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...

A2 Board of Directors

What makes a great board of directors?

He said, "We’re now looking to send missionaries from our church to other parts of our country but we don’t know how"...

We love the people, the partners, and the generous friends of the ministry and we feel completely blessed to be a part of the movement that is occurring across Asia for Christ...

Here's my latest videolog from my Japan trip where I attended the national pastors' gathering in Shizuoka.

Almost every time I walk into our Glendora office, I’m quickly greeted by this wonderful phrase. No matter how often I make it up there, Ellen Hale greets me in the sweetest possible way. It’s as if I’m the surprise of her life every time I show up and the sense of joy she embodies is immense ...
