For a few days the matter was in doubt. Springer seemed to follow the group
of orcas from a distance. Sometimes when she would see a boat she would
remember the kindness shown to her by human beings and follow it instead.
Then everything changed for the better. A mature female orca without a calf

one occasion the female appeared to be scolding Springer when she approached

perish, but that all should come to repentance”.(2 Peter 3:9). Won’t you be
one that finds his way home to God the Father through the Lord Jesus Christ
so that heaven has a reason to rejoice?
