I was a student leader during my time at Oklahoma State University, and now I'll be going back for round two at the University of Memphis. Go tigers!!
Growing up Catholic, I thought I knew it all. Apologetics
and Church tradition were taught in my religion classes growing up, so I knew
that going to Church was important and that Jesus loved me. But it wasn’t until
FOCUS came to my campus at Oklahoma State that my world was rocked and turned
upside down. The missionaries showed me what it meant to live out my Catholic
faith, and how radically I was called to live my life. FOCUS has challenged me
in so many ways, and I am so thankful for how the missionaries helped me to
grow. It was through bible studies and one-on-one mentorship that I learned
what it truly meant to be Catholic, how to share my faith with others, and how
to live a virtuous life. The things I learned through FOCUS continue to shape
who I am today. And I hope that this next year, I will be able to change the
lives of students and ignite a fire in their hearts to pursue Christ.
My hope is that the way that I lead, love, and live life with these women on campus as a missionary will help them desire to follow Christ deeper. And I hope that by the way I imitate Christ, they desire to imitate Him and draw closer to Him as well.
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. I've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
By financially supporting me, you are joining with me on the mission field. It is through your support that I am able to move to a campus and effectively minister to students. Also, if you do decide to support me, I will share with you my stories from campus and keep you updated on what all is going on where I'm serving. We are all called to help each member of the body of Christ, and I hope that you do consider helping me. With your help, we can change the world and get souls to Heaven.
I would love to pray for you if you will pray for me too. And I hope that you will consider joining my mission team. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send me an email at [email protected] God bless.
1 Thessalonians 2:8 - So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us.
We encounter God in an intimate relationship through daily prayer, the sacraments and the Scriptures.
By building genuine friendships, we meet students on a deeper level.
We teach students how to share the gospel, who in turn teach other students how to pass it on …
