  1. What is the antidote to fear?

    How do you handle fear?

    Fear seems to be gripping the world these days. 

    Whether it’s terrorist attacks in Paris, San Bernardino or elsewhere OR the global economy, etc.; everywhere I turn fear seems to be a common emotion, topic or theme. In the world of Asian Access, it appears most frequently in those facing oppression, persecution or simply pressure from their government. 

    Pastor Meng Aun Hour

    What is the antidote to fear?

    My colleague, Meng Aun Hour from Cambodia (pictured here), shared recently from John 20:19-23. Perhaps his insight may help you!

    • When his disciples were full of fear, Jesus came and stood among them (v. 19). Meng suggests that when we have fear, we can recognize Jesus’ presence. He is with us!
    • The first words Jesus shares are “Peace be with you.” In fact, he states this not once, but twice (vv. 19, 21). When we are in fear, Jesus is there to proclaim “Peace”!
    • Third, Jesus gives the disciples purpose: “As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” (v. 21). Once we know Jesus presence and realize his peace, we can focus on our purpose: He has sent us!
    • Then, in verse 22, Jesus gives us his Spirit. He says, “Receive the Holy Spirit” and Meng deftly pointed out that our power comes from the Spirit. As the Father sends us, he also empowers us through his Spirit.
    • Finally, Jesus closes the passage with one of the most powerful actions mankind has ever known: forgiveness. Forgiving others, even those who have wronged us, pressure us, oppress us, and persecute us has immeasurable power. 

    When we walk in God’s presence, accept His peace, follow his mission, receive His Spirit and forgive others, we have an amazing recipe to overcome fear.

    What have you learned from Jesus in this message? What has Meng elicited from this passage that helps or encourages you? How do you overcome fear?

    I’d love to hear from you!

  2. Who are you voting for? Here's what I'm thinking...

    Candidates for U.S. President - 2016

    As I have watched nearly all the debates the past few months and seen the polls go up and down, I’m more and more convinced that Sir Winston Churchill was correct: 

    “The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.”

    Winston Churchill

    What We Look For In A Leader

    This process reminds me of when Israel was looking for a king. They wanted a strong leader, someone who stood out among the rest. They ended up with Saul. You can see how that worked out by reading 1 Samuel 8-16. It’s an example of how, so many times, God acts in ways opposite to our human expectations.

    For example, who among us would have chosen Moses to lead: “I am not eloquent… I am slow of speech and of tongue” (Exodus 4:10)?

    And how about Gideon: “how can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest… and I am the least in my family” (Judges 6:15)?

    Finally, consider Saul’s replacement, shepherd-boy David:

    “Do not consider his appearance or his height… The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7).

    Even Jesus Himself was born in a lowly stable and led a rag-tag group of disciples.  It’s true that by following Christ, a worldwide movement of eternal impact was spawned. But these examples from Scripture illustrate that what God looks for in a leader is usually quite different than what we look for.

    I don’t know about you, but I’m looking for a shepherd to rise as I look to vote this year!

    A key strategic focus at Asian Access is identifying leaders who will shepherd the people God has entrusted to their leadership. We believe it's an incredibly strategic task to identify kingdom leaders who will shape their families, churches, communities and countries. And we're actually seeing that happen!

     

    What about you?

    What qualities are you looking for in your leaders? More pointedly, who are you investing in? Look around you—who are the emerging kingdom leaders who you can influence and encourage? Hopefully they will help to shape their nation . . . and, who knows, just maybe one of them will be the next president!

  3. Asian Access envisions new chapter for Japan

    envisioning new chapter for japan splash

    Japan (MNN) — It’s not easy reaching the Japanese for Christ. According to Asian Access, Japan has some of the toughest spiritual ground around.

    Asian Access envisions new chapter for JapanBut, that was before the triple disaster of 2011. Now, hearts have been softened.

    Many Japanese are ready to hear the Good News of Jesus. In order to reach them, Asian Access is investing over $500,000 in planting churches and training pastors.

    “Join me in praising God and praying for the harvest, that many might come to know Jesus as their Savior in Japan!” said Asian Access President Joe Handley in a recent blog post.

     

    Where’d all that money come from?

    By most standards, a half-million dollars is a lot of money. It’s an especially-large sum in the world of nonprofit and charity organizations. For the Lord, though, it’s a drop in the bucket.

    It all started in November, when He moved on the heart of Dan Amos, CEO of Aflac Insurance.

    japan-giving-challenge“I have been a strong supporter of Asian Access for over 15 years…. I have full confidence in their president, Joe Handley, their board, and the mission that they oversee,” wrote Amos in a note to Handley.

