It is the people of CSI Ministries who have inspired Emy in so many ways. Her heart has been touched immensely by the unconditional love and dedication of each individual involved in the Administration, the fellow Board Members and also the Missionaries out in the field who are living this mission day to day. However, her biggest inspiration with CSI is a group of very special Jamaican sisters in Christ whose love for the Lord shined bright one beautiful afternoon while she was on a mission trip to Highgate. Her heart was overcome with God’s joy as they began to sing, dance and praise the Lord. Their love and enthusiasm for our precious Savior inspired her so that she was blessed to write a Christian Children’s Book, O’ Happy Day which was published in April 2015. This Ministry is love to me. The mission statement says “short-term”, however God has planted a seed in my heart that continues to grow with the compassion for what CSI Ministries is doing to grow and to help further the Kingdom of God.
