This Friday’s 50th Anniversary story is about Estella Brown. Generations of campers and staff knew “Mrs. Brown” as the camp nurse who cleaned up many scraped knees.  And they knew her as the “Mailbox Club” lady who wrote thousands of hand-written notes to campers on their through-the-mail Bible lessons. What many did not know is she put in four decades as a missionary nurse serving lepers in Nigeria.  She ended up at Frontier Camp when she married the retired widower and missionary, Tom Brown.  He had come to FC to be a painter and Bible teacher in his retirement.

Mrs. Brown passed away in 2014 at the age of 102.  You will not want to miss the short video where she gives us timeless words of wisdom and encouragement during an interview a few months before her 99th birthday.
