Emily Bucher, editor

Even though Emily didn’t have a choice, she has been involved in prison ministry ever since she was born. Her father (Nelson Zeiset, currently chaplain at SCI Mahoney) began his involvement in prison ministry before she was born 25 years ago. Since then, she has made the choice to work with Del as an editor during the writing of his book, Soldiers of the Cross, and has volunteered at LCYIC (Lancaster County Youth Intervention Center).

She does, however, have a life outside of the prison realm. After graduating from high school, she attended Rosedale Bible College in Ohio and then graduated Magna Cum Laude from Millersville University in 2008; she married her “amazing husband”, Kenton Bucher. Emily spent time substitute teaching and taught English for two years at Ephrata Mennonite School. On May 23, 2011 Kenton and Emily welcomed their precious daughter, Kiana Grace, into their lives. Kiana continues to bring them much happiness every day!

Since Emily no longer hears prison stories from her Dad at the supper table every night, she’s excited to play a part in the ministry of Streams of Life and once again be involved in prison ministry.
