  • 4 Ways to Give on GivingTuesday 2022

    A2 GivingTuesday 4Ways to Give IG1

    Today is #GivingTuesday...

    GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. While GivingTuesday happens every Tuesday, the annual celebration of generosity will happen on November 29, 2022.

    GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past 10 years, this idea has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

  • Heading into Thanksgiving week full of gratefulness

    A2 HappyThanksgiving 2021

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    As Thanksgiving draws near, I’m reminded of the bountiful harvest that comes with the season. A few hours away from my home, my family would often visit the apple orchards this time of year and taste the most delicious of crisp, fresh apples. I love the green ones because of their tart flavor. I’m also reflecting on those seasons where I visited family in Oklahoma seeing all sorts of grains spanning for miles on end.

  • Takkyubin Church: Generation to Generation

    Part2ohashi 3 generations

    I was so inspired a few weeks ago visiting my colleague Pastor Hideo Ohashi. He has served faithfully with Asian Access over several decades and his church is a remarkable testament to God’s faithfulness to Japan.

    You’ll see him pictured here with his son and grandson: three generations of pastors! What a powerful image of God’s work from one generation to the next.

  • Camellia Flower and the Gospel

    00399 00689As Silk and I are saying farewell to our home of the last 4.5 years, we have visited our friends and colleagues in several places. We wish we’d have time to see everyone but the coronavirus has limited our options. One of the places we were able to visit was the sites of the “Hidden Christians” in Japan. By now you have heard of the book and film “Silence” which reveals some of their story. They went through horrendous persecution for their faith and the stories we heard of their resilience, perseverance, and faithfulness despite the awful treatment and their ultimate sacrifice were sobering and inspiring...

  • Sacred hope in the midst of crisis

    ariga prayerltr 1“If My people who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

    Truly this is an unprecedented pandemic throughout the world. This unknown power is affecting politics, education, economic, social, home and mass communications. Peoples are in great fear and uncertainty. On the other hand, God’s peoples are coming together for prayers and united for the bold actions of love. This crisis may turn to breakthrough!

  • Alumnus plants 77 churches since graduating

    Last month while attending a session in Cambodia, we spent some time with Asian Access alumnus BN (pictured here). Pastor BN has a remarkable story. He had a brutal past, participating in some of the ugliest history his country has ever seen. He was personally responsible for horrible atrocities many times over. After the Khmer Rouge was pushed to the sidelines in Cambodia, following the Killing Fields, he went into hiding. Along the way, his wife met Jesus and he was astounded that she loved Jesus so much that she would often disobey him just to attend church. He even beat her many times admonishing her not to go to church. But, she kept going...{addthis off}

  • Changing the few in Cambodia who change the many

    The working team of A2/CambodiaPictured here with me is the Asian Access "working team" from Cambodia. They work with Pastor Meng Aun Hour (far right) of the photo to lead the work of Asian Access in the country. They are hitting way above their weight as a country, and it’s fun to see God’s story unveiled through them. The pastor in the middle left side of the picture has seen remarkable fruit since graduating from Asian Access. He’s clearly a keen example of God “Changing the Few who Change the Many.” He took what he learned through Asian Access and began multiplying it and that’s a key reason why Meng chose him to be on their working team. {addthis off}

  • Church multiplication networks widen and deepen in Japan

    Pastor Fukuda on Japan's "Vision Festa"

    Pastor Makoto FukudaI’m Makoto Fukuda from Grace City Church Tokyo. I’m a church planter as we as a pastor of the church. This year’s Church multiplication Vision Festa was great. I’ve noticed that this Vision Festa had much wider network than the one we had before in Tokyo. I can see increased interests in church planting and church multiplication, and I realized that its work has been spread, deepen, and strengthen. I really saw God has been at his work. Our work of church planting has been in the urban city area, and I saw...{addthis off}

  • The Wind of God is Blowing (in Japan)

