Back    

Mrs. Brown was a link to our pioneer past. Her grandfather, the well-known Amos Harvey, was among the earliest to cross the Oregon Trail.

In her later years of life, she settled in Vancouver. She told me of her pioneer past. I inquired where she attended church and she named a local church. I asked her what she was doing there and she responded that she was teaching them about baptism. I next inquired about how many years she had been there and she replied "twenty." Then I suggested that she give up the project and align herself with those who believed, like she did, that baptism was a part of the salvation package.

The very next Sunday she placed her fellowship with the Minnehaha Church and remained there until she graduated to glory. Such an example of taking the right path when she saw it.
