Date: Jun 19, 1996, around midnight CDT Our pastors where there again this year, and had to take Tiffany, their 8 year old daughter with brain tumors. Between treatments (which they have stopped) and the tumors returning after an operation, she was in a lot of pain, extremely listless, hates to move. But twice, after prayer (once at camp by half the camp!) and once at church right after we returned, she ended up dancing with the youth (and some adults - yeehah!) in the ``worship pit''. God had spoken that she would be the means of turning many of His peoples' hearts towards revival (she has been) and that she is healed. Her family (the Halls) have been battling a lot of things - fear, depression, etc, but are trusting God to do what He has spoken. Meanwhile, a lot of people have gotten a lot more serious about seeking God because of Tiffany's condition. ... He has also spoken to several of us about this: We need faith to raise the dead. What the physical-temporal ramifications of this for Tiffany are I don't know, but He has told several of us this is what we need. According to the doctors, she's already just walking dead. This isn't an overnight thing - we have to be in it for the long haul.The Lord made it clear those statements were for the long haul.
Tiffany slept very little during camp, and when she did sleep, she cried and moaned, so whichever of her parents was there that night got little or no sleep. The final morning of camp, Tiffany was in such pain that the Halls swapped out for a car (they had driven one of the big vanloads of kids up) and lit out for Austin while we were still packing up, to get Tiffany back to her doctor in Austin (we were in Oklahome City).
