Hey! My name's Andrew and I'm a FOCUS missionary.

Where we serve

The 2017-2018 school year is going to be great to continue the fruits from this past year! Returning to Boise State I am excited to continue to work on the field and see the fruit God brings forth. This past year we had over 100 Bible Study participants and 8 students leasing their own Bible Studies! Natasha and I welcomed our first child into the world, Mariana Lucia, on April 5th and we are so excited to be able to serve the students at Boise through mour family, to be a witness of what a Christ-centered marriage is like. Not that it is easy but that it is honest and that we depend on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! And to share the joy that babies bring.

Our Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. I was raised Catholic but it was really only that thing I did and not a conviction of the Lord's love for me. When I went to Northern Arizona University, it was a FOCUS missionary that reached out to me and invited me to come to his bible study. While it wasn't an easy thing to get me to come, he continued inviting me and I finally went. It was through his friendship, leadership, and mentorship that I learned what it means to be a disciple of Christ. I started to understand how deep the love of God is for His people and that our identity is based on that alone. This started to change my world and now I want to pay that forward to the future leaders of our world. My wife had a similar experience and it was through coming to know the Lord more deeply that we came to know Jesus's love for each other and to see the good in each other. Through growing closer to Christ we went from a poor opinion of the other to wanting to serve each other and get the other to Heaven. More than that we want to live a witness where we aren't only getting each other to heaven but the students and people in our lives who experience our family as well.

Your Impact

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 to meet some amazing people and to be able to invite them to join me in this mission. If you would like to hear more about the mission and are thinking about partnering with me in it please contact me. We will set a time to meet up so I can share some of the awesome things that have been happening on the college campuses. God Bless and thank you.
