The Lindermans' home
|The Lindermans' home|
Austin leaves his home.
Austin tells Dallas about when he left home. Austin's mother lies on her deathbed, dying of cancer. Austin unwittingly uses his healing ability on her. When Austin tells his father it was him--not God--who answered their prayers, his parents become fearful. Austin can't stand the tension, so he leaves home.
- Austin's family seems to be deeply Christian. In Austin's mother's room, there is a picture of Jesus, a statue of Jesus, a cross on the wall, and a framed picture of a cross. Also, after Austin heals his mother (who wears a cross around her neck), Austin's father says that God answered their prayers.
