MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Mime Cherise Garrido said the point of "mimestry" is to spread the gospel without saying a single word. "What I do is inspired by God," said Garrido, 43, of Martinsburg, W.Va. Garrido is part of a growing Christian subculture of gospel mimes, performers who mime to gospel songs. Online "Mime Ministries" are well represented in social networking sites such as Ning, where they can be found categorized by state. Garrido plans to attend a world-wide gospel mime convention in Pittsburgh, from July 15 to 17. The conference is hosted by K&K Mime Ministries, the brainchild of two Pittsburgh brothers whom Garrido called the "fathers of gospel miming.
