“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

God spoke to me through these powerful words, which I came across at a time of transition. I recently graduated from University of San Francisco asking myself what is God’s will for me. I did not know. I chose to pray on what God wanted to me to do next everyday and keep my heart open to the answer he gave.

In July of this last year, I could hear the answers God was sending me. I came alive through my experience with Amigos for Christ. The work and the people ignited my heart and opened my eyes to the direction God was showing me. From there, every time God asked me to accept an opportunity, I said yes. I kept getting green lights. I learned through this experience that as long as you do the footwork the rest is up to God.

I am so happy to share that I will be joining Amigos for Christ as a full-time missionary for two years of challenging experiences, unending laughter, learning, and growth. I feel incredibly blessed for this opportunity and that my life at this point in time was open to take on this opportunity that God has presented. I look forward to learning from these incredible people who have so much knowledge and wisdom to share.

I could use your prayers and your support through this time of challenging growth and learning. I would love for you to join me on this journey through my blog, I will be posting weekly to share my experience with you all.

Please prayerfully consider supporting my work with Amigos for Christ in any way that you can! The fundraising covers my housing, food, salary, training, airfare, and savings for returning back to the states after these two years.

If you have any questions or words of encouragement you would like to share with me, my phone number is (408) 348-8234 or my email is

I am not asking what the world needs. I am asking myself what makes me come alive and I am doing that. Because what I have learned is that the world needs people who have come alive.

Let’s come alive together!
