words from women who’ve done mission with Baptist Women
I dreamed about doing this kind of thing after I retired. When God aligned everything to happen for me – that my love of sewing and my ‘social’ personality could be used and that the trip was affordable – I was beyond thrilled for this opportunity.
I returned to Canada knowing that God was knitting together my Trinidad faith (I came to faith as a young teen in Trinidad) and my Toronto/Canada faith. I am being made new!

This trip confirmed to me that God can use anyone to glorify Him and impact others, even me – the daughter of a nonbeliever, a mother, pastor’s wife, secular-working, non-seminary-student everyday woman.

This trip confirmed my thoughts about being able to take part in short-term missions. I feel more confident in helping beginners in a sewing class. As an immigrant myself, I am able to relate to the challenges of new immigrants and share my own experiences.

The women on the team all felt as if this STM was a ‘retreat,’ and through learning from each other and simply offering to God the little we had, I was so amazed how He worked everything out.
Honestly, I went in . . . with no specific expectations, except fear of the unknown and a nervous feeling of inadequacy. However, I kept reminding myself that God is in control and if I will only trust him and go, He can use me in whatever way He knows best that will bring glory to His name!
