Heyyo! Welcome to my page!

This is no time to be ashamed of the Gospel. It is time to preach it from the rooftops. Do not be afraid to break out of comfortable and routine modes of living in order to take up the challenge of making Christ known in the modern metropolis

Where I serve

I will be spending my first year as a missionary in Providence, RI at Brown University! Where God has called me to serve the college students.

I am looking forward to be at Brown to work with new students and grow in deeper friendship with them. Please pray for us!

My Story

Moving into my freshman year of college, I viewed God as someone who I had to work for. The more I performed the more God loved me. Having this perception of God was tiring and left me running away from God whenever I failed. Through invitations from the missionaries on my campus to dive into prayer, I realized God desired me as I was. God was not just a task-maker and a set of moral codes. He is a person, a person who desires a deep friendship with us.

“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” – John 15:14

This realization rocked my world and has inspired me to go out and share this good news with others.

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.
