Several highly skilled business and faith-based coaches found themselves at odds with the direction of their company in Hong Kong. IXO partnered with Empower Asia to affirm their personal gifts and their approach to coaching young professionals. Empower Asia is not a subsidiary of IXO, nor do we have control of their operation. We have provided fiscal sponsorship for Empower Asia while they were seeking non-profit status in Hong Kong and continue to manage their US donations and Staff. M. of Empower Asia is as much an encouragement to us as we have been to him.
An IXO staff member has had a ministry connection with Cuba for many years. In 2005, he traveled to Cuba on a humanitarian license to help the Deaf after a hurricane and saw first-hand how the church of Cuba had survived and flourished during the previous forty years. After the trip, he had difficulty returning to Cuba but stayed in contact with various friends and ministries until 2019 when IXO was asked to re-engage in assisting one particular church training group in Cuba. While IXO does not run or direct any aspect of their growing enterprise, we help make the system work from this end so they can do what they do best.
