Episode Description:

Laura Sewell
Missionary in India 1948-1984
Hosted By: Brent Carlson

The Great commission telling Brethren . . . . .

To go out and proclaim the Gospel to all the lands was something that the church of the Brethren took to heart. Church of the Brethren missionaries were sent to many countries including china and India.

Involvement in India began in 1895 where Brethren helped to establish not only congregations, but schools, health care facilities and other institutions.

In this edition of Brethren voices, laura Sewell tells part of her story of being a missionary in India from 1948 - 1984. Laura states that she knew from the age 11 years-old that she wanted to be a missionary. She had attended the Church of the Brethren’s Camp Stover as a young person and learned of the travels of Brethren missionaries. She wanted to do that, too.

Her involvement in the Church of the Brethren began earlier because of a family emergency which led her mother to assist the family to become involved in the local church. That church happened to be the Clearwater Church of the Brethren in Idaho.

This involvement set Laura on her parh to Bethany Seminary and to her ministry as a missionary. Her volunteer work, today, assists students to learn English.

The April edition of Brethren Voices features a writer who appreciates story telling. He is Jim Lehaman of the Highland Avenue Church of the Brethren.
