1 Thessalonians 2:8 "Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well."

Hello! My name is Danna, I am a second-year FOCUS missionary, and I would love to tell you a little bit about myself.

I love my family. I drink a cup of tea each morning and every night. I learned patience from my father and carefree wonder from my mother. If you took a microscope to my heart you would see my brothers and my little sister. My favorite activities are kayaking, reading, playing cards and chess, and sitting in a coffee shop talking to someone I love. I have a cat named Blu and I like conversations about the meaning of life. I am learning to engage my mind in study, my heart in prayer, and my soul in conversation. I have fallen head over heals in love with Jesus Christ, and I want to share His heart with the world.

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Benedictine College in Kansas with this wonderful team of fellow missionaries below!! 

Throughout the past few years, Jesus has radically changed my life and given me a desire to live fully for Him. It's a story that I'd love to share with you.

My Story

When I got to college, I discovered a passion for clean water and to work towards solving the global water crisis. At the same time, I was coming to know God in a way I never had before. Through prayer, the sacraments, and friendships geared towards heaven, I developed a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. He is my Lord, my friend, the lover of my soul, and the source of my joy. My passion for clean water transformed into a passion for Living Water; the striking need to bring everlasting life, in addition to an element of life, to the world. 

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead students to Christ. Each person in this world has a body, mind, and soul made by the Lord and for the Lord. We are created for a relationship with God, and it is in that relationship that we find the meaning and purpose of life. While we are all made for this, so many people are seeking fulfillment in other things. I look out at our broken world and see a people in dire need of authentic love and friendship. 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. 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 different souls I've encountered on campus.

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. Regardless of job title, we are all called to be missionaries; to spread the love of God through our time, talent, and treasure. As Mother Teresa once said, "some give by going, others go by giving." If you are interested in going on mission with me by giving, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I would be honored to share this mission with you.
