  • An Olympic Thank-You from Joe and Silk

    remembering the persecuted

    Hello Everyone!

    We want to thank you for your participation and support for our work in Japan.

    As you probably know, all the work with the Olympics that we tried to do didn't happen. However, the last few weeks, God has done some amazing things, and that's still ongoing. People are praying. We're signing up people for a million hours of prayer! Can you believe that?

  • Important health updates from Takeshi and Dorrie

    Takeshi & Dorrie TakazawaWatch Joe's interview with the Takazawas

    Yesterday, we posted a video clip from Takeshi Takazawa (Takeshi talks Crisis, Danger, and Opportunity) in 2016 where he shares about the two Chinese characters for "crisis" which are made up of "danger" and "opportunity". He was applying it to the Great Japan Disaster (3.11.11). He reminded us...

    Takeshi Takazawa is VP for Strategic Engagement for Asian Access. He is a gifted leader who has served our movement since 1988. Among his many strengths, he sees things well before others see them and he helps us understand deep things. The A2 Community all across Asia dearly loves Takeshi. In this clip, Takeshi shares about the two Chinese characters for "crisis" which are made up of "danger" and "opportunity". This topic has been referenced quite a bit recently because of COVID-19. "You've probably heard this," Takazawa starts out...

  • Japan: Online church, first A2/Japan webinar, and more

    hari joshua 2017 headshotCreativity started before COVID-19 now deepening in Japan

    God is clearly doing something new these days… While we mourn the deep losses of people and our sense of community living in isolation, there are signs of promise. We hope a solution comes soon for the coronavirus but during this season, something fresh is stirring. This video interview with my colleagues Joshua Hari and Jeffery Sonnenberg highlights some of what God is doing. In fact, as Joshua shares, it seems that God was preparing things in advance as well as setting the stage for fulfilling our longer-term vision for Japan. Watch and see what God is doing…

  • Joe looks back on some 2016 milestones [video]

    Happy New Year's Greetings, Dear Friends!

    What an exciting year it's been for us at Asian Access! We have so much to celebrate. We have many milestones that we've hit this past year in 2016, and I just want to share a few of them, even though there are many, many more. First and foremost for my family and me is that we got to move to Japan. We've been based in L.A. for the past eight years, but this year we moved to Japan to lead the ministry, and what a thrill it is. It couldn't be a more exciting season to be in the country of Japan. Reports are coming out five years after the triple disaster. National leaders are saying that they are having response rates to Christ more than three times normal in the disaster area. One network alone has seen responses to Christ...

  • Documentary redefines access to Asia in missions framework

    A2 DVDSharing vision and hope for evangelism in Asia

    Asia (MNN) ― Asia is the world's largest and most-populous continent. Buddhism, Hinduism and a host of other religions compete for dominance, and most of the world's unreached live in Asia. Conflicting worldviews have led to a spiritual dissonance in many of these countries, which leaves millions open to the truth of Christ. So, who will take the Gospel to Asia? That question is answered in a documentary entitled, MISSIONS:REDEFINED. Craig Detweiler directed the documentary for Asian Access. "For those who want to see for themselves what it is like in Sri Lanka, Asian Access has prepared a documentary. It shows you what's going on in Mongolia, in Japan, and in Sri Lanka." The 35-minute documentary details a part of Detweiler's own journey as he returns to Japan 20 years after he was there as a missionary with Asian Access. Although aimed at missions professors, the purpose of MISSIONS:REDEFINED is to open eyes toward the difference the Gospel makes in Asia. The documentary also reveals A2's commitment to developing church leaders who can reproduce new leaders and build or plant churches...
