By June 30, 2020April 22nd, 2022Christian Living, Podcasts1 min read

Granny Brand (1879-1974): In today’s podcast, we will be talking about a courageous woman known as “Granny Brand,” mother of Dr. Paul Brand. She entered the mission field and married in her thirties. For over sixty years she ministered in the Mountains of Death in India, fording wild rivers, enduring snake bites, dealing with malaria, enduring untold hardships, setting up medical clinics, building schools, sharing the gospel, and raising up Christian leaders. She was an unstoppable force for God!
