DORCAS SOCIETY MINISTRY
Gift of a new life
Tabitha, called Dorcas in Greek, was known for her good works and acts of charity. She was also called a disciple of Jesus one who learned from him, part of the inner circle in the early church. When Tabitha (Dorcas) died, others in her company sent for Peter who was visiting in a neighboring town. He came immediately. He asked the others to leave the room where they stood weeping around her deathbed. Peter knelt and prayed. Then he commanded Tabitha: “Get up.” She opened her eyes and sat up. Peter called in the others back in to see that she was alive. What God had done in Tabitha (Dorcas) spread through the region and many then believed in the Lord.

Congo), Samaria (Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, S. Sudan, etc.) and to the Ends of the World (Africa and Other parts of the World).
