My Story

As I entered adulthood, I knew I wanted to give my life for some great purpose, to do something wonderful, but as to what, I didn’t know. I spent most of my twenties trying to figure it out and wondered why I had come to little success. At 27 I approached a crossroads in my life where I looked back on all I had accomplished, or in this case, not accomplished, and I saw a life of wasted years because I had spent that time trying to satisfy only myself. I had not asked God how I could be of use to others, only how I could gain more for myself. Thankfully, God had other plans for me. He came to me in my lowest moment and transformed my heart into one that had the desire to give everything. I call this moment my spiritual conversion, but for all that endeavor in the spiritual life, I know that we are constantly and forever being called to conversion, that our need for transformation never ends. I have continued to seek Him out and as I have done this He has pulled me deeper into His embrace, calling me to not only a life with Him, but a life of service to those who have been abandoned and forgotten. The abandoned and forgotten take many forms, but for the time being Jesus is asking me to serve those we so often ignore on the streets, those without a home. In the days that I have spent with the missionaries in Baltimore, I have encountered a simple truth, that we are all exiles without a home, wandering in a strange land. In this place, I am happy to join the homeless in the streets and learn what I can from them about true abandonment to God and loving without reservation. Jesus is truly present in the poor and it is in loving them that we love Him better. I dearly appreciate any support offered to me. God bless you all.

Become a Mission Partner

Pursuing my calling as a missionary is only possible through the spiritual and financial support of mission partners. Your investment in this mission enables our community to go out and share life with our friends on the street day after day, where we address their biggest source of suffering—isolation—in a way that nobody else can. Your support enables our program to grow, and we intend to have a community of 15-20 missionaries by August 15, 2022. These young, determined men and women will be nourished and equipped through daily opportunities for spiritual, intellectual, and human formation, and they will spend time in prayer before Christ in the Eucharist, interceding for the needs of this suffering city. Your support makes all the difference, and I want to invite you to invest in both me and my community. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know the best way to reach you and I will happily schedule a time to meet! You can email me at dstein502@gmail.com
