As Asia explodes with the coronavirus and pressures mount on leaders, Asian Access alumni are reaching out. It was this type of service inspiring our latest challenge to further equip them to persevere and lead during crises.
The pressures are immense as the latest news reports convey:
- Spared for Months, Vietnam Faces a Wave of New Infections
- COVID-19 Leads to Prosecution of House-Church Group in Vietnam
Pastors we know are facing situations like this in multiple countries. It’s so hard!
In the midst of their pain, many of whom are facing incarceration, here is what our alumni are doing as they advocate for their colleagues:
In His mercy, He is giving us opportunity to share Christ to Lawyers, police and even a Muslim who is suffering cancer! That very Muslim admits that he would pray to Christ! God is using Pastor A as she is a living witness for God’s mighty hands.
It inspired me that people facing such enormous pressure, are actively sharing their faith in the midst of their pain. They are a model for me as I look at the more minor problems I face on a daily basis.
Thank you for praying for them and helping us help them! Joe!
