Where I serve

I serve at the University of California Las Angeles (UCLA). I am so excited to show students true freedom and a childlike lifestyle that may be new to the average college student. Here are my amazing teammates! IMG 0418

My Story

Live in each season as it passes and prepare yourself to find the things you were never looking for. My dad told me this growing up and it applies greatly to my work as a missionary. I have accepted the call to give my life towards spreading the Gospel both now as I work for FOCUS, and also as a lifelong commitment wherever life takes me and whatever season I may be in. I cannot rest knowing that a taste of Heaven can be brought to earth and that we have been given the gift of eternal paradise with our Father AND PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT IT. My brothers and sisters all over long for home and long to be in union with the love their hearts know is out there. This is why we MUST live to the fullest and join the fight for souls, to advance the kingdom of God.

My time in college has been exceptionally formative thanks to mentors and missionaries who’ve shown me what living for God looks like in prayer, in friendship, in duty, and in every interaction with another soul. I can attribute so much of the love and freedom I enjoy now to those that looked at me back then and guided me closer to our Lord. I must go out and give to others what I myself have received and show them that life is worth living and living to the fullest.IMG 1315 Original

Your Impact

God does not call us alone. Just as He has called me to this great mission he has put the desire on your heart to serve financially. Thank you for your contribution! You are the only reason I’m allowed to go out and be on mission in the first place. Every victory and every heart and every encounter is because your generosity paved the way for missionaries like me to go and make a difference in the lives of real people on campus.
