I’ve always lived in the Greater Toronto Area, having moved a couple of times around the city. My parents took me to Spanish Mass growing up (with me not knowing much Spanish as a child). I remember my childhood priest always being very passionate! At a certain point my family stopped going to Mass and it wasn’t until I was a pre-teen that I started exploring my faith again. I participated in youth groups where I encountered God but didn’t have a true understanding of who He was.
While in university, I lived on my own and had to ask myself if I wanted God in my life. I met CCO and gradually came to a deeper understanding of my faith. It was because of CCO, and their Rise Up Conference, that I finally gave my life entirely to Christ.
From that day on, I felt something in my heart calling me to staff. I put that call on the back-burner and it took over a year (and God speaking to me through many people) before I answered the call to missionary life with CCO.
My missionary journey has now led me to take up the role of Team Leader at Simon Fraser University. I’m excited to continue journeying with the SFU community and leading the movement on one of the West coast campuses.
I would ask for you to pray for my team, for our campus goals, and for our students as we journey with them to Christ.
