I’m Mariana, a graduating political science and commerce student at the University of British Columbia. I joined CCO in my first year; and since then I have and the opportunity to lead faith studies, participate in the first Honduras mission, and share my faith on-campus and with my community.

In 2012, my family and I immigrated to Vancouver from Mexico City. While it was not in my plans to go on any mission this year, because graduating is already stressful enough, God had a different plan for me. During Summit, God put the idea into my heart and now I am blessed enough to go back to my city and help bring others closer to Him. While I am still afraid, I know God has a plan for me and my “yes.”

In the words of Saint Pope John Paul II, “Have no fear of moving into the unknown. Simply step out fearlessly knowing that I am with you, therefore no harm can befall you; all is very, very well. Do this in complete faith and confidence.”

We lead evangelization missions around the world.
