It has been said that if you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. But if you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.
In Haiti, there are lots of fisherman who know how to fish but lack access to the resources that make it possible for them to fish.
How our fishing ministry works:
- We identify men of Christian character for whom a boat and/or other fishing equipment (nets, line, etc.) would be a blessing.
- Matthew 25 Ministries Director Gary speaks to the men and makes a plan for securing a boat or other items to enable them to feed themselves, their family, and to sell fish at market.
- The fishermen agrees to share a portion of his catch with the Matthew 25 House in order to create an increased sense of purpose in his fishing as ministry and to create community participation in the ministries of Supply and Multiply, as well as offset the cost of running the Matthew 25 House program.
