Hello! My name is John and the lovely woman you see next to me is my wife Ariel. We got married May 13th, 2016 in Sacred Heart Church in Mt. Holly, NJ. I am a third year FOCUS missionary and this is Ariel's first year as a missionary. I am the Team Director at the University of Maine in Orono in the wonderful state of Maine. We both grew up in Burlington Township, NJ in the Diocese of Trenton. We graduated from Montclair State University in 2015, where I studied Physical Education and Health and Ariel studied Early Childhood Education. I chose to be a missionary because the impact that Christ had through FOCUS missionaries while I was in college. Through those missionaries I encountered Jesus Christ in a very real way that changed my life. Ariel has decided to join our efforts on campus this year after being inspired by other missionaries and discerning how God desires her to share with the women on campus their true identity as beloved daughters of the Father.
