Mary sat in the audience of the church one morning listening to her pastor reading a request from some of the church’s missionaries.

Mary had entrepreneurial gifts, significant business experience, a love for the gospel and the local church, and a missionary vision to see disciples made around the world. Until now, these passions and skills seemed disparate. However, as she heard the missionary’s appeal that Sunday, she began to see them coalesce beautifully for the first time.
