This has been a busy visit to Redlands. Glenís radioactive seed
implantation occurred on March 31. He has been released by the
doctor. We will know more about the impact of the procedure after a
blood test in about two or three months. Glen is feeling fine, and
we are expecting the cancer to be destroyed.
On April 26, Arrowhead Christian Academy dedicated Nateís Place, a
memorial garden which will provide a quiet and beautiful place for
the students. Marilyn spoke to the student chapel earlier that day
and then Glen and Marilyn both spoke at the dedication. Marilyn was
interviewed by a reporter from the Redlands Daily Facts, and we were
speechless when we saw the paper the next day.
This beautiful picture and article appeared on the center of the
front page. The Lord has done it again! All through the past 23
years, we have seen God repeatedly orchestrate recognition of Nate
and Godís grace in ways we could never arrange.
The dedication of the garden was beautiful. We are grateful to
Arrowhead Christian Academy and to Administrator Steve Hicok and his
wife, Laurie for all of the work they put into this tribute.
We were again so impressed with how God has used Nathanís death to
minister to people all over the world and to bring honor to God,
The dedication couldnít have been more perfect from so many of our
friends attending, many having known Nate, to the ACA choir singing,
to the dedicatory prayer by our pastor, Lowell Linden, to the
unveiling of the plaque. Everything was in place and definitely

The garden is just to the right of the main entrance to the school.
To the left of the waterfall are five rose bushes in honor of all
five of our children. The roses will be red and white, the school

We plan to leave Redlands on Monday, May 1. We will be making many
stops to visit friends along our way to New Jersey. We will spend
our summer at Americaís Keswick in Whiting, New Jersey and plan to
arrive there after the middle of June.
Please pray with us for Safety on the road
Renewed health for Glen
Continued good health for Marilyn
Good progress in Marilynís studies
That God will continue to use us in His service.
We appreciate each of you, your prayers, and your friendship.
Glen and Marilyn Heavilin
