Meaghan

My name’s Meaghan and I’m a 1st-year Christ in the City missionary from Hathaway, LA.

What brought you to Christ in the City?

I have always felt closest to God through service and through the poor. During my senior year of college, I had the opportunity to go on street walks with the homeless in Baton Rouge. I found myself planning my weeks around these walks because I never wanted to miss a Sunday with these people. I originally planned to start physical therapy school immediately after my college graduation, but I felt the Lord calling me to be vulnerable and courageous. Specifically, I felt Him telling me that now was the time to commit myself to Him through service. Doors continued to open until I finally decided to say yes to His plans for me!

What are you looking forward to?

I cannot wait for all of the relationships I will make within the next year! I love the idea of living with a bunch of young people who are all striving for Heaven. I’m also super excited about all of the friendships I am going to make on the streets. I feel Christ’s love the most through genuine friendships, and I know this next year will be filled with these friendships.

 
A bit about me

I was born and raised in a small town called Hathaway, Louisiana where I am the middle child of 5 children. I will graduate with my bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from LSU in May of 2022, and I hope to one day be a physical therapist. I love being outside, especially if it involves playing tennis. If possible, I would spend all of my time at the beach. I am a people person who loves traveling to new places, meeting new people and listening to good music. Also, I could live off of crunchy peanut butter and popcorn!
