Fr. George Heinemann, SVD (+1995) was once a missionary to China before going to the Philippines. During the war in China, missionaries as prisoners were transferred over the mountainous trails to Western China. The truck, with missionaries on top, lost breaking power. As the track was heading for the ravine, Father George walking beside it, tried to stop it with rock but that did not stop the truck; so, he threw his body in front of the wheel risking his life. By God’s strength he stopped the truck. Such a hero was Fr. George! (Remembering Philippine SVD Missionaries who Have Gone Ahead, 154)
