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.

Garden Home Orphan's Hope

Garden Home Orphanage in Myanmar is part of Orphan’s Hope ministry. Despite the challenges in Myanmar, Orphan’s Hope extends their compassionate hand in many ways to the unfortunate orphans in that country. The Garden Home Orphanage has been praised by the government as an exemplar. Located on a beautiful peninsula on a river with many vegetable gardens and fruit trees, the operation has a unique vision to make itself self-sustaining.  The Garden Home orphanage is dedicated to double orphans who have lost both their father and mother and have no place to go.

An EMI team visited the ministry in Myanmar in October 2009 to survey and investigate the site, evaluate the needs of the ministry, and to propose a master-plan to expand the campus. In the conclusion of EMI’s report a geo-technical evaluation, a design rationale for the overall site master plan and the agricultural zoning plan, a section on sustainable agriculture development, and the design rationale (architectural, structural, electrical) for the orphan houses, the education building, a multi-purpose building and a remodeled kitchen/dining hall were provided.
