A few weeks ago Sarah over at Footprints on My Heart commented on my blog and asked if I would be interested in taking part in her new Saint Series. I was honored to be asked to take part, and excited to share a little piece of my story! Here's a little exert from my post on how my friendship with a saint got me to campus as a FOCUS Missionary!
...Wednesday night came, and I had $550/month left to raise, 3 appointments, and no more contacts. There was absolutely no way I was going to make it to campus. How embarrassing! I can't even fulfill what God has called me to!
That night, my friend Kelsey posted something in our first year missionary Facebook group about how St. Rita helped her reach her fundraising goal, and encouraged us to find a fundraising patron. I scoffed because even though I had admired the saints my whole life, I'd never really had a relationship with one. But, I was desperate. I googled saints who had feast days on August 12.
Enter St. Janes Frances de Chantal....
