As a California native, Meka serves as a full-time missionary with Iris Global in Africa. Initially starting with the organization in their Brasil location in 2015, Meka moved to Pemba Mozambique in 2017 to lead the Iris Pemba's children's ministry and the department called Stop for the One (SFTO), a sponsorship ministry that serves provincial children in childcare, education, and village empowerment. Through SFTO, Meka, alongside her Mozambican team, designs and oversees programs that meet the needs of vulnerable children in the Cabo Delgado province. Programs such as Agape feeds hundreds of our local children daily, whose entire families depend on the food their children receive from the program.
Meka has also created a local project called "Portas Abertas," which in Portuguese means "Open Doors." Portas Abertas is a personal project representing Christ and education as an open door for village transformation through women empowerment. Using her former Islamic background, Meka uses the program in partnership with SFTO and Iris as a door for Muslim girls to pursue education.
Meka continues to serve Iris Global alongside her husband, Vincent, while also serving the underground church and projects in the Middle East .
