Where I serve
God has called me to serve college students at Texas State University!
“If the devil can’t make you bad, he’ll make you busy. He
can persuade you to do lots of good things to prevent you from doing great
These words, spoken to me by a dear friend and FOCUS
missionary my freshman year at the University of Tennessee, struck me to the
core. For many years I sought fulfillment by trying to excel in
academics, leadership positions, and extracurriculars. I was on the path to
success but I was unfulfilled. Following this conversation, the Lord gradually
transformed my life by inviting me to radically surrender to Him. The more I
gave my time to Jesus, the more I discovered the truth in the words of St.
Augustine: “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless
until they rest in You.”
Resting in the Lord led me to discover the fullness of
Truth, Beauty, and Goodness in the Catholic Church. As a student, I learned the joy of sharing the Gospel and Christ’s Church with others. As a
missionary, it is a true gift to continue in this joy and witness many college students find their identity as sons and daughters of God and lead
their peers to encounter Jesus Christ also!
Please join me in fulfilling
the Great Commission to win souls for Christ and “make disciples of all
nations.” I found my identity and purpose through virtuous friendships with FOCUS
missionaries and student leaders, and I pray for grace and fortitude as the
Lord sends me on this mission. Your prayers and support will strengthen
this mission greatly and make it possible to win over college students in their
search for Truth at this critical time in their lives. Thank you so much in
advance, and know that your support will not go unappreciated!
