I will be serving at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan during the Fall!
My Team: Kyle, Victor, Caryn, Teresa, and Jessica
I was baptized into the Catholic Church April 16th, 2022. I grew up with a catholic father and a protestant mother. I was given the offer to get baptized at 13 but for me it was only a choice between parents and I did not understand what I was passing up. I spent my life always longing for something, seeking to feel this void within my heart. My heart was like this well that I continued to pour whatever I could find into, and whatever I put into the well of my heart, it would always run dry. During the summer of 2021 was when I took a real good look at my life and where it was headed. It was then that God showed me what I had been seeking this whole time, and where I could find it. I understand that when I filled the well of my heart with love, it would remain full just a little bit longer than everything else. So I knew that it was love that I was seeking. I understand that I could find love in a perfect marriage, and I understood that to be one where God is at the center of the marriage. So, I had to center my life around Christ. In doing so I began RCIA, was baptized, and it was then that the well of my heart began to overflow with the love of the Holy Spirit, and the love I had been seeking my whole life, I had finally found. Ever since I gave the Lord my first yes, I have been saying yes to his call ever since!
When I answered God’s 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 feel free to reach out to me at [email protected] and please let me know of the best way to reach you. I’d be honored to share God’s mission with you!
