In September of 1993, Megan was adopted from Bogotá, Colombia. At three months old she was adopted into a Christian home and had the privilege of growing up knowing Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior.
At sixteen years old, the passion and a heart for missions was planted when she went on her first short-term global missions trip to Jamaica with her church.
She later went on to graduate from cosmetology school and pursued a career of being a full time beautician. Not feeling fulfilled by her efforts to work really hard in the cosmetology industry she decided to explore and pray about the idea of pursuing missions.
In September of 2015, Megan was introduced to Action International Ministries (ACTION) through her pastor at her home church as well as Jeff and Mary Ann Anderson who have been full time missionaries in ACTION Philippines for more than 30 years.
Through prayer and counsel, she felt that God was telling her to wait and pursue a five month Discipleship Training School through Youth With A Mission before she pursued ACTION further.
While doing outreach in Thailand she heard the Lord clearly tell her that He was calling her to full time missions through ACTION and that the next country He wanted her to pursue was her home country; Bogotá, Colombia.
The Lord has laid it on her heart to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and assist others to do the same.
“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:19-20 (NLT)
