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.

2016

God has chosen to work in me through constant tugging and gentle steering. He put questions in my mind like, “Why doesn’t architecture give me more fulfilment?” or “How can I serve God outside of church?” Reaching dead ends trying to figure them out on my own, God helped me answer those questions by giving clues through people and situations. These experiences acted as stepping-stones leading me to join EMI.

EMI has been a space to grow both spiritually and professionally. This year will push me to grow even more as I spend time serving EMI in Senegal. Along with differences in culture and language, this opportunity brings the challenge to design in a new context. It is exciting to work with other members of the EMI family as we learn from each other, and to see how Christ is being brought to the communities of West Africa.
