Here’s a quick video greeting from me at Narita Airport, following three days of meetings with our A2 leadership team.

 This week, you’ll hear from Pastor JE again as he shares about Asian Access in Southern India. As you know, we have a passion for church multiplication and Jeyakaran shares how the ministry has impacted his own life in this arena. He started in ministry as a church planter who multiplied his church but overtime lost momentum for starting new churches. Listen to his video below and see how Asian Access helped re-ignite his original vision...

Atlas of Global Christianity

A2 sponsors a great new global resourceThe Center for the Study of Global Christianity has produced a new resource, The Atlas of Global Christianity.

This resource has such great potential for those of us in mission, that we’re sponsoring it. I commend the work of Dr. Todd Johnson, director of the center, and his research team and recommend you take a look at this worthy resource.

Jeyakaran Emmanuel from Chennai in South IndiaToday, listen to Pastor JE from Chennai, India share how Asian Access is making a difference! In this video Jeyakaran will share how Asian Access is investing in pastors through their character development. This work is foundational as a leader in the church because in order to make disciples, a leader must first be a disciple – one who is deeply rooted in his relationship with Jesus Christ.

This week’s blog has a video clip of a fun baby shower game... Of course, for those of us eating the baby food, I’m not sure how much “fun” it really was. Check out the video clip and you’ll be sure to get a laugh.

As for the celebration, our colleague, Tsuneya Kiguchi and his wife had a new baby and we held a party for them. Their new daughter is named Mioko which has a beautiful meaning. It means “a person who walks with God” or “a person who chooses to obey God as a priority.” What a beautiful name!

It’s so fun to celebrate a newborn’s life. It’s a refreshing reminder of our new life with Christ. That’s why I love the name Mioko so much. When we put our faith in Christ, we have a new set of priorities. We begin a journey of walking with God and choosing to obey him as our first love. It brings a freshness to our life and frees us from the bondage of our past.

We welcome baby Mioko Kiguchi into our family and likewise we are eager to see new babies being born in Christ throughout Asia. What a great day of celebration and what a great reminder of the purpose God has given us as a mission: to see new life in Christ multiplied through vibrant communities of faith across the continent.

Handley family in Karuizawa

What a joy to be with our Asian Access Family in Karuizawa the last several days. Silk and I thoroughly enjoyed being with the team and watching our children bond with our staff families. It seems like every time we turn around, the Lord affirms the sense of family that the A2 community has become for us. What a joy to know that your calling is clear and to work with such a wonderful mission family...
