Had quite a trip home to Willows this past April, 2013
… a sad/happy reunion with the Fleming family as we celebrated the phenomenal life of Barbara Fleming who had passed away… my heroes are falling, and it’s hard to think of life without their guidance.
To her surprise, Barbara Fleming had become a Christian at Wheaton. She then felt that God wanted her on the mission field, and dumped her current boyfriend who was not so inclined. Enter James Fleming, who I believe was a chemistry major at the time. Barbara, at the age of 19, became one of the many infected with the polio virus. Her disease course left her in a wheelchair for the remainder of her life.
