From the President

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...

What Does This Mean?

At Asian Access, we say that we change the few who change the many. But what does this mean? It means we intentionally focus on a small number of proven leaders with potential providing a transformation process that then releases them to change the many throughout Asia. First, our model calls for a learning community of 12-15 leaders...

Daniel FongLast December, Asian Access faculty member Daniel Fong (founder and teacher of Million Dollar Baby) taught for our opening session in India. He co-taught with pastor Skye Jethani over a weekend focusing on what we call the most crucial thing in mission: A Love Relationship with God. See our link on our core value: ALL IN with God. During that weekend, Daniel made a profound statement affirming this value: Life on earth is an epic battle between a focus on God or on us.”  

Dr. Yukikazu OtomoPastor Yukikazu Otomo recently shared a book that we published in Japan. I hope that we can someday produce this for the English speaking world but for now, I want to share with you one of the ideas he presents. He talked about the history of the church in Japan and how the conservative and liberal streams of the church focused on different elements of the Gospel. The conservative church focused on evangelism while the more liberal leaning churches focused on social...

A2 Match April2018 header 800x200

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. But before I get to his story in the next paragraph, I want to share some good news—the largest match challenge in Asian Access’ history is still not over. So your gift or pledge at this time can still be doubled!  Now, back to Charya… 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.” You see, Charya was a commander...

A2 50th group public webNext week, Asian Access is hosting our Global Leaders' Summit in SE Asia. While we are gathering, we are aware of the important spiritual battles we face. So, with that in mind, we ask you to be praying for us. Will you join us in prayer? To help you know how to pray, these words of wisdom about strongholds are from Adrian De Visser...
