Asia: Contrasts Are Only the Beginning
Asia is the world’s largest and most populous continent, covering about 30% of Earth’s total land area. Asia is notable for not only its overall size and population but its dense as well as barely populated regions within the continent of 4.4 [?] billion people. Asia has exhibited economic as well as population growth during the 20th century, but overall population growth has since fallen to world average levels. Given its size and diversity, the concept of Asia may actually have more to do with human than physical geography. Asia varies greatly across its regions with regard to ethnic groups, cultures, environments, economics, historical ties and government systems.

NE Asia: Unnamed Missionary
This IOM missionary couple is committed to sustaining a Missions platform by establishing an after-school academy for local students and educating them through their creative English and Robotics program to raise tomorrow’s leaders for His Kingdom by caring, relating, and teaching them with Christ-like love. Additionally, this Business-as-Mission platform serves as a base to equip like-minded young adults to engage in faith and work environment to do life and grow in the Lord together as one body.

More About the NE Asia Mission
Since 2016, through a partnership with a remote farming village, our missionary couple and their team have been providing the raw materials and expertise for approximately 150 farming families to produce enough crops to not only feed the families but to produce tangible, excess yield for potential entrepreneurial uses. All activities involved in this endeavor are to support natural farming techniques and non-commercial needs, directly benefiting the people and to lead them to self-sustainability. Additionally, through a partnership with a small town since 2017, they have been involved in a bread project, which produces and feeds 1,200 children daily. For many, it may be the most nutritious meal of the day.
It is their hope that through these endeavors that they will continue to serve and share the love of God in the place they have been called to. Due to the sensitivity of the situation, the names of this IOM missionary couple, as well as the people group they serve must remain confidential.
