Hello! My name is Margaret, but everyone calls me Meggie.

Where I serve

I am the Team Director at McNeese State University and serving my 6th year as a missionary. I am thrilled to be serving for another year on mission and to see how God continues to call me and the students deeper into His most loving and merciful heart.

My Story

I am very blessed to be a product of the Diocese of Wichita Catholic School system. In the summer of 2017, God called me to serve my 4th summer as a Totus Tuus Missionary. Only this time, He called me out of Wichita and to the Diocese of Madison, Wisconsin. That summer, God transformed my heart in so many ways. The students I encountered and the conversations I had with my teammates all made me realize how blessed I was with my education and the life I had lived up to that point.

At the end of that summer, I realized God had placed a desire on my heart to serve him in a radical way. A desire to share my life propelled by my relationship with Christ with others became something I could not bend to my own will and plans. Total surrender to God’s will in my life was apparent. As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. I want nothing more than to bring the joy I found in my relationship with Christ to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I’ve been constantly amazed by the different souls I’ve encountered on campus, and how God has used me to continue to pursue them.

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.
