Where I serve

God has called me to serve the students at West Connecticut State University (West Conn)!

My Story

The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty -- it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There's a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God. - Mother Teresa

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. 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. 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. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus. 

Your Impact

I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things. - Mother Teresa

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.  While I give to the mission by going, you can join in the mission with me by giving.

I invite you to partner with me in this vital work by adopting me as your missionary. If you are interested in doing so, 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.

I look forward to sharing this journey with you! Please e-mail at [email protected] if you have any questions.
