Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at The University of Texas - Dallas . I am so excited that He has given me the opportunity to serve him in this way! 

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. 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. As a college student at University of California, Riverside, God invited me to a deeper relationship. Through my college years I encountered Christ through sacraments, authentic friendships, adoration, retreats and FOCUS conferences (SLS18 and SEEK 2019). Jesus invited me to have an open heart to let the Lord use my gifts and talents. 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.

Como misionero, mi mayor deseo es guiar a todos los estudiantes a Cristo. Jesús ha transformado mi vida y no quiero nada más que llevar esta alegría a los demás y presentarles el mensaje del Evangelio que cambia la vida. Como estudiante universitario en la Universidad de California, Riverside, Dios me invitó a una relación más profunda y constante. Durante mis años universitarios me encontré con Cristo a través de sacramentos, amistades auténticas, adoración, retiros y conferencias FOCUS (SLS18 y SEEK 2019). Jesús me invitó a tener un corazón abierto para permitir que el Señor use mis dones y talentos. En su ministerio en la tierra, Jesús se humilló para encontrarse con nosotros a nuestro nivel, asumir nuestra humanidad y pasó la mayor parte de su tiempo invirtiendo profundamente en unos pocos. Miro el propio ejemplo de Jesús para encontrar el mejor método para llegar al mundo. Me han sorprendido constantemente las diferentes almas que he encontrado en la universidad.
