“In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?”

– John 14:2

Where I serve

The Lord has called me to serve at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas! As a full-time missionary I am blessed to serve with my team in order to encounter and serve the students through bible studies, discipleship, and fellowship. I am so excited to get to share life with these students and grow in love for the Lord together!

My Story

Through the grace of the Father, I am blessed to say that I was raised in a beautiful Catholic family in San Antonio, Texas. Although I found my faith growing through going to youth group, retreats, and summer camps, it wasn’t until my time at Texas A&M where I realized the true desires of my heart. This desire was to be fully known, loved, and filled with joy that only the Father could provide. Through the witness of life-giving friendships which entered my life during my time at St. Mary’s Catholic Center, I could tell that there was something they had that I deeply wanted. This was an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. As I began to get involved in bible studies and many other organizations through St. Mary’s, the Lord softened my heart to know what love truly means – sacrifice. As the Lord transformed the depth of heart, my desire to help show others how loved they are grew. I knew that full sacrifice for the Lord through mission was something I yearned to do. Through a multitude of opening and closing of doors and listening to how the Lord consistently was asking me “do you trust me?”, I am so excited to now get to walk down the road that will lead to what I can only pray is my own and others sanctification through this mission!

Your Impact

As I enter into mission, I am truly learning what full reliance and trust in our abundant Father means. One way in which I am growing in this trust is through having said yes to fundraising my entire mission budget. The Lord is good and desires to give in abundance. If you are interested in partnering with me or hearing about my story and mission, please let me know of the best way to reach you. I would love to schedule an appointment with you and work together to fulfill the Great Commission through this mission with you!
