Thursday Evening, March 23
We were seated in the Garden Room at Brickerville House Restaurant on the evening we blessed Marv and Sue Shenk (back left and right). We chose Brian and Amy Heisey as a family from our church that we would like to know better.
Clockwise – left to right: Marv, Brian, Amy, Berwyn, Andrea, me, Amanda, and Sue.
Marv and Sue own a peach orchard, so we learned more about the work involved with that. One interesting thing Marv said is that when he and their son, Doug, prune trees, Doug always does the south side of the trees and Marv always trims the north side. He is not sure why, but it is how they always do it.
Sue and I learned that we both got very involved in our heritage with Ancestry.com or My Heritage.com this past winter. We both traced family back to Germany and Switzerland during the time when our ancestors were being jailed and persecuted.
Amy enjoys reading and homeschooling their children and grew up on a farm in Illinois. She and Brian met in Bible school. Amanda said she would rather cook than clean. Andrea and Berwyn quietly listened to our chatter while coloring their placemats.
Brian works for Martin Appliance and enjoys repairing appliances and most mechanical things that need fixed. He told a funny story of needing a part for their home air conditioner.
He was pleased to find just what he needed on EBay. I think it was the next day when one of his coworkers asked how he wanted his air conditioner part shipped. It was coming from a Martin Appliance warehouse. 🙂
They have two older children and have named all the boys with a name beginning with the letter B and all the girls with the letter A – maybe because it matches their names – Brian and Amy.
We all exclaimed over Marv and Sue’s delicious-looking chicken pies.
Oh, what a delightful way to spend an evening.
If you do not know or remember why we are blessing our nine preachers, enter the word preacher in the search section on the top right of this entry. It should bring up the three previous evenings we spent with preachers and other couples from our church.
