At eMi, the focus of our work is to help ministries move effectively and efficiently from their God-given vision to God-given impact. I believe that we have the unique opportunity to act as a bridge between the two.
As any engineer will tell you, any bridge that isn't properly supported is useless (even worse - it's dangerous). At eMi, our financial partners help fill this need for support. We would be ineffective without them. We recognize that God provides the materials for this bridge and its supports, but it's up to all of us to use them as He directs us to.
Liz and I have been following God's call for us to join eMi since 2012. We are continuing to establish our support. In September, we began our 100% in 100 Days campaign. As of day 72, we are at 78%. While we have missed our preliminary goal of 90% by December 1, we are still praying and hoping to reach 100% by January 1.
For all who receive our newsletter, I thank you for your support and encouragement, and I pray that you'll continue to consider what role God has called you to in this ministry.
Our ministry continues to be focussed on making a difference for the Kingdom of God. To do so to the full extent that God is calling us to, I need to be at eMi on a full-time basis. Three important ways you can help support us are:
1. Introducing us to new people or companies who may be interested in supporting us
2. Committing to support us financially (if you don't already), continuing to (if you already do) or increasing your current support if you feel led to. You can find a "Donate Now!" button at the bottom of this email, or see our staff page. [Note: Since eMi Canada is a registered charity, tax receipts are issued to financial supporters]
3. Praying intently and intentionally
God has given us all the ability to help build His kingdom, each in a unique way. I believe we can do that through Engineering Ministries International. I hope and pray you'll join us. If you already have - thank you. You are making a difference for the kingdom already.
"We seek Your kingdom first. We hunger and we thirst.
Refuse to waste our lives for You're our joy and prize.
To see the captive hearts released. The hurt, the sick, the poor at peace.
We lay down our lives for Heaven's cause."

A main area of focus for Ratanak is working to end sexual exploitation in Cambodia. To become more effective, they are setting up a ministry centre as a "home base" for their in-country operations. The ministry centre will also host their RAP (Ratanak Achievement Program), which is a reintegration home for older girls exiting prostitution seeking to reintegrate back into society with education, job skills and life skills leading to independent and stable lives.
We're excited to partner with Ratanak on this project. Please pray for safety, wisdom and God's guidance as we seek to help Ratanak transform their vision into impact.
As always, thank you for all of your prayers and support. God continues to use eMi Canada to make a difference for His kingdom in amazing ways.
