I wasn’t interested in getting to know God personally until I met my grade 6 teacher, who inspired me by her witness of living a joyful and Christ-centred life. A few months later, I read the book “Rediscover Catholicism” by Matthew Kelly, which completely changed my perspective on what (or who) brings true fulfillment and purpose in life. From that day forward, I decided to live for God instead of myself. When I was in grade 12, some CCO students visited our class to share about the movement, which led me to sign up for a faith study. CCO changed my life in many ways, and I discovered a whole other side to my faith that I didn’t know I was missing, which was embracing my missionary identity.
When I encounter someone who doesn’t have a personal relationship with Jesus yet, I see a reflection of my own story. I know what it’s like to be lost, and I know how much better it is to be found. This is what fuels my mission for every person to see and love Jesus for who He really is. I’m so excited to accompany more people in this mission by serving in the Program Support department! Thank you for investing in the next generation of missionary disciples through your support.
