Where I serve
This is my fourth year serving as a FOCUS Missionary! I am the current Team Director at University of California, Los Angeles. Being a missionary the last three years has been one of the greatest joys of my life and I am so excited to continue serving the Lord in this way.
Being a missionary has been a great way for me to respond to God's call. I am confident in his plan for me and merely desire to follow him to wherever He leads me. My hope for my time as a missionary is to be able to lead others into an intimate relationship with Jesus, so that they too can know just how amazing His love is. I was born and raised Catholic, and have always heard about how, "Jesus loves you" but never really felt what that meant. It was just another overused saying that I would hear every Sunday homily. Not until college, when a FOCUS missionary really walked with me in my faith and showed me what it meant to have a real relationship with Jesus did I experience the very real and transformative effects of Christ's love through his Church and the Sacraments.
As a FOCUS missionary, I am called to serve students on college campuses. But I'm not called to do that alone. I need your help as well. We are called to rely on each other as brothers and sisters in order to accomplish the plans that God has set before us. I ask that if this mission is something that speaks to your heart, that you pray and consider helping fund me so that we can change hearts together. Nothing I do on campus is a result of my own merit, but rather a collaborative effort between myself and you on my support team. Without you, and without Christ, I can't do anything.
