Paul EshlemanDay 7 @ #CapeTown2010

 Friday was quite a day as we focused on the remaining task in reaching the world for Christ. Paul Eshelman, formerly with The Jesus Film, presented data on what has recently been called "The Unengaged" — those with the least opportunity to hear about Jesus because there is no known group focused on reaching them...

Day 6 @ #capetown2010

Asian Access hosted a wonderful gathering during Cape Town 2010. Over 75 people were in attendance including alumni, faculty, staff, board, reference council and supporters. It was a great family experience as we celebrated Doug and Jeanie Birdsall's 30th anniversary with the mission. And what a night to celebrate -- in the middle of one of the high points in the history of our mission: The Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization, led by Doug Birdsall...

 

South Africa (MNN) ― He was invited as a delegate from the United States. He will also be a table moderator. We're talking about President of Asian Access Joe Handley and his participation in Cape Town 2010.

Handley says he'll not only be listening to God, "but also kind of engaging the critical issues that the world is facing

More from Day 3 @ Cape Town 2010
Last night I was struck by one of the presenters from the Middle East. He shared there are no unreached children - either they will be reached for Christ or they will be reached by someone or something else. The question is, who will reach them? That comment really struck me...

Day 3 @ Cape Town 2010

The reality and power of reconciliation served as the tapestry of day three here in Cape Town. It began with a wonderful inductive study and exposition of Ephesians 2. "Though we were once dead in sin... now, because of his great mercy, we are alive in Christ... We were once far off... now we have been brought near... We are no longer strangers and aliens but fellow citizens." Oh the riches of Christ and his extravagant love to bring us back to him...

Day 2 @ Cape Town 2010

 Today's focus at Cape Town has been Truth... The crucial importance of the importance of truth today in the midst of a pluralistic society. We walked through an inductive bible study in small groups, diving into Ephesians chapter one. We were reminded of the treasure of the Gospel and the hope we have in Christ alone. Ajith Fernando, Asian Access reference council member, then led us through a wonderful exposition of the richness of this passage and the crucial importance of evangelism. (link to video clip) This...

Day 1 @ Cape Town 2010

 A feast of African culture highlighted the first day of Cape Town 2010. The opening session was spectacular with a full African choir, dance groups, flag ceremonies, and special guest presenters.The first day was spent getting to know our table groups and my table group is made up of people serving in Asia: Singapore, Korea, Vietnam and China. What a blessing to learn that one of...

As I sit here at Heathrow International Airport in transit to Cape Town for Lausanne III, I've been meditating on the words shared by my Chinese brothers who were blocked from attending the Congress. While it saddens me to know that they won't be able to join me and over 4000 Christian leaders for this historic gathering, I'm impressed by their trust in God's sovereignty. Here are some excerpts from my friends that may encourage you in your walk of faith...

South Africa (MNN) ― There's a saying that goes: "The strength of your diversity is the strength of your unity."

It means that many parts can function well if they are motivated under a common purpose. It's also a picture of the body of Christ, united in making His name central. That's a driving force behind Cape

Cape Town 2010 logoCountdown to an historical gathering 

In just a few weeks, Asian Access will be deeply involved in what one article in Christianity Today has called "The Most Diverse Gathering Ever". They recently published the article on Cape Town 2010 in the magazine's September issue. The importance of this event is significant as several leaders echo what one person recently said:

"What happens at...

Road to far-reaching vision

Joining Forces in Japan Toward a Far-reaching Vision

Asian Access plans to greatly expand ministry in Japan by aggressively developing its church multiplication movement. We plan to accomplish this goal by sending more church planting missionaries, as well as identifying even more emerging Japanese leaders to multiply churches at an accelerated rate. In my posts about these plans, we have mentioned our pursuit...

 

 

- by Sue Takamoto -

 

Our family is preparing to come back to Sanda, Japan in a few days with many mixed emotions—how can it be otherwise? Tonight our oldest son Owen was listing all the places we could go upon our return; the friends we will be able to meet again; the Japanese food we can once again enjoy.

 

But there are always tears, as it means once again parting from loved ones. Those who know me or have read my blog (The Takameter) consistently know that this is the most difficult challenge for me in being a missionary…
