This photo shows up in This Ordinary Adventure:

Behind this image is a story of a break-down in the middle of a South African wasteland, a putrid night in a train station, a nearly-missed Christmas celebration, a saved life, and a reminder that God has plans far beyond our own.

Here’s the story at our friend Stephanie’s blog.
