Each year we pray for students to come to our training centre. God has been faithful to bring many different people through our doors. We enjoy getting to know the different people in each class and learning about what brought them here. We want to continue to share that joy with you!

Meet Ashley

Q: Where are you from?

I am an MK (missionary kid) from Venezuela, but have been living in Waukesha, Wisconsin for the past 6 years.

Q: Where did your desire come from to be involved with missions?

Growing up as an MK, I was privileged to have seen many different sides of missions. I saw the support roles, such as working in the finance office and secretarial work. My dad was on field leadership. My mama taught a Spanish course and helped out with new missionaries coming to the field. I was also able to be around people who were working on translations of the Bible and working side by side with tribal believers. All of that to say that I was exposed to many things growing up… and I couldn’t see anything else that was worth doing. I want to be used by God and to continue to grow in Christ and know Him better!

Q: What are your impressions of Emanate so far?

Emanate has been amazing! Everyone is so welcoming and loving here! I really appreciate all the ways the staff interact with the students and are willing to pour their lives into us. The classes are really good as well! I so appreciate the time that the teachers are willing to put into sharing their hearts with us as they expound on God’s Word. The campus itself is absolutely beautiful and the housing is AMAZING! Still blown away with everything!
