Even if you don’t believe in faith, there were certainly situations in your life that made you think that you somehow found yourself in the right place at the right time, right?

This is the incredible story of James Nowlin, a senior U.S. Federal District Judge, living in Red Rock, Texas.

This 83-year-old man wanted to get his trash out one day. However, the weather was pretty bad and it was snowing heavily, something very untypical for this part of the country, and James thought it would be for the best if he used his car to get to the end of his driveway as it was pretty much a long way for someone his age.

Speaking to the KVUE, James said: “I was in the process of moving it out the front gate kind of across that cattle guard, but I was trying to stay away from the cattle guard.” Unfortunately, as he was doing his best to avoid the cattle guard, he fell on the ground. His left foot went under him and he was unable to move.

What’s most, there was no one inside the house and James was only wearing a sweatshirt and sweatpants as he believed he would get back inside in just a couple of minutes. On top of that, he didn’t have his phone with him.

“I could not get on my feet to get back to the car or basically to move anywhere other than push myself with my hands on my butt … which I did back up across the cattle guard to my car … which is parked maybe 50, 60 feet away inside the gate. So I got up to the car thinking I could grab hold of the door handle on the driver’s side and pull myself up. I was unable to do that,” he explained.

James spent over an hour on the ground and got really scared, but then, “an angel and a saint” in the form of an Amazon driver spotted the vulnerable man.

Elisha Infante was driving down one of the country roads in Red Rock and noticed James. She pulled her vehicle over and rushed to offer him help. Elisha took off her coat and wrapped it around James and called 911.

Luckily, it didn’t take long before the medics arrived and rushed James to the hospital where he had undergone a surgery for a fractured femur.

“I thought, ‘That’s somebody’s grandpa,’” Elisha told KVUE. “I know something or somebody put me there, I know that for a fact because I know what I felt and I know a lot of people don’t believe in faith or they don’t believe in stories like this. But it’s real, you know? Somebody sent me there. I never go to Red Rock, ever.”

James knew that if it wasn’t for this amazing lady, he could have easily died in the snow. That’s why, he offered her his thank you by buying her the car she had been saving for. Isn’t that incredible?

Elisha says she will use her car not only to drive herself to work, but also to volunteer with Meals on Wheels and provide medical transports for a local pet rescue. We all need to be Elisha!
