Hi there! I’m Sarah, and I’m currently a third year psychology student at Acadia University. I grew up in Fall River, Nova Scotia. Fun fact: I love Taylor Swift and coffee just slightly less than Jesus himself. I am excited beyond words to be travelling to Cameroon in May on mission with Catholic Christian Outreach.

At the Rise Up conference in Ottawa last year I felt a clear call inspired by the influence of Mother Teresa to spread the gospel in far away places and to experience the life of our Church in a culture very different from what I am used to. I gave my “yes” to Jesus to serve him wherever he called eight months before missions applications were released. That conviction to serve Jesus in the forgotten and destitute in our world grew stronger and more heartfelt over time. I felt the Lord calling me to Africa, which was confirmed when I saw that Cameroon was the home of a CCO Mission this year.

I’ve known and loved both Jesus and the Church since I was a little girl, but didn’t make the conscious choice to place him at the centre of my life until I was 17 at a Steubenville Youth Conference. Because of this decision my life has been more abundantly blessed than I could ever have asked for. I’ve witnessed how in choosing to follow Christ I’ve lost nothing but gained the only thing I’lll ever need. I’ve watched him time and time again fulfill the deepest desires of my heart.

My prayer for this mission is to offer up all that I have for the people that we will serve. I want to offer all that I am in proclaiming the gospel to help others experience what I have: the ever-present peace and joy that flow from a relationship with Christ. In answering “yes” to Jesus’ call I want to be stretched spiritually and grow closer in personal relationship with him. I desire to serve in the footsteps of the saints and to share with others even a portion of the blessings my life has been showered with.

Although my heart has been stolen by Jesus and this mission, the financial cost is considerable, and does not include round-trip flights to the mission orientation site. I humbly ask that you consider partnering with me in this adventure by supporting me financially and by remembering the entire Cameroon mission team in your prayers. Thank you for your support and for reading a bit more about me. I feel extremely blessed to be a part of this mission and I’m excited to see the blessings God will share in Cameroon.

God bless,
Sarah Gillian
