Do not be afraid. Do not be satisfied with mediocrity. Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch. St. John Paul II

Where I serve

For my fifth year serving as a FOCUS missionary I am continuing at Northwest Missouri State in Maryville, MO! This year I am so blessed to have 6 members of my team, because both men are married! I am so excited for what Jesus plans to do with us on campus this year!

My Story

As missionaries, we take plenty of time practicing telling our story of how Christ came into our life and transformed us. I have many times told the story of a missionary coming to one of my first pre-season practices at Benedictine College to invite us to bible study. But I have come to learn in my time as a missionary, that my story and my conversion happens again with every yes I say to the Lord. These yeses, especially when I already feel I have given Him everything, is what has healed me, changed me, and transformed me. My story is truly that I am a very broken young woman, and beyond my many many weaknesses I have been gifted the joy of being a missionary for Jesus Christ. In this call of mission, I have met Jesus. In my organization, in the missionaries, in my team, and most especially in my students, the heart of Jesus is teaching me about Himself. I have found the great love of my life, and my story is that I come to know him more every day in life as a FOCUS missionary. And luckily, as I continue my journey to the kingdom, he has blessed me to lead many others with me into heaven. I hope to continue as a FOCUS missionary for as long as the Lord keeps me here and asks me to be his missionary and would love to walk with you in it. 

Your Impact

Every day souls are being lost, and every day souls on the college campus are being corrupted and pulled away from Jesus. You desire to go and share the gospel with them, invest in them, and help them find true joy. But your circumstances may prevent you from going on this mission. By supporting me financially you receive every reward of being a missionary. You are the heart of my mission, I simply have the joy of being your hands and feet. I offer myself and radically give all of my time to these college students while living on donations from my monthly support team.
