STORY BEHIND THE PHOTO:

This precious picture was taken while out on a little pleasure trip on the sea with some friends. When I saw these local men fishing, and struggling to find fish, it reminded me of these words spoken by our Master when He called the first disciples so many years ago. Some mixed emotions filled my heart, as I realized what a joy and privilege to fish for men, yet at the same time what a struggle to really follow Jesus in laying down our lives totally!

About the author

We did pastoral work on the little island of Mauritius for four years but returned to South Africa in September 2014. Since December we are working on the South Coast of Kwazulu Natal where my husband is the director for Crusade for Christ (an indigenous mission) and I coordinate the ministry of Silver Oaks Retreat and Conference Center. We see ourselves called to equip the saints to do the works God has gifted them to do (Ephesians 4:12) Our main ministry is to Xhosa and Zulu folk and we feel honored to serve the Lord for this season in this place.
