FeedbackPlease add my mother to the Newsmakers. Her name is Dorothy Gann, Leavenworth, KS. She turned 90. I recently learned she was baptized by a traveling COC preacher in a creek in Missouri when she was just 18 and heard the word preached. She is a wonderful Christian woman!Elaine BrennemanBasehor Church of ChristLeavenworth, KS
