I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples. – St. Teresa of Calcutta

Where I serve

I am blessed to be serving as a first-year missionary at the University of Florida. Go Gators! Please keep me, my team, and the students of UF in your prayers!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus 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’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world.

Your Impact

When I accepted the Lord’s call to serve as a FOCUS missionary, I was also invited to fully rely on God to provide for me financially and spiritually through the generosity and sacrifice of my mission partners. My mission partners are the reason I can dedicate all my time to sharing the hope, joy, and freedom of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and each partner journeys with me to minister to college students. If you are interested in hearing more about my story, my mission, and about FOCUS, please let me know the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I would be honored to share my mission with you.