    “That is why I’m proud to offer this $250,000 matching challenge to help reach Japan for Christ.”

    God continued moving in the hearts of Asian Access supporters, and by the last month of 2015 they were near the finish line of their giving challenge. When the clock struck midnight on December 31, the year and Asian Access’s giving challenge came to an end.

    The gifts kept coming, though. “It took a few weeks to gather all the data, due to online giving and some last-minute checks in the mail,” Handley shared.

    “A total of $253,749 has been received, and so now we have $553,749 to invest toward developing leaders and planting churches in Japan.”

     

    What will Asian Access use the money for?

    (Photo courtesy Asian Access)As explained here, the $250,000 giving challenge was intended to further church multiplication efforts in Japan.

    “What seemed impossible in 1986 has exploded into a vision for so much more. There is significant synergy now,” said Handley.

    “More churches have been planted, more quickly, than we ever could have imagined…we now have pastors in Japan dreaming of planting 50,000 churches by 2035!”

    Building on the spiritual “breakthroughs” initiated by the mayhem of 2011, Asian Access and the leaders they’ve trained want to push toward new milestones:

    • Plant 50,000 churches by 2035
    • Reach Japanese businesspeople for Christ
    • Reach entire families for Christ through marriage training and Alpha course
    • Create mobile-based multimedia resources to facilitate/enhance leadership development
    • Engage Japan and the world with the love and message of Christ at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo

    As you praise the Lord for bringing about the finances needed to launch this project, please continue to pray for Asian Access and the people of Japan.

    Pray for the continual softening of hearts by the Holy Spirit. Pray that through Asian Access, many leaders will be trained and able to share the Gospel effectively when opportunity arises.

  5. Leadership: an underlying need in today’s chaos

    Leadership: an underlying need in today’s chaosInternational (MNN) — War is a constant in today’s global headlines: ISIS war comes to Jakarta; starvation an active war crime in Syria; prisoner of war protections don’t apply in Iran.

    Joe Handley of Asian Access says there’s a common thread: “In the midst of that situation, everyone is looking for leadership.”

    Earlier this month, The Asia Foundation outlined “highs and lows” Asian nations faced in 2015, as well as expected challenges:

    • National security in Afghanistan and Pakistan
    • Political and governmental changes/transitions in Cambodia, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Timor-Leste, and Vietnam
    • Economic changes/downturn in Afghanistan, China, India, South Korea, Laos, Malaysia, and Mongolia

    In Asia and throughout the world, Handley says current events can mostly be described by a familiar business and military acronym: VUCA. VUCA stands for Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity.

    “When we look at the spiritual landscape of what’s happening in Asia today,” Handley notes, “in all the volatility, people are hungry for something that will help them in their lives.”

    Growing leadership in Asia

    (Photo courtesy Asian Access)Leadership plays a critical role in calming frayed nerves, both in spiritual circles and other social strata. “Typically, we as people run to those types of leaders that look like King Saul: he looks like a strong leader; he’s someone that would make a ‘game-changing’ difference,” observes Handley.

    “And yet, God looks in a completely different direction: He looks for a shepherd boy.”

    In biblical times, as well as today, shepherds have little-to-no social significance. But, their skills of humble and gentle leadership are what Asian Access looks to replicate.

    The ministry wants to come alongside “some unknown person that can really rise up as a shepherd-type leader, an upside-down kind of leader, a leader that the world might not fully recognize at first, but the kind of person who has a heart after God.”

    Learn more about what Asian Access does here.

    (Photo courtesy Asian Access)From Japan in the east to Turkey in the west, from Mongolia in the north to Indonesia in the south, Asian Access equips and empowers leaders great and small to fulfill the Great Commission.

    “It’s not just making disciples, but it’s making disciples of all nations. We focus on church planting for pastors, and for CEOs and businessmen to be missional change agents in what they do.”

    Seeking shepherd-style leadership

    Asian Access is currently working in 11 nations and hopes to expand its reach in 2016.

    “We have five countries that are inviting us to come in, and we’re hoping to open two more this year,” Handley shares. “That will only happen with your prayer support, as you come alongside and pray for what God is doing in this volatile region of the world.

    (Photo courtesy Reza Vaziri via Flickr)“Pray for these shepherd-like leaders, that they can lead the Church in ways that would be healthy, productive, and fruitful.”

