Vision and Plans for 2015
As EMI looks to the future, our vision of designing a world of hope has key elements of design, discipleship, and diversity, centered around Jesus. Our West Africa team will be talking more about our specific Senegal office vision and strategy in the coming weeks and months.
Personally, I'll be staying in France through the beginning of May. The additional time this year to focus on French has already been extremely beneficial for my speaking and fluidity. Praise the Lord!
From mid-May through July, I'll spend some time in Colorado (and possibly a few other states) to connect with as many of you as possible. In late May/early June, I will likely be co-leading another hospital assessment project with Mercy Ships in Madagascar.
Then I plan to attend a culture and language training program during the month of August near Colorado Springs. In September, I'm expecting to move to Senegal with a brief stop in France! My work will begin in Senegal as a learner (along with office preparations and project development). I may also have opportunity to work a bit in Ghana as we explore how to start a local chapter of EMI there.
