My life changed in 2008. In my first year of university, I attended a retreat hosted by CCO. I heard the truth about Jesus and how I was created for a relationship with Him. I was moved with great awe at how God could see me, know me, and love me. During a night of prayer and adoration, I prayed a simple prayer, inviting Him to be at the center of my life. That moment changed the trajectory of my life.
During a mission project with CCO, I became more aware of the great need for Jesus to be proclaimed on our university campuses. Everyone is searching, yet all the places they are looking are leaving them more parched—as I was. Upon graduation, I heard the call to become a full-time missionary with CCO to give students the same opportunity I was given. To be accompanied to Jesus so that more people could come to experience this freedom and joy.
I am currently the Interim Internal Training Manager. My role is managing the training of our missionaries with the attitudes, skills and knowledge of being effective missionaries. It’s so life-giving! After serving on campus for eight years, I am now using that experience and my love for teaching to be able to send out more missionaries into the mission field across Canada.
