God's Will and the Ocean
The Way of Tuna
July 13, 1980 --- Belvedere
The Unification Church is very special, with its understanding of
the role of Abel. The world would never imagine that I spend a great
deal of time on the ocean to catch tuna, so before I start on the main
topic I want to talk a little about tuna. If you think some fish are
beautiful, then you would have to consider the tuna to be the beauty
queen of all fish. How many of you have ever seen tuna? Well, most of
you haven't, so you may not know what I am talking about.
Tuna are completely streamlined for fast swimming and they are the
only fish which can fold all their fins right next to their bodies when
they are swimming really quickly. It is like the concept of the
Concorde: for take-off the wings are spread out, but for cruising speed
the wings are swept back. A tuna's side fins are completely hidden when
it is speeding along, giving it a completely smooth surface. A tuna can
swim up to ninety knots, like an airplane of the ocean! Water
resistance is greater than air resistance, so airplane designers will
have to study tuna when they want to come up with ideas for more
efficient airplanes. The average cruising speed for tuna is thirty-five
Tuna do not live in just one area, but swim in all five oceans. If
the ocean were divided into sovereignties, then the tuna would be in
trouble because it would need a visa. But tuna just fly through the
water, in all five oceans of the world! Furthermore, tuna have solid
meat which is good for eating. In the future, tuna will provide food
for the world.
Tuna fishing is the king of sport fishing because it is so exciting
and thrilling. Tuna fishing is really the ultimate goal of fishermen. I
would like to generate world-wide interest in this apex of the sport by
perfecting the skill of catching tuna. You have to outsmart a tuna in
order to catch it because they are very smart fish. However, once you
master the skill, you become an addict. Even when you think you will
finally leave the fishing ground for the day, your attention is drawn
back to the area and you are eager to return.
Tuna fishing requires a boat that is from twenty-five to fifty feet
long. Getting a boat and all the necessary equipment, plus daily
expenses for fishing, requires money that only more wealthy people can
afford. Only people who have a strong interest in the ocean can
concentrate on this kind of sport fishing. For this reason, people who
can afford it always concentrate on tuna. Women of the world always
dream of having diamonds, and sports-minded men always dream of
catching tuna. Tuna fishing is more than just a sport or a hobby; it is
really a battle, and this is why I like it; you must be ready to go
after the goal and gain the victory.
A big tuna weighs over 1,000 pounds, which is six or seven times the
weight of the average person, and is thirteen to fourteen feet long.
When we pull a big tuna aboard the New Hope, it stretches diagonally
across the whole boat, touching each side. Tunas are caught with a hook
and long line, and great skill and knowledge are required to win the
battle. After long, long hours of waiting, a tuna will strike and for
that moment, you forget everything else. In Gloucester, three to five
hundred boats gather for the tuna season. People sail for months from
the West Coast and through the Panama Canal to come for tuna fishing in
Gloucester. In some cases, boats come from South America. For that
season, the richest and most famous boats assemble in Gloucester.
The fishermen are more proud of their boats than women are of their
finest jewelry. These boats each need four crew members to go along.
You can imagine that no one can afford to do that except wealthy
people; they spend all that money and time to get there just for the
excitement of catching tuna. Five hundred boats use about $50,000 worth
of bait a day. Tuna season normally lasts seventy days, and the bait
alone costs $3.5 million. If each boat is crewed by three people, that
is 1,500 people in one area. If each boat spends $500 a day for seventy
days, that is $1.5 million. This is the investment that they make in
order to have a chance to catch a part of the quota of tuna that the
government allows to be caught each year.
If the government allots 1,800 tuna and you sell each tuna for
$1,000, that is only $1.8 million. In other words, tuna fishing is not
a money-making investment. It is extraordinary to break even at tuna
fishing; it is virtually impossible. When I see the enthusiasm these
people have for tuna fishing, I think that if they loved America the
way they do fishing, it would have become the Kingdom of Heaven a long
time ago. I always think that if Americans have that kind of heart and
soul, why not harness it for kingdom-building?
During the tedious wait for a tuna to strike, people may complain
and fight, but when the tuna bites, they are instantly united as one. I
have never seen such instant unification! That is the unification
spirit I am trying to promote, so rather than just talk about it, I
particularly want Unification people to come from all over the world
and experience it.
The one thing men cannot say they have experienced is the pain of
giving birth to a child. Only women know it through experience.
