The Bible tells about a Christian woman named Dorcas, who lived in a town called Joppa. See Acts 9:36-42; She liked to help people. She made clothes for them and did many other kind things.
One day Dorcas became sick and died. But some of her friends felt sure she could be brought back to life. They had heard that Peter, a disciple of Christ Jesus, was in a town not far away. There he had just healed a man who had been sick in bed for eight years.
So they sent messengers to ask Peter to come and help Dorcas. Peter came right away and found Dorcas's friends crying. They told Peter about her loving deeds for others and showed him some of the coats and things she had made.
