Where I serve

University of Wisconsin Stevens Point

My Story

I was born and raised in Kampala, Uganda, by a devout Catholic family. The seeds of faith were planted in my heart from a young age and now, I have felt a profound calling in my heart-a gentle yet persistent whisper urging me to serve, connect, and spread Christ’s light in both unique and impactful ways. I sought to elevate my life and career by pursuing further education. This ambition led me to Michigan Tech, where I recently earned a master’s degree in Environmental Engineering. The past 18 months have been very challenging and deeply transformative, revealing God’s profound love for me. The overwhelming generosity of those I’ve met these past 18 months is like nothing I have seen before.

It was at Michigan Tech that I first encountered FOCUS Missionaries. These youthful, vibrant, and selfless individuals greatly influenced my personal growth. Bible studies, discipleship with Matthew Henry and  observing the missionaries unwavering dedication to service not only expanded my worldview but also deepened my faith.

For everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded. Now, I have chosen to dedicate the next chapter of my life to missionary work. While it may seem unconventional to pause a traditional career path, I am committed to using my gifts and talents to build God’s kingdom and inspire others. I believe this season of service will foster spiritual growth in myself and everyone I meet while developing invaluable skills like empathy, self-reflection, communication, and problem-solving. I am eager to see the results of our mission at University of Wisconsin stevens Point as we are shaped and prepared for lives of purpose, service and impact.

Your Impact

Joining FOCUS is not merely a career shift; it is an embrace of God’s plan for me-to use my skills, passions, and spiritual gifts to make a tangible difference in the world. I will be serving on a college campus, reaching out to students who are seeking meaning, community, and genuine friendships. Through discipleship, community building, and sharing, I aim to light sparks of change that can grow into beacons of hope and transformation.

This mission, while rewarding, comes with its challenges and sacrifices. Leaving a conventional career path, I am stepping into a life where faith takes precedence, and the success is measured not in profits or promotions, but in lives touched and hearts changed. I believe this journey will not only mold me into a more empathetic, effective leader but also deepen my own faith and understanding of the divine.

Your support is critical in this mission. By joining me as a mission partner, you are not just supporting a cause; you are investing in the transformation of lives. Your contributions will help cover essential expenses such as living costs, and ministry activities, enabling me to focus fully on the mission at hand.

Together, we can:

  • Foster environments where faith and understanding flourish.
  • Mentor and guide students, helping them to navigate the complexities of college life with faith as their compass.
  • Organize workshops, Bible studies, and community service projects that cultivate skills, leadership, and spiritual growth.
