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.

Project Portfolio

Bridge Consultation

EMI was asked by a local pastor and his supporters to assist them in getting a bridge built over the river that cuts off their village from road access during the rainy season.  Originally planned by the Nepal government, the bridge was several years behind the front of the line for funding and construction.  The projects supporters decided to raise money for the construction of the bridge privately, but needed the cost to be significantly reduced.  EMI reviewed the design of the bridge and made value engineering suggestions to bring the design in line with their budget target while still being a robust and well-designed solution to their monsoon season transportation needs.  The suggestions were well received by the government, it was redesigned and moved quickly into construction once the funds were in hand.

EMI's rendering of the bridge enabled funders to see envision what the completed bridge would look like.
