The Lord has placed me in the great state of Ohio at Wright State University, RAIDER UP! I am so excited to take on mission here and sharing life with the many people I encounter. The Lord and community are really important to me, and I cannot wait to experience them at Wright State! A few fun facts about me are I love basketball, I am a runner, and I have some mean dad jokes!
I have said yes to be an instrument for the Lord and He will use my help to bring His Love and Kingdom to those who I encounter. Throughout my life, I have always longed to receive the Lord’s ultimate love and the care He has for me as His son. Faith has been an important part of my life ever since high school, but with loneliness, non-Christ centered friends, and not understanding my Catholic faith, I was still searching for Him. I was finding myself living in deceit. I did not fully say yes to the Lord during that time.
When I was a Freshman at UW-La Crosse, I said yes to joining the Roncalli Newman Center and a FOCUS bible study and it transformed my life. I truly encountered the Lord through the Holy Eucharist and Confession. As I grew stronger in my faith and understanding, I said yes to the Lord’s gift to Christ-centered friendships. These friendships built me into the man I am today that is willing to fight for the Lord and being a shoulder to lean on. It propelled me to say yes to the Lord’s call to leadership both in guiding His children closer to Him and reminding them they are beloved sons and daughters of God.
I was that student who did not have many friends, that did not trust the Lord fully. I was the student who was trying to find fulfillment my own way versus the Lord’s way. However, by the Lord’s Grace, I am the student who said yes to help bring the lost sheep back to the Good Shepherd. The Lord is calling me to proclaim the truth that His sons and daughters are worth so much to Him, and He longs to build them up into the strong men and women they were created to be.
It is a gift to take on this mission for the Lord and I cannot do this alone. I want to share this gift with the world. With your yes, you will join me on this journey to seek souls and share the Good News of the Lord with those I encounter. Your yes can transform so many lives to Christ and help them experience the love of Christ possibly for the first time. The Lord has so much to give, and He misses His lost children, will you join me in this mission to help bring them back?