However, tuna fishing is usually in the man's world, and it is
difficult for women to understand it. The rugged tuna world is far
apart from the world of make-up, manicures and jewelry. Fishermen
usually wear nothing from the waist up, and they get deep tans.
I have experienced all kinds of sports in the man's world, yet I
have never found any that was as exciting as the struggle with tuna. Do
you have an appetite for that? Not everyone can do it; you have to be
born with the traits for it. However, women can be interested in it
too. I am always studying how the American fishing industry can become
prosperous once again, so whenever I am in Gloucester I am always
planning how to interest American young people in the ocean.
Tuna season is like the Olympics of sport fishing, and I determined
that I would be a record-breaking tuna fisherman. It took me twenty-two
long days to catch my first tuna, however. There were many strikes
during that time, but for lack of experience they were all lost. When a
strike is so exciting, you can imagine how disappointing it is to lose
the fish, but then you restore your spirit and resolve to go on. When
the sun starts to sink at the end of the day, I feel like ordering the
sun to stay up so I can stay out and get another strike. You really
don't understand how I feel. If you have this kind of spirit when you
attack any task or problem, there is nothing you cannot do. Though you
lose the tuna, you just keep trying until you catch one. That's the way
When I first started out, people laughed at me as a novice. I
thought, "They should watch me for three years and see what happens."
All the professional fishermen were astonished that I broke record
after record during those three years. Now they feel threatened by this
"novice" who is having an impact on their world. They worry about what
to do with the Moonies who are stealing all the honors. They can't
stand to see us taking all the records, so they have started getting up
earlier in the mornings in order to beat us. When they discovered that
I was going out at four-thirty in the morning, they decided to go out
one-half hour earlier. But, it didn't last; after the first day, only a
few people came out at four. In the meantime, I started going out at
three-thirty in the morning. When they resolved to go earlier than
that, I started going out at two-thirty!
When you go out that early, you usually have to wait four hours
because the tuna come to breakfast on time ... their time. However, it
was a war and I went out early. Now people are giving up trying to beat
the Moonies; they know that for sheer consistency and hard work, they
cannot compete with us. What is interesting is that even with all those
boats anchored up and fishing, the first strike always comes to the
New Hope. Yesterday when I went out, it only took four minutes
for the first strike to come!
Do you have some interest in this? How about the women? If you are
interested, you have to marry a tuna fisherman to enter that world.
Those who don't know the taste of tuna fishing don't really know the
taste of life. When the interest in tuna is so great, will the number
of people getting involved start to shrink, or become greater? A person
with a really masculine character who tastes the spirit of tuna fishing
wants to go out each day, regardless of how rough the sea is. This is
the fundamental attitude of the men of the ocean. When you know this
thrill and excitement, even if you are seasick, you still go. Tuna
fishing is the best way to learn about the fishing industry.
People begin fishing with smaller boats, but each year get bigger
ones. They make it their goal to beat the best person of the previous
year. In Gloucester, excitement starts to swell when tuna season comes,
because they know the top champion always comes - Reverend Moon in the
New Hope. I feel it is good competition and young people will
want to challenge that goal and record. If I set a goal for them to
challenge, then the America fishing industry has some future.
Today, that industry has almost come to a halt because no one has
that spirit. American women are not particularly fond of fish smells or
the life of ocean-going men. It is an extraordinary woman who is
interested in the ocean and its fish. When the battle starts with the
tuna's strike, there is no time for courtesy or pleasantries. A team
has to be organized and busy, and a fisherman would even yell at his
own father at such a time. It is a rare woman who wouldn't mind being
kicked by her own husband in the heat of a tuna battle. What about
Unification Church women?
I am certainly not fishing for money. I already have the foundation
to move in any direction. My goal is to break the record and
demonstrate the sea-going spirit to the world. Year after year, I have
set the record and people know now it is not happening by chance or
coincidence, and that I have a special secret. People want to learn
that secret, so they are trying to be nice to me. The other fishermen
follow the New Hope with their binoculars, and when I get a
strike, everyone's eyes are on me. Anyone in Gloucester who is
interested in tuna fishing knows about the New Hope.
We want to establish something permanent in Gloucester, so we
recently obtained a big estate there, which used to belong to the
Catholic church. That house is being prepared to welcome people from
all over the world. If anyone is invited up there to participate in our
tuna fishing, they will not refuse. The mayor has been negative toward
us, but let him come and see what we are doing. I see this house as an
essential diplomatic base.
Gloucester is close to Boston, a major city in the world, and near
Provincetown, where the Pilgrims once landed. The spirit of this nation
was born in the New England area, so it is an important area. It is a
cultural center of America, and well-known as a seaport. Thus, it is a
strategic location to show the world my spirit.
