The leadership team from left to right: Jeff Johnston, Elliott Snuggs, Doug Birdsall, myself, Peter Thomson, Ned Kiser and Takeshi Takazawa
...One of the things that is so good about this team is that not only do we get a lot done, but we really enjoy working and being together. There is a great chemistry fostered by mutual respect, appreciating each others strengths and willingness to listen and learn from each other.
...Unfortunately this was the last leadership team meeting for our president, Doug Birdsall, as he will be leaving the president role of Asian Access September 30 to focus his full attention on leading the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelism.
...We had a bitter sweet time of expressing our appreciation to Doug and praying for him.
