Meet Dayna!

mlab Uncategorized

Today, we’re going to introduce you to our third Summer Missionary, Dayna.

To recap from last week, each year, MissionLab hires a team of 8 college-age guys and girls to serve with us all summer. These SMs partner with MissionLab for 9 weeks of ministry and help facilitate easy communication between the leadership of the groups and MissionLab. They are also there to minister to the campers–because even though our MissionLab participants come here to serve, it is our prayer that the Lord works in their own hearts as well.

So, let’s learn a little more about Dayna!


What is your name?

Dayna Grant


How old are you?



Are you in school? If so, where, and what are you studying?

Yes, I attend University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, KY. I’m a double major in Missions and Christian Studies.


Have you been to New Orleans before?

I haven’t.


What made you want to work for MissionLab?

I like the diversity MissionLab has to offer and the uniqueness of it. MissionLab works with various groups in and out of New Orleans. Each week is a different experience because the groups are different.


What’s one thing you’re looking forward to this summer?

Making new friendships with the staff and all of the groups we’ll get to work with.


What’s your favorite genre of music?

I don’t really have a favorite.


What’s your favorite movie?

Fast and Furious (all of them).


What’s your favorite food?

I don’t really have a favorite food, either.


What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s happened to you?

One of the first classes I had in college, I followed the teacher and the class around as the teacher was showing everyone where to go on certain days. During the middle of the class she looked at me and said ‘who are you?’. I told her my name and that I was in the class. Just to be certain, though, I told her the name of the class, and I was wrong. I had been following around the wrong class.


Do you have any hidden talents?

I can pop my jaw


Who would win in a fight: a horse-sized duck, or 10 duck-sized horses? Please provide very specific reasons for your answer.

10 duck-sized horses, because even though they are small they still out number the duck. They can divide and conquer to take him down.


If you could use any quote to sum up your life, what would it be?

“Fall seven times; stand eight times.”



Please remember to keep MissionLab in your prayers as we get ready for the summer. Also be praying for the groups who will be serving in the city and for the people they will come in contact with.

If you’re bringing a group to serve with us this summer, we can’t wait to serve with you!
