Where I serve

God has called me to serve as a FOCUS missionary at the University of Colorado in Boulder. You'll typically find me hanging out with students at the gym, on the ski slopes, or at St. Thomas Aquinas. I have been beyond blessed to have encountered Christ during my time in college and would to tell you about it!  

My Story

Although I was born and raised Catholic, attended Mass every weekend, and received all of my sacraments, I always felt like church was something to check off the list. However, God still held the pencil while writing my story and lead me to Texas A&M University. At Texas A&M, I slowly started hanging out around the Catholic student center and saw a true joy that radiated from the people who would regularly be around. This joy made me curious and I wanted it, but didn’t know where to find it. Through the grapevine, I heard about LifeTeen summer camps that students would work at during their time in college, so I decided to apply.

Y’all, Jesus used camp to CHANGE EVERYTHING. As a LifeTeen summer missionary, we attended Mass and a Holy half hour for 45(ish) days in a row. It was the first time I really let the Lord take charge of my life. Jesus changed the way I looked, felt and thought about things. I no longer wanted to chase things of this world, but things of salvation.

Upon returning to campus for my final year of college, I was quickly introduced to the FOCUS missionaries. At this point in my life, I had a relationship with Christ, but the missionaries really showed me how to live it out in accordance with the Gospel. Since my conversion, I have never had more peace, freedom, and authentic friendships that help me run towards the kingdom of God. I truly believe that being a FOCUS missionary is the most important thing I can do with my time because Jesus wants us all to experience his life changing and everlasting love.

Your Impact

When Jesus called me to join FOCUS, he called me to live radically. As a missionary, I am required to fully rely on spiritual and financial support from mission partners. I would like to invite you to become one of my mission partners as we team up to build Gods kingdom and give students the opportunity to experience life to the fullest. If you are interested in partnering with me or would like to know more about what I do, please do not hesitate to contact me. It would be a privilege and honor to partner with you in this mission.
