Whitley, Emily

Serving in Cambodia | Acct # 18330


Although Emily grew up feeling a tug toward missions, that calling took many forms over the years. After graduating from Clemson University, Emily interned for Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) at Georgia Southern University for two years. There she worked with college girls, mentoring them and leading Bible studies. Following her internship, she taught special education at a middle school in Greenville, S.C., for three years. She continued to think about missions during this time, but did not yet feel called to a particular place.

That changed in the summer of 2013. Emily interned with MTW in New York City, where she was introduced missionaries working in Cambodia. When she returned to Greenville, she continued to read about and pray for Cambodians and steadily fell in love with a people she had not yet met.

In 2014, Emily spent 11 months interning with MTW Cambodia. While there she ministered to university students at one of the city church plants in Phnom Penh and served with a locally run organization (Precious Women) that works with sexually exploited women. She is now returning to Cambodia for two years, resuming these ministries with the people she has come to love.
