Lillian (Lilly) stayed in contact with Echo and Emmy, albeit through the internet. So far, they have taught her some of the Chinese alphabet and much about Star Trek. Lilly considers them two of her close friends.
The Carrigs’ online church was up and running the very next Sunday after the events documented herein. Once word got out to members overseas, their church blossomed wildly and continues to grow at a great rate of speed with hundreds attending regularly.
The rescue mission had no known repercussions for Lilly, Mr. Hill or their trusty friend, Bo Wu-Cambridge.
Lilly’s final words are: Be helpful to those around you in ways big and small. Be sure you share the Gospel with everyone you can and encourage people to pray and read the Bible. Don’t desert your friends when times get tough for them, and never be influenced to do that which saddens God’s heart.
