Help us match $1,000,000 to bring hope to Japan, as they rebuild:
As we near the first anniversary of Japan's March 11 Triple Disaster, Asian Access has just received a $US 1,000,000 matching opportunity to bring hope and healing to the country.
While we were devastated by the horrific disaster that hit the country nearly a year ago and have grieved with our friends and the country, we are also encouraged by the hope that has birthed out of the ashes of destruction. The Lord has turned a tsunami of destruction into a tsunami of love, and Japanese leaders have reflected on the similarities between this situation and the reality of the pain in the cross of Christ and the corresponding hope that came three days later through the resurrection.
The spiritual healing that is occurring across the affected regions is profound as believers have served as the hands and feet of Jesus bringing hope and healing to the country. This is indeed a "kairos" or God-moment for the Church in Japan; what many have called "Japan's Hour for the Hope of Christ"!
With this, Asian Access launched a strategic sending partnership with SIM USA to help meet the needs. "For the first time in my 30 year cross-cultural ministry career, I've heard local pastors asking me to send hundreds of missionaries to help them in Japan and this partnership will help us meet the need."
With this matching gift, you can help us meet the need to bring hope and healing to the country. Please join us by prayerfully considering a gift to help meet the match; consider whether God might be calling you to Go to Japan; and to pray for the people of Japan following the triple disaster that so deeply affected them last year.
To give to the match, either send a check to Asian Access marked: "$1M Matching Opportunity" or give online here. If you indicate "for Japan Matching Gift" on your check, your gift will be doubled!
Please join us in praying and in giving to help the people of Japan in the midst of this enormous challenge and opportunity!
