“Please Lord, give me strength to be your missionary and live for you every day.” You will be amazed how God answered this prayer from the heart of a young college student the night she gave her heart to Jesus. Who was this college student? Our dear Moms in Prayer sister, Kathie Arnold! Today, Stacy welcomes this mom of four and grandma to fourteen to the podcast. Listen in as Kathie shares her journey from a small town in South Dakota to traveling the world sharing Moms in Prayer and the love of Jesus through the ministry she co-founded with her husband, Come and Sew Ministries International (CASMI). Only God could write a story like this!
I planted the seed in your hearts, and Apollos watered it, but it was God who made it grow. It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. 1 Corinthians 3:6-7
Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you. James 1:27

About our Guest:
Kathie Arnold always had a passion for missions, yet she never imagined or planned anything like CASMI. Kathie and her husband Steve were married in 1972, supported missions, raised 4 children, and now have 14 grandchildren. Kathie and their oldest daughter went on their first mission trip to the former Soviet Union in 1991. Upon returning, Kathie began a sewing school from their home. Ten years later, Steve and Kathie were asked to return to Russia, to investigate how to bring the gospel to orphans through sewing classes in state-run orphanages. They saw a need, were encouraged to go forward, and in 2003 CASMI became an official non-profit. Steve and Kathie make their home in Texas and continue to share the love of Jesus through CASMI.
