Abigail Southworth

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

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Mary. You’ll typically find me reading a good fantasy book, hanging at the Newman Center, or doing monologues in front of my friends. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life — I think you should hear it sometime! Come find me and I’d love to share it with you. 🙂

My Story

As an actress, I am always encountering stories. At one time, I believed my story would never be better than the character I was playing. However, my life has been completely transformed by Jesus beckoning me to follow Him as the Good King of my heart and the Good Shepherd of my soul. He loves all the desires of my heart and wants to see them completely fulfilled. As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ, and for them to know the greatest love story ever told which is God’s story and how we all fit into it. Jesus has called me intimately to be a disciple for souls who do not know the bigger story, and to bring hope and joy that they may be worthy of such a love.

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 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.
