    The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.
    — Matthew 9:37-38

    I have great news to share about the 2021 giving challenge issued to Asian Access by some very generous financial partners last year!

    The purpose of this podcast is to showcase how much God loves Japan through different stories of people. It is like God sending a care package to the ones He loves in Japan!

    As our world becomes increasingly complex, I’m thrilled to announce that James Choung has joined our Council of Reference. James leads strategy and innovation for InterVarsity USA and these are days where these two attributes are essential for ministry. He’s also a student of Dr. Bobby Clinton in leader formation which has been so vital to Asian Access. He’s adapted the ideas and framework Bobby developed for the next generation, a generation that is pivotal for the future of the Church.

  • A2's Projects for GivingTuesday 2021

    GivingTuesday 2021 globe MENA

    Today is #GivingTuesday...

    We have weeks for getting deals and for shopping during this Christmas season. But on #GivingTuesday, we have a day set aside 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 make a difference in our world.

  • Bring A2 to the Middle East & North Africa

    Thank you for helping us fulfill this 2021 giving challenge that helps us launch in the MENA region. Ongoing support of A2 for this multiyear project for the expansion into the Middle East and North Africa is vitally important. As we move forward, please consider partnering with us in continuing this special project beyond 2022...

    What's Missing?

    "Joe, we have tons of leadership training in this region but what is missing is relationship. There are wonderful groups serving our region offering all sorts of material, ideas, tips and techniques. Many of those are good but what is lacking is a deep commitment to journey together. If Asian Access can walk with us, together hand-in-hand, it would be a tremendous encouragement."

  • Remembering Bob Fuhriman

    Robert Fuhriman

    My Tribute to Robert Fuhriman

    Blessed to Be in Community with Bob

    Bob & Beth Fuhriman served as missionaries with Cru in Japan starting in 1968. In 1981, they switched to Asian Access (then, LIFE Ministries). I met them in 1987 as an Asian Access short-termer living in Tokyo. I remember carefully watching several of these long-term missionaries to see if I could possibly become one, as well as if these were the people whose community I wanted to join.

  • Developing Leaders under Persecution and Pandemic

    crisismatch ask may2021 800x200 a2

    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?

  • Freedoms in U.S., but Persecution Elsewhere

    remembering the persecuted

    My friends, 

    I want to wish you all a very happy Independence Day this weekend! What a joy for those of us who are Americans to celebrate the freedoms we have in this world.

    As one who works globally, I'm well aware of these freedoms. Every day, I seem to hear about the Persecuted Church. And we even have friends right now whose children are in custody. And it deeply impacts you when you know these things. It really makes you grateful for these United States—that we get to have these freedoms.

  • Announcing a matching challenge to develop leaders during a crisis

    Hello Friends,

    What a year you and I have been through and our entire planet. This COVID-19 has just slammed us, as the world has faced this crisis. And for those of us in the U.S., it's getting a little easier and we praise God for that.

  • You can do something about the loss of pastors in India.

    Good News Amidst Growing COVID Crisis in India 

    As you are well aware, the COVID crisis has gripped the world, perhaps none worse than what we are seeing in India today. Fortunately, Asian Access just received a matching challenge to help serve the church in India as well as the Middle East.

  • Ten Principles that have Shaped my Life

    Words that have impacted my life and leadership

    1. “START AT THE TOP AND WORK YOUR WAY DOWN. THEY MIGHT SAY 'NO' BUT THEY COULD SAY 'YES'."

    Dr. Robert Clinton, a former professor of leadership at Fuller Seminary had five principles of mentoring. His first principle; it is the mentee’s responsibility to find a mentor. This could be interpreted as the principle of attraction.

  • Beware of Becoming a Christian Atheist

    denton rod vertical

    CHRISTIAN ATHEIST: Is a person who believes in God but lives as though God doesn’t exist or is largely irrelevant to the everyday business of living.

    The term CHRISTIAN ATHEIST is a figure of speech called an oxymoron in which seemingly contradictory terms appear side by side. Other examples of oxymorons that perhaps you have used are:

  • One-Percenters... that build a culture of excellence

    I was most interested to learn from a family in my church about their recent holiday in another state. Even more so when they had taken the time to visit a very well known church in that state. I asked them what was it that impressed them most about the church and what could we learn from them.

  • Evangelism: from an optional extra to an important priority

    shutterstock_141036124There is much to suggest that the church in the west is living in a post-Christian generation. Evangelism has fallen on hard times, and ironically it seems that seminars to help people learn how to share their faith are doing no better.  And yet our denominations, although aware of their continued decrease in numbers, seem largely unmotivated to address the real issue. If ever there was a time to get back to basics, then surely it is now and I would like to suggest that the following 10 keys will give you a platform on which to build a fruitful church that will reach lost people. These 10 keys will help you to take evangelism in your church from being an optional extra to an important priority...

  • You Are A Heromaker!

    nichols laurie 2020Highlighting the Heromakers Movement

    A new movement is afoot and I trust you’ll not only follow the snowballing momentum, but that you’ll dive in and become all that God has called you to be. My friend Laurie Nichols recently stepped out on her own to launch the Heromakers Movement and highlight the stories of people who have risen above the fray to shine the light of Christ in our world. I’m so proud of Laurie. I worked with her while she served at the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College and it took a ton of courage for her to take this leap of faith, especially during a year like this. Shout out to heromakers like you, Laurie! Jesus says, “You are the light of the world.” (Matthew 5:14) and indeed he has called us to be game-changers and heromakers, whether we are soccer moms or engaging...

  • Choose your friends carefully! Your future depends on it.

    friends duy pham Cecb0 8Hx o unsplash 640pxOne of the wisest persons in the Bible wrote the following words that have served me well in my life of ministry:

    “The righteous choose their friends carefully, But the way of the wicked leads them astray.”
    — 
    Proverbs 12:26

    So important was this principle for his readers to take to heart, that he repeated it in varying ways through the book of Proverbs. “Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.” Proverbs 13:20...

  • What do you do when your friends desert you?

    deserted lucas campoi e4A XRcjLdA unsplashAn important leadership lesson: What do you do when your mates desert you?

    It can be lonely at the top. Like the time the Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy from a damp, dark prison cell, on trial in a Roman court, believing that the time for his departure was near. As I recently read this story, I couldn’t help being reminded of one of the great challenges that leaders need to be ready and equipped to face at critical times in their ministry. That being, what to do when your mates desert you? Paul describes this situation in 2 Timothy 4:16-17. “At my first defence, NO ONE came...

  • Write... with Emotional Intelligence

    laptop notepad nick morrison FHnnjk1Yj7Y unsplashWe live in a world where emotional intelligence (EQ) is of more importance than intelligence quotient (IQ). “Emotions impact everything we do, think and say, and for this reason, a whole set of skills are all enhanced by emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability to recognise and understand emotions in ourselves and others, and our ability to use this AWARENESS to manage our behaviour and relationships.” (Talentsmart) An interesting thought came to me as I recently read...

  • Don't miss God's presence in times of crisis

    birdbath mark timberlake GvZnX8p4HF8 unsplashMy favourite place in my house is in our lounge room looking out of a bay window into our garden. One day, I felt a strange prompt; this garden needs a bird bath. So I purchased a bird bath and placed it in the garden. To my surprise, it wasn’t long before the local birds discovered this newly installed bird bath. News travelled fast. Around dawn and at dusk, a number of birds would appear at our bird bath to splash and enjoy a cool drink...
