I am serving back in Ireland for my 10th year with FOCUS and my 7th in Ireland. It is a gift to be back here and see our evangelization efforts continue to grow. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing many conversions during my time here. Staunch atheists to daily Mass goers who pray everyday. Depressed and anxious all the time to happy and content in the Church. Seven of our students have become missionaries and seven have joined the seminary! I believe the Lord is blessing our efforts abundantly right now and it’s only the beginning.
By God’s grace, I met a FOCUS missionary my sophomore year at The University of Texas, and that man challenged my life and what I was putting my trust in. Through this challenge I experienced a deep conversion of heart that took a couple of years but led me to a beautiful understanding of my faith and a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and The Church.
In my time that I was involved with FOCUS at UT, I was and still am constantly humbled by the love the Lord has poured out on so many people through this amazing ministry.
In a world that is surrounded by darkness and lost hope, FOCUS brings a vision of light, joy and love to people who might not experience this vision anywhere else. Your impact is eternal. Students here in Ireland are having life changing experience due to us having the freedom to serve them full time. Not only are they having these life-changing experiences but often times their families follow, and in the future the men I work with will be great husbands, dads, priests, doctors, lawyers, teachers, etc.. I humbly invite you to join me in my mission.
Thank you for visiting my personal funding page and considering partnering with me to help spread the gospel to the world by supporting me financially and praying for the students and the mission.
“Lastly, we cannot forget that evangelization is first and foremost about preaching the Gospel to those who do not know Jesus Christ or who have always rejected him. Many of them are quietly seeking God, led by a yearning to see his face, even in countries of ancient Christian tradition. All of them have a right to receive the Gospel. Christians have the duty to proclaim the Gospel without excluding anyone. Instead of seeming to impose new obligations, they should appear as people who wish to share their joy, who point to a horizon of beauty and who invite others to a delicious banquet. It is not by proselytizing that the Church grows, but ‘by attraction'”. –Joy of the Gospel by Pope Francis
