Where I serve

I am very excited to announce that I am serving my first year as a missionary with FOCUS- The Fellowship of Catholic University Students at Louisiana State University (LSU)!! I am beyond blessed to be able to work for an organization that so profoundly changed my life. Please pray for my fellow missionaries and for the students at LSU and Geaux Tigers!!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is for all students to know Christ Jesus and fulfill His great commission (Mt. 28:18-20). My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring to students the freedom that comes from living in the loving gaze of Christ. FOCUS was instrumental in helping me realize this freedom and it was through the friendship and investment of a FOCUS missionary at Troy that I was able to learn what it means to truly live as a disciple of Christ. Now, I am honored to carry on this mission at LSU. 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. The hope is that the sharing of my life with a few men, through a discipleship like the one Jesus modeled, will lead them to lifelong intimacy with the Trinity. 

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 carry out this mission. I feel very blessed to have amazing people on this journey with me. I love what Saint Theresa of Calcutta says about mission. "Some give by going and some go by giving." If you are interested in joining me on this mission through giving of your finances and prayers, 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. 

God Bless!
