Billy Fletcher has had quite an experience. He had been out for supper with friends at Larkin’s last Tuesday evening. When he returned home and stepped out of his vehicle on to the concrete floor of the garage, his foot gave way and he fell. He could not get up. So he got out his cell phone and it said, “No charge.” Billy prayed, “Lord, Just let me make one call.” He was able to call his aunt, Jean Daugherty, who called the paramedics. Billy said that his cell phone was dead after that call. It was not long until the paramedics were there. A call was also made to Edgar Stewart, who came. There were neighbors who came to see what was going on. So they all helped get Billy up and into Edgar Stewart’s vehicle. He visited the emergency room and was released after they determined that he did not have anything broken. Billy said that now he recharges his phone every night and he agreed that the Lord was looking out for him.
