I really loved being at Emmanuel House as an intern for Precious and Liam. I learned a lot of skills there, not just about writing newsletters and setting up events, and doing some errands, but also about who I am as a person. The classes at Emmanuel House and the work I did there helped me grow so much spiritually in more ways than I had ever experienced. I learned so much more about the bible and also what it means to be a Christian and how to grow as a person. Being at Emmanuel House has been a huge, profound, and lasting impact on my life that I will never forget. I have made lifelong friends with Precious and Liam and am so grateful for their direction and spiritual wisdom in my life.
I have seen the entire process that my parents, Liam and Precious Atchison, have gone through to begin and continue this ministry. I have not only learned a great deal simply from watching them interact with students and other people, but I have also been incredibly inspired by the mission of Emma House. Their focus is so personal and they really care about each individual who comes through the door. I think that the small class sizes, which provide a much more intimate and welcoming setting, is very appealing to most people. Also, as a household setting, it is comfortable, welcoming, and the coffee's always ready! Something that I see as a non-student but as a first-hand observer of how things are run, is how much time, even outside the classroom, that my parents put into this ministry. They are truly passionate about it, genuinely care about people, and they are so very good at what they do!
