Meg Hunter-Kilmer is a hobo missionary. After 2 theology degrees from Notre Dame and 5 years as a high school religion teacher, she quit her job in 2012 to live out of her car and preach the Gospel to anyone who would listen. 50 states and 20 countries later, she joins us to explain how she was led into her current life. From being homeless in Istanbul while there was rioting in the streets to being stranded in Alabama with no planes, trains, or automobiles to be had, Meg has watched God show up enough in times of tremendous need that she’s almost ready to trust him with traffic jams and broken heels. Listen to her story to learn how to trust God even if you’re Type A.
