It's getting tough out there...

ancient antique architecture 879359 500pxIt seems like every day, I’m hearing more reports about persecution happening in the world. I recently left a country that is under significant duress. The week we were there, a crackdown occurred in one of their most famous towns – a town known for having one of their national symbols. The pastors, alumni of Asian Access, had gathered together for a city-wide gathering of churches, only to be harassed by their local community. It seems that everyone is after them: government officials, religious authorities and even the neighbors. It’s sad to see and many lives are often at stake. This type of situation is on the rise in many of the countries we work in. We see this type of harassment happening in more than half the countries we work in and so we could use your prayers. More importantly, they need your prayers!

Paying It Forward: the Generosity of a New Asian Access Cohort

“While we were praying for [the new country] last night, we felt that God was telling us to bless them.” That’s what Asian Access participants in a newly-launched country said to me. (For security purposes, we cannot identify this country by name.) But before you read the rest of this encouraging story, I want to ask you to consider an opportunity to partner with Asian Access to equip and empower more pastors and marketplace leaders across Asia. And whatever you give, up to a total of $250,000 will be matched dollar for dollar. Leveraging investment is so important. Most of the leaders who participate in Asian Access come from modest financial means. Their home countries often struggle with economic hardship and poverty. In addition, pastors are usually paid less than the average workers in their countries. Many pastors must work as farmers, taxi drivers, or laborers to make enough to support their families, while they minister virtually for free. This is the case in the newly-launching country, where an Asian Access orientation session was held this past July. While some of the pastors from metro areas are in better financial situations, many of the leaders live on very little. And by Western standards, all of these leaders, including...

A2 GivingTuesday 2018 800px

Today is #GivingTuesday... We have two days for getting deals—Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But on #GivingTuesday, we have a day for giving back. Together, people are creating a new ritual for our annual calendar. #GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season, and every act of generosity counts. Asian Access is participating in #GivingTuesday to help leaders like Pastor Charya, a mangled, old-looking man 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. Charya (not his real name for security reasons) was spiritually convicted during the session as they talked about the apostle Paul being chief among sinners. He later confessed to the director,...
