Hi! My name is Anna and I’m from Vancouver, B.C.

I study Behavioural Neuroscience at Simon Fraser University (SFU) and I am in my 3rd year. Fun fact: I was born in Brazil and I can speak Portuguese.

I met Catholic Christian Outreach at SFU in my 2nd year while I was looking for a Christian Catholic club after a recent coming back to the faith. The student missionary leaders convinced me to sign up for a faith study, a six-week program to learn and discover God in a personally challenging way with a small group of participants. I was hesitant, but I ended up going due to the leaders being so sweet in reaching out to me.

The community of students that I found at CCO really inspired me to develop my faith beyond my expectations. I finally understood the Gospel message simply and clearly, something that many Christians, to my surprise actually do not understand yet. I was inspired to lead and grow as a missionary on a University campus after seeing the need to help people know the ultimate relationship that Jesus wants with them.

Since then, I became a student missionary on my campus (now leading faith studies to others), I joined the executive CCO team at SFU, and I got the wonderful opportunity to go on a mission trip to New York City in 2019 with CCO to serve the poor, share the Gospel message, and live in community with the Franciscan Friars.

Going on a mission was SO influential and life-changing that I had to apply to go again! In Belize, we will be partnering with different ministries in parishes, as they seek to become more evangelistic, so as to push back against the growing secular influence that we see in so many places around the world. I am SO excited to go to Belize and encounter the people who need to hear the Gospel message and be surrounded by missionaries who can lead them to encounter God.

I would really appreciate YOU to be apart of this mission through your financial support and prayers as I fundraise the cost of this mission trip ($3600, not including airfare to our location). Thank you!

God Bless,
Anna Guze
