I am serving as Team Director at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. God has called my team and I to serve as the first FOCUS team on the campus for the 2018-2019 school year, and I am so excited for this adventure! My team and I are ready to strive for sainthood and the mission of Jesus Christ (Matthew 29:18-20) together. Please keep us in your prayers, and know of my prayers for you as well!
During my time in college, at Loras College in Dubuque, IA, I saw first-hand the temptations, lies, and anxiety our world feeds us. While at Loras I found myself battling these temptations and struggles while trying to learn who I was and what I wanted to live for. It was my relationship with the FOCUS missionaries and authentic friendships rooted in Christ that taught me who I am and how to give myself fully to Jesus Christ. I learned who I was as a beloved daughter of God the Father, how to pray and allow Jesus to walk with me every day, and I learned the importance of listening to the guidance of the Holy Spirit dwelling within me. Now, as a FOCUS missionary, I want to communicate this same invitation to life with Jesus to all those I meet. Jesus is the answer, and I pray every day for the ability to be used as His instrument in inviting others to know this truth.
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 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 will schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
