Why are we serving with Asian Access?
We are serving with Asian Access because we believe in the importance of developing leaders in Asia. The highest caliber of leaders in Asia are able to access the best leadership resources in the world as a result of the work of Asian Access. We are privileged to work with these men and women in Asia whose commitment to Christ humbles us. We can't wait to see how God will move in Asia this century.
We (Elliott and Lori) first met in 1983 when both went to Japan with Asian Access as short-term missionaries. Now, over 20 years later, we are still serving with Asian Access, though married and working in the U.S. office. Elliott is from Texas and Lori is from Pennsylvania. So God had to work to get us together first in Japan and now in Los Angeles where Ryan and Lindsey were both born.
Elliott is the Vice President for Operations at Asian Access. They have been with Asian Access since 1983.
Words of wisdom...
If you think God might be calling you into missionary service, don't say "NO." Remember Jonah! God has a way of getting you where you need to be, and if it is Japan, an airplane is preferable to a big fish!
When you're in Japan, be sure to...
enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of a completely different culture. What a great opportunity!
Funniest story of life in Japan...
One of my (Elliott's) students in Japan told me in 1983 to cut back on sodas. When I asked him why, he couldn't figure out what exactly to say in English, but finally came up with the phrase, "because it will melt your bones!" Good enough reason for me!
What we've learned here...
You don't have to force anything. God will put you in the right place to use your gifts and abilities for his kingdom. There is no better place to be than in the center of God's will for your life.
How is God blessing your life and ministry?
God has blessed us incredibly with a wonderful church, a wonderful family and a wonderful team of people to work with at Asian Access.
