When John and Jill Simms relocated from North Carolina to Nevada, they were looking forward to the desert. They thought the dry desert air would improve John’s health and be an enormous relief from North Carolina in the winter. The health issues that hit Jill soon after the move would take their faith in God to higher levels than they had ever imagined.
