How Do Fishermen Cast Their Nets?

This is how they do it in Takarodi, Ghana on the Atlantic Ocean.

Matthew 4:18-22

18And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
19And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
20And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.
21And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.
22And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.

They answered his divine call. "And they straightway left their nets, and followed him."
The Savior's invitation to "follow" is ultimately a challenge to become like Him — to develop His characteristics. Such an invitation applies as much to us as to the Apostles of old.

In our previous mission to the West Indies, which was settled by the peoples of Africa, we were able to capture these fishing shots early one morning before Zone Conference in St. Lucia.
