I am so excited to be returning to the University of Missouri for my second year on mission! It has been the honor of a lifetime to serve the students at Mizzou and I know the Lord has big things in store for this coming year. Go Tigers!
FOCUS Team Mizzou: Luke, Val, Julia, Abby & Kip
As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. 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.
My favorite saint is St. Edith Stein (St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross :)). I like my coffee black, no cream or sugar. I broke my hip playing flag football in college, but thankfully, I stopped my opponent from scoring. Goodreads is my social media of choice. Belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist has radically changed my life and I love to talk about it. The first time I ate Indian food was while I was studying abroad in India. I’ve heard my most uniquely identifiable attribute is the sound of my laugh. The love and mercy of Jesus Christ have transformed me from the inside out; in thanksgiving, all I desire is to offer Him my heart!
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.
