Get to Know Emily Alcorn

Hi, I'm Emily Alcorn. I minister in Portugal.


Ministry Description

For the first part of my internship, I was with Word of Life in São Paulo, Brazil. I helped with their children's ministry called Vinde Meninos which when translated means "Welcome Children". The Lord taught me so much as I served and loved on those children. I am very thankful for the Lord's guidance and for growing me while in Brazil.

The next step in this journey takes me to Word of Life Portugal, located just outside of Lisbon. One of the goals of Word of Life Portugal is to reach the locals with the love and salvation that Christ alone offers. Along with building community relationships, I am serving in one of the local churches with one of the other missionary couples. I also help out with media and property upkeep. Throughout the year, we host outreach events like Easter Camp, Summer Camp, Sports Marathon Day, and other events on property. These events give us an open door to share the Truth of Jesus Christ. I am thrilled to be partnering with the missionaries in Portugal to reach the Português people with the Gospel!

Please pray for me in the coming months as I learn and serve in Portugal. Prayers for boldness and faithfulness are welcomed!

About Emily

At five years old I heard the gospel clearly presented at Sunday school and finally understood that I needed Jesus. Having grown up in a Christ-loving home I had heard about Jesus many times. But that day as a five year old was the first time I realized that I had to make a choice to trust in Christ. I learned that Jesus was more than just the Son of God that I sang about, but Jesus is the One who has paid the price for my sins by coming to Earth, living a sinless life, dying on the cross, and rising from the dead three days later - conquering sin and death. When I realized that I was a sinner in need of a Savior, I went home and choose to put my full faith in Christ to save me. From that point on until now, God has brought me through many beautiful trials and triumphs as I continue walk with Him.

"Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you." Psalm 63:3
