Connections and You, Inc.
A word from our Founder
I have learned that children need a consistent, positive, and influential person in their lives in order to effect change. All they want to know is that there is somebody out there that cares and willing to do close to anything to help them and their issues. I believe that we not only need to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ in words, but we also need to spread the gospel in our actions.
Connections and You, Inc. is here to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Not only will we teach children the way of Christ, but we will show them how much He loves and cares for them. It is our intention to create an atmosphere of security and stability for a child that is in need.
We are committed to seeing that these children grow into productive, stable adults, and become what God has called them to be. Pray with us as we continue to seek God concerning his little ones.
"The Starfish Story"
A well-known author was vacationing on a beautiful coast. One morning, very early, he was walking along the beach.
In the distance, he saw a lone figure dancing. Fascinated by this celebration of the dawn, he moved closer.
It was then that he realized that a young man was not dancing, but was picking objects up from the beach and tossing them out into the sea with a graceful movement.
As he approached the young man, he saw that he was throwing starfish. "Why in the world are you throwing starfish into the water," he asked.
"If the starfish are still on the beach when the tide goes out and the sun rises higher in the sky, they will die," replied the young man as he continued tossing them out to sea.
"That's ridiculous! There are thousands of miles of beach and millions of starfish. You can't really believe that what you are doing could possibly make a difference?"
The young man picked up another starfish, paused thoughtfully, and remarked as he tossed it out into the waves,
"It makes a difference to this one."

One hundred years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove....but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. -Anon.
