For Emily, Nigeria is home. She has lived there with her family on the mission field since she was four years old. Her parents work with Wycliffe Bible translators among the largest group of nomadic cattle herders in the world. Her experiences and her parents’ example have made an impact on Emily. Someday, she would like to join the cause.
However, Emily wanted a Christian college to be part of her plan first:
She says God led her to the perfect fit—Hope College—and a way to get there, with support from the Christian Missionary Scholarship Foundation.
Emily continues to listen to the call. After college, she plans to attend the Summer Institute of Linguistics and then join the Wycliffe team as a Bible translator.
