Excerpt: In June a lightning strike hit a heating and air conditioning unit causing $80,000 in damage, in addition to smoke and water damage...also ruining a recent $250,000 window upgrade. The sisters are "homeless" and are residing in trailers. How did the sisters react to the fire? While working the fire and then surveying the damage, a firefighter reported, "They had so many cookies and cakes," Ballina said. "You name it, they had it, plus they were running around with Gatorade and water."

"It is through prayer and worship that God is not merely known about, but known and experienced."
