from 2018 and all these breakthroughs and see what God is going to do in the future.
Thank you for praying for us and supporting us as we go into 2019.
