A Wisconsin bus driver is being hailed as a hero after she rescued two siblings found wandering in the snow during last week’s cold snap. Nicole Chamberlain said she found a 6-year-old boy and his 2-year-old sister in Waukesha, not properly dressed for the cold. At the time the temperature was 18 degrees, according to local news reports. The girl was only wearing a T-shirt, boots and her diaper.

 

Bus surveillance video shows Chamberlain scoop up the girl and put the two on the bus for warmth. Chamberlain wrapped her coat around the girl. "I said, 'What's going on?' and they said, 'We're looking for grandma.' I said, 'Come with me, I'm gonna put you on the warm bus, and I'll help you find grandma.' And so they came with me," Chamberlain said. "I picked them up and put them on my bus and called the police."

 

Police said the kids' grandmother was watching them but when she went in the basement for a moment, they headed outside to look for her. Within minutes, the grateful grandmother arrived at the bus and explained to police that the two had wandered away from home.

 

Chamberlain said she was glad her bus route took her past the right place at the right time. "If that were to happen to my children, I would hope that there would be somebody, a decent human being, that would stop and help my kids," she said. Police said they were not recommending charges in the case.

 

All’s well that ends well.  Those wandering children were found and brought back home.  Somebody was watching out for them!

 

Little children are not the only ones who wander.  And frigid cold is not the only threat.

 

God is a good, good father who keeps watch over his children. He doesn’t want us to wander and be lost. For that reason he sent his son to be the savior of the world.  For that same reason he sends those of us who have been rescued to bring back home those who wander.

 

He calls us to “watch out for wanderers!” That will be our theme this Sunday at Istrouma as we focus on James 5:19-20. Be sure to join us! 

 

James: Practical Spirituality

“Watch out for Wanderers!”

James 5:19-20

 

  1. A temptation to avoid

 

My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth . . . (5:19a).

 

  1. There is universal guilt

 

  1. There is unlimited grace

 

 

  1. A task to accept

 

. . . and someone brings him back (5:19b).

 

  1. God is recruiting workers

 

  1. God is restoring wanderers

 

 

  1. A truth to announce

 

Let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins (5:20).

 

  1. There is joy in service
  2. There is joy in salvation
