As we approach the festival of Pentecost, ALS takes a moment to step back and praise God for the work He has done throughout the Church in all of Asia. By God’s grace ALS works to raise up leaders for the church across 15 countries and regions and even more people groups. The same message that reached such a diverse group at Pentecost continues to go out and transcend so many barriers to bring grace to people in Asia and throughout the world....

It takes courage to speak the Word of God. The apostle Paul knew this from experience. Once, in a city called Lystra, his audience pummeled him with stones and left him for dead. He was flogged and imprisoned in Philippi, chased out of Thessalonica and Berea, and sneered at in Athens....
