Evangelism is a lifestyle. This motto drives many Potomac Conference Far West End church members to seek opportunities to help their Rockville, Va., community. Recently 21 eager sewing students spent an afternoon learning how to make pillowcases to be donated to a local nursing home. The ministry, dubbed “Bed of Roses”—as each pillowcase illustrated flowers—yielded nearly 120 cases to be distributed to residents on Mother’s Day.

Dr. Bemnet Meried is an evangelist living in Virginia. Born into a Seventh-day Adventist family in Eritrea, he always wanted to be a doctor. After the Adventist churches were closed in Eritrea during his teen years, Meried went to college and medical school. He graduated and was working when he decided he needed to escape. After months of struggles, Meried arrived in California and a heard a sermon that changed his life—and his mission.
