Meg is on a mission
Interviewed by Lucy Hynam, TEN Ambassador
When we speak of mission, we often use the metaphor of sowing seeds and this is particularly true in younger lives. However, In the case of sisters Rachel and Jane, one seed was sown far closer to home. As far as following in the footsteps of your family goes, the story of Megan Reeves (formerly Lee), shows how young lives are shaped by influential role models.
‘It helps having inspirational people in my life, but I think I always wanted to be a part of mission and I believe that is God’s plan for me’ – Megan Reeves
It was touching to discover how Meg has been shaped by those who are passionate about mission, especially her mother Rachel Lee and her auntie Jane Jones. Rachel has been involved with TEN and the Romania CASA camps since the get-go, and even coined as ‘Mother Teresa to the children’. With her Auntie Jane having worked on staff for ‘Eurovangelism’, as TEN was formally known. They have both given Meg an incredible outlook and inspired her from a very young age to think of those less fortunate than herself. She was raised with a passion for mission a more caring and giving heart.
Through Meg’s amazing 25 mission trips since 2007, she has cultivated a deep love for the CASA Grace team in Romania, returning every time with the feeling that she’s coming home to family. Anyone who has met Meg can truly see how she too tries to follow the CASA team in spending each day working for the Lord.
Megan is gutted that due to COVID-19 she will miss, what is to her, the highlight of her year! ‘Not seeing the children’s faces and not being able to hug the CASA team, is so hard to comprehend’, but next year promises a camp full of renewed vigour and excitement!
