Without help, Boo would surely perish.
Do you know that souls who haven’t been saved by believing in
the Lord Jesus are orphans too. Because they haven’t placed their faith in
the Son of God, they cannot know God as their Father. Not knowing God as
their Father they are spiritual orphans. Boo was in trouble and in danger of
perishing, and every soul outside of Christ is in danger of perishing in
hell. If you are outside of Christ, why don't turn to Him Who is mighty to
save. The moment a person believes on the Son of God, the blood that was
shed on the cross washes away all their sins, and the Holy Spirit comes into
their hearts and brings them into relationship with God their Father. “And
because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your
hearts, crying, Abba, Father.” (Gal 4:6) How happy it is whenever a soul
comes to Christ and learns of the Father’s love.
Let’s find out if Boo’s story has a happy ending. You know she had another
name also. Scientists keep a close eye on the orcas in the Pacific
Northwest. When a new baby is born they give it a number and also a name.
Boo’s number was A-73 and they had named her Springer. They could also
identify what pod of orcas Springer belonged to because each pod makes a
unique chirping sound when they swim. Boo, or Springer as we will now call
her, belonged to A-pod which spent a good part of the year off the west
coast of Canada in Johnstone Strait.
After weeks of swimming alone, the time to take action to rescue the baby
whale finally arrived. Men in a row boat coaxed Springer into a type of fish
pen. Orcas are extremely intelligent and when they are young are easily
managed. Enclosed in the fish pen, biologists fed her a steady diet and gave
her medicine to make her healthy. Being well cared for, she rapidly put on a
hundred pounds of weight.
