Sharing hospitality at Hub 450

Written by Julia Tsai

At the end of 2020, EMM staff began their move to relocate the Central Administrative Office to Lancaster City. We’re calling this newly renovated space, Hub 450, after its physical address at 450 North Prince Street. The first floor is already beginning to be used for meaningful cross-cultural ministry, and the second floor is providing a space to continue carrying out the important work of calling, sending, and supporting workers around the world. Here’s a first look at the new space with some reflections from EMM staff.

Living transformed

Written by Julia Tsai

From a young age, “church” was a big part of my life. I accepted Jesus as my savior at the age of 3. My mom says I boldly came to her one afternoon and told her it was something I wanted. She had also accepted Jesus herself just a short time before my request. After a bit of searching, our home church became In The Light Ministries (ITLM), where some of my earliest memories took place. Up until age 13, I was consistently attending services and participating in events. I even participated in a homeschool group for 6th grade held at ITLM. For one reason or another, I had decided to return to public school by the end of the year.

Welcome neighbor

Written by Michael Booth

God is taking EMM in a new direction. EMM is venturing forth into the city — to an ideal location on North Prince Street. Lancaster City is a beautiful place that I have come to appreciate. I am so grateful our God has called me into Lancaster, and I’m encouraged that God has called EMM too.

Albania is not new for EMM worker Sonya Harnish. Although Sonya’s current term began in 2017, her initial exposure to Albania was in 1997 when she was part of a YES team in the country. Sonya would then go on to serve there as a long-term worker from 2000 to 2009.

God is in each place

Written by Amaris Allan

When we first decided to serve with EMM, we didn’t expect to spend time in two very different contexts in the course of our three-year term. We started out in a town setting in Zanzibar, Tanzania, where we spent almost two years.
