Elizabeth Placencia

Hi there, my name is Ellie and I am a second year FOCUS missionary!

Where I serve

I am a first year missionary at the University of Dallas! Go Crusaders! 

My Story

I grew up in Missouri and graduated from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona! Throughout my time at GCU, Jesus was continuously pulling on my heart to seek Him even deeper. What had originally started as a desire to begin a new, exciting adventure in a new state transitioned to the deep desire to share how much better a life with Jesus is than a life of this world, especially in college. Jesus walked so closely with me throughout my years in Arizona, teaching me how to evangelize and how to say yes to His call. By 2021, I made the decision to become a full-time FOCUS missionary, wherever He desired to send me!

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.
