Shawnee woman dies while doing mission work in Romania

Alexis Brownlee quickly picked up the local language in Romania, and taught English to orphans and other children. Last weekend, the 20-year-old from Shawnee worked with other missionaries putting on street dramas and sharing the Christian Gospel. She went to bed. She got up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom when a seizure set in. She fell and died.
