SAN ANTÔNIO, Tex. (BNC) — Former missionary to Brazil Barry Newton published an article today in his Forthright Magazine column, “Hands-on Faith,” about his mother, E. Jeannette Newton, who passed away on Monday.

Barry begins with an amazing summary:

Some of the milestones strewn throughout her life included the beginnings of the Herald of Truth, an Exodus movement, a school teacher, a preacher’s wife, a new wife adopting two kids from Brooklyn and having two of her own, a missionary, as well as a Bible school curriculum developer.

Barry and his wife Sofia worked with a mission team to establish the church in the city of Florianópolis, in southern Brazil.

He was the first columnist for Forthright Magazine, beginning in 1996, continuing to write until today.
