Like you, all of us at Asian Access are facing the challenges surrounding our world from these tumultuous days.
The pandemic has forced most of the countries we work in to either go on lockdown or at least practice social distancing and the economic conditions have been immense. Many of our partners shared basic survival needs that are overwhelming. I have a needs list from them for well over $100,000 alone just for food to feed the poor. Many have lost friends and colleagues to the coronavirus and the pandemic seems to have no end in sight, or at least is pretty unpredictable.
Add to these the racial and political polarization rising in several countries: China and Hong Kong, India and China, the USA and many more.
Wisdom from the Community
Our team and partners have been sharing wisdom in light of all of this which you can see here:
I’m so proud of the wisdom they provide and I’m sure you’ll enjoy learning from them.
For those wanting to dig deeper into the spiritual conditions our world is facing and hear from leaders who are reflecting biblically on the issues, Asian Access is connected with several networks that are sharing insightful theological responses. There is a range of perspectives expressed so we encourage you to prayerfully ponder what you hear and see. We wanted to at least share some resources that may prove helpful as you ponder all that is happening around us.
- Lausanne Movement
- World Evangelical Alliance
- National Association of Evangelicals
- Pentecostal World Fellowship
We trust these prove helpful as we navigate these waters together.
Thank you for journeying together with us. And, thanks for praying. The Asian Access family is grateful for you and we love hearing from you!
God bless you,
Rev. Joseph W. Handley, Jr., Ph.D.
