I want to wish you all a very happy Independence Day this weekend! What a joy for those of us who are Americans to celebrate the freedoms we have in this world.
As one who works globally, I'm well aware of these freedoms. Every day, I seem to hear about the Persecuted Church. And we even have friends right now whose children are in custody. And it deeply impacts you when you know these things. It really makes you grateful for these United States—that we get to have these freedoms.
Religious Liberty Partnership
Asian Access has recently become an Associate Member of the Religious Liberty Partnership (RLP). And that means we have the ability to come alongside the Persecuted Church in a stronger way. In fact, we're serving as a part of the task force working on leadership development, and that will empower us even further to come alongside and really help our brothers and sisters in Christ who are facing these difficulties.
Remembering the Persecuted
So today we celebrate the freedoms we have. We're grateful for what God has done here in America. But please be mindful of those brothers and sisters who are serving Christ globally—who are facing pressure and persecution. God bless you and thank you for coming alongside.
Thank You for Your Prayers and Support
I want to thank you for your prayers and faithful, ongoing support. You help us to come alongside leaders who are under the pressure of persecution.
