“…Go and bring forth fruit…” (John 15:16 KJV)
In 1981 the Lord birthed this ministry in the hearts of Steven, Cathy, Mark, Amanda and Danny Brewer when they lived in Croswell, MI. Incorporated in El Paso, Texas June 1988 as “Tapestries of Life Ministries.”
Steve and Cathy have three wonderful adult children: Mark, Amanda, and Danny, who have been their greatest inspiration and support throughout their lives. Their children are grown up now, live in various parts of the US and have blessed them with 8 grandchildren.
Tapestries Of Life was incorporated in Chihuahua, MX, December 1993 as “Tapestries de Mexico, A.C.” TLM is an international Orphanage & Adoption Agency exclusively for charitable purposes. TLM is a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) public ministry. Tapestries of Life is a US based organization that takes seriously the Christian mandate to take care of widows and orphans. In order to accomplish this mandate, Tapestries of Life is focusing on two large initiatives all for the glory of God.
The first vision that God laid on our hearts is to build an orphanage in Guadalupe Mexico, which will be the largest orphanage in all of Latin America. Although there is a lot of work that needs to be completed, God has blessed this project. The Biblical mandate to take care of the widows and orphans is in the process of being fulfilled in the orphanage that is being built at in Guadalupe, MX. This orphanage will house over 400 children and the government promised to fill it within 24 hours of when it’s doors open with a small percentage of the over 7000 children that are living on the street in this area alone. This orphanage is being built by churches in America, Canada, Scotland and all over the world. May God’s name be praised. However there is a lot of work that still needs to be done.
In the early 1980′s 27 acres of property located in Guadalupe, Mexico was donated to Tapestries of Life Ministries. This property was an answer to prayer for Pastor Steven Brewer and his wife Cathy. The Brewer’s vision is to build an orphanage for the homeless children of Mexico. They have named this orphanage “Casa de las Gemas” – House of Gems. Each child is a jewel in God’s eyes. When completed this complex will house over 400 children. The main dormitory is a two story building constructed in the shape of a cross. Also on the grounds are a Clinic, Cafeteria, Staff Housing, Elementary School and a Warehouse.
Tapestries of Life provides many ways for people to have “hands-on” involvement in our missions outreach to Mexico. Individuals, churches, mission groups, youth groups… there’s an opportunity for you!
