Joe talking with A2 participantsNot long ago, I had the privilege of being with some of the alumni from Asian Access in South Asia. What a privilege it was sharing with them and hearing their stories. After sharing briefly about the heart of Asian Access for our alumni—seeing a vibrant community of servant leaders… leading the Church across Asia—we then broke into small groups. Little did I know the treat I was in for. These two men had no one they could confide in prior to Asian Access. But, over the two year process...

Joe and Silk wish all our friends a very Happy Thanksgiving on behalf of everyone at Asian Access.

Asian Access announces largest matching grant in its 50-year history...

It's a miracle that I'm alive today given these dynamics!" Increasingly we serve a world where this type of situation is reality. When I began with Asian Access over nine years ago, several of the countries we serve were facing pressure and persecution; but today it seems that at least half of the countries we work in are under some form of duress if not outright persecution...

It’s been an interesting season for me lately and today was another reminder on the journey to rest. One of the devotionals I read is Skye Jethani’s WITH and today’s post was Rest is the Mark of a Free People

Perhaps my journey will help yours.

The Asian Access board recently did a full executive review with me and while I got high marks across the board on nearly every spectrum, they strongly encouraged me to rest. One of our board members stated the following in an email following our meetings: "Thanks for your kind words about the meetings. I do feel strongly that the single biggest factor in the future of the mission is you being able to develop a governor that throttles your speed back by 25%. The ability to say no, because there will always..."
