Hey! My name’s Emily. I’m a FOCUS missionary.IMG 8128

Where I serve

For my second year of mission, God has called me to serve college students at The University of Oklahoma. Boomer Sooner! I am so excited to get to walk with the students at OU.

My Story

I have been raised Catholic but it was not until the end of college that I understood what this meant. Throughout high school and my first year of college, I put my identity into my grades, my social life, and sports. I was going to school at The University of Colorado Boulder and was convinced these things would bring me happiness, but I was wrong. When I was a sophomore in college I started to be involved with the Catholic Center and saw people have a true joy that I had never experienced before. Through FOCUS bible studies and missionaries, I was able to find my identity as a daughter of God, and my life was transformed.

After seeing what this was doing in my life, I knew I wanted to be serious about my faith and make Jesus the center of life. As I have done this a desire to share Jesus with other has grown which has led me to be a FOCUS missionary.  As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. Jesus has transformed my life and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus example to find the best way to reach the world. I cannot wait to see the different souls I will encounter on campus.

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. 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.
