... case when the bus is already en-route as far as I can tell). While we were waiting, some random guy came up to the van and started commenting about how one of the people in the van looked like they had been saved, and had Jesus in them, and he started going on about the Holy Spirit.

Leper colonies were also forced to go there from Cape town.
