“have you seen with the eyes of your soul how He looks at you with love? Ask for the grace, He is longing to give it…”

St. Mother Teresa

Where I serve

Hello, my name is Sarah Deiters, and I go by Lillie. I am from Woodstock, Georgia. I have been blessed with the opportunity to serve as a Greek missionary at the University of Alabama Huntsville this upcoming school year. I am so grateful for this once in a lifetime opportunity to encounter students on the college campus and guide them in their walk with Christ.

My Story

I first encountered Christ in a very personal way during a retreat my junior year of high school. I gave a very small “yes” to go on a weekend retreat, and God blessed me abundantly. During adoration, I finally understood for the very first time that I needed to put God at the very center of my life, and He was the meaning and purpose for everything. I made a promise to God that night that I would strive to put Christ above all things everyday no matter the cost.

My life began to radically change. God took my small “yes” that night and transformed my heart, slowly, one invitation at a time. During college, I encountered the FOCUS missionaries at my campus and was taught practically what it looked like to live a Christian life. I learned that the Christian life was really possible! I learned how to grow in prayer, frequent the sacraments, and began to form authentic friendships with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.

I began to have a strong desire to share with others what I had found. I realized that everyone deserves to know that love Himself has chosen them to be His! I am so excited for this next chapter with Christ and cannot wait to see what He has in store for my mission partners, my students, and myself.

Your Impact

I have said “yes” to be fully dependent on my mission partners and God for my financial support to be able to give all of myself to this mission. Together, we can be a part of Christ’s Great Commission to spread the message of the Gospel starting at the college campus. We are all invited to partake in God’s great mission to bring all people to Himself. I would be honored to have you join me on this mission, and together, with God’s grace alone, we can make disciples of all nations.
