Dawson Trotman, founder of the Navigators, tells the story of a 23 year old Sailor that he spent time discipling. He spent many hours with this young man in the Word and the importance of being a witness for the Lord and leading other sailors to Jesus.

A month later the sailor returned to Dawson: "I can't get any of these guys on the ship to get down to business." Dawson replied: "Listen, you ask God to give you one. You can't have two until you have one. Ask God to give you a man after your own heart."

He began to pray. One day he came to Dawson and said "I think I've found him." The young man came to Dawson and eventually he received the Lord. Then as these two young men continued to grow, they also continued to spiritually reproduce. Eventually, 125 men from that very ship found the Savior. Men off that first battleship are in four continents of the world as missionaries today. What was the key? Prayer for ONE man -- just ONE.
