About me

Hey, my name is Daniel Villamil, welcome to my mission fundraising page. I am from Flatrock, Newfoundland and I am pursuing a degree in education at Memorial University of Newfoundland. I am currently on the Exec team for our Catholic club on campus. I have a wide range of interests from electronic music to sports.

I wasn’t fortunate enough to grow up Catholic. I have always felt that there had to be more to this world than what I have seen, but I just didn’t have the answers. One day walking though my university I met some students from the Catholic club on Campus. I remember being so excited signing up for something that I knew nothing about. From the moment I discovered God has a plan for us I was certain that Catholicism was for me. I learnt that Jesus desires to have an intimate relationship with all of us. At first, I felt like it was impossible to be close with Jesus, but the CCO missionaries assured me that it is possible and not as hard as I imagined.

Why do I want to be on Mission?

I want to go on mission because I understand how important it is to reach out to share Jesus with people. Here in Newfoundland I see how far many people are from God. It is not easy to bring people back to the faith, but it is worth the effort. In my time at Memorial, I have noticed how much of an impact I am capable of making. In my time I have seen the community grow beyond measures. I am excited about seeing how much of an impact Jesus can make for the people at World Youth Day and sharing it to others when I get back to campus. I am also excited to grow in my skills of reaching out to others who may feel far away from Jesus, letting them know that he has always been with them.

While Catholic Christian Outreach seeks to honour the expressed preference of each gift, I acknowledge that my gift is a gift to the ministry of Catholic Christian Outreach and will be used by Catholic Christian Outreach in a manner that it believes will best advance its charitable purposes. If my preference changes, it is my responsibility to inform Catholic Christian Outreach.

CCO is a registered Canadian charity (#13782 4363 RR0001) and income tax receipts are issued in February of each year.
