EMELYN HART

Stop for the One Director
Pemba, Mozambique

Emelyn grew up on the oceanside near Boston, Massachusetts and decided to trade her Atlantic ocean view for one of the Indian Ocean in Pemba, Mozambique in 2005, when she started working with Iris Global.While working at the baby house she fell in love with a little girl, Natalia Joy, who she took into her home upon arrival to the children's center because she was malnourished. She has since pursued adoption giving this precious one hope and a future. She has recently earned her Masters in Organizational Leadership from Regent University. She has recently taken a position with Iris Global as the Vice President of Community, which includes her role as Director of Stop for the One, and hopes to further influence and support others who feel a call to change nations by simply stopping for the one in front of them.

Our Stop for the One Base Administrators are our heroes! They each live at one of our Iris Global Bases around the world and help facilitate the vision and mission of Stop for the One in the nations in which they are working. They help manage the database, communicate stories and testimonies, and so much more. We are truly so grateful for them!
