Joe Handley and Doug Birdsall
Wow, what a great installation dinner for Joe Handley this week. Allow me to share a few of my reflections. . .

Joe Handley and Doug Birdsall

Everyone I've talked to has had rave reviews. We've heard it was the "best installation dinner" they have been to from Lake Avenue Church to Rolling Hills Church and everywhere in...

Last week I attended a gathering of North American pastors who were trying to discern the American Church’s Role in World Evangelism today. We listened to Global Leaders from the Majority World and responded through dialog and discussion. All of this was a part of preparing ourselves for the next Lausanne meeting in Cape Town 2010.

While in Cambodia...

I asked Dr. Perry Bowers why he would take a few weeks of his time to come to Cambodia to train only 12 pastors when he could be training thousands of pastors in other settings.

His answer? ...

mongolian horsemilk 1Have you ever had horse's milk? I have... Bruce Johnson and I had a wonderful trip to Asia recently and while in Mongolia our A2 leadership team took us on a fun little excursion about an hour or so outside of Ulaan Baatar. We entered a Gurt (Yurt for my Kazakh friends) and the hosts offered us a goblet of horse's milk as a special gift. So, each of us in turn, drank from the metal goblet. All I can say is "What an unusual taste!" ...

 

Here's a brief video clip of me with a good view of Ulaanbaatar, the capital city.

Please continue praying for the Church in Mongolia.

My previous post highlighted Pastor Ariunbold in Mongolia during my recent visit. I figured it would be great to let you hear directly from him.

Here he responds to my question, "What impact has Asian Access had on your life and ministry?"

Please pray for the Church in Mongolia to transform the nation through discipleship, one person at a time. This is the common goal of churches and pastors I've encountered here.

For Christ's Kingdom,

Joe in Mongolia with Pastor Chinzorig, Pastor Ariunbold, of and Bruce JohnsonWhat a terrific time I’ve had in Mongolia! Pastor Ariunbold (pictured between Bruce Johnson and me) expanded his vision tremendously through Asian Access. Initially he simply thought about developing his own church but following the A2 experience, Ariunbold gained a greater vision for ...

 

My eyes have been glued to the Olympics the last week or so. The opening ceremony, Michael Phelps and Dara Torres—all have captured my imagination. The opening was a fresh reminder of what heaven will look like (Revelation 5:9): people from every tongue and tribe worshipping God in unity. What a glorious day that will be! The Olympics sort of foreshadow that for me. Before Revelation 5:9 though, we have some ...

 

Joe with Pastor Masuda & family

 It is so exciting to now be up and running as the president of Asian Access. My first few weeks have been inspiring as I’ve met many of our staff and partners in the US and Japan. I’m also looking forward to another upcoming trip at the end of August to Mongolia, Cambodia, Singapore and one additional country to continue meeting our team!

 

Networks that Multiply Churches

 

God is doing awesome things and it is such a joy to see what is happening.  A few weeks ago. . .

a ger

I never particularly liked gers (yurts) since my childhood, being born and raised in the city, thinking it is not modern, messy, primitive, complicated etc. After Jesus accepted me, I started to realize many negative principles behind the city lifestyle, and started valuing old way of Mongolians living in gers. I probably can not live in a ger, but serious about applying the principles of community living and fighting the spirit of self-seeking and materialism...

A few weeks ago, I met Ken, the founder of our mission. What an amazing guy! Ken is a passionate follower of Christ who is a catalytic leader in God’s mission. What struck me more than anything was a story that arose during our conversation. When Ken began the work in Japan over 40 years ago, he asked a Japanese pastor about his vision. The pastor went on in great detail about his vision for multiplying churches around Tokyo. After sharing a good bit of time, the Japanese leader said, "I'm sorry, I've been talking all this time about my vision. Would you please tell me about your vision for the ministry?"

 

 

Joe with former interim president Bruce JohnsonWhat a fantastic time I've had here in Japan the last couple weeks! I've traveled North to South and back again and met tons of wonderful pastors and our incredible Asian Access mission family. It’s been totally awesome! God is doing great things across the country; things that I had no idea were going on. . .
