A First For Me...

I received a burden for missions about a year ago... (I actually wrote about it for my English class and my teacher loved it.)


It was quite the experience, to say the least. I had images/clips [filled with faces that were hurt & searching for help] run through my mind constantly.


It disturbed me.
It made me cry.
But most of all, It changed me.

My Pastor preached on Wednesday night and he mentioned that God was dealing with him about missions.


“We don’t give enough money to missions.”

“There needs to be more time spent in prayer for missions.”

What he said was so good & we understood. He told us of Bro. Thomas, missionary in India, who visited a week or 2 before. Bro. Thomas had preached for the church about 4 years ago (before I was there, I think). He told Pastor that he wanted a group of Pastors/ministers/saints to go to India.

So my Pastor told us he wanted anyone who can, to go to India with him..

And here I am today, telling you, that I am planning on going :)

I have heard stories about the bugs, the life (Wealthy/Poor/Middle Class), the food..etc. This is no fun & games.. It's business.



It’s going to be difficult. A few thousand dollars to raise.. But hey, if I really want to go, then I will REALLY try to raise the money.

My first Missions Trip :)
and I pray not the last.

Pray for me & the rest of the group that plans on going. Also, make sure you keep those who are on the Mission Field in your prayers! They all need it!

God bless :)

Where have I been?

Has it really been almost 2 years since my last post? So much has changed.

(Honestly, I am updating my blog because I like to reflect back on how far God has brought me. Forewarning, don't read if you don't want to take a look into my life the past year. This blog has many memories and I want to add on to it.)

2 years seems like a lifetime ago. I was hurting, broken-hearted, uprooted, and quite frankly, needing God more than ever. I questioned everything I was taught and needed answers, but thankfully, there was one thing I knew for sure...

God had plans and He would be all I needed.

Fast forward to October 2017 and I have lived in the state of Washington for a year, moved into my dreamy studio apartment in August, and I work in beautiful northern Idaho making & working more than I would have in Southern California. Who would have thought? Little Miss Meagan, moving 1.300 miles away from her family because God opened doors and said, "Come."

This place has become h…
