Where I serve

God has called me back to serve my 2nd year at Auburn University! War Eagle! I am excited to continue what I love doing most – bringing the love and truth of the Gospel to the college campus.

My Story

I was born and raised in a good Catholic family. They raised me well and taught me that “The world’s ways are not God’s ways”, yet I found myself believing the lies the world taught me. I believed performing well in my academic and athletic endeavors would fulfill me and my identity was found there. However, I was empty in many ways. God was always a part of my life, but never the center of it. I noticed this during my first year at Baylor and desired to make God the center of my life. There, I learned the importance of having Christ at the center of my life and truly living for Him. My life was changed thanks to FOCUS missionaries and friends at St. Peter’s. I learned what true Christian fellowship looked like, how to receive the gift of God’s friendship, and how to love others the way Christ first loved us. As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all souls toward Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel.
