Hi I’m Lauren! I currently reside in Orlando but have hopped around quite a bit! You can usually find me traveling to visit family or friends. I love baking, running, and going to the beach. I work at a crisis pregnancy center doing both counseling and outreach. I started going on mission trips when I was in middle school and it ignited a fire in me to serve. Each one has been so different and I am excited for what the Lord has in store for this one!

I am serving with a team of young adult mission leaders to direct week-long domestic mission trip for high school students at the Zuni Native American Indian Reservation. This is an amazing opportunity for them to experience the missions and put their faith in action while serving Christ in the poor. We have the honor of working alongside several religious communities, including the Missionaries of Charity!
Beyond the great physical work of rebuilding, our mission team will run a retreat for our high school 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 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, for us as mission leaders, and you as mission partners.
Our expected work project expenses for 2023 total approximately $100,000. My personal goal is to raise between $500-$1,000 to ensure that we have the funds necessary for building supplies, given the astronomical rise in building supply costs. I am excited to share with you my journey with God as a missionary and invite you to become one of my mission partners. “Some go to the missions, others give to the missions. Without both there are no missions.” Everything that we have is from God and everything that we give is from God. Could you contribute to covering the cost of our mission and evangelization?  Please consider joining me on 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-$200 a month. I look forward to connecting with you and experiencing mission together! Thank you for joining my support team!
