About Me – I’m proud to be the first European convert to Christianity. I’m a native of Thyatira, but relocated to Philippi where I make a living selling rich, colorful fabrics. I specialize in brilliant, vibrant hues of purple. I’m even known as the ‘Seller of Purple,’ a nickname given to me by a good friend and man I admire. My material is perfect for making draperies, robes and wall hangings.You can purchase bolts of various vivid purple shades at the marketplace or at my Etsy Shop.

My Business

As a merchant, I’m always inviting people into my shop. But my heart isn’t in the textile business. Ever since I heard about the Messiah and his death on the cross, my heart has been in the business of spreading God’s word.

After my conversion to Christianity, my family became the center of the Christian Church in Philippi. There’s no fancy building. We meet along the river or in my home. Right now, we are a small congregation, but growing quickly as Paul and his fellow missionaries spread the good news.

Our church is full of faith, strength and hope. Our hearts and minds are open during prayer. Our souls are uplifted. We are excited about praising God and giving our testimonies about Christ! We are open to anyone who seeks to know about the gospel.

I am a believer in Jesus Christ and I warmly welcome you into my home to worship together, to pray together and to serve together. Join me as a shining light in the darkness, illuminating the way to salvation.


Once upon a time there was a young woman who graduated cum laude from university. For years she despaired of ever using her English degree. Then I gave her the direction she needed and now she writes for me - her father so heavenly.
