Hey, I’m Sarah. I’m a FOCUS Missionary! ☺

Where I serve

As I enter my first year of mission, God has called me to serve at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. ROLL DOGS! I am excited to encounter the women on campus and walk with them, alongside the Lord.

My Story

Growing up, I went to Catholic school and mass every weekend with my family. However, I did not prioritize God in my life; He was the first to go when my schedule filled up. After transferring colleges (twice), I encountered FOCUS during my sophomore year at Loras College which completely transformed my life!

It was through a personal invitation to join a bible study, that I began to receive and understand my identity as a beloved daughter of God. I realized my worth did not come from my grades, achievements, or fulfilling the expectations of others. And amidst the struggles and challenges, God was patiently waiting at the door of my heart. “Will you let me love you?” 

Over the last year, I have grown in deeper relationship with the Lord and have been in continuous surrender to His will for my life. In doing so, I have felt His gentle tug on my heart to give Him a greater “yes” by serving Him & bringing others into relationship with Him. Every day there is a spiritual battle in which souls are at stake.

Your Impact

When I gave my “yes” to the Lord and the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners like you! If you would like to accompany me on this journey and be a part of the work the Lord is doing on campus, please email me at [email protected] and we can schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to get to know you and share this mission with you. 

Some give by going to the missions. Others go by giving to the missions. Without both, there are no missions. ~ Saint Teresa of Calcutta
