Muhling, Kent & Yuko
Recurring Donor Info


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.


  1. Online donations through March 20, 2023 were processed through our previous donation platform before being taken offline March 21.
  2. Our new online giving portal is being relaunched the week of March 27-31, 2023 with new capabilities, including an optional account to view/manage gifts online.
  3. We have begun rolling out new donation forms for PROJECTS & MISSIONARIES which work well on computers, but not on mobile devices yet. We will continue to rollout more features in the coming days.


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.

  1. March gifts were processed as usual under our old platform but then will came to an end.
  2. After the online giving portal is restored the week of March 27, 2023, donors who would like to continue their automated donations will need to login to the new giving portal and set up their recurring donation(s) on the new platform. You can do this starting in April to ensure no gap in your recurring donation.

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!

Serving as Missional Partners

Bio: Kent & Yuko Muhling

Background Info

Kent is a former Naval Flight Officer who felt the call to the ministry while still in uniform. He resigned his commission in 1996, spent a year and a half in Ukraine as a lay missionary, then returned to Orlando, FL to pursue a Master of Divinity degree at Reformed Theological Seminary. There he met his wife Yuko, a native of Japan, who was studying for her Master of Arts in Counseling. They both graduated in 2001 and are eager to serve the Lord in ministry.

Ministry Assignment

Serving with A3 since 2003:

  • As Career Missionaries
    • Tohoku, Japan, 2012-present
  • as Church Planting Associates:
    • Term 2: Osaka, Japan, 2010-2014
    • Home Assignment: Jacksonville, FL - 2009
    • Term 1: Chiba/Tokyo, Japan- 2006-2009
  • Pre-Field Deputation: 2003-2006

Words of wisdom...

  • Pray. Ask God to reveal your heart. For what reasons would you, or would you not, pursue full-time missionary service?
  • Ask other mature believers in your life if they sense this is the direction God might be leading you.
  • Then, absolutely, read Let the Nations Be Glad! by John Piper – the most passion-inspiring, God-glorifying book on missions I’ve yet read.

When you're in Japan, be sure to...

Visit Kyoto, with its numerous temples, shrines, gardens, and other monuments to traditional Japanese culture. It is a beautiful place!

Hoping for "ultimate contributions"...

I'd like to help establish a worldwide prayer movement for Japan that would break through spiritual barriers and see masses of Japanese embrace the gospel of Christ. (This has begun to happen in the Middle East, as a result of the worldwide prayer movement for the 10/40 Window begun about 10 years ago.) 

Meaningful methods...

Both of us really want our home to be a place where ministry takes place -- home Bible studies and fellowship groups, an open door for those who are hurting or seeking answers to spiritual questions, etc. We’re drawn to the picture of the early church in the New Testament, which often met in homes. 

Hopes for the future...

I (Kent) hope to be a good student of Japanese language and culture, so that I might be able to truly understand the minds and hearts of those I am trying to reach with the gospel – and so that I might better understand what following Christ looks and feels like to my Japanese brothers and sisters. Yuko hopes to get certified as a translator so she can help in translating Christian literature (especially in the area of counseling) into Japanese.

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost,”
­— J.R.R. Tolkien

From my very first chapter book I have been a re-reader of stories. My mom read Sterling North’s Rascal (funnily enough, a popular anime in Japan) to my little brother and me when I was in the first or second grade. When she finished the book, I loved it so much that I immediately wanted to go back into the story and experience it by myself. I have been voraciously re-reading ever since. Each story is as comforting as getting coffee with a dear friend.

My Tribute to Robert Fuhriman

Blessed to Be in Community with Bob

Bob & Beth Fuhriman served as missionaries with Cru in Japan starting in 1968. In 1981, they switched to A3 (then, LIFE Ministries). I met them in 1987 as an A3 short-termer living in Tokyo. I remember carefully watching several of these long-term missionaries to see if I could possibly become one, as well as if these were the people whose community I wanted to join.

"We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps."
— Proverbs 16:9 (NLT)

In our hearts, we were confident that God was calling us to serve him in Japan. But we couldn’t do it without a significant team of supporters behind us with faithful prayers and financial gifts. It was hard to imagine how he would do it. It was 2016. Josh and I hoped to be in Japan within a year, but God had other plans.

Reflections on 10th Anniversary of Japan’s Triple Disaster

By Kent Muhling

As the ten-year commemoration of the March 11 disaster approaches, many of us think back to our experience of that day and the days that followed. I am reminded of some of the lessons I learned then, lessons that continue to shape our ministry today.

Why A2?

Why are we serving with Asian Access?

We're serving with Asian Access because they are on the cutting edge of leadership development and partnership in ministry. We love their vision and philosophy of ministry. We love that Asian Access partners with many different Japanese denominations. Though we are from the Reformed tradition theologically, we want to minister in a broader context, to cross denominational barriers, and to place a high value on the unity of the Body of Christ, even though we might disagree on some doctrinal issues with others.
