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

AIM Primary School

Over 400 students had been attending schools in rented and repurposed buildings in a community ravaged by the human trafficking industry on the outskirts of Phnom Penh. A new school has been constructed that is a part of a holistic outreach to the community to help families break the current cycle of poverty that they find themselves in. EMI partnered with international designers and a local contractor to oversee the construction of this nearly 2 yearlong project. Once opened, the school will be able to accommodate 1,000 neighbourhood students who may turn out to be future doctors, political leaders, scientists, and teachers. The community is already being restored through the ongoing work of AIM and the new school will allow this redemptive work to continue to grow to the next generation.
