A train’s whistle sounds in the distance, what do you remember? How does it make you feel?
For Rachel Crews, a victim of domestic violence, the sound of the train’s whistle meant fear and pain. For Sam Burkett, a disfigured and disabled Army paratrooper, the sound of the whistle meant nothing at first; he was too numb from the effects of World War II. However, he soon learned to listen to the train’s whistle; the manifestation of God’s Voice.
Even though Sam and Rachel never met, God knew them and how they needed each other. Together, and with God’s help, these two people learned to heal, forget, and forgive.
