          After a few days of the same five or six kids coming at 3 PM each day to pay the Divine Mercy Chaplet with us, we decided that we would bring out Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament for them while we prayed. Each day, we had taught a little more about Jesus and me...

          “Pack light. Only a small duffle and a backpack.”

          Those were the words spoken to me the day before I left for my first mission trip in 2018. I threw three pairs of scrubs, my journal, Bible, and Rosary in my ba...

            The first time that I went on a mission trip was with FOCUS (the Fellowship of Catholic University Students) and was where the mission trips that I lead today to Alaska were born from. This post isn’t about...

In the summers of 2017 and 2018 I had the opportunity to go on mission to the remote villages of Alakanuk and Mountain Village, Alaska. Katrine is one girl that I met and developed a friendship with. This past summer, my fellow missionaries and I ran into her in Mounta...

            “I thirst” John 19:29. While it is a simple Bible verse that we hear quite often, it is one that I never really understood, or better yet, knew how to put into action. I was a good Catholic, but no matter how much I did, I still felt that something was miss...

Hey everyone!  We’re excited to let you know about the #iGiveCatholic campaign on Tuesday, November 27th, following Thanksgiving. That's only two weeks away! This is a nationwide campaign for Catholic non-profits and charities. We are participating as a non-profit with...

   Wow, our third consecutive summer of sending missionaries to Gallup, New Mexico and we couldn't have asked for a better start to our summer of missions. Our mission team as always consisted of a very diverse group of students. A mix of graduate students, first year...

As we make the final preparations for our missions this summer, we want to introduce to you some of the missionaries who have stepped up this year to take on leadership roles on the trips. After each mission trip, we ask the missionaries if they would consider returnin...

      Last summer, I had the opportunity to go to Gallup, New Mexico for a mission trip with College Mission Company. This mission trip completely changed my life and helped me to grow not only as a person, but also as a child of God.  The people that I...

     One summer’s afternoon I got a phone call from my buddy, and campus minister, Joe Nelson. I was in Target with my mom when I got the call. Just the usual super-friendly verbal handshake I’d expect from Joe, but then he told me about this mission to New Mexico...

     There is something very surreal about writing a blog for the mission company you helped start just a few years back. It feels like just yesterday Janson and I were planning the logistics of our first trip to Gallup, New Mexico. Frankly, I could never have imagined...

Happy New Year! I know what you’re thinking… it’s already mid-January. I have already given up on everything I had planned to do for 2018. I’m waiting to start in 2019. Well, that’s just silly. Have no fear, Aunt Katie is here. The fine folks at College Missions Compan...

     There has been so much joy accepting the call to missions — joy that comes from the simplicity of the little things. From hearing a missionary’s first testimony, praying with people in the mission field, cracking a fresh joke with the Sisters, or jumpin...

     Throughout the course of my twenty years of living, I have been taught what to believe about Jesus Christ and why I am to believe it.  Through extensive and rigorous Catholic schooling, I hav...

“See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth,

being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains.

You too must be patient.” James 5: 7-8

     There once was a man who lived in a small town called Espera. One day, one of the man’s frien...
