Abigail Jarrett

Hey there! My name’s Abigail and I’m a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Northern Iowa!!! What an absolute joy it is that the Lord has entrusted me to serve so many beautiful young men and women who are seeking so much truth and joy. Jesus has changed my life in such a radical way and continues to do so through sharing the gospel with those around me.

My Story

Growing up as a cradle Catholic, I knew the importance of faith, but it wasn’t as important to me before entering college. It wasn’t until I encountered a FOCUS missionary my freshman year at North Dakota State University when she started investing in me that I began to have this deeper longing for something more. As I began to open myself up to the Lord and His plan it was then that I was able to let go of the things of this world and where I began to experience freedom.

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus, and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus example to find the best method for reaching the world. I’ve been constantly amazed by the different souls I’ve encountered on campus. It has been the greatest gift to say yes to the mission of Jesus and to continue living it out at the University of Northern Iowa!imagejpeg 1

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on Benedictine’s campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.
