Pentecostal flock treasures 106-year old bishop

Massey, a South Carolina-born daughter of a slave, has risen to the second-highest rank in the House of God, the Pentecostal church she joined in 1929.In her church, she also found her place in the world, achieving a national stature not often accorded black women of her generation.Massey's hearing is good, her mind sharp, her legs functional. Ask her when she was last sick, and she'll tell you 1955.
