After two months of living in town, I moved into the hollow. Josh Armstrong, who by this time had become a good friend, helped me find a place. The five-room house we found was one of several in a coal camp. The mine had been closed for years, but the houses surrounding it were still occupied.

Sanctification is to be set apart for a sacred purpose. Sanctification is to be free from sin.
