THE HEAVILIN HERALD
It’s time for us to leave.
ALREADY??? How is that possible? It
seems we just got here, and now
we’re packing up to head West again.
We think the theme for this summer
would be CHANGE. First, WE have
changed, We know. We are one year
older, and this year, Marilyn has
made it through the whole summer
without seeing a doctor or going to
the ER! This is good! We do remember
that one year ago this weekend,
Labor Day, Marilyn was in the
hospital. We praise God for good
Our program has experienced some
change as well. Our assignments have
been a little different this year.
Marilyn thought she might be less
busy than other years, but that has
not been the case.
The Hayes’ annual concert was
wonderful. We have watched little
Carter emerge from a newborn to an
inquisitive two year old. We got to
hear Jordan sing with his mom and
dad when he was just a little guy,
and now he is a mature young man, a
senior in high school who God has
called to be a military chaplain,
and just recently he enlisted in the
Labor Day weekend Woodrow Kroll and
Jimmy DeYoung were to share the
program; however, Woodrow was
stranded in North Carolina since all
flights were canceled due to
Hurricane Earl, so Dr. DeYoung gave
all of the messages. We saw no
negative effects from the hurricane,
and we are thankful.
Marilyn requested that a bench be
placed near the cherubs which were
installed last year. When she was
asked to check out the placement of
the bench, she went quickly to take
a picture only to discover that the
bench was already in use! Obviously
it was placed just fine!
We have had some time for
extra-curricular events as well.
This summer we attended a Garrison
Keillor concert, toured the
community of Ocean Grove, and took a
lunch cruise on the River Lady with
a group from the Keswick campground.
As we entered the lunch room on the
riverboat, we saw a painting done by
Judith Dickinson, the daughter of
Pastor Bill and Ruth Raws. I
couldn’t resist taking a picture of
the painting since I almost know the
Keswick was sold out for Labor Day
weekend, including the campground;
therefore, the Sowers (Servants on
Wheels Ever Ready), a volunteer
group, was asked to move to our
area. Our rig is the one way in the
back. That’s our little RAV4 up in
front. Please notice the gorgeous
sky and beautiful setting we have
enjoyed all summer.
Marilyn’s foot surgery is scheduled
for November 8 in the Redlands area.
We would appreciate your prayers
that all will go well with minimal
pain and quick healing. We are
thankful that Marilyn was able to
connect with Dr. Bill Bunnell. He
will be her surgeon. We’re certain
that Dr. Bunnell will appreciate
your prayer as well.
We are happy to announce that Glen
has been invited to play the part of
Ebenezer Scrooge in ‘Scrooge’ at
LifeHouse Theater. The play will
begin on December 11 and play
through December 17 at Clock
Auditorium in Redlands, CA.
We will leave NJ on September 7th
and plan to arrive in Redlands on
October 1. We plan to visit family
in Indianapolis, Niles, Michigan,
and Overland Park, KS on the way.
We would appreciate your prayers for
a safe and medically uneventful
Glen and Marilyn Heavilin
