Andy comes from Avery Island, Louisiana. Retrospection has shown him that God has been calling him toward foreign missions for decades. His earlier life and formation as an evangelical Protestant, his conversion and reception into the Catholic Church, and his ongoing vocation as a secular Carmelite have all brought him to the point where, out of retirement, he is now saying “Yes!” to that call. The overwhelming joy he experienced on a mission trip to General Cepeda, Mexico in March 2015 led him to seriously consider the possibility of serving as a long-term missionary with Family Missions Company. Participating in the June Come & See Weekend was decisive. Following his formation in Intake 2015, he was posted to Peru, where, serving today, he asks your prayers.
