About Fran by: Frances Mabel McCrory - Meservy October 15, 1943 - 1965
I was born in Beaumont TX and lived in Silsbee TX until I was 2. I lived in Kirbyville from age 6-age7 and then with the exception of 5 months in Pensacola FL for 5 months in 1955, lived in Buna TX until I was 18 years old.
I went to college in Port Arthur TX and got an associates Degree (went to school full time and took night courses) in 1 year by the time I was 19. I lived in dorm for 1 year, with a woman for 1 month and my own apartment for a month & back to the dorm for another 2 months.
I worked in Beaumont until I was 21 (lived in the Y for 1 1/2 years & in a duplex for 3 months).
I fell in love with Jesus when I was 3 years old and started reading the Bible when I was 5 on my grandmother's lap. I have never stopped. I am 65 years old now and have no idea how many times I've read God's word all the way through.
My Dad died when I was 11 years old and God became my father in a more complete way.
My Mom taught us to watch for Jesus' hand in all things. IE: He brought the rain so our crops would grow, etc.
I have been a Christian for over 60 years. I am not ordained nor have I been to Bible College or Seminary. The Holy Spirit teaching me God's word and pastors using God's word have taught me what I know. I am a lay Evangelist who has the gifts of Exhortation, Word of Wisdom, Word of Knowledge and Working Miracles. God has used me as a lay missionary for many years. Our church in KS had me on their ministry list as a lay missionary. I could feel their prayers.
1 Tim 4:16 Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.
Prov 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.
