Starfish Ministries OC
is based at Rose Drive Friends Church in Yorba Linda, California. We take our name from the story by Loren Eiseley about the thousands of starfish washed up on the beach (http://muttcats.com/starfish.htm
) and the one boy who makes a difference to one starfish at a time.
There are 143 million orphans on the planet today. Some are as close as next door, and others are many thousands of miles away in a faraway land. Wherever they may be located, God's answer to the orphan's plight is you and me - individual believers who choose to follow the clear directives laid out for us in Scripture. God will call each of us in different ways. Some of us will host an orphan in our home. Some of us will be called to short-term missions. Others might be called to foster care or crisis care, or to provide financial support to meet orphans' material needs. Some of us will be called to pray, and some of us to actually adopt a child and bring that child into our families.
However God calls you, the important thing is to be faithful to heed the call and follow Him. God's heart is with the orphan. Is yours?
