Meeting with Contractors in Cambodia

Collaboration in Cambodia

In April, one volunteer and I traveled to Cambodia for the design of an agricultural water supply system. We worked with Asian Outreach Cambodia (AOC) and Neverthirst to enable agricultural training in the northern part of the country near Laos. After collaborating in-country with AOC and Cambodian contractors, the water supply project is funded and currently under construction. Praise God for opportunities to hear the amazing testimony of AOC's president Romanea Thong and to attend one of Neverthirst's community well dedications!

EMI Tanzania Team

Designing Hope in Tanzania

In June, I led a team to serve Hope of the Nations, a ministry in western Tanzania (Kigoma). Hope of the Nations asked EMI for assistance with a primary school campus survey and master plan. Praise God for an incredible design team representing Tanzania, Australia, Taiwan, and the United States! We surveyed the new land, listened to students and staff describe (and even draw) their ideal school, shared Bible stories with the primary students in the mornings, and had blessed times of fellowship as a team and with the local church.

John with Jane's dad

Remembering Jane's Father

In May, I traveled to Nigeria to spend some time with Jane and her family after her father Matthew passed away. We enjoyed sweet fellowship, worship, and fun throughout my stay. Yet, we dearly miss Mr. Matthew, who had been a great father to his children as he followed Christ. The Lord reminded me of His goodness, even in the pain of loss, and Psalm 34 continues to be my prayer for Jane's mother, brother, and two young sisters. May they taste and see the Lord's goodness as they take refuge in and fear Him. He is faithful to answer, deliver, hear, save, stay near, fill, and redeem. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together!

Upcoming Plans

Freetown, Sierra Leone
Next month, I plan to lead a team to the outskirts of Freetown to design a trade school with housing for Rebuild Sierra Leone, the vision of friend Daniel Sesay and co-founder Abu Bangura. Please pray that God brings the team of designers to travel, survey, and design a master plan for Rebuild Sierra Leone. Learn more about this project on EMI's website.
Paris, France
In January, I plan to learn French at a school in Massy, a suberb of Paris, for a duration of 6 to 12 months. This is a first step out of the country as EMI prepares to launch an office in West Africa, where the majority of countries use French as their official language. I will share more about this relocation for language learning in my next update.
Yaoundé, Cameroon
The Bangui Evangelical School of Theology is in the process of relocating from Central African Republic (RCA) to Cameroon due to continued instability in RCA. There is potential for future design projects and construction management that EMI would likely be involved with. I may move to Cameroon after French school to assist with design and construction of the new university campus that we originally master planned for Bangui.

East Asia Visit

In July, I visited a business and foster home in China with a team from Freedom Church in Colorado Springs. We spent time with children in the home, taught at English summer camps, moved furniture and painted, assisted with website design, and ministered to staff and interns. Praise God for the ways we were able to serve and invest in His kingdom!
