I will praise the LORD at all times; His praise will always be on my lips.
(Psalm 34:1)

I'm Megan, a crazy "fool for God" who went into the world to preach the Gospel and make real friends with the poor. Now my life is an amazing adventure, but I'm still just me, the girl God decided would be enough.


The Great Big Plan (his, not mine)

Hello friends and family in Christ!

It has been a very long time since I’ve broken internet silence, and so much has happened in the last few months. Now though, I finally feel able to share what has been happening in my life lately.

In June I was asked to leave the Philippines and return to the United States. There was a lot of confusion surrounding these events, but after time and much prayer I have decided to leave Family Missions Company now that my two-year commitment is up. It is hard to leave what has been a wonderful community and become my family, but I feel that this is truly what is best for me and what God desires for my life right now. I expected missions with Family Missions Company to be…

The Role of Being Little

Last week we had the supreme honour of hosting a medical mission trip to Malaybalay City here in the Philippines.

Yours are the eyes with which he looks compassion on this world.” —St. Teresa of Avila “An evangelizing community…embraces human life, touching the suffering flesh of Christ in others.” —Pope Francis, Joy of the Gospel Grace visited us the first week we got here to…


The Lord Hears the Cry of the Poor

It is easy to share stories of God’s provision to the people we serve in the mission field. Everyone can understand giving food, clothing, shelter, medicine, or education. How God heals hearts is far more difficult to explain and harder to understand. But I want to share with you this amazing story of how God moved in a mother’s heart.…
