Mission Nugget - Ministers and Missionaries Offering Month
“When a local preacher died, his relatives found he had neatly tied up the messages he had delivered and placed a card on top of them with this inscription: ‘Where has the influence gone of all these sermons I have preached?’ Underneath he had scribbled in large letters, ‘OVER’. On the other side this answer was found: ‘Where are last year’s sunrays? They have gone into fruits and grain and vegetables to feed mankind. Where are last year’s raindrops? Forgotten by most people, of course, but they did their refreshing work, and their influence still abides.’”
