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 are now in place to monitor COVID developments, inform, and care for EMI personnel. All official EMI travel (including project travel) has been cancelled or postponed and no new travel plans are being prepared until further notice. EMI’s worldwide offices are in varying states of closure with personnel working remotely or from home as they are able.

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 an opportunity to live out the gospel and our faith in Jesus through the ministry of EMI.

Profession: 
Mechanical Engineer & Photographer
Joined EMI: 
2014

I enjoyed over 20 years of mechanical engineering in Florida with a large consulting firm before entering a 'halftime' in life and career. Both Jenni and I felt God was calling us to use our talents and passions in ways that could more directly serve God's Kingdom, especially in the developing world.

We were thrilled to find that EMI could not only use me as a project leader, but that Jenni's photography skills would meet an equally significant need. She says, ‘Though I never pursued photojournalism, God knew the desire of my heart and gave me this way to serve.’

We are incredibly grateful to be able to serve God and His people together through EMI.
