Personal Statement:

“Having previously being involved in a variety of different missions working domestically in Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, and Illinois and internationally in Calcutta, India, I have believed for a while now that I am ready for the challenge of performing mission work.  When, where, and how are questions that I have asked myself.  Through much prayer and support from my family and friends, I started researching different mission opportunities to participate in after college.  While searching, I found the Salesian Lay Missioners as a wonderful opportunity.”

Personal Statement:

“Catholic Social Teaching proclaims that that the dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral vision for society. I heartily agree with this claim and desire to live a life that supports such a societal vision. Because of the innate value of each person, I desire to uphold the dignity of all, especially the impoverished and vulnerable through education and service. “

Personal Statement:

“For as long as I can remember I have tried to live my faith through my actions and through the values of faith, humility and love my family has brought me up with.  Mother Theresa said, ‘Like Jesus we belong to the world living not for ourselves but for others. The joy of the Lord is our strength.’ “

Personal Statement:

“I got tired of watching so much need in the world and doing nothing. I know Jesus wants me to go and help in any way to those who are in need. I just want to share the love and happiness He has shared with me. There is something in helping others that makes me that much closer to the love of God.  I know that Jesus is present in each and one of the children the SLM’s are helping and I want to be part of that.”

Personal Statement:

“I have always wanted to be a foreign missionary and have always had a special place in my heart for children, especially children from troubled backgrounds and abusive situation.  I have had a strong desire for some time now to work in an orphanage and take care of the children who have no one to love them.”

Personal Statement:

“It has always been by dream to live and work in an orphanage and be a Catholic loving presence to the youth. There is no better group than the Salesians to work with in desiring to achieve these goals. I hope to see Christ in the face of every child, build trusting relationships with the girls, lead them closer to Christ, and make sure they know how much they are worth and loved!”
