Public Statement:
For Immediate Release (06.12.07)

 

Asian Access President Plans to Step Down in September; Interim President Named.

 

Douglas Birdsall resigns to focus on Lausanne movement

Doug BirdsallGLENDORA, CA (A2) June 12, 2007 - Asian Access, an evangelical mission organization announced today that the organization’s third president, Rev. S. Douglas Birdsall, will be stepping down on September 30, 2007.Birdsall, who assumed the position in 1991, is also the Executive International Chair of the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization (LCWE). He cited the need to focus exclusively on Lausanne movement as the primary reason for stepping down as president of Asian Access. However, he will continue on as an Asian Access missionary, seconded to LCWE and will also continue as a member of the Asian Access board of directors.“After much thought and prayer, I realized that I could no longer effectively lead both organizations.  I remain committed to the people and the vision of Asian Access.  I am grateful for the evidence of God’s provident Hand in using everything I’ve experienced up to this point to prepare me for this new role with Lausanne. I want to give it my all.

Doug Birdsall, PresidentWhen I returned from our Asian Access 40th anniversary celebrations in Malaysia two months ago, I drafted a letter to give you a fresh report. However, it was so full of superlatives that I found it to be "over the top" even for a person of my temperament.So, I have taken time to reflect and gain perspective.During these weeks, we have received e-mails from many of the participants from across Asia.We have also enjoyed reading prayer letters from many of our missionaries in Japan and our staff in the U.S. to see how they reported on our 40th Anniversary festivities.

India (MNN) ― Outsourcing telemarketing, technical support and other call center activities from North America and Europe to India has created an economic boon for the country.

Japan (MNN) ― Japan broke two postwar taboos last week, as its Parliament voted to bring patriotism back into the classroom and to expand the status and mission of its military forces. These are efforts to rebuild national pride and end six decades of constitutionally enforced pacifism.

It's unclear what this will mean for the church, in Japan,

Nepal (MNN) ― Nepal has seen incredible political changes in the past year. Last April, the country went from an absolute monarchy to a constitutional democratic government, moving from the world's only Hindu kingdom to a secular nation. In November, the government and the Maoist rebels brokered a peace treaty to end over a decade of civil war.
