What brought me to Christ in the City

While on mission in the Bronx last spring break, Jesus brought me deeper into the reality that the face which I seek will be found in those on the streets. I just graduated college and wanted to take advantage of this time I have to love wildly- I knew I wanted to spend my life in an attempt to help others know that they are not alone, that they are not only loved but also lovable. For a while I felt the Lord asking me over and over to console His wounded heart and body in His people on the streets. So, after some friends suggested that I look into CIC, I applied and the confirmations followed and I’m so excited to be where He wants me for this next year! 

What I’m looking forward to
Love!!! I am looking forward to witnessing the freedom of love and to encounter the depths of so many different hearts. Truly, I am looking forward to being poured out for the sake of love and to be renewed through that. I’m excited to learn how to love better both in my friends that I will make on the streets and living in community – to walk with people in whatever place they find themselves in. 
 
A bit about me
I am from Houston, TX and just graduated Franciscan University with a BA in Theology. I don’t know a lot but what I do know is that freedom is worthy of being chased after, our poor love is enough, shoes are unnecessary, and every present moment we find ourselves in holds the sacredness of the sacraments. I laugh a lot, I eat way too many avocados, the sun reminds me that I am loved, St. Paul the Apostle has been a solid companion recently, and i love all things lavender.
