Who We Are
ESTABLISHED IN 2018 THROUGH AN INTRICATELY WOVEN STORY.
One Mission Mercantile was established in February of 2018 through an intricately woven story that only God could have authored. God is the master weaver and can bring all things together for the good of all those who love Him and are called according to his purpose. In September of 2016, after the tragic death of a beautiful young lady name Katie Beth Carter, God led a small group to Tomas Borge, Nicaragua to help build a school. As we worked in the community to build relationships and get the school started,God began opening doors and answering prayers.
THE SEWING ROOM WAS CREATED
The sewing room was created as a way to teach a skill set to the women in the neighborhood in the hopes of giving them a way to earn a steady income that they could use to support their families. By teaching these women a skill they could use to bring in a better income for their family, their children wouldn’t have to drop out of school to go to work collecting recyclables or in the fields.
Our mission is to do everything with intention while staying focused on relationships. “I want them to be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love. I want them to have complete confidence that they understand God’s mysterious plan, which is Christ himself.” Colossians 2: 2
Each of these women have a story, some of them difficult to hear, but still precious and beautiful. Our prayer for these women is that they continue to grow in their walk with Christ and truly understand how much they are loved and cherished. We want them to know that their stories matter and that God is taking the messy parts of all of our lives and weaving them together for His great story - His tapestry. We are each unique pieces of thread that somehow when woven together, support the other and form the beautiful body that works together for His glory.
