Stephen found 3 young children who had been heavily injured trying to stop a lynching of a young black boy.
They had tried to stop the boy's hanging by cutting the rope. In response, the mob beat them almost to death. They succeeded on stopping the hanging.
When Stephen found them, he healed them, and took them in. Over the next 5 decades, he trained them, educated them, and eventually all 3 of them succeeded in the Purification ritual.
Their names were Matthew, Jack, & Emily
