Emma Grace Saarinen
Emma is from Laurel, Maryland and blessed to have been raised in the Catholic faith along with her 5 younger siblings. All of her life, Emma Grace has felt great peace and joy when serving the Lord and His people, but never considered doing mission work. It was not until the summer of 2014 that she first felt the Lord ignite the desire to become a missionary. In the beginning she was hesitant to accept this wonderful call, but the Lord continued kindling her desire and made the path to missions very clear. After finishing high school, Emma Grace was eager to start, so she completed an internship with FMC, helping the staff and crew at Big Woods, and received her missionary training with Intake 2018.
