"When he saw the crowds, he was deeply moved with compassion for them, because they were troubled and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd." Matthew 9:36  I was caught in a feeling of bewilderment that day as I looked out over the crowd at the school in the small, poverty stricken country of El Salvador.   I felt as though I had caught a glimpse of how Jesus must have felt; I too was moved with compassion at this sea of faces.  The thing is, Jesus knew the hearts of His multitude, He knew each individual need and how to meet it.  I, on the other hand didn't even speak their language, how could I possibly make a difference in even one of these precious ones?  It was then I realized they were His sheep and all He called me to do was point them to the Shepherd.
