Where I serve
This is my third year as a FOCUS missionary, and my first and second year I served at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. This year, God has called me to serve students at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa!
When I was in high school I started to practice my faith more fully
after attending a retreat before Confirmation. It was on that retreat
that God helped me to realize that He did not simply give me a set of
rules to follow for their own sake, but through showing me His
commandments, God wanted me to know His love.
In college I was
blessed in growing closer to God with the help of a great community of
faith. I want every college student to have the opportunity to know,
love, and serve God on their campuses and in the world, and to know the
abundant life that He offers.
As my relationship with God has
grown He has given me a fuller understanding of what living in His love
means. In discussing His relationship with the Father, Jesus says, "I
tell you this so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete"
(John 15:11). What I hope for college students is that through being
introduced to a life of faith, or through growing in their faith, they
will be able to experience more fully the joy that comes from Christ. I
hope that students can learn how to integrate their faith into their
daily lives in their relationships, school work, involvement in
organizations on campus, and all that they do, and in this way be God's
light in the world so that others may come to know Him. Through FOCUS,
they can learn to do just that, and then take this into their lives
beyond the college campus.
As a FOCUS missionary, I rely on your prayers and financial support to
be able to do this work! I invite you to partner with me in the mission
to serve students on college campuses, so that they can grow in love of
God through His grace, share the Gospel with others through conversation
and through living their daily lives, and then help others to do this
as well. Thank you so much and may God bless you!
