“The kind and humble citizen who found Christopher was really a special and Guardian Angel who was in the right place at the right time. He was such a humble and kind person that I don’t want to mention his name,” Sowell said.
“There were many nice visits to him and I thanked him for being there. He replied that God told him in the Bible study last night to look for him and he would find him. This morning the man did that and the rest was fun end of this story. “
Texas EquuSearch founder Tim Miller told KHOU he was willing to give up the desperate search for Christopher.
“In my 21 years at EquuSearch, this is only the second time we’ve had a child like this. Now, this morning, sheriff, honestly, I gave up,” Miller said. “But God works amazing. I’ve got goosebumps. He’s doing amazing. To see him and hear that loud shout, sheriff, it’s unbelievable.”
