Where I serve
Originally from Flagstaff, Arizona and alumnus of Northern Arizona University, go Lumberjacks! I am in my sixth year as a missionary with the international Missions team - sending 155 mission trips to close to 50 countries come 2020. My team of 16 will help serve those missionaries on college campuses to encounter and share the Gospel all over the world. Check out the impact of Peru mission trips from spring break 2019:
After three years of serving on college campuses in the West, I have been on the Missions team these past two years to enable authentic encounters between college students and the poor. With my unique role I have lived and served on-the-ground in Lima, Perú to support programs with Movimiento de Vida Cristiana.
In college, studying nursing, faith was deserted to pursue
what I believed would bring personal happiness. This led to superficial
friendships, decreased motivation to pursue passions and a weakened moral
sense. A personal invitation to a FOCUS conference called SEEK in 2013 allowed
God to reveal that He wanted to provide the greatest joy found in life, a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. By
pursuing faith and seeing how the Lord wanted to walk next to me in my life I
have been able to create strong friendships with those that push me to be a
better person, grown in passion to enjoy each moment to the fullest and have
rediscovered who I am through the love of God. The Lord desires to grow in
relationship with each of us and I experience a continual transformation that I
wish to share with students through mission trips
The Lord has proven through my experiences of nursing and faith that sharing the Gospel is needed more than ever, especially in the college-aged. I cannot tell you how EXCITED I am to be joining the Missions team, sharing in fellowship with teams on-the-ground in Peru! Our job as missionaries is not to be the change created in students’ lives for Christ, rather the opportunity for Christ to be known and transform lives through the relationship we form with them. The Lord truly wants to be a part of your life, my life, everyone’s life! Join me this year in making it the best yet!
This mission has only been made possible by the generosity of family and friends that have allowed me to be on campus through their support. Prayerfully consider joining me financially on this journey to change the college culture.
