Dust off that sewing machine and find your pins and scissors. Use your sewing skills to weave God into the lives of children around the world.
Mary Beth Turberville, a school nurse, returned to her home in Phenix City, Alabama, with a renewed heart for ministry after a Baptist Medical and Dental Mission International trip to Nicaragua. The Lord put a vision in her head and a deep passion in her heart to share Christ through a children’s clothing ministry.
Turberville explains, “Missions has always been a part of my life, but in the past if I had time, I was willing to serve. Now I serve the Lord first; then if there is time left, I might do what I want. Life is not about me, but about God and what I can do for others.” With this heart change, she began to use the sewing skills she had always possessed to minister to children in other countries.
1. Set a date and location for a sewing bonanza. Invite women of all ages—from girls to grandmas. Bring your non-believing friends to this non-threatening event.
2. Organize and collect your supplies.
