The night before returning to Texas, Dawnette and Meagan went on a cruise with the rest of the mission team and took this picture.
Toasts and Singing
Sisters Meet On Mission Trip to San Francisco
Texas residents Dawnette Magner Lantz and Meagan
McHenry attended a church-sponsored mission trip to San
Francisco last July, but did not know one another until their
second day in the City by the Bay.
They met and began a conversation while on a break. After
discovering they are both Baylor U graduates, Dawnette
asked Meagan if she was in a sorority. Meagan responded,
“I’m a Chi Omega.” Dawnette’s vocal pitch increased a few
notches as she responded, “Me, too!” Once the women realized
they are Theta Kappa Chapter Sisters, they had a hug
session right on the spot.
Later that day, Meagan learned that another Baylor graduate,
also on the trip, planned to run the Golden Gate Bridge
that afternoon. Meagan had always dreamed of running the
bridge but didn’t have on the appropriate shoes. She began
asking around: “Is anyone was wearing a size 6 tennis shoe?”
Dawnette was the only one who could help. Instantly, these
two Sisters traded shoes and Meagan, who was part of the
Baylor Spirit Squads before her 2011 graduation, was able to
run the Golden Gate Bridge.
Dawnette and Meagan spent a week in San Francisco landscaping,
feeding the homeless, working with a women’s
ministry, and making a Chi O connection.
