Investing wisely
On a blustery afternoon, EMM worker Bethany Tobin, who is also jointly appointed with Virginia Mennonite Missions, grabbed an umbrella as protection from the sun and slid on her flip flops. Leaving her boisterous home-schoolers with her husband, Steve, she walked around the corner to her neighbor’s house.

Partners in God's mission
Despite the interruptions, the changes in our plans, and the disappointments of unfulfilled expectations, the mission of God goes on. EMM workers continue to cross cultures, engage the world, and make disciples of Jesus.

A range of human resilience
Lucy has been amazed at the range of human resilience she has seen from her perch on the balcony. It is amazing how God has made humans to be able deal with life's circumstances. People have been creative with entertainment, their spaces, and their resources. They can find community when they are not allowed to leave their homes.

Multiplication is our heartbeat
Multiplication is the heartbeat of EMM. EMM has a more than 100-year history of establishing churches in many parts of the world, that are now planting communities and fellowships of believers in their own contexts and cultures.

Connected to each other
We are connected to each other. And we believe this because Paul told us so. In 1 Corinthians 12, Paul describes the church as the body of Christ. There are many members, all different, but they all come together to form the body and without any one of those members, the body is missing an important function.

Mission in Wales amid COVID-19
COVID-19 has presented unique challenges for Alan and Carol Wert. On March 23rd, the U.K. went into lockdown with each part of the U.K. enforcing their own rules. So what does this mean for the way the Werts minister to people?

Remembering the call
Forty years ago, May 31 was a Saturday. It was the last day of the week, of the month, and of a lengthy personal quest for clarity for EMM worker Andres Prins. He was 22 and had returned from a youth meeting of a Mennonite Brethren church in Montevideo, Uruguay, to the nearby Bible school dormitory where he was living.

One year later
Just a few weeks ago, on April 22, a ministry in Sierra Leone called Nyandengoh! saw its first anniversary. Starting with just a few children in Mattru Jong, the ministry now serves more than 70 children in neighboring villages.

Showing the Jesus video
Seeing people watch the Jesus video and hear the gospel for the first time was well worth the effort it took to plan the event!

Making disciples, locally
Did you know that EMM has a church revitalization coach whose main role is to help churches develop healthy personal and corporate spiritual lives? It’s true! His name is Antonio Ulloa and he frequently speaks in churches to equip and support them in their spiritual health and development.

Church isn't an exclusive club
A few months ago, a couple showed up at Michael Clancy’s church, easy to identify because they were obviously under the influence of heroin. Michael is an urban missionary serving with EMM in Lebanon city, Pennsylvania. During the service, the man kept drifting off, unaware of his surroundings, only to wake up, look around, and nod off again. The woman, on the other hand, was engulfed in the message. As tears rolled down her face, it was obvious that Jesus was speaking to her.

The tapestry continues to weave
Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor once wrote a wise statement about how our well-being is reliant on one another. She wrote: “We don’t accomplish anything in the world alone and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one’s life and all the weavings of individual threads from one to another that create something.”
03:43

Hand-in-hand, in service to others
A second chance at love brought Jim and Kathy Wohlers together after both of their spouses passed away from cancer. At their wedding more than 8 years ago, Jim and Kathy served their guests communion and told them that as they started their life together, they would be hand-in-hand as husband and wife in service toward others.
03:42
May 11, 2020
He didn’t give up on you or me
Sometimes as an urban missionary, Michael Clancy feels like his task is an uphill battle. He envisions his work of discipleship like being a pitcher on the mound, and his students are the batters who keep striking out as they fall back into their addictions. Michael is presented with a new “batter” every three or four pitches. Over the past 14 years, he can count a small handful of men who are continuing to live transformed lives.

Living courageously in the hope of Christ
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact many people in nearly every country around the world. And EMM workers, serving in 30 different countries, have each experienced this outbreak in different ways. But in the midst of the unknown realities that lie ahead, EMM workers live courageously in the hope of Christ.

A new kind of mission in Alabama
This summer, EMM Kingdom Teams will venture into a new region in Phenix City, Alabama. However, Alabama is not new to EMM — we began work there in the 1940s when we began sending evangelists.

