Where I serve
Rock Chalk Jayhawk, GO KU!!! I am grateful to serve at the University of Kansas for my first year as a missionary. My family has had a special tie to Lawrence, Kansas over the years because my older sister and her husband met while they were students at KU. My grandparents, eight of my cousins, and four of my aunts and uncles all live close to the university. God blessed me with this placement in so many ways and I can't wait to see how He transforms and reignites this special campus!
One of four girls, I grew up with a strong foundation and conviction for the faith because my parents invested in building up a family for God. It wasn't until college that I confronted the sad reality of our culture and felt the drive to live my life sharing the truth of Jesus Christ.
While at the University of Colorado Boulder, I met people who were searching for meaning in their lives, desiring love, and questioning whether or not there was a truth. The relationships I made in college enabled me to enter into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and truly encounter His love and mercy through every person who He brought into my life.
In November of my senior year, I accepted a
job to work for PepsiCo in Seattle, but as the year went on, I knew God wanted
me to let go of control and go all in with my faith in Him. In March, I made
the decision to change plans and serve as a FOCUS missionary because I am
convicted that the problems our culture face today stem from a lack of
relationship with Jesus Christ.
"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
