EM Update July 2019

Dan Ryan (EMA Executive Director) has been here in Siloam Springs and it has been good to hear first-hand stories of all that’s happening over in Thailand and Myanmar. It was fun to see a video of them leveling a building site by pulling/pushing a log over the ground… photos of elephants dragging felled trees for making lumber free-hand with chainsaws… barefoot builders bolting notched beams together for the open-air structures of the clinic and hospital. He told of previously timid students who are now managing building projects and difficult medical situations. Patients are receiving more than just accessible, affordable healthcare – they are being treated with respect and love, as well as the necessary medication & treatment. I’m constantly amazed by how much they can do with so few resources and so many challenges. THANK YOU for your prayers & support  – we couldn’t do any of this without YOU!!

Earth Mission Annual Reports


Earth Mission Annual Report 2018

“Sometimes I process the gifts which come to Earth Mission, in order to help in the office. It is such a blessing to visualize those of you who start a bank transfer or sign a check. It also gives me time to interact with Laura and Jill as they make things happen to get the money to the places where needed. Our new software allows us to better stay in touch with our donors and their goals.

We are very thankful for your part in supporting our projects through your prayers and your dollars. We hope this Annual Report for 2018 will help you understand our ministry better. You may continue to keep current with our activities by reading our EM Update each month.

Often, I find my actions are motivated by my engineering training or my natural bent and my giving through friendship or personal interest. Jesus said “Feed my sheep.” A life of service to the Master is the call we have. It is not so much as recognizing a need and acting according to my gifting but rather serving Jesus and He will use my gifting to bless that service.”

Earth Mission Board Vice President

Earth Mission Asia Yearbooks


Earth Mission Asia Yearbook 2018

God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs. God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted. God blesses those who are humble, for they will inherit the whole earth. God blesses those who hunger and thirst for justice, for they will be satisfied. God blesses those who are merciful, for they will be shown mercy. God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God. God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called the children of God. God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.” – Matthew 5:3-12 (NLT)

This is who we hope to be and the reason why we take up the banner of training amazing young people in a truly unique place in the world. To provide quality healthcare for ALL people in Karen state. That is the crazy big goal that the people in this book have committed deeply to. Most have left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or property for His sake. I’m proud to work alongside these wonderful people.”

Earth Mission Asia Calendar 2019

“As we start this new year of 2019, and you look through this calendar, think about these individuals and who they represent.

  • Their families who brought them to our clinic for care.
  • Our students and medical staff who took care of them.
  • The teachers who taught our students.
  • The administration staff who took care of the myriad of finances, legal, communication and other support so these patients could be cared for.
  • The technicians who fixed power problems, water issues and renovated buildings.
  • You, our donors, who gave in so many ways to make this all happen.

May you have a good beginning to 2019, looking forward to all that God will provide. “This is from the Lord and is His doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.” – Psalm 118:23 AMP”

EMA Administration and Finance Director
