Important message about the COVID-19 Coronavirus

In an effort to care for all of our personnel, families, and mission around the world, EMI has been taking a number of steps in response to the progress of COVID-19.

Location-specific Crisis Management Teams remain in place to monitor COVID developments, inform, and care for EMI personnel. Decisions about official EMI travel (including project travel) domestically and internationally are being made on a case-by-case basis by Office Directors in locations concerned. EMI’s worldwide offices remain in varying states of closure with personnel working remotely or from home.

We continue to actively monitor the situation and will respond to new information affecting our worldwide ministry and teams. We view the COVID-19 Coronavirus as an opportunity to live out the gospel and our faith in Jesus through the ministry of EMI.

I worked as a water resources engineer in Colorado for four years before joining EMI USA. With a vision to serve long-term in West Africa, I helped pioneer and launch EMI Sénégal—a process which brought me to France for language study.

While there, I met my wife, Céline, who also enjoys travel and culture and has a heart to serve the Body of Christ. We currently live in France and work remotely with the Sénégal team, while making EMI connections around Europe.

It’s a tremendous joy to lead designers from around the world into advancing God’s kingdom through development and water projects. Looking ahead, we are excited about moving back to Sénégal and sharing who God is and how He has worked in our lives.
