I just got off the phone with my Dad, Clifford Hall, who is a very active member of the Wally Byam Caravan Club International (www.wbcci.org ) for Airstream trailer enthusiasts. He and my step-mom Gail had been out at a Chili-Cook-Off Airstream camp-out down near Houston this weekend.
Anyway, Friday morning, behind them was another trailer. A man was sitting outside, and Dad realized that he didn't know him, so went over to get acquainted. They talked about many things and other guys came and went. At some point, they discussed grandchildren. Dad told him about Matt, Jake, Josh, and eventually got around to Jessie and her battle with Rasmussen's Encephalitis. Suddenly, the man asked, "What is her name?" When Dad told him , he was amazed. The man said, "We have been praying for her for a month."
Dad asked, how he had heard about Jessie. The man explained that he had been on a caravan to the Region 9 rally about a month ago and someone mentioned praying for her. He said that Jessie had been on his mind ever since. He was asked to be the speaker at the devotional service that morning and he talked a lot about divine intervention and a reason for things happening. He told all he knew about Jessie.
We want to extend our thanks to the Wally Byam Caravan Club International and to all the people who have raised Jessie up in prayer. We knew that our daughter was special, but we had no idea the number of lives that she is touching.
God Bless all of you.
Kristi and Cris Hall
