Hello! My name is Emma Mete, and I am a second-year Concurrent Education student at Brock University in St. Catharines. I grew up in Welland, Ontario with my parents, two younger sisters and my extended Italian family!

I was raised a practicing Catholic and have been an active member in my parish through Youth Ministry and the liturgy. The summer before entering my first year of university, I attended a Steubenville Youth conference, and it was there I first felt Jesus calling me to a deeper relationship with Him, however I was too afraid to answer that call. This past summer, I attended another Steubenville conference, and it was during Adoration that I finally surrendered my heart to Jesus upon hearing the words “be not afraid”.

Since answering this call, many aspects of my life have changed; one of the most important being my encounter and involvement with Catholic Christian Outreach at my campus. After participating in the Discovery faith study and putting Christ at the centre of my life, I have gone on to lead faith studies myself, all while Jesus continues to reveal more of Himself to me through prayer and the CCO support system at my campus.

In January, I felt called again to further my relationship with Christ; this took the form of a call to serve as a missionary in the CCO Scotland Mission. I am so honoured and excited to participate in this incredible opportunity of bringing Christ’s love to Scotland in May 2019. Through the countless personal miracles that God has enacted in my life, it is my hope to challenge others to “be not afraid” and surrender to Christ, just as He called and continues to call me to do each day.

It is my prayer that you will support me on this mission through a tax-deductible donation and of course, your prayers for myself and the entire Scotland mission. I thank you in advance for your generosity, and may God continue to bless you!

We lead evangelization missions around the world.
