“Apostolicity requires that the Church–and I stress the whole Church–not limit herself to pastoral care of those within; to cultivating what comes easily, what is beautiful and spiritually inspiring for the benefit of those who are ‘within the Church.’ The Church is called constantly to dare to make an exodus, Read more…
Meg is a long-term missionary with the Orthodox Christian Mission Center about to begin her service in Nairobi, Kenya. In time, she hopes to serve in not only Kenya but also Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi as she implements a new translation program to put the Holy Scriptures and the Divine Liturgy into the local, tribal languages of East Africa. Although the translations themselves will be done by seminarians who are native speakers, Meg's assignment is to set up the translation program and train the translators.
Meg was received into the Orthodox Church in 2011, following two and a half years of catechism that she began during her years at Biola University. Orthodoxy, for her, is the fulfillment of all she learned growing up in the Baptist church. She loves how the Orthodox lifestyle of faith and love for God can be lived in every culture.
Meg's interest in missions began when she was a teenager and encountered missionaries from Wycliffe Bible Translators. She learned to read Greek and Hebrew and chose to study linguistics. When the time came to find a cross-cultural internship, she went with the OCMC to Tanzania. That short trip solidified her desire to be a servant of the Church among the East African peoples.
Please remember to keep Meg in your prayers!
