Emmanuel Home of Protection



The Emmanuel Home of Protection was opened in 2008 as a ministry of BMDMI by career missionaries Karl and Beth Brassfield. Originally intended to minister to orphans, the direction quickly changed as the need was discovered for a Home that would minister to young ladies, who were victims of sexual abuse and sexual exploitation. Shortly after opening for operation, a young lady was placed in the home by the Nicaraguan authorities who was 8 months pregnant. Her pregnancy was a result of the abuse she had endured. This was an unforseen area of ministry that was quickly embraced.


The young ladies in the Home range in age from newborns to 17 years old with the exception of a couple of older young ladies with special needs. Each young lady is placed in the Home by the Nicaraguan government until they can return to their family of origin or an alternative family. Young ladies may stay in the home for a very short time or for an extended time based on their particular family situation. While they are residents of the EHP, we work hard to prepare them for a successful life outside of the environment of the Home. Each young lady receives care in the physical, spiritual, psychological, and educational areas of life. EHP also provides life skill classes and vocational training for our residents. 


From week-long mission trips to summer internships, volunteers are always welcomed at EHP.


The flagship ministry of BMDMI is Short-Term Mission Teams, which sends more than 100 teams across the world each year to meet physical and spiritual needs. BMDMI’s Short-Term Mission Team ministry is life-changing for the volunteers, offering an opportunity for their faith to be put into action as they serve the “least of these” around the world.


For more information on joining or forming a BMDMI Short-Term Mission Team, or additional ways you can serve at the EHP, contact BMDMI Teams Department via email or phone – 601.544.5007.



Sponsorships are available for each young girl at the Emmanuel Home of Protection. For just $50 per month, you can help supply the food, shelter, clothing, education, and spiritual care each abuse survivor needs.
