As I start my first year on mission, I will be serving at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh! Go Titans!
I was born and raised Catholic, so my parents gave me the greatest gift I could ever ask for. Growing up in a family of 8 kids, there was never a dull moment and our faith was an essential element of how we lived. Even though I was blessed with this strong support system, it took me a while to truly choose the faith for myself. In high school and college, I began getting involved with youth group and campus ministry primarily because of the friends I made there.
Over time, my faith became more than a social activity. God used these friends as instruments to draw me into a personal relationship with Him. By going to Mass and Confession more frequently and spending time with Him in the Blessed Sacrament, I began to see that God is deeply in love with ME and desires a personal relationship with ME! What?!
I knew that I could not have come to understand this reality without the family, friends, and mentors God put in my life. I want to give that gift back and be an instrument for someone else to come to know the Love that is knocking on the door of their heart. No matter what they’ve done or how far they’ve strayed…He wants all of us. And it changes EVERYTHING!
I would love your prayers and support on campus this year! 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. By supporting me, we work hand-in-hand, both sacrificing our time and effort for the sake of sharing the Gospel with those who need to hear it most. If you are interested in partnering with me, please email me at [email protected] and let me know of the best way to reach you, and we can schedule an appointment. I would love to get to know you and hear your story. I would be honored to partner with you in this mission.
