Blake Magill

Hello! I’m Blake Magill. This is my second year serving as a FOCUS missionary.

Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 

1 Cor 1:20

Where I serve

I am proud to be serving at the birthplace of FOCUS, Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas!

Now, I strive to be a Catholic in every aspect of my life, living out my faith in both word and action.

Your Impact

It is my dream to be able to do for others what has been done for me! However, I cannot do this alone. With your support, I am able to go out and make a difference in other young people lives, and bring them into relationship with Jesus Christ. However we go about it, this is our highest calling as Catholics.