New Mennonite churches in West Africa
Part of the Mennonite Church West Africa’s annual conference included a commissioning service for two men who are going out as missionaries. Less than one year after credentialing its first pastors, the church has discerned a call to start several new congregations.

Reflections from an evening walk
After a full day of engaging in her role as a teacher, Shirah Burns often likes to take a walk on the track of a nearby school. On this one particular night, there were a lot of people on the track. It was a beautiful night to exercise and as Shirah looked around she began to observe the people near her.
03:51
March 19, 2020
Great love and obedience
After almost four decades of walking with Christ, EMM Mission Team Director Lorri Bentch has learned that the cost of disobedience is always greater than the cost of obedience. Twenty-five years ago, she said “yes” to following her husband to Hungary to serve with EMM just one month after they were married.
04:11
March 9, 2020
A lifelong process
As a new follower of Jesus Christ in her early 20s, Nancy Hostetter was drawn to missionaries when they visited her church. A short-term mission trip led to a discipleship training program which led to meeting her husband of 30 years, Michael. As their family grew, they chose to plant themselves in Puerto Montt, Chile.

Do they all worship the same God?
Do Christians, Jews, and Muslims worship the same God? This is a perennial question that has led to much division in Christian theological circles. It’s also a question that EMM global David Shenk was invited to write about in a book called “Do Christians, Jews, and Muslims worship the same God?: Four views.”

Restoring life
Gibby Mane, pastor of the Catel Mennonite Church in Guinea-Bissau was visiting his in-laws in a village 5 miles from the church. During this trip, Gibby quickly became aware of a young man, named Milo, who was suffering from an overdose of alcohol.

February 17, 2020
Obedience is beautiful
In 2017, Betsy Stewart said “yes” to Jesus and went to Kenya for 6 months. Betsy’s term with EMM was spent at the Amani Gardens Inn in Nairobi, where she served as a hostess to guests who were traveling through the country. Betsy’s “yes” to Jesus was a “yes” to learning more about Kenya and its people — a place Betsy had visited several times before. But this kind of call wasn’t difficult for Betsy to obey.
03:59
January 27, 2020
Names are significant
Names are significant in the Dinka culture in South Sudan. Nicky Hess, who served as an EMM worker from 2016 to 2019 learned that early on when she was trying to learn the names of students and people from the community.
03:41
January 21, 2020
Reflecting on a legacy
On December 14, 2019, the Lord welcomed home his faithful servant, Richard A. Showalter. Richard served as the sixth president of EMM from 1994 to 2011. He left a lasting legacy on both the organization he served and the Global Anabaptist church.
03:57
January 16, 2020
Despair turned into worship
A few months ago, Bethany Tobin, who serves with both EMM and Virginia Mennonite Missions in Thailand, had a particularly tough week of poor sleep. After several tiring nights, a man in the village called for Bethany to come and help calm his wife who had become very emotional to a point of almost becoming violent. It was already 8:30 p.m. and Bethany was in her pajamas. Fearing her tendency toward insomnia, Bethany answered the phone with hesitation.

Breaking the ice
Paper maché. Country western line dancing. Skits and games involving superhero costumes. What do these seemingly unrelated things have in common with each other? In the Czech Republic, these activities are just a few of the ways that workers “break the ice” with students participating in an English summer camp.
02:22
January 3, 2020
Moving forward with hope
When Ted Smoker first arrived in Guatemala, he had ideas and hopes for how he might impact the lives of the K'ekchi'. He also had many questions on how to benefit them most effectively without causing harm to their beautiful culture and their self-reliance.

December 23, 2019
Changed and defined
How did living in East Asia change and define Emma, her husband, Ethan, and their family? The better question to ask is, “How did living in East Asia not change and define them?”
03:50
December 16, 2019
Unlearning and learning
Carol Wert is never quite sure if her own redefining occurs primarily because of the place where she lives or her continuing desire to follow Jesus authentically. But she can think of a few ways that living in Wales may have helped shape who she is today.

Fiesta de quinceañera
While living in Belize, the Davises became aware of a celebration called “la fiesta de quinceañera.” This event — which is sometimes referred to as a quince — is the tradition of celebrating a girl turning into a woman in Latino culture on her 15th birthday.

