One evening last fall, Julie Weldon and Stacey Pierce, a married couple from South Carolina, were on their knees praying inside an RV, their last major possession, while parked at a campsite outside San Diego.
With tear-streaked cheeks and puffy eyes, the women felt beat down and broken. They prayed for more strength. They prayed for just a bit more endurance after having come so far. They prayed they had what it would take to keep putting one foot in front of the other to reach their finish line.
