Joe and Cambodian friendMy colleague and friend Meng Aun Hour directs the Asian Access work in Cambodia. God has used Meng in powerful ways that have impacted many developing lives.

He would steal from his own parents to feed his drug habits. Finally, his parents kicked him out of the home. One night, he broke into a home to steal items to resell for drugs.

As he stared out his window overlooking Tokyo in Shinjuku, he wept over the lost people realizing how few knew Jesus. Then he shared his vision which was initially given by his father, renown pastor and missionary Dr. Don Hoke“Japan is the key to Asia!”
