EARTH MISSION ANNUAL REPORT 2017

“As a representative and ambassador of Earth Mission, my words and actions are seen as a reflection of the values and goals of the organization. Therefore, I desire to portray a true likeness of the heart of this ministry. Because we aim to implement culturally relevant changes that will benefit the regions we work in, it is important to understand the societal differences and expectations that may hinder or foster those changes. We must build healthy, peaceful relationships with those in places of authority, so that the people they govern will profit from our efforts.

That’s when we find out whether we have truly counted the cost for undertaking such lofty goals. I believe that our teams have been faithful to do the research, training, preparations and evaluations needed to bring lasting progress to areas without the firm foundations that can only be forged during times of peace. When there is a lack of healthcare, education, and/or financial provision, it is difficult to live a peaceful life. We seek to equip people with the necessary skills and services that allow them to transcend the burdensome limitations they currently struggle under. And we pray that our lives will be an accurate depiction of the loving heart and hands of God, the Prince of Peace.

Thanks for all you do to help us with bringing this dream to life!”

EARTH MISSION ANNUAL REPORT 2016

“Sitting at my desk I open mail from all across the Country! It is thrilling to see how far reaching is the support of Earth Mission. I had been on the sidelines admiring the organization’s work, when I got a call to volunteer in the Earth Mission office. This came at a perfect time for me as I had retired from administrative work at Grace Episcopal Church. Working with the accounts receivable had been something I enjoyed and knew I would miss. Earth Mission needed me and I needed the volunteer spot! It has been a pleasure to see the mission grow and mature as changes have come about overseas. Dr. Mitch and Caryl continue to expand their vision in Thailand/Myanmar. With Dan and Deanna there full time, the possibilities continue with training healthcare providers, engineering training for clean water, roads, transportation, and providing education for administration. This is exemplified by students eager to learn and to carry this new knowledge back to their villages. In Pakistan, Shani and Jess are making an impact in schooling, healthcare, and developing their microfinance program.

God’s people all deserve to have what we Americans often take for granted. So many lives have been touched by the goodness of Earth Mission supporters, and I thank those who faithfully support Earth Mission with gifts of money and prayer!”

Earth Mission Board Secretary and EM Office Accounts Receivable

EARTH MISSION ANNUAL REPORT 2015

“We have had a very mild winter here in Arkansas. The flowers are already blooming and the trees are putting forth buds. It is the season of new life in the world around us and also within our ministry. As with any new life, there is a period of tender growth that needs the protection and nurture of those placed in the role of caretaker. We covet your prayers during this time of establishing solid foundations for these new projects. Please pray for wisdom and stamina for their leaders, so that as they grow together into greater maturity they will continue to breathe life into all that come into their circle of influence. Thank you!”

EARTH MISSION ASIA CALENDAR 2018

“We at EMA have a heart and passion for the people in this calendar. Some of our work is teaching medicine, English and math, some is working in the clinic, some is engineering tech, some is legal and finance, some is graphic design and video.
All are ways to work with these amazing people showcased in our calendar.
The students, patients and others we work with give back to us. It is a circle that is not complete only going one way. They need us and we need them. God has given us this great opportunity to help and work with them.
“I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all, making my prayer with joy.“ – Philippians 1: 3-4”

PROMPTER NOVEMBER 2018

“Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so many families and friends are busy making plans to celebrate together. But if you don’t yet have special plans for Thanksgiving, maybe you could find someone to be a blessing to by reaching out to them in a big or small way. We all have so many reasons to be grateful, and sharing those with others is such a great way to overcome the challenges this life can throw our way. I am personally thankful for things like recently receiving some very generous donations for EMA, great people to work with & great work to do. Whatever your holiday plans are, take a moment to thank someone for a big or small way they’ve blessed you this year. And thanks again for all YOU do to bless this ministry!

PS. With the upcoming holidays, many will be shopping online for gifts and other seasonal purchases. Please consider going to smile.amazon.com and choose Earth Mission to receive funds donated by AmazonSmile. It’s one way you can bless this ministry just by being intentional about how you shop… whether it’s on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday or any day of the year!”
