Where I serve

I am serving as a first year missionary at the University of Minnesota Duluth. Go Dawgs!

My Story

At only 15 years old I decided to convert to Catholicism. This turning point left me on fire for the Lord, and I wanted to do everything I could to serve Him. I was serving Him alone however, nearly all of my friends were atheists and I had never known of any youth groups at the local church. Although I tried to stoke the flame myself, my work was in vain because I had no community to uplift me, no iron to sharpen me. This, in-turn, caused me to nearly lose my faith only three years after my conversion.

In my freshman year of college, a now good friend of mine— who if I didn’t know better I would say was my guardian angel— invited me to the Newman Center. Desperate for friends in a city where I was a stranger I accepted. Arriving I found something strange, people who earnestly desired my presence with no conditions, people who wanted to know and share life with me for just being a person. Never in my life had I experienced such fellowship and love before.

Without a second thought I joined a FOCUS bible study and shortly after I was brought into discipleship where I have since learned to become the person God and I always wanted me to be. I have also since led my own bible study and led many men in becoming better disciples of Jesus Chirst through daily accountability and community outreach like visiting the homeless. These experiences have filled me with life like nothing before and I cannot wait to reach many more students!

Your Impact

God has not just called me to be on mission, but all of us, including you! Your support not only allows me to reach each student effectively and impactfully but also brings you into my mission too. God desires, through this mission, to bring more souls to heaven and deeper our connection to Him. Your prayers deepen your conversion and give me spiritual strength every day, and your financial support allows me to be more present in the lives of the students. Both of these things allow you to enter into mission with me and change the lives of many future saints! God Bless!
