Where I serve

I serve as a first year missionary at the University of Massachusetts Amherst! I was born and raised in Miami, Florida, so you can imagine my surprise to be moved up to the cold Northeast. Where the Lord calls, I will answer! I am so excited to be serving up there and getting the chance to really change lives through my witness. 

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ, especially men. I have a passion for men's ministry because I have seen firsthand the isolation and emptiness of men on the college campus. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus.

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
