Biographical history

The Bergthal Mennonite Church Women in Mission gathered first in 1956 as "Busy Fingers" to become involved in relief and mission work by learning about it and by contributing financially to it. It was made up of women who were members of the Bergthal Mennonite Church near Didsbury, Alberta, but it was not subordinate nor did it report to that church. It formally reported to the Alberta Women in Mission which in turn reports to the Canadian Women in Mission bodies. It was affiliated with the Mennonite Church Alberta and Mennonite Church Canada. The BMCWM ended its activities in 2006.
