Where I serve

I'm blessed to be a part of Lord's mission at the University of South Dakota this year. You'll typically find me hanging out at the university cafeteria and the Newman Center. Jesus changed my life and I'd enjoy sharing what happened  sometime with you!

My Story

As a young Catholic I grew up learning about God and the faith, in High school and college I found most of the world viewed God as comfort made up in our imagination. This much I knew was not true just based on miracles but learned that their had to be more and on the campus of NAU I encountered Christ in a personal way, my desire to know Christ and make Him known grew much at this time, until finally through hearing his call in prayer I recognized him calling me to his mission.  I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best way of reaching the world. Humility, friendship and prayer - It was not through big screens, TVs and ipods. To be Catholic is not a title or a group of people I ascribed too, but growing process of coming to know Christ and our Father and receiving their Spirit in the most intimate way.

I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus. Many hear his message and believe they are done and need do nothing more. Few are those who move to leave the lifestyle of the world, open their hearts to the Father and set the world ablaze!

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the Holy Spirit. In a particular way, to entrust my well being to him through the 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. Those who support me have enable me to travel to distance places, Pueto Rico to New Jersey and reach dozens of young men who have in turn lead others back to Christ! If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I'd be honored to share more with you about the mission.
