Editor: We asked our friend Dawn Brown to share a little about herself.

I grew up in a small town in Limestone, New York, on the Pennsylvania border.

Growing up in a family with nine children, I was the third of seven girls. I lost two sisters to cancer and two brothers. Early on I attended a small Methodist church.

In 1987 I joined the Methodist Church in Chichester, when Pastor Tom Mabie was there. I read through the Bible from Genesis to Revelations every year after that. I worked in prison ministry with Pastor Tom, as well as leading Bible study at homes through Stonecroft Ministries with June Valentyn.

When Bob and I were married, we joined the Baptist church and were both baptized by “going under” for Jesus.
