God has called me to serve college students at Georgia Southern University. Go Eagles! In our small, cozy town of Statesboro, you can usually find me playing spikeball on campus with students, at a coffee shop, or at our Catholic student center! Jesus has been transforming my life in crazy ways, and I have some pretty cool stories I’d love to share with you sometime! 🙂
After graduating from high school, I was exhausted from going through the motions of doing all the extracurriculars, striving for perfect grades, and yet still never feeling satisfied with my performance. As I entered my first year of college at Baylor University, I had this great desire for something more, but I didn’t know what exactly I was looking for.
Since I was raised Catholic, I went to Sunday mass the first week of classes at our Newman center, and was blessed to meet some of my greatest friends (including my future roommate, who is now also a FOCUS missionary). These friendships and the FOCUS missionaries at Baylor led to me joining a Bible study, where I was shown Christ’s unconditional love for me, and His desire for a personal relationship with me! In the next four years as I pursued my psychology degree, I experienced the peace that comes with the knowledge that you are completely and utterly beloved by the Father.
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. Every college student is searching for the love of Christ, whether they know it or not. 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. I’ve been constantly amazed by the different souls I’ve encountered on campus.
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 as I serve on campus. 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.
