We will make this Friday a photo day again (another post about some more special visitors to the PRC Seminary will be forthcoming), with the winning entries of Smithsonian’s 13th annual photo contest. There are some amazing pictures here, so be sure to browse the entire collection as well as the top ones.
Here is one of the winning photos:
7. Winner, The American Experience: Trucker Chapel. Truck driver Ben Blackburn, 46, participates in a Bible study session at the Transport For Christ (TFC) mobile chapel in Lodi, Ohio, on October 23, 2013. TFC chaplains helped Blackburn enroll in trucking school after he lost his job during the recent economic recession. Transport For Christ, an international trucker ministry, has placed 45 mobile chapels at truck stops across the United States. The chapels offer Bible study, worship services and counseling from volunteer chaplains. They also give drivers a break from the struggles and solitude of life on the road. Photographed by Lauren Pond. #
