THE ANIMAL SAVER

It is said, that Solomon could hear the spirit of animals and know their language. If Solomon could hear their voices, then Frank Hoffman can hear their cries. All men are burdened by some purpose in life, but few abandon their own lives, to follow it.

A burden is given by The Holy Spirit and is assigned to an individual, who possesses the will to carry it out and are given the gifts to achieve it. The only remaining question is, will the called warrior answer.

A mission is a lonely work. Praise is hard to receive, because the crusader only wants to complete his task. Some tasks cannot be finished, because it is an ongoing work and will continue until the judgement of mankind. So, it is enough just to work the work, fulfilling Godís purpose under the crusaderís watch.

This is the most difficult type of mission, the one that has no certain completion date. The warrior keeps working, seemingly without reward, waiting for some sign, that he is succeeding by the visible accomplishment of his task.

A crusader, cannot often see, that the people that are drawn to him by his example, are themselves advanced payment of his reward from his Maker. Not only are they there to hold up his hands, but to reaffirm that his work is good and that he is making a difference, maybe not to his satisfaction, but to Godís satisfaction.

The Lord knows what the crusader is up against before he is called. The nature of our world makes it impossible to reach every soul, man or beast. But to those that are not turned by the crusaderís cause, they are accountable and maybe, just maybeÖthat is the purpose of his calling.
