Where I serve

Hi! My name is Luisa Paulina Quiroz and I am a third year FOCUS missionary. God has called me to the greatest adventure of my life by having the opportunity to serve with FOCUS Missions this year!! am humbled and overjoyed that Jesus has chosen me for this mission and fulfilling one of the greatest dreams in life, being His little missionary.

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life was transformed by Jesus when I encountered Him my junior year of college. I encountered true joy and His merciful love. I desire nothing more than to share this life-changing message of the Gospel that set me free. Although the college I attended did not have FOCUS on campus, I was extremely blessed to attend two FOCUS mission trips. One to the Dominican Republic and another to Argentina which radically transformed my spiritual journey. It was because of the friendships with the missionaries and their example that I began to seek a more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. Because of those mission trips I began to center my life around Jesus Christ. It was in those mission trips that I encountered the joy that comes from serving others. It was Jesus who showed me that serving others and sharing the Gospel is the purest form of love. He stirred the desire in my heart to do something great with my life by serving others, investing deeply in virtuous friendships, and doing the Father's will just like He did. I am so humbled and extremely grateful to be on the missions team with FOCUS.
