A3 has moved to a new donor platform called Virtuous! Our existing donor platform was shut down for a week to prepare for the new platform launching the week of March 27-31, 2023. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused you.
Existing donor information will be transferred. However, for security reasons, banking and credit card data will not be brought over. Therefore, if you have a recurring donation to A3 (via direct debit or credit card), you will need to re-establish your recurring donation on the Virtuous platform starting in April 2023.
Certain donors will be impacted immediately. If you are in the impacted group that is migrating in April, you should have received an email on March 21, 2023 and a hard copy letter a few days later with additional action steps. If you did get this communication, . . .
Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience. We value your data and have determined it was more secure not to transfer your credit card information during the migration.
Furthermore, we are confident that the new online donation platform will provide a better donor/partner experience compared to our old online platform. In addition, we will save quite a bit by making this switch. Thank you for your understanding. We appreciate your partnership!
Algeria (MNN) — Ramadan started last Wednesday for Muslims around the world. In countries like Algeria where Islam is the state religion, Ramadan is strictly observed. Muslims must fast in the daytime as they seek Allah’s favor. And even non-Muslims during Ramadan are forbidden by law from eating and drinking during the day in public.
On this International Women's Day, we celebrate the voices of these valued members of our A3 Community. We are so fortunate to know and work with these tremendous people and many others like them.
Algeria (MNN) — Persecution escalates in Algeria. Local believers tell Asian Access, or A3, that the government is closing more churches and targeting Christian leaders.
South Asia (MNN) — The Church in South Asia faces increasing pressure from religious majority groups in various countries.
This was the most encouraging Japan National Pastors’ Conference I remember in my 14 years with A3.
The theme as set by Pastor Yoshiya Hari, A3/Japan National Director, was “From 2020 to 2030” and Pastor Shinji Takita’s words captured it best:
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. While GivingTuesday happens every Tuesday, the annual celebration of generosity will happen on November 29, 2022.
Indonesia (MNN) — The desperate search for survivors continues in West Java, Indonesia.
China (MNN) — Persecution in China filled the headlines in recent weeks. Authorities raided several house churches and arrested leaders within China and harassed Chinese believers seeking shelter in Thailand.
Here's what God is doing through A3/Cambodia and alumni...
“Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you and you shall glorify me.”
— Isaiah 50:15
It is Easter week here, and I am in Warsaw, Poland where we've been meeting with leaders representing the Persecuted Church.
