THE STORY:

What have you always dreamed of? 

You know, from your early days? From the beginning? 


For as long as I can remember, I have dreamt of being a missionary. I could often be found reading the tales of the saints that have gone before us and even stories of the lives of missionaries today. From an early age, I knew I wanted to live a life on mission. I went on every mission trip my church and my community offered starting in 8th grade and I could not get enough. There is something truly special when we have the opportunity to enter into the mess of life with our brothers and sisters. When I was living life on mission I felt FULLY ALIVE. 


When I graduated from high school I decided to study nursing so that I could (in my mind) go to the mission field as quickly and effectively as possible. Africa had always captured my imagination and during the summer of 2015 the Lord gave me the desires of my heart! (He is so FAITHFUL) I served with Franciscan Capuchin Sisters in Tanga, Tanzania that summer. It was a beautiful experience. I learned a lot about the Lord, his little ones, and what life as a nun looks like on a daily basis! It was a wild summer that truly changed me. At the end of the summer, I felt God calling me back to the States to work in mission with Him here. 


For the last two years, I served with the Franciscan Friars of the Holy Spirit in three primary ministries - the Healing of the Heart, Women of Praise, and Sharers of the Word - throughout the Valley and at Grand Canyon State University. I walked with women through their healing process, I helped created a women's community, and  helped put on retreats/prayer meetings. Again, in Phoenix, I learned a lot about the Lord, his little ones, and life on mission. 


While the Lord had created a way for me to serve in these ministries there was still a deep desire to travel with Him and go out to the nations! I traveled to the Philippines and India during my time here, but my heart still wanted more. The day might come when I am ready to be rooted down and settle into a city, a place of work, and my missionary heart will be content with ordinary life, but for now, my dreams of being a full time missionary are coming true! 


I will be serving with Catholic Medical Mission Board in Trujillo, Peru for the next six months! I will be moving in next door and sharing life with my Peruvian brothers and sisters and I am SO EXCITED. 


So what will I be doing in Peru? 

I will be serving with CMMB Peru’s project activities which are committed to further reducing malnutrition, anemia, and other determinants of maternal and child morbidity.


The main goals of the project are:

+Improving quality and access to healthcare

+Improving health conditions: water, sanitation, and nutrition

+Promoting economic development


For more information about CMMB's work in Peru, please visit: https://cmmb.org/country-office/peru/


If you are interested in partnering with me financially your donation would efficiently support programs for women, children and their communities around the world through CMMB and in my case Peru! Donations go directly to CMMB and 95% of all donations go towards work we do in the field that directly impacts those we serve. By donating to CMMB you donate to the women, children and families I will be serving in Trujillo. Your aid helps empower and improve the health of a community I will soon call my own.  


Also, above all else, please keep me, those we are serving, and CMMB in your prayers! 


Know that I will carry you in my heart and your intentions with me in prayer. 


Those things you have always dreamed about, it is time to start doing them!
