Hey, I’m Ally! Thanks for visiting my page, God bless!

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colorado! You’ll typically find me hanging out at a coffee shop or hammocking around campus. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life, and I’d love to share it with you!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead those around me to Christ, especially those whom I encounter on campus. My life has been transformed by Jesus as I have received incredible love, joy, and mercy from Him. I have been convicted to share that love and joy with those around me, that they would also come to have a personal relationship with Jesus.

Going into college, I struggled to find my path, feeling unloved and unseen. As I came to personally know Jesus through the amazing Catholic community and FOCUS missionaries on campus, I learned what true friendship looks like, and I found my value and identity in being a beloved daughter of God . I desire to share the life I have found in Christ with students who might be feeling the same way I did.

My first two years as a missionary on campus continued to deepen my relationship with Christ. My heart has expanded in love not just for my students, but for all around me to know Jesus and His love for them. I have become convicted in my call to give my life to Christ in this way, helping Him to make invitations to the kingdom, where He has prepared many rooms without reserve and would love nothing more than to have them filled for eternity.

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. The Father has showed His character in being a loving provider through your generosity. 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.
