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.

Ministry Experience

Daniel grew up in East Africa. His father worked as an engineer helping missionaries and churches in remote locations with their housing, water, and electrical needs.  After graduating from University, Daniel worked 3 years for a relief organization designing and overseeing construction of schools and churches in northern Uganda and southern Sudan.  He then moved to Minnesota for almost 9 years and worked for a company specializing in custom process equipment.  In 2016 Daniel joined EMI's Uganda office to help start the Research and Development program.


Daniel and Jen met while both working in southern Sudan.  Jen was teaching pastors' wives and local school children in the same area Daniel was working.  They married in 2008 after moving back the USA.  Their family has grown to include two daughters (2011, 2013) and one son (2015).
