Hello beautiful people! My name is Jack Rabanal and I’m a FOCUS missionary!

My Story

I’m blessed to be born and raised in a loving and faithful Catholic family. Despite this upbringing, I still found myself falling for Satan’s lies and rooting my identity in the fleeting pleasures of this world. My life would soon be transformed once I went to college at San Diego State University and stumbled upon a very vibrant Newman Center community there. Slowly but surely, I grew in my relationship with Jesus through the help of virtuous friends and FOCUS missionaries. My time at San Diego State has far exceeded my expectations than I could ever imagine. I’ve experienced true freedom and joy in life like never before in rooting my identity as a beloved son of God. As I continue to grow in my relationship with the Lord, I desire to share this Christ-like life with others.

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’s own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I’ve been constantly amazed by the different souls I’ve encountered on campus.
