Emily Ambrosio

Hey! I’m Emily, and I’m a FOCUS missionary!

Where I serve

After serving my first two years as a missionary at the University of Idaho, I am blessed to currently serve on the University College Dublin (UCD) campus in Dublin, Ireland!

My Story

My story is one of Jesus’ consistent and tender pursuit of my heart. Although I grew up Catholic, I always longed to learn more about what it means to live out the faith and who Jesus Christ is to me. After serving in high school youth ministry throughout high school and my first two years of college, I found myself always going back to old habits after encountering Jesus on a retreat, and placing my identity in things that would never satisfy. Once I transferred to San Diego State University for my last two years of college, I began to see the Father’s great love for me through being in a FOCUS Bible study, entering into fellowship at the Newman center at SDSU, and having FOCUS missionaries walk with me and call me higher. Jesus Christ soon revealed His great love and mercy for me and how my deepest identity is being a daughter of God. As I began to live from this identity, I saw the abundance of life He promises each and every one of us and had the freedom to love others authentically.

Having said yes to His call to serve Him as a FOCUS missionary, I desire to intentionally walk with students as other missionaries did for me to show them the goodness of the Lord and His unconditional love for every soul. As Jesus continues to deepen my relationship with Him, He reveals His burning love for souls, and places that burning love in my heart as well. I pray that I may be led by the Holy Spirit in being the hands and feet of Christ and facilitating that encounter with Him. It is such an honor to walk with college age women and witness the Lord changing their lives and hearts. I invite you to join me in my mission of sharing the Gospel with college students and inviting them to walk with Christ.

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. Send me an email to connect at [email protected].

I look forward to being on mission for Jesus Christ with you! God bless!
