BIRTHPLACE : San Francisco, CA, USA
VERSE : Isaiah 40:28
PROFESSION : Civil Engineer
JOINED EMI : 2009
“In university I heard that EMI could combine my civil engineering education with my heart to serve. After graduating, I did an EMI internship in Colorado Springs where I found like-minded people working together for God’s glory. I wanted to be a part of that!
I joined EMI staff to help with the Intern Program, which was a great fit because I knew engineering design was not my future. Over my seven years in the Global Office, I was able to mobilize hundreds of new interns, volunteers, and staff all over the world.
A few years ago, during a mission trip I was leading with my local church, God called me from “sending” to “going.” It's exciting to be part of the new EMI office in Cambodia, a place where we could make a great impact. For me, God’s call to go to Cambodia was just as clear as His call to join EMI.”

Many EMI staff are learning or using a second language. Vicky Mah is learning Khmer in Phnom Penh, others are learning or speaking Spanish, French, or Hindi.
Please pray that God would give these EMI language learners the capacity, courage, and endurance it takes to learn and speak well.
