Starfish of Orphanage 42

Are you familiar with the Starfish Story? This story of a young man standing by the ocean side throwing starfish back into the water. An elderly gentleman approches him and asks him what was he doing and the young man replied throwing the starfish back into the water. The sun is up and the tide is going down surely they will die. The older gentleman comments "There are too many and you will never be able to get them all back in the water." The young man picks up a starfish and throws it back into the ocean and says "I made a difference for that one."

How many times have you had the opportunity to make a Starfish Story? If we look into our daily lifes we surely have all had the chance to help someone and make a difference in someway. Regardless of how insignificant it may have seemed to others.

I would like you to meet the Starfish of Orphange 42......







This six children are all looking to be saved from institutions and into a home safely where they belong.
Surely they all have a mom and dad out there that can rescue them from that sunrise. To give them the opportunity to live in a family just like the starfish the boy in the story rescued. Could this be you? Are you willing to make a difference for them?

" For the Lord is a Great God...the sea is his, and he made it." Psalm 95: 3,5
