A Call To Mission

People often ask, "When did you decide to apply to become a FOCUS missionary?" The answer is when I was on a mission trip. As I crossed the muddy waters from the Dominican Republic to Haiti, I watched the natives bathe while their children splashed in the awful smelling, cholera-infected water. Careful not to touch the water for fear of sickness, I thought to myself, “These people don’t realize that they are swimming in infected waters.” I couldn’t help but wonder what my campus would look like if I placed a spiritual lens over my eyes. I suddenly saw myself and my own friends unknowingly swimming in dangerous, infected waters of hopelessness, confusion, and sin. Translating the physical poverty in the Dominican Republic to the spiritual poverty on my own college campus placed a sense of urgency and mission on my heart.

Serving on mission in the Dominican Republic my junior year of college
in December 2011 changed my heart. It was at this moment that I knew I was being called to serve Christ on a college campus


To serve on these missions I need
to raise $5,000. If you would like to give:
