Elijah Lundstrom

Hey! My name is Elijah, but you can call me Eli, too. I’m a FOCUS Missionary.

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Wayne State College in Wayne, NE! Go Cats! As a FOCUS missionary, I work with students to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ with the hopes of fulfilling His “Great Commission.”

My Story

I am incredibly excited to be serving the students at Wayne State College! A major turning point in my life was when I met a FOCUS missionary on campus during my sophomore year of college. God worked through the missionary I met to teach me how to live a Christ-centered life by praying with and listening to the Word of God in Sacred Scripture so that I could have a more radical encounter with Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. What used to be days of meaningless scrolling on my phone and nights of restless sleep turned into persistent attendance of daily Mass and nights of amazing and intimate prayer with our Lord! Spending time with the FOCUS missionary sparked an authentic friendship and a desire to bring others to know and love Jesus Christ just as I had, and that’s why I’m committed to help change the world for Jesus Christ through the life-long journey of growing in intimacy with Him and helping others encounter Him. After all, His final command to His disciples was: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…”

Your Impact

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.

“Some give by going to the missions. Others go by giving to the missions. Without both, there are no missions.” -Saint John Paul II
