Myra gave her life to Christ at the age of 8 and surrendered to full time ministry at the age of 14. She attended college and seminary to become a single female on the mission field. After several short term mission trips during college and seminary, and working with children, including coaching exceptional children in basketball, her calling was solidified. However, God had other plans for the "single" part. She met and married Kevin Daugherty while attending seminary in Texas.
After five years as a pastor's wife and children's minister, Myra and Kevin began their long-term missionary ministry in the Philippines. They both had the privilege to teach at the Philippine Baptist Theological Seminary. Myra taught classes in Principles of Teaching, Marriage and Family, and TESOL. She also served as the children's minister at her church and was invited into public and private elementary schools to do values training which always ended with a Gospel presentation.
They have one son, John who is their precious gift from God.