Transforming into green
Stacy Nofziger Prknová has served with EMM in the Czech Republic since 2011. Just like the colors yellow and blue turn into green when blended, Stacy is finding that she is being transformed as she lives and serves in Prague - the land of 100 spires.

Making “noise” by breaking ground
While Quechua culture has garnered the attention of American audiences with the recent film “Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” one Mennonite school in Peru has worked quietly to educate Peruvian children and protect their culture for nearly 15 years. In the shadow of the live-action adventure film that features the Quechua language, The PROMESA school made a little more “noise” as they broke ground for the construction of a new academic facility.

Glimpses of “home”
For the first two months that Eric and Janelle* were in Germany, they were living in a makeshift apartment. The apartment consisted of a small kitchen, a bathroom, and two open rooms where their family of five slept, ate, sat, and played. They were thankful for the space even if it was temporary.
03:44
October 2, 2019
Déjà vu
Webster’s New World College Dictionary defines the term “déjà vu” as “an uncanny feeling that one has been in this same place or had this same, specific experience before, although it is actually new to one.” Some of EMM’s newest workers are experiencing this feeling — like they’ve done this before — getting ready to relocate to a new place to serve in cross-cultural mission.

Sharing the gospel in Romanian
What happens when an EMM worker serving in Spain meets a Romanian-speaking man in a Spanish prison? For Rolando,* he looked back to the formative mission experience he had twenty-three years ago. Rolando was an EMM YES team leader for a team that was sent to Romania in 1996.

Dreams and following Jesus
Perhaps you've heard stories of people who don’t yet know Jesus having strange dreams. In many of these stories, people encounter a message to follow Jesus. Sometimes we might pause and ask, “Is it really happening like this?”

Debriefing for peacebuilders
Debriefing after the conclusion of a military operation is commonplace. In fact, the term “debrief” originates from military usage. So, how do peacebuilders debrief after serving in one of the most war-torn regions of the 21st-century world? For one Iraq-based team, they start with Paula*, an EMM worker based in Spain.

“God is back in Nyabange Mission”
Shouting, singing, and celebration resounded throughout the village. Water came flowing into tanks from Lake Victoria, which is just to the north of the Mennonite Theological College of East Africa.

A new chapter for mobilizers
Ethan and Emma* serve as EMM’s regional representatives for East Asia. At the beginning of 2019, it seemed like the right time for their family to leave the country in which they were serving. Due to some family health concerns and increasing challenges in their region of East Asia, Ethan and Emma moved to Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Broken glass and forgiveness
Tim told himself to relax, as he was sitting in the driver’s seat of his van with a rowdy crowd of youth inside and another rowdy crowd surrounding the van on the outside. Then it happened. Unexpectedly, the peal of shattered glass brought the noise to its sudden ruckus crescendo.

Behind the scenes
There is an African proverb that says “It takes a village to raise a child.” It may not take a village to prepare and send EMM’s mission interns and workers, but it does take a committed and experienced team who seek God’s voice and the best for all involved.

Becca was looking for adventure, for a chance to serve others, and to grow closer to God’s heart. She was able to use the internship for credit to complete her college degree. Becca’s semester in Peru did meet all of these expectations.

A year in review
Justice. Did you know it was voted the 2018 word of the year? According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, justice was looked up online 74% more often than it was in 2017. Like the year before, 2018 certainly had its time of hardships and sorrows. Justice seemed elusive. Wars and rumors of wars. Floods, earthquakes, famines. Political, racial, and economic divides.

Free coffee and new friends
A coffee house outreach is providing English-language practice for youth and young adults, with opportunities for leadership training, and of course, free coffee.

Using music for mission
Music can evoke emotions of joy, sadness, and reverence. It is also an effective way to share the gospel and get Scripture into the hearts and minds of people in any culture around the world. EMM worker Glenna Sollenberger is passionate about helping every culture understand the Scriptures in ways that are meaningful to them.
03:34
January 23, 2019
Eager to sing
In 2008, John and Debbie Coats started a pilot program for children which focused on character training in a rural village in southeastern Cambodia.
