    I am doing all I can Willow to spread that thought - many I meet are 'overwhelmed' with the huge need but I try to help them to see that looking for and helping that 'one' applied expendentially would see the whole world changed - He gives us a task that is not too difficult for us and a burden not to heavy for us to bear - it is a joy to find that 'one', help them walk their journey and to help bear their burdens...Blessings on the work you do Willow
