Clergy Column

I became a Christian as a freshman at Millersville State College (now Millersville University). During my junior year I began attending Grace Baptist Church of Millersville. One feature that I liked about the church was the opportunity on Sunday evenings to give testimonies. The pastor, Herb Samworth, would invite anyone who so desired to share with the church what God was doing in his or her life. More often than not, Mrs. Mary Virginia Heissey would raise her hand. When called upon by the pastor, she would say, “I am a sinner, and I am so thankful that Jesus is my Savior.”
