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.

Professional Training & Experience

I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering.  I have done further study in IT and have an MCSE certification with Microsoft.  My experience has been in rural development in Nepal where I worked on drinking water systems (Hydraulic Ram Pumps), food processing equipment, and roofing tiles to replace thatch.  In 1998 I moved into IT consulting with 5 years in Colorado and 15 years in India at Woodstock School and rural schools.  I have experience with IT consulting and IT management in Woodstock School, which is a large school campus, as well as with tablet computer use in rural schools.

Ministry Experience

Professional work and faith experience go hand in hand when working in Asia.  My profession has allowed me to work in engineering settings as well as in education settings while being a member of local faith communities.  Supporting other's faith and learning process has been a key aspect of how I serve as a believer in a professional environment.

Family

My wife Sue and I have 4 children and 5 grandsons who are a real blessing to us.  We have moved to the US recently to be near to 3 of our children's families which is a real blessing but leaving family behind in India has been a challenge.  My childhood was spent in India where my brother and sisters and I grew up.  Our parents worked in hospitals while we attended boarding school.
