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.

ASAP to mid-January 2021

If you have some time around the holidays and would like to volunteer remotely to help our staff team with the structural design of a house made of compressed earth blocks (CEB), continue reading below!

Project Scope

The Tirado family serves in rural Cambodia with Adventist Frontier Missions. They have asked EMI to design them a home with alternative materials - potentially compressed earth block (CEB). Work directly from home with EMI Cambodia staff to help get the details of this house complete. The picture above is of the conceptual design by EMI Cambodia's staff architects.
