The little mosquito that could.

“If you think you are too small to be effective, you have never been in bed with a mosquito.”

Betty Reese

I’ll never forget the trip I took to India back in 1997.  I went on a mission trip/pastor’s conference with my dad and a few others.  We didn’t stay at a Marriott or Hilton.  And, my toilet paper wasn’t folded into a nice “V” shape like I prefer.  Nope.  It was some primitive living with cold showers, in-ground toilets, and rice, rice and more rice. 

One night, my mosquito repellent thingy had been unknowingly turned upside down, thus, making it perpetually useless.

I awakened the next morning to numerous mosquito bites all over my body.  You heard me.  All over.  I looked like I had the chicken pox all over again. 

Moral of the story: 

Always check your mosquito repellent thingy and never doubt your ability to make an impact.
