Darby Wilson

Heyo!! My name is Darby and I am a FOCUS missionary! Thanks for clicking on my page!

Where I serve

Ever since I came back to my Faith my sophomore year of a college there has been a quote that has really stood out to me. St. Mother Teresa has said “The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty — it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There’s a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.” There is a deep poverty on the college campus, students just want to be known and loved. I am so thankful for the opportunity to serve with FOCUS to help students to come to know their identity as beloved children of the King of Kings. This year I am excited to be serving the students at University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

My Story

My greatest desire is for the world to come to understand their identity and the love that is offered to them free of any conditions. When I began my journey in college, the world was offering so many different things to fill this God shaped hole in my life. Relationships, parties, my grades, were all things that the college world had to offer, and some point all of those things came crashing down around me. I was faced with the reality that none of those things actually made me feel whole, but left me feeling more empty. I decided to go on a retreat and I met a FOCUS missionary who started to introduce me to Jesus and His abundant love for me personally. She walked with me in this journey deeper into Christ, and from that for the first time I felt this hole starting to be filled. After years walking this journey growing deeper in relationship with Christ, I am so excited to get the opportunity to walk deeper into my relationship with Him and to bring people with me into His great and abundant love. 

Your Impact

Apart of being a missionary with FOCUS is the commitment to rely on the spiritual and financial support of my mission partners. I have been so incredibly blessed with the most amazing people who will journey with me as I serce on campus!  If you are interested in joining me in this mission, 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.
