"This year as an apostle, more than anything, I am really looking forward to growing closer to Jesus Christ. I have been so deeply impacted by the apostles that have served before me, and I am excited to be able to serve others the same way I have been served. Some of the best experiences of my life have been encountering the poor alongside of my fellow missionaries that I have been so blessed to get to know. I now feel called to give that same opportunity to others to experience the fullness of joy, love, peace, and authentic friendship that comes from serving and growing closer to Christ together. I am so thankful for the support to fulfill this call!"
