From the President

“When we came together, we really clicked with each other. And we liked the philosophy of Asian Access. They have flexibility. They respect the local people’s identity, their culture, and their way of working.” – Soner Tufan

As you may have heard, Asian Access is on the move. The Lord opened doors in the other half of Asia and we are now serving on the Western edges of the continent and about ready to open a new continent all together.

I was recently in Turkey where we’ve been working digitally during covid and my friend quoted above highlighted why he is encouraged by our conversation. He serves with a network called Kurtulus led by a friend and pastor Ihsan Ozbek that is one of the stronger church planting networks in the country.

To hear more of Soner’s story, you can read or listen to his Mission Network News broadcast with us: Turkey deports almost 200 Protestants since 2018

You’ll hear the hopes of the Turkish church when it comes to church planting and Soner’s concern about the lack of training. Tufan says:

“There is no Bible College. Also, we need to pray for the young generation. It’s really difficult to raise godly children in Turkey. I have three children. All of them went to school where they were the only Christians.”

Tufan hopes to plant more churches in the future with the help of Asian Access.

Do pray for us as we pray and plan to serve. In addition to Turkey, we have several conversations going about working in Central Asia, the Middle East and North Africa.

God bless you,
