I did my best. It went well. But it is so little, a mere drop, measured against the ocean of need. My heart aches for every one of those kids. And I can't help thinking of Jesus's saying, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into the harvest."
