A2/Philippines Class 1 GraduationAj Moldez is a man of many talents, gifts, and callings. A landscape architect by trade, his Philippines-based firm is set up as a Business as Mission—designed to plant shalom and the presence of the gospel through landscape architecture and design. He also serves on the board of Peace Builders Community Inc., an NGO committed to working for peace with indigenous communities in conflict areas. And through PBC, he has helped to innovate Coffee for Peace, using coffee as a means to establish peace and shalom in conflict areas, tribes, and communities. What Aj is not is a pastor. So when his father, Rev. Herman Moldez, asked Aj to serve as a photographer for the “graduation ceremony for the Asian Access Philippines First Class”, Aj had no idea what he was getting into. It wasn’t until Aj arrived that he realized that his father was one of the graduates.

millersAsian Access/Japan’s Progress Report from 2018

There is much to be thankful to God for in the ministry highlights he brought our way in 2018. Below is a summary of encouraging progress from various ministry categories and missionaries serving in Japan...

kärin primuthAsian Access board member, Kärin Primuth serves as the CEO of visionSynergy, a ministry focused on helping mission movements like Asian Access become stronger in partnership. They are very impressive and I hope you’ll check them out – http://visionsynergy.net/ Most recently Kärin sent me a letter highlighting the impact Asian Access has had on a new venture they are doing. Here’s what Kärin had to say:

Serving on the Asian Access board has not only provided many insights for my own board development, but what I’ve learned about leadership development has also been instrumental in shaping visionSynergy’s network leader development initiatives. We've consistently seen that one of the major barriers to unleashing spiritual transformation is a lack of Christian leaders with skills needed to facilitate collaboration...

Haslam on the mystery of God weaving together his tapestry of our lives

Joe Handley, Bill Haslam, Scott SaulsMost recently we had the privilege of interviewing Governor Bill Haslam, who recently finished his term as Governor of the state of Tennessee. Pastor Scott Sauls from Christ Presbyterian Church in Nashville did a remarkable job of interviewing the Governor. And, the wisdom flowing from Governor Haslam was immense. Here are a few brief video snapshots of our interview in which the Governor speaks about God’s Tapestry. I’m sure you’ll enjoy watching these brief clips and learning from them...

A basic building block in making disciples

building blocks 2x

It was John Maxwell who brought to my attention the fact that experience is not the best teacher. Otherwise, everybody would be getting better and more mature as they grow older. Rather, evaluated experience is the best teacher. Evaluated experience is the experience that is reflected upon and where lessons are learned and growth in maturity follows. As I have taken time to reflect on...

Churches beef up security in the wake of bombings, 2016; courtesy Open Doors USA.

Philippines (MNN) – Three days separated a twin bomb blast at a Catholic church in Jolo and another bomb attack at a mosque in Zamboanga. ISIS claimed Sunday’s attack and government officials blame the terror group for the mosque attack. It’s unsettling, given the siege of Marawi that lasted from May to October 2017. The Philippines has struggled for decades to end a deadly Muslim separatist insurgency in its South. Asian Access’ Philippines director Herman Moldez explains, “The spread of the extremists in the Philippines really was a result of Al Qaeda. There were some people, Muslims, in the Philippines who...

2018 Matching Gift final tally

On behalf of the entire Asian Access family, I want to thank you for your friendship, partnership and generous support. Over the year-end, as you’ll see in our brief video here, the Lord provided more than $565,000 to help us advance the mission of empowering leaders for mission movements in Asia. You were a key part to seeing nearly $316,000 being sent in to match the $250,000 challenge that was given to us. We praise God for you....

handsDo you lead with an open hand or tight fist?

After reading our 2018 ministry breakthroughs report, a friend asked me why Asian Access is growing so rapidly while other better-known ministries may not be growing. For example, he knows of a ministry and leader far better known than Asian Access that is not growing. One reason why we’re seeing exponential growth now—apart from God’s hand of blessing after five decades of sowing— is that I’ve learned the secret to let go...

image009By Guest Contributor: Jerry Hardy 

As all of you know, I am not the smartest one in the room (unless I am alone) or the sharpest knife in the drawer.  Usually, the Lord has to hit me a couple of times to get my attention.  Well, He did this morning. I was reading in A. W. Tozer’s book, The Pursuit of God, the chapter titled, The Gaze of the Soul. Here are some of the highlights: “….. Faith is the gaze of a soul upon a saving God.” ... “They looked unto Him and were lightened: and...

We have both 2019 and 2020 to reach these monumental stretch goals and look forward to celebrations in the Spring and Fall of 2020 to see what God has done. To give you a sense of some of those big goals, here’s a sampling...

kor ls and friends 600pxHappy New Year from Asian Access!

joe headshot 2018 600pxHi friends! What an exciting year it's been with Asian Access this past year as we've seen a number of breakthroughs in the ministry. God has grown our ministry on a number of fronts. First off, new country development… We expanded into two brand-new countries that were really hungry for what we want to offer and what they want to see a delivered. It was so fun to come alongside and see their faces shine after their first two sessions. It's a remarkable year for us on that front. And then as we look towards the future...
