Emily Albert

Hey! My name's Emily. I'm a FOCUS missionary, proud godmother, fisherwoman, and world traveler. I am a bayou girl at heart, born and raised in South Louisiana. I am so eager for what the Lord has in store for my first year on mission and I can't wait to share more about it with you!

Where I serve

After graduating from Nicholls State University, God has called me to serve college students at Emporia State University in Kansas, the Sunflower State.

My Story

As I began college, my faith life consisted of knowing a lot about Christ and His Church, but distancing myself from knowing Him.  It all began to change after an invitation - an invitation from a friend to join her in praying the Psalms in the Liturgy of the Hours.  After encountering something different and beautiful in this prayer of the Church, I wondered what all had I been missing.  This led me to start asking the hard questions and finding reasons behind all that I had been taught to believe, to test out my faith for myself.  As amazing friendships with the students and missionaries I was praying with formed, I found the truth that I had been searching for as they totally lived out their faith with joy.  Engaging in the activities at our Catholic student center, I came to deeply know Jesus and His life-changing love for me and I fell in love with Him!  Amidst all the voices of this world, I encountered the love I was made for and that brought so much joy, peace, and freedom.  I want to be that for others, one more voice to make an invitation to know Christ, so that women know love that transforms everything!

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 of reaching a generation and the world for Christ.  Your support enables me to be radically available to the Lord and students full time.  If you desire to give your 'yes' to this mission through your support, you will find the joys of sharing in the building of God's kingdom and I'd be honored to share this mission with you!
