I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. At the age of fourteen, I was saved on a Tuesday night after a church outreach. While at the outreach, I was under very heavy conviction and knew that I was lost in my sins and needed to be saved. So after the outreach, I went to my dad’s room and told him what was going on in my heart and was saved that night!
About a month before I graduated high school, I went out with some of the men of my church and a visiting missionary on a special outreach. That missionary invited me to go to Morocco on a six-week mission trip. I accepted the offer, and, over the next month, God did amazing things to provide the money for me to go.
I graduated high school on May 27, 2011, and that Sunday I left with the missionary to head to Georgia for the Our Generation Camp, a five-day camp we were required to attend before we left for Morocco. It was an awesome five days that revolutionized my life completely!
I spent the five days being encouraged and challenged to do big things with my life by missionaries who were serving all over the world- from China to Peru, to Morocco, to America, and many other places. I left that week knowing I needed to do something with my life and God could use me to do big things for Him.
