From the President


A3 is moving to a new donor platform called Virtuous! Our existing donor platform has been shut down for a few days to prepare for the new platform launching on Monday, March 27, 2023. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

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 have been processed through our existing donation platform.
  2. Our online giving portal will be taken down on March 21, 2023, and restored on March 27, 2023 with new capabilities, including an optional account to view/manage gifts online.


Certain donors will be impacted immediately. If you are in the impacted group that is migrating in April, you should receive 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, . . .

  1. March gifts will be processed as usual under our old platform but then will come to an end.
  2. After the online giving portal is restored on 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.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience. We value your data and have determined it is more secure not to transfer your banking or 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!

“Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you and you shall glorify me.”
— Isaiah 50:15

Many Challenges for Pastors

In a Zoom conversation two weeks ago with our National Director, I learned that there have been many challenges for the pastors in the last couple of years. With COVID government shutdowns, the authorities have found it increasingly easier to close off and prohibit church meetings that they consider illegal. Many of the people in our group are finding it a lot more work to keep their flocks fed, and together. In addition, many of the pastors are bi-vocational, and it is increasingly difficult for them to provide a living for their families in the weakened economy. A number of them are under serious economic distress. Even the Director is feeling the bite.

In my meditations today I came across this passage in Isaiah: “Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you and you shall glorify me” Isa. 50:15. 

Pastors Need Our Prayers

It seems to me right to ask all of you to pray with me for these pastors and their families in the spirit of this verse. Let us ask our God to make his delivering grace palpable and personal to these leaders at this time.

I often tell participants that during our training week you, our friends, are praying for them. And, from their reactions, it is obvious that just the thought of this prayerful engagement by Global Christians is a jolt of encouragement for them.

Thank you for walking beside us during these days of duress. These stories aptly represent the sentiment of many of the countries we serve. Just this week, Silk and I hosted a family where the father was put in jail for his work and had his life threatened. These are often the lives that our colleagues and partners live.

Several weeks ago, one of our National Directors was summoned to his capital city. They were told to move their whole family to a location where they could be watched and asked to stop all ministry.

These scenarios are real. And, our friends in these places could use our prayers. Please lift them up: “Call upon me in the day of trouble… I will deliver you.”

Join Silk and me in praying for these servants of Jesus.

With Christ,
