The Starfish Story...

This story never gets old to me..
I always get goosebumps as I tell it or hear it. 

One day a man was walking along the beach 
when he noticed a boy picking something up 
and gently throwing it into the ocean. 
Approaching the boy, he asked, 
"What are you doing?"
The youth replied, 
"Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out.  
If I don't throw them back, they'll die."
"Son," the man said, "don't you realize 
there are miles and miles of beach 
and hundreds of starfish? You can't make a difference!"
After listening politely, 
the boy bent down, picked up another starfish,
and threw it back into the surf.  
Then, smiling at the man, he said...
"It made a difference to that one."

My Missionaries are making a Difference
in many lives and in their own life.
Helping people Come Unto Christ
one sweet soul at a time... 
is the greatest joy we can have
and the ripple affect is fantastic!
