As bad as the COVID pandemic was in India which I wrote about just a few months ago, it is now more than twice that bad in another Asian country based on the number of deaths per capita. And COVID deaths are thought to be drastically undercounted, so the situation is actually much worse.
What is causing the surge there? And what does this have to do with Asian Access?
"Asian Access has invested in dynamic emerging leaders of the Church across the continent. I'm amazed at how God has used Asian Access to foster unity within the body of Christ in these nations. A2 convenes emerging leaders from various backgrounds of the church and provides a vibrant community of learning. This has inspired healing and reconciliation along denominational and ethnic lines in these countries. The local Church is stronger, better equipped and firmly committed to one another due to the ministry of Asian Access."
