In 2018, the vision that Don Jaeger and the Glennon House staff had to expand and relocate to downtown Orlando became a reality!
One of the first things we had to do was to come up with a new name for the ministry. Unfortunately, our staff was unable to decide on a name that everyone agreed on. When we were beginning to wonder if we would ever come up with a name, we received a call from David and Beth Ann Wilbur.
David and Beth Ann had been recipients of healing prayer during one of The Glennon House’s Healing Workshops. When they heard that we were starting a new healing ministry they believed that God wanted them to reach out to us.
On January 31, 2008, David and Beth Ann received the news that she had a mass in her pancreatic region. After seeing a surgeon, the outlook was grim. That same weekend The Glennon House was offering a Healing Mission. David and Beth Ann were encouraged to attend the healing teaching sessions and private prayer was arranged for her. After, she received prayer her entire perspective on the diagnosis changed. She believed in the healing power of Jesus and knew that He was in control of the situation.
The next week, Beth Ann was scheduled to have an endoscopic ultrasound to determine the plan for surgery. The scans were read and re-read by the hospital radiologists. The doctors were baffled! The mass was completely gone!
Beth Ann’s healing journey with Jesus, through this minefield of the medical diagnosis, inspired her to create a healing prayer ministry in Birmingham, Alabama. The ministry was based on the Scripture verse from Psalms 16:5-6 “Lord, You alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine. The land you have given me is a pleasant land. What a wonderful inheritance.”
The ministry that Beth Ann started was called “Inheritance House.” She generously offered us the name of the ministry which we changed slightly by adding a “The” in front of it. We brought the name up to our staff. And we were excited when 100% of the staff agreed that the name was a perfect representation of the ministry we were beginning.
One part of this whole name story, that touched all of our hearts, was that by offering us the name Beth Ann’s healing journey was coming back full circle to its roots. We believe that through David and Beth Ann, God was offering this new ministry His inheritance of blessing and healing to us!
That is our amazing name story from God to this ministry. Only He could have pulled this one off!
