Our Story

For so much of my life, I have grasped after happiness and tried to lay claim to the empty promises the world wanted to give me. For so long have I struggled with my identity, my worth, and my purpose. Through my encounter with Jesus Christ and my growth in relationship with Him, these struggles slowly began to fade away.

Life is still difficult; there’s no doubt about that. Just because I said “yes” to God doesn’t mean all of my problems magically disappeared. In fact, things have probably never been harder for me. Yet, at the same time, when has anything easy ever been worth it? The more difficult the challenges that I am faced with, the more I realize that God has equipped me to face my problems and that He is standing alongside me every step of the way.

Giving myself to the Lord as a missionary has been the biggest commitment of my life yet, and it has also been the greatest gift and joy yet. Every single day, I am able to encounter the love of God in a radical way, and I am able to lead other people to the same joy, love, and freedom. God has given me everything, and I desire nothing more than to give everything back to Him.


Your Impact

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.
