Glen and Aula Haynie - Mission Call

Contributor: trishkovach Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

I was serving as Bishop of the Orem Utah 9th Ward when, in General Conference, President Spencer W Kimball called upon the older members of the Church to step up and serve as full-time missionaries. He asked for at least one couple per ward to serve. The week following Conference, the Haynies came to my office and asked to speak with me. They told me they had looked over the ward list and they felt they were the only couple in the ward that could accept President Kimball’s call to serve. At that time, Brother Haynie was about 83 years of age and Sister Haynie would have been about 78. I made the mistake of thanking the Haynies for their offer and then telling them they were probably too old to serve. They informed me that no one was ever too old to serve the Lord and they wanted to go. Seeing I could not reason with them, I told them I would contact our Stake President. That evening I called Henry W Rock, President of the Orem Utah West Stake. I told them of the Haynie’s offer to serve and he immediately told me to inform the Haynies that the Lord was pleased with their offer, but they were simply too old to serve. “I tried that,” I told him. “It didn’t work. You tell them.” He sighed and said, “Send them in.” The rest of the story (as Paul Harvey used to say), was later told me by President Rock. Brother and Sister Haynie met with the President. He thanked them for their offer, but informed them that even though President Kimball had called for senior couples, he didn’t mean a couple as “senior” as the Haynies were. He was prepared to send them on their way when Aula turned to her husband and said, “Come on, Glen. We’ll call Spencer and Camilla.” “What did you say?” President Rock asked her. “We will call President and Sister Kimball and talk to them,” she said. “We have their private phone number.” “How do you happen to have the private phone number of President and Sister Kimball?” he asked. “We’ve been friends for years and grew up together in the Colonies. My mother and Camilla’s mother were in a Relief Society Presidency together.” Aula said. “We’ve kept in touch and we’ll get this straightened out.” President Rock told them that a phone call to the Kimball’s would not be necessary. “I will call the Missionary Department in the morning,” he told them. True to his word, the next day President Rock called the missionary department and asked them if the Haynies were too old to serve. The department told him to give them the necessary paperwork and to get the approval of their doctor. “If he approves them,” they said, “we will send them." A few weeks later Glen and Aula Haynie received their mission call to serve as full-time missionaries in Texas, working with Spanish-speaking members and investigators. They were the oldest couple to that time to ever enter the Missionary Training Center in Provo. As a side note, one of Glen’s biggest concerns was that he couldn’t find his Spanish Bible and would have to go buy another one. Having returned from serving in Mexico a few years earlier, I told him my Bible would like to go on a second mission. He accepted my offer and, upon his honorable release, returned my Bible to me. “Hope you don’t mind a few extra passages marked,” he told me. “There were some things I just had to emphasize and color in.” Bud Wood, Bishop, Orem 9th Ward Orem Utah West Stake 1978-1982

1896
Glen Calhoun Haynie was born on 23 Apr 1896
Glen Calhoun Haynie was 12 years old when Ford puts the Model T car on the market at a price of US$825. Ford Motor Company is an American multinational automaker headquartered in Dearborn, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. It was founded by Henry Ford and incorporated on June 16, 1903. The company sells automobiles and commercial vehicles under the Ford brand and most luxury cars under the Lincoln brand. Ford also owns Brazilian SUV manufacturer Troller, an 8% stake in Aston Martin of the United Kingdom, and a 49% stake in Jiangling Motors of China.

Glen Calhoun Haynie was 21 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
Glen Calhoun Haynie was 33 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
Glen Calhoun Haynie was 43 years old when Adolf Hitler signs an order to begin the systematic euthanasia of mentally ill and disabled people. Adolf Hitler was a German politician, demagogue, and Pan-German revolutionary, who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Führer ("Leader") of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator, Hitler initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939, and was central to the Holocaust.
Glen Calhoun Haynie was 49 years old when World War II: Hiroshima, Japan is devastated when the atomic bomb "Little Boy" is dropped by the United States B-29 Enola Gay. Around 70,000 people are killed instantly, and some tens of thousands die in subsequent years from burns and radiation poisoning. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Glen Calhoun Haynie was 61 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
Glen Calhoun Haynie was 68 years old when John F. Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas, Texas; hours later, Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn in aboard Air Force One as the 36th President of the United States. John Fitzgerald Kennedy, commonly referred to by his initials JFK, was an American politician who served as the 35th President of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination in November 1963. He served at the height of the Cold War, and the majority of his presidency dealt with managing relations with the Soviet Union. As a member of the Democratic Party, Kennedy represented the state of Massachusetts in the United States House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate prior to becoming president.
