Merry Christmas! As our gift to you, we at Wonderful To Tell are happy to introduce to you our friend Susan, a self professed Global Nomad. In Susan's story, she shares about God's gifts to her. How in very practical and personal ways God has provided for her needs. As we celebrate God's greatest gift to us ~ the birth of our savior, Jesus ~ it is amazing to realize that God, the creator of the universe, delights in US and cares for us intimately. We hope you enjoy this gift from Wonderful To Tell to you!
My name is Emily Williams. I grew up in Fort Worth, Texas. I studied education at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN where I received my masters. I then went on to teach in a Title I school in Nashville for a few years. After that, God gave me a desire to serve children in Uganda. Therefore, I moved to Kampala, Uganda where I worked for Sixty Feet, a ministry that provides immediate relief and long-term restoration to children living in prison. I had several roles with Sixty Feet, including Social Media manager, Finance Director, Interim Director, and Homeward Bound Project Coordinator. For Homeward Bound, my main role was seeking to remove children from incarceration and place them back in their families or in foster-care families. After working in Uganda for 2.5 years, I moved back to Fort Worth, where I started working at Rivertree Academy. Rivertree Academy seeks to educate children living in Como to live life well by following Jesus, thriving academically, and transforming their community. I am now the principal at Rivertree, where we serve approximately 80 children in PreK through 5th grade. I got married in June 2018 and love being back in Fort Worth with family and having the opportunity to serve the city where I grew up.
