Abigail Skokan

Hey there! My name is Abigail Skokan and I am a FOCUS missionary!

Where I serve

I am serving as a first year missionary at Georgia Tech!

My Story

I was born and raised a cradle Catholic in the city of San Antonio, Texas and was immensely blessed to attend Catholic school growing up. However, once I arrived at Baylor University for college, I saw that all my protestant friends were on fire for Jesus and were ecstatic to attend church every Sunday morning.. but I didn’t see this zeal in any of my Catholic friends. In fact only one out of the six Catholic friends I entered college with desired to attend Sunday Mass. So after 18 years of Catholic education I found myself in a swirl of doubt wondering why I went to Mass and what I even believed. It is from this doubt that a FOCUS missionary at Baylor entered into my life. She was the first of many FOCUS missionaries throughout college who led me to understand through bible studies and discipleships that I am made for relationship. Suddenly, I realized that the reason so many of my Catholic friends stopped attending Mass was because they didn’t know this truth. It was in this relationship with God where I found abundant life in college, and a renewed zeal for my faith.

John 13:14-15 states, “So if I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have set you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you.” Reflecting on the ways FOCUS missionaries have shaped my life, I said yes to giving back the truth of what I received. The truth that will make everyone want to jump out of bed, run to Mass and meet Jesus in his overflowing love for us.