    If you’d like to help Asian Access train potential leaders, click here. “We’re shooting for those unknown shepherd-type leaders like King David, as opposed to the [King] Saul that most of the world looks for.”

    Last but not least, “it costs funds to do this kind of work,” Handley shares. “We need your support to enable and empower [leaders with] these qualities.”

  6. 'We need your voice' the call for women in leadership in Asia

    Is there still a glass ceiling when it comes to women in ministry leadership? In the United States, the response may be “it’s being shattered.” Mary Jo Wilson, Vice President for Missional Engagement for Asian Access, believes the response should be the same for women around the world.

    Her own desire to understand how God views women in leadership compelled her to invest time in scripture and prayer. She says that, in a world of mixed messages and traditional values, it can be easier for a women to lead from the back rather than take a more upfront role at the table where key decisions are made in ministry.

    “I think it’s been difficult sometimes to capture those women and to find a place where we can engage them and develop them as leaders because they are in the background and often they’re more comfortable in the background.”

    Mary Jo’s personal investment resulted in a white paper on women in leadership.

    “As I studied and prayed, the point of my paper was women and men serving together and how we can come together in the body of Christ and be all about the mission – not separating and not limiting anyone to serve and be about the Great Commission.”

    Asia Woman United Nations CCHer studies are now being used by Asian Access to develop better methods to engage women in their servant leadership ministry. Mary Jo believes that men must be key partners in change for women in Asia. She shares, “Some of it is engaging men to talk about how we’re going to do this so it’s not just women saying ‘we need more voice,’ but men saying ‘we need your voice’ and discussing together how we can go about that. “

    Mary Jo and the team at Asian Access see women in leadership as pivotal in the countries in which they serve. “I think the Gospel speaks to us and – if we’re really experiencing the God – says that we should be saying that NO ONE is less. If we’re reading the Gospels and Christ’s interaction, He is about the oppressed and the vulnerable and certainly women would fall into that category, so I believe the Gospel is what compels us to bring women in and to say, “You’re not less and you are co-image-bearers.” And when God created us, He created us together, and together we express His image in the world.”

  8. 2015 Endorsements: What They're Saying About Asian Access

    2015 Highlights: Endorsements of Asian Access

    Here are some things people are saying about Asian Access this year...

     

    Dr. Lon AllisonDr. Lon Allison
    Pastor of Teaching & Outreach, Wheaton Bible Church

    "I know the goals; I know the mission of Asian Access. I know what they're about. I support that with all my heart. But what I'm really excited about is the dedication and the point like focus on that it all emanates out of a love for God and a life with God."

    Rev. Edmund Chan

    Rev. Edmund Chan
    Leadership Mentor and Former Founder, Covenant Evangelical Free Church, Singapore
    Founder of the Global Alliance of Disciple-Making Churches

    "I believe that the test of leadership is found in the third generation. It involves mentoring leaders who would reproduce leaders. This is why I thank God for Asian Access! It is an outstanding movement that's strategically committed to sustainable leadership development! Mentoring leaders. Multiplying disciples. YES!!!”

    Dr. Greg WaybrightDr. Greg Waybright
    Senior Pastor, Lake Avenue Church, Pasadena, CA
    Asian Access Board of Directors

    "Asian Access is one of the most effective ministry organizations in facilitating genuine respect-filled partnerships across cultures to further our Father’s global mission. I have witnessed how A2 has drawn together the experience and formal training of Jesus-followers in one culture with the spiritual vitality and ministry innovation of those in another culture in which the church is experiencing rapid growth to do remarkable things to His glory.
               I believe God has raised up A2 to play a rather unique role in God’s promise to establish a people made up of every people group, language and nation to “with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ" (cf., Rev. 7:9; Rom 15:6).
               I recommend Asian Access as a gospel-centered, biblically directed, cost-effective global ministry partner."

    ram-gidoomalMr. Ram Gidoomal
    Exec. Pastor for International Ministry
    Chairman of the Board, Lausanne Movement

    "There's a desperate need today for business leaders to become Christ-like transformational leaders. That's where A2's marketplace training fills a strategic niche. A2.business is building on a proven track record in empowering leaders for over 35 years. Now they are investing in business leaders who want to transform their communities and nations."

    Rev. Adrian De VisserRev. Adrian De Visser
    Founder,Kithu Sevana - Sri Lanka

    "Many groups over the years have wanted to partner with us. The reason we serve with Asian Access is because they know the value of mutuality. Ministry isn't one-sided for them—from West to the Rest. Rather, it is a true partnership where the best from the West is connected with the best from the East in dynamic collaborative community. Asian Access truly models this form of servant leadership."

