Hello, I’m Angel Gabriel Jimenez, born and raised in New York. Currently, I’m a student at Hillsdale College and will probably major in Exercise Science and minor in Religion. I have many hobbies including reading, dancing, singing, weightlifting, riding bikes, exercising, and volunteering. A Fun fact about me is that I’ve flown a plane before!

I am a cradle catholic, but I was unfamiliar with the faith, and since high school, I’ve grown in my understanding of the Catholic faith with all its teachings, history, saints, and sinners. I now have a deep love for the catholic faith and desire all to come home to Christ’s bride. I’m very excited to serve the “least brothers” of Christ.

“The world offers you comfort, but you were not made for comfort. You were made for greatness.” Pope Benedict XVI

Favorite Saint: St. Joseph
Favorite verse: “So let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)

I am serving with a team of young adult mission leaders to run a week-long domestic mission trip in South Texas. March 8-14, 2024. The Rio Grande Valley (RGV) has a rich and loving Hispanic culture. Open and ready to share with all who visit and serve. This area has some of the poorest cities in the continental US. Many families live in homes that have been affected by Hurricanes and Flooding. Most homes in this area are multigenerational households. We also work alongside Catholic Charities at the Human Respite Center, and Arise Adelante Center helping with the spring/summer outreach programs, or at the Food Bank of the Rio Grand Valley packing and handing out food to the local community.
Beyond the great physical work of rebuilding, our mission teams will run retreats for our mission group, opening up the door for the Holy Spirit to work in the hearts of those who serve with us. We start each day with Mass, give formational reflections in the evening, facilitate small group discussions, and bring the groups to adore Jesus’s Blessed Sacrament and to receive His mercy in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Wow! It is such an impactful week for the community we serve, the groups who come to serve with us, us as mission leaders, and you as mission partners.
Our expected work project expenses for 2024 total approximately $100,000. My personal goal is to raise $500. I am excited to share with you my journey with God as a missionary and invite you to become one of my mission partners. Everything that we have is from God and everything that we give is from God. Where is God asking you to invest?  Please consider joining me on the mission by making a one-time or recurring donation to support the work of Catholic Mission Trips, Inc. Your prayers and financial support will bring hope and restore dignity to the families we serve. We would be honored to have you partner with us at $50-$100 a month. I look forward to connecting with you and experiencing the mission together! Thank you for joining my support team!
