Jesus was a Master at giving us
pictures and stories that are memorable.
"Come after me and I will
make you fishers of men."
Can you see it in your mind's eye?
Fishing MEN?!!!! and women of course!
My sister Peggy, her husband Charlie,
my husband Luigi and my sister Meldy's husband
and I, are part of a prison ministry.
The first time we went to the QC Jail,
one man stood out.
His name was Boy Tambuli,
and he was leading the praise and worship
with a lot of zeal and gusto.
He knew the Bible and when we
were groping for a verse,

Charlie, Boy, Peggy and I. in front of the jail.

FISHERMAN of men!
He said if not for his stint in jail,
he would not be a Christian.
Like Jesus, Boy has a story to tell!
When we become FISHERMEN,
God will be well pleased with us.
We are, after all,
following in His footsteps!
What father would not be pleased with that?!
And we too, have a story to tell!