    Vision Festa: an inspiring gathering of Japanese leaders

    Ever since the Japan Evangelism Congress in 2017, Japanese Church leaders have been gathering together seeking to double the percentage of Christians in the country (Lord willing by 2023) and praying for a 10x10 blessing (by 2024) where Japan will receive 10 times the blessings. Vision Festa is where leaders come together to share inspiring reports of what God is doing in Japan and this year we were encouraged once again by countless stories of how God is moving in Japan. Between the sessions, I heard stories of many coming to faith and several baptisms; far more than I am accustomed to hearing living here. Every year I leave inspired with what God is doing but this year felt special. It feels like God is on the move and that we are on the cusp of a breakthrough... {addthis off}

  • 10:2

    10:2The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. “Therefore pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into the harvest.” – Luke 10:2 Maya Chittry, one of our national directors, recently spoke to a conference in Japan on the topic of intercession. She shared about a group of ladies from her country that regularly gather together for prayer. They often fast and pray for their nation, the communities and families they have, and for other countries. I’ve even experienced them praying for me and my family several times over the years. She talked about how a Buddhist leader in one village who was stridently anti-Christian came down with boils. It just so happened that Maya’s ladies had been praying for that village for six months. When this Buddhist leader was at his wits end in trying to solve the problem, he called the ladies to pray as a last resort and he got healed. Today his whole family are believers in Jesus...{addthis off} 

  • Your Church is Like a Factory

    church is a factoryNot long ago, one of our national directors was sharing about visiting a leading pastor in his nation. He was visiting to see if they could work together toward human rights in the nation. They are a country whose Christian population is constantly scrutinized and often persecuted for their faith. He went not knowing what this well-known pastor might say. In fact, he wasn’t even sure he’d be willing to help because often churches like this one, led by this pastor can become insular focused exclusively on their own congregation. However, this day, the famous pastor said to the Asian Access country director,...{addthis off}

  • "God could never forgive me!" ... A GivingTuesday story

    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,...{addthis off}

  • A Big Vision for Japan:

    Vision Festa Church Multiplication Conference

    vision festa panelThe Church in Japan faces a crisis. And Japan’s pastors and church leaders are stepping up to face it head-on. The crisis? Unless the Church begins to grow immediately, it is possible that the Christian community in Japan will literally die out within 30 years. It’s stark evidence that illustrates how difficult it has been for the Gospel to impact the Japanese culture. The encouragement? Leaders in Japan are collaborating to explore new ways to plant and multiplying churches. In October, over 100 leaders from throughout Japan came together at VisionFesta...{addthis off}

  • Meet Ariunbold: A "Bold" Vision for Church Planting

    00333 00553Meet Ariunbold! He has vision like I’ve rarely seen. It’s a God-given vision, passion, and gift mix that truly is rare among pastors these days but one that Asian Access loves to fan the flames for. Ariunbold truly is “Bold” in his faith and action. When he joined the first A2 cohort in Mongolia almost 20 years ago, Ariunbold had started 3 churches. But through Asian Access he was inspired and equipped to take his unique gifts into a whole new stratosphere. He is the embodiment of our brand: “Changing the few who change the many”... {addthis off}

     

  • Agape Love

    kishinamiagape love - n. selfless love of one person for another without sexual implications (especially love that is spiritual in nature)

    Silk and I enjoyed visiting Pastor Kishinami this week who is noted for planting 33 house chapels in Tohoku following the triple disaster of March 11, 2011. What a wonderful visit with tremendous lessons learned. The key to Pastor Kishinami’s success has been Agape Love! He shared how love, without expecting anything in return (no return on investment), is the key to evangelism and church planting. While we were together, Pastor Kishinami even cut the grass of one of the friends to show his love for the neighbors as a tangible expression of this love. It was fun watching him serve and interact with the people. See the photo of him serving the community! {addthis off} 

  • Reminder: Double your gift before it's too late

    A2 Match April2018 header 800x200

    Good news! We are getting very close to meeting our matching gift—we just need $12,448 more. If you give soon, your gift can still be doubled! Recently I met a mangled, old-looking pastor 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 convicted during the session as they talked about the apostle Paul being chief among sinners. He later confessed to the director, "I’m worse than that man."
