Hi friends! My name's Marta. I'm a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania. Hail to PITT!  You'll typically find me jogging the streets of campus, playing soccer with students, sharing coffee with another at a local coffee shop, or in the Newman Center.  I have a pretty unique story about how God 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

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. I want to do this because I know what it is like to live a life searching for true happiness.  I knew in my heart I found what I was looking for when I was led to Christ by another student in my college years.  I want to be a light to lead other searching college students.  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 beautiful souls I've encountered on campus and I hope to effect their life as much as they have affected mine.

Your Impact

When I joined 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 we can schedule a visit.  I'd be honored to share this mission with you!