    Mr. Takeshi Takazawa

    Mr. Takeshi Takazawa
    National Director, Asian Access / Japan

    "Asian Access is coming alongside leaders to accomplish what God has called them to do in the way God has called them to do it. This is why I have been involved in this ministry for decades. Asian Access is not called to transfer knowledge, but to create learning communities. This is what gets me excited. I am convinced that true partnership always takes place in authentic community. Asian Access is committed to this type of community within and across cultures."

  9. Bangladesh: pastors receiving Islamist death threats

    imageBangladesh (A2/MNN) — The U.S. Department of State warns that travel to Bangladesh is especially dangerous right now.

    The alert notes, “There is reliable information to suggest that terrorist attacks could occur against foreigners in Bangladesh, including against large gatherings of foreigners.”

    Additionally, groups like Barnabus Fund, Open Doors USA, and the Voice of the Martyrs USA have observed a dramatic surge in the persecution of Christians and Hindus, instigated by Islamic extremists. Noel Becchetti with Asian Access says, “Leaders in both of these areas are getting texts saying, ‘Make sure you eat your favorite foods over the next few days because we’re going to kill you in five days,’ or ‘Plan your funeral because you’re going to be dead in three days.’”

    imageIt’s disconcerting, Becchetti explains, because “Bangladesh, historically, has always been known for its tolerance. This is really a new phenomenon. Some people think it’s just folks have seen what ISIS is doing, and to some degree, you don’t have to sign up. Anybody can just say, ‘Well, we can do that, too.’”

    But are these extremists actually members of ISIS? Not necessarily, says Becchetti. “It’s almost like there are ISIS wanna-be’s out there now. In other words, you’ve got this ISIS phenomenon in Syria and Iraq. Everybody can see what they’re doing, including other disaffected folks in other parts of the world.”

    Part of the push-back could also be connected to the fast growth of the Church. Growth means Gospel. Gospel means change. There are just some people who don’t like the direction of that change. In terms of protecting Christians, “The government is aware. The government is not happy about it [the threat].”

    Barnabus Fund further explains who is behind the violence: “Those sending the threats claim they are part of Islamist groups Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) and Islamic State. Their agenda is clear: ‘This country will be ruled only by the [Islamic] Sharia law,’ read the letter sent to [one pastor]. Although Bangladesh is a secular country and its legal system makes it one of the most tolerant Muslim-majority countries in the world, there are Islamist groups lobbying for the Islamisation of the country. The situation has become increasingly volatile in recent months, and Bangladeshi Christians, who make up just 1% of a population that is 90% Muslim, are vulnerable targets.”

    screenshot image courtesy of Mission Network NewsThese have not been idle threats, says Becchetti. “Pastors are being approached by folks saying, ‘Hey! We’re interested to talk about Christianity. We want to know more about Jesus.’ They’ll come into their homes and then they’ll attack them.” In another incident, he shares, “The secretary to one of our leaders, some of her family members…were at home at night, asleep; and somebody broke out one of the windows and started shooting. Three people were shot inside the house, all wounded.”

    However, Bangladeshis are resilient. “People don’t want their lives to stop,” says Becchetti. “It’s trying to juggle not letting the terrorists, in a sense, ‘win’ by paralyzing your whole life.”

    Bangladeshi Christians consider a certain level of persecution to be a normal part of being a Christ-follower. In fact, in this context, there is a lot of genuine interest right now in the Gospel. “Muslim young people are being disaffected on a lot of levels for a lot of reasons in a lot of this part of the world.”

    That’s not to say these church leaders and pastors are not taking precautions. It’s nerve-wracking to be constantly looking over your shoulder, not knowing who to trust. “Part of their challenge is being able to discern between the students who are genuinely interested and then students who are actually infiltrators…pretending to be interested so they can infiltrate these groups.”

    A2 is asking believers to pray for Bangladesh’s Church. “They can feel somewhat isolated, so when they know that believers all over the world are trying to stay aware [and] are praying, that means a lot. It really does.”

    There are more ways to help here.

    Thank you for standing with and continuing to pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ across Asia. This phenomenon is occurring not only in Bangladesh, but also in many places across Asia.

    Let us persevere in prayer.

    What Generosity Can Do: An Example of a Buddhist Monk

As I was serving, I was visiting an impoverished village where some of my colleagues had reached out following a devastating natural disaster. They went into the community, served the people, and rebuilt hundreds of homes that had been lost. I was visiting trainer centers that had been built to equip the people and educate the children.
