It is October 8th already. Can you
believe it? We arrived in Redlands a
week ago. The very next day we went
to LifeHouse Theater to see Little
Women. This was the first time that
Glen could sit with Marilyn during
the production because he has always
played Mr. Lawrence in the
production until this time. One of
our favorite characters in the play
is Aunt March played by our friend,
Debbie Race. Debbie is a delightful
lady who manages to play an ‘old
Glen is anxiously preparing to play
the part of Scrooge in the Christmas
play of Scrooge. This will be the
25th anniversary of the first
presentation of Scrooge. We both
remember appearing in the 1986
presentation at Trinity Evangelical
Free Church here in Redlands.
We have been very busy since our
arrival in Redlands last week. We
attended church on Sunday and were
welcomed by many dear friends. On
Tuesday we went to Catalina Island.
Marilyn was reminded of the song
“Twenty-six miles across the sea.
Santa Catalina is waiting for me.”
On our trip ‘across the sea’ we
caught a beautiful view of the Queen
Mary. We enjoyed the chance to
unwind some from a very busy summer.
We loved the island, but we did tire
of the hills. It seemed it was
impossible to go anyplace without
going uphill. We did love the
opportunities to eat at some great
restaurants and enjoy the gorgeous
We definitely enjoy the California
weather, but we do miss our friends
at Keswick, too.
We just received a letter from our
granddaughter Kate. She is going
with a group from her church to
India on a mission trip in January.
She is beginning the fund raising
portion of this very special event.
If you would like to receive
information about her trip, please
let us know, and we will pass on
that information to Kate.
Marilyn’s foot surgery is still set
for November 8. All of the routine
doctor’s visits begin next week. We
also have a date on October 14th to
have the jacks repaired on the motor
Please continue to pray for
Marilyn’s sister-in-law Karen and
her cousin Al as they are both
receiving chemotherapy treatments.
