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.

Austin Omobhude grew up in Nigeria, and when he became a successful businessman in Canada, he wanted to give back to his home country and home village. He has a vision for a children's home where abandoned babies can grow up in a loving family environment.

Project Scope

Mary’s Home for children will house 50 orphans and other vulnerable children in family-style cottages with house-parents to provide them with a family upbringing. Through partnership with local churches, this ministry envisions a primary and post-primary school on a portion of the property. The land has been secured with a perimeter wall and is ready for master planning as well as building and infrastructure design.

Will you join us in helping to master plan and phase this 1/4 hectare site as we bring vision toward reality for children who need a place to call home?

— John Agee, EMI Canada trip leader
