Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Northwestern State University in Louisiana! My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel.Our Father call's each one of us to trust completely in Him and follow His will wherever it leads us. I would love share my journey with you!

My Story

While at a retreat with Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia’s in the spring of 2014 I had my first encounter with FOCUS missionaries. I had just left Texas A&M after my third semester because I felt God calling me to religious life and had begun my discernment process. However, God had other plans for me. After a year and a half of living at home and attending community college, I re-enrolled at A&M in the fall of 2015. I knew FOCUS was now on A&M’s campus, so I decided to join a bible study and it became the highlight of each week. One of the FOCUS missionaries invited me to the Student Leadership Summit 2016 (SLS) and although I didn’t know what to expect, I decided to attend with an open heart. While there I learned more about FOCUS and the Great Commission. After SLS I felt called to lead a bible study and since then I have fallen in love with sharing the gospel. Throughout the spring semester God slowly instilled in my heart the desire to be a missionary. It was humbling to be able to share my life with the girls in the bible study I lead and grow closer to God together. I decided to work for FOCUS because I strongly believe in what FOCUS is doing: winning souls for Christ through authentic friendship. When I was Eucharistic minister at my College Catholic Center it brought me joy to be able to share Jesus in living flesh with other students. That is what sparked my interest to bring the gospel to others, which is what I am doing as a FOCUS missionary.

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission.As Mother Teresa once said, "some give by going, others go by giving." If you are interested in going on mission with me by giving, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I would be honored to share this mission with you.
