Emily Padilla

Administrative Assistant & Photographer

Emily Padilla joined the New Life Center team in 2013. She served as the Science teacher for the Tutoring/Extra Lessons until August of 2017. Since then she has been working in the office to assist Josephine in administrative duties, and helps out wherever is needed. She often is one of the designated photographers for ministry events and helps keep the social media communication updated. She also has been able to use her art and Zambian experiences to help illustrate a children’s book series about a Zambian boy and his adventures. Emily was born to missionaries in the DR Congo but grew up in Indiana in the United States. In college, she majored in Biology with an emphasis on cross-cultural ministry since she knew God was calling her to work in the mission field.  She spent a year teaching at an international school in DR Congo right after college, and it was during this year that she met Delbert and Sandy Groves and was impressed with the work at New Life Center. Years later God ended up calling her there! She feels honored to be a small part of what God is doing in Zambia through NewLife Center.
