The Work of the RESCUE

Tugboats lie at anchor in Belfast Maine Harbor. They reminded us of the children's story, Little Toot by Gramatky. Little Toot loves to play and make figure 8's in the water. His play leads him to be rejected by fellow tugboats and into a completely dejected life adrift in the ocean. He changes as he has an opportunity to save a shipwrecked ocean liner. Sometimes our missionaries struggle to learn how to work but when they take the opportunity to help in the "rescue" of someone shipwrecked by sin or sorrow, they learn the age old lesson, "Work, work, work--there is no satisfactory substitute, especially in missionary work!" (President Ezra Taft Benson)
