Where I serve

Hi, I'm Kami! I'm a first year missionary and Jesus has called me to serve at the University of Pittsburgh! You can probably find me getting lost sight-seeing through the city, making avocado toast, or having long conversations with students over pasta at the Newman Center. I have a pretty awesome story about how Jesus has changed my life -- I think you should hear it sometime! Come find me and I'd love to share it with you :)

My Story

"You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you."
St. Augustine (patron saint/best friend)

I was blessed to grow up in a Catholic home but when I left to attend George Mason University, I also decided to leave the Church. Sunday mass, daily prayer, adoration and confession, these were not a part of my life and soon after, neither were joy, peace, and hope. Our Lord is so good and He led me to the Catholic Campus Ministry at Mason! Through RCIA-Confirmation classes, authentic friendships, mission trips, service teams, and a whole lot of intercessory prayer, I came to fall deeply in love with Jesus Christ and His Church.

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. Our culture today encourages us to turn in on ourselves and seek pleasures. Christ calls us to look up! To “seek the things that are above" (Col 3:1) and teach others to do the same. FOCUS missionaries greatly impacted my life by following Jesus' example. Through bible studies, football games, one-on-one mentorship, Newman Center socials, daily prayer, and an openness to the Holy Spirit, I pray that I can do the same for every student I encounter.

Your Impact

"Some give by going, others go by giving. Without both, there is no mission.”

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to radically trust Christ and rely totally 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 since I gave my "yes". If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and we can schedule a visit or phone call! I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
