I am a third year missionary, and after serving two year at Texas State University the Lord has called me to move to the University of South Carolina! The Lord has blessed me abundantly (John 10:10) in my time at Texas State and my heart is filled with great joy and excitement to continue following Him to serve in a new place.
Like many students, I struggled holding on to and growing in my faith at the beginning of college. I have always loved the Catholic Church, but I had never really pursued my own personal relationship with Jesus.
During the Advent season of my junior year, I encountered the person of Jesus through daily prayer with scripture and reflecting on Mary’s journey through Advent. Everyday Jesus revealed something new to me and transformed my heart in so many beautiful ways. He continues to draw me closer to Him and invites me daily into deeper relationship with Him.
When I found out about FOCUS I was beyond excited to know there were other people my age that are pursuing this same daily devotion to living out relationship with Christ. I experienced so much joy and love from each person I met through FOCUS and started to really understand how important having faith based community is for us. I want nothing more than to help lead other students to experiencing the deep joy that comes from living as a disciple of Jesus and allowing Him to love them fully through His Church and the people He places in their life.
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.
