Hello! My name is Morgan, and I’m a FOCUS missionary serving as the team director at Angelo State University in San Angelo, TX. In the first chapter of Acts, Jesus tells his disciples they will “be [His] witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” We have yet to reach the ends of the earth with the gospel, but I am confident San Angelo is along the way!
In the spring of 2017, Jesus encountered me in a new way.
As a freshman at Texas A&M University, I felt uprooted and unsure of who I was. Far-removed from almost everyone and everything I knew, I remember questioning if my life had any deeper meaning, hoping there was something more than just getting through school and landing a job.
Through the people I began to meet, however, the Lord drew me deeper into my faith. As my friends invited me to pray and attend Mass, Jesus made it clear that I was seeking something eternal: Him.
My own encounter with the immense love of God and the realization that He holds this same love for every soul spurred me to say yes to serving as a FOCUS missionary. As a missionary, I have the gift of walking alongside students, inviting them to pray, attend Mass and ultimately, know Jesus, like my friends at Texas A&M did for me.
I would be honored to have you join me on this mission! Just as the disciples would not have been able to spread the Gospel without those who provided for their material needs, I would not be able to serve our students without those who partner with me through their financial giving and prayers. Like drops of water make their way from spring to sea, we make our way home to heaven together.
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.
