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.

Last two weeks of September

Reconnecting with a long-term partner, it is EMI's deep honor to once again come alongside Soddo Christian Hospital to revisit their campus master plan and visioneer with them for new facilities on a recently conveyed site adjacent to the campus.

Project Scope

We are thrilled to once again travel as a project team! 

It is our privilege to continue a long-standing partnership with Soddo Hospital in southern Ethiopia. We are excited about the Hospital’s strategic vision to see God glorified as people are healed, saved, equipped, and sent. Soddo plays a key role in reaching the lost in Ethiopia, by providing compassionate, professional medical care to all in need and training new surgeons through the internationally accredited PAACS program. Due to continued growth of services and new land conveyed to the Hospital, there is a need to expand the existing facilities and infrastructure supporting the hospital campus. We look forward to investigating the overall campus masterplan, including the new adjacent area, and initiating design for additional program functions and utilities.

We are looking to mobilize a team of EMI staff and several volunteers to Ethiopia in the last two weeks of September. Will you prayerfully consider joining us in designing a world of hope for Soddo Christian Hospital?
