Honduras–fisheries

The northern Honduras coast usually is washed by a gentle surf of the Caribbean Sea. The coast has four small, shallow lagoons and one large lagoon. Honduras has fisheries for crustaceans and mollusks along its north coast and in the Gulf of Fonseca in the south.

John 21:4-14 (NIV)

4 Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.

5 He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?”

“No,” they answered.

6 He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.

7 Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, “It is the Lord,” he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water. 8 The other disciples followed in the boat, towing the net full of fish, for they were not far from shore, about a hundred yards. 9 When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread.

10 Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you have just caught.” 11 So Simon Peter climbed back into the boat and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn. 12 Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. 13 Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. 14 This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead.

“Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.”
Father, send evangelists to the fishermen of Honduras and give them specific instructions for the harvest.
“It is the Lord!”
May the fishermen of Honduras recognize who You are.
“Bring some of the fish you have just caught.”
May the evangelists make disciples. baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
“Come and have breakfast.”
May the fishermen of Honduras devote themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. Amen.
