Where I serve
God has called me to serve Christ at Stephen F Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. Christ radically changed my life and continues to surprise and bless me as He leads me in this journey we call Life! I'd love to share my journey with you. :)
Born in Brazil in a family of four siblings, my parents and I immigrated to the U.S to pursue a better future. Little did they know
that we would find something much greater than the American dream; we found
Christ and His church! When I was a reluctant and skeptical sophomore teenager
in high school, God reached down and touched my cold indifferent heart and gave
it life. Never have I experienced such love and joy. Since then I have been
striving to live my life as a true disciple of Christ and to bring the joy of the Gospel to other young people. God has blessed me in so
many ways throughout this journey of life that I could likely spend hours if
not days describing them.
One of the most recent blessings has come in the form of the
call to share in Jesus' mission; to bring students into a real and intimate
relationship with Christ and His church and to make them true disciples. What
an amazing and humbling call! I never thought it was possible for me to serve the
kingdom of God in this way! In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to
meet us on our level, taking on our humanity to raise it to divinity in
Himself. I look to Jesus’ own example in reaching the world to find the best
method of reaching the world. It is amazing to see how Christ is transforming
the lives and hearts of students!
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.
