From the President

ec crossing the uncrossableWhen the Titanic went down, Major Arthur Peuchen was one of those who survived. Why? He was able to discern between the essential and non-essential. As the great ship was going down, he was faced with a crucial last-minute choice. On the one hand, he could choose the jewels or monies left on the ship for the taking. Or he could choose three oranges instead. He grabbed the fruit. Why? Because oranges could provide sustenance for him and others floating at sea, waiting for rescuers to come... 

A2 Match April2018 header 800x200

Good news! We are getting very close to meeting our matching gift—we just need $12,448 more. If you give soon, your gift can still be doubled! Recently I met a mangled, old-looking pastor in one of the small Asian Access training cohorts in Cambodia. Charya’s bones were crooked, he was missing an eye, he could barely walk. Charya (not his real name for security reasons) was convicted during the session as they talked about the apostle Paul being chief among sinners. He later confessed to the director, "I’m worse than that man."

Will you pray for the nations?A few weeks ago we asked you to pray for us as we went into our Global Leaders Summit. You may recall the post from my friend and colleague Adrian De Visser: Strongholds: A Call to Prayer. Lori Snuggs and Adrian led us in some very powerful prayer times in KL and these slides capture the essence of their sharing. We prayed through each country knowing the power of prayer. As Dr. Robert Coleman shared the key to breakthrough...

Edmund Chan's Message #2Chinzo and Edmund Chan

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. – Galatians 2:20 — Pastor Edmund Chan began his second message sharing with our Global Leaders sharing this verse suggesting the Church is losing ground in much of the world today.  Why? He quoted Pastor Joseph Tson who told Adrian Rogers, “The American Church has substituted commitment for surrender!” As Galatians states, we must be crucified. That means our entire...

Edmund Chan's Message #1

Edmund Chan speaking at A2 Global Leaders' Summit 2018"The most important reality we live in is the unseen world. Ultimate reality is the Kingdom of God." – Pastor Edmund Chan

Pastor Edmund Chan encouraged our global leadership community through several profound teachings on discipleship in Malaysia recently. And, he walked with us through meals, discussions, and even an outing to the city. What a beautiful example for us as we seek to live lives more rooted in Christ. His first teaching focused on Entering the Sanctuary from the words of Asaph in Psalm 73...

Joe and PaulWe met at 4 A.M. for our shuttle to the airport… Little did we know what God had in store for us that day. I traveled with Dr. Paul Ariga from our A2 Vision Council from Malaysia back to Japan following our Global Leaders' Summit and Vision Council meetings. Our shuttle was a Tamil Taxi driver who grew up in Kuala Lumpur. I noticed he had several Manchester United buttons hanging from his rear view mirror so began a delightful conversation. He told me all about his favorite sport and team and was surprised to hear that I knew a World Cup teammate of the renown soccer star Maradona...
