Emily has been at the Point Church for four years, and has been involved in a variety of ways, most recently leading us in worship. In October 2018 Emily had a remarkable experience during a Sunday morning service. She knew that the Lord was calling her to return to Brazil (she had volunteered for 6 months there with BMS World Mission in 2001), and in the weeks to follow this was confirmed in amazing ways. In August Emily will be going to work in Sao Paulo for a minimum of 6 months with a view to discerning God’s call for the future. She will be volunteering for The Eagle Project, a charity whose aim is to help break the cycle of crime and drug abuse within adolescents in the youth prisons. They run specialised drama workshops for the boys in the prisons and provide professional help and support to the families, many of whom live in extreme poverty.
