The major reason we came home this summer was to attend missionary training in Charlotte, North Carolina.

At one of our church events, someone asked, “do you guys do everything in partnernships?” I realized that YES- everything; ministry, marriage, parenting, language learning is done in partnerships. Our sending mission agency is no different. Asian Access has formed a partnership with SIM to send missionaries to Japan.SIM is a mission agency, with over 100 years of training and sending missionaries around the globe. In fact, SIM is at the front lines of the recent Ebola response team in West Africa. While we were there in June, the first prayer request emerged for their medical missions team.
In N.Carolina we received a warm welcome from Faith (center) & Stan DeLa Cour (not pictured). The DeLa Cours are family friends and former long-time missionaries with A2. Faith now heads missionary care for all SIM-USA.