Recently, we bought a marina that was up for auction and many people
bid against us, but the price kept rising and soon everyone stopped
bidding. Even the mayor was interested in that marina, and he was
anxious to keep us from getting it because it was such choice
water-front property. Many powerful corporations bid, but I never paid
attention to them, and eventually, we bought it.
Now we have that marina, plus a dock and an estate, so Gloucester is
being impacted by Moonies. Also the entire sport fishing industry is
influenced by us, especially by our first opening of the world tuna
tournament this year, offering the first prize of $100,000. Everyone
was completely shocked when the announcement was made, but they became
eager to see the Moonies come to their town. Gloucester citizens, the
police chief and Coast Guard are all excited. Everyone's eyes popped at
the thought of $100,000 and all of a sudden, they didn't mind the
Moonies so much anymore. They say it is the most exciting event in a
century in Gloucester. Boston, Gloucester and Provincetown are all
bases for the tournament, so it is a topic in those cities as well.
Everyone is talking about who will win the prizes, but I know who will
win. However, since I am sponsoring the tournament, it would not be
good for me to win first prize. I will, therefore, be the honorary
chairman and compete, but I will not take the prize even if I do the
best. Moonies can win, however.
The most important thing will not be who wins first prize, but which
boat does it. I am determined that our people work the hardest for all
three prizes. If they win, people will want to know which company made
their boats, and then they will discover that I designed the boats and
created the company that made them. I have planned down to the most
minute detail what kind of boat would be best for tuna fishing, and
yesterday I checked what our factory is doing, specifying what
details must be changed. The people of the world will know these boats
are my creation.
No one thinks I will build boats, but you will see that our boats
will be 21st century boats. Once our boat is proven the best for tuna
fishing in this contest, there will be a great market for them. I know
the advantages and disadvantages of different styles, and through
design, I compensated for all of those things. Mr. Henry Masters is our
brother from England, and I have guided him directly in completing the
plans. Our boats will win the prizes in the tuna tournament. You wait
and see. The fact that we bought some property in Gloucester was world
news, reported in the Wall Street Journal and the New York
Times. Time magazine devoted almost an entire page to it.
When the media finds out that Ocean Church boats win the world tuna
tournament, that will really be news. They will wonder when a
religious leader became such a fantastic boat designer.
Many thought it was just throwing money away to offer $100,000 for
the tournament, but there are specific reasons. That prize brought more
than $200,000 worth of publicity. The people who were anxious to get
rid of the Moonies have seen the excitement build in Gloucester, and
now they are embarrassed to be seen in public. The tournament will last
seven days, and whoever does the best during that time will win.
This tournament is not just an exciting event in America, but in
Japan as well. Japan is a great consumer of tuna, and the major
Japanese tuna companies are represented in Gloucester. They will send
their best people, and everyone will watch to see what happens. The
major seafood companies will see that Reverend Moon's boats and people
are winning, and they will know they can't help but deal with us in the
future. The big Japanese companies are backed by their government, but
we are backed by heaven. We will compete with them, and in the next few
years we will beat them.
There are four major fishing areas in the world -- one is in Norway,
but the other three surround the United States. One is the Bering Sea,
in Alaska; the other is the Gulf of Mexico, and the other is along the
East Coast, especially in the Gloucester area. A few years ago, the
American government set up a 200-mile limit for off-shore fishing by
foreign boats. Foreign governments are trying all kinds of strategies
to get inside that 200-mile limit to fish. There is a great deal of
diplomatic pressure to use these fishing grounds which are monopolized
by the American government.
However, we are not foreigners. The Japanese companies see that
Reverend Moon has a base in the United States, and furthermore, has so
many Japanese people working with him who are engaged to Americans,
They realize that we are their only link to America, We are becoming
the best bridge for Japan to trade in sea products with America, and
The American and Japanese governments are fierce competitors, but by
using our organization as a link, we can smooth out the bad feelings
and work for the benefit of both countries. I am interested in
marketing strategy. Mitsubishi and Marubeni have to use many middlemen,
and each level needs to get some profit. My strategy is to send the
product straight from the factory to the retailer, bypassing the
middlemen. Then the product can be provided much more cheaply to the
consumer. This is why I have created mobile seafood stores, which are
converted vans fitted with refrigeration. We are good at preparing
fish; the Japanese in particular know how to fix fish in many ways.
Once we prepare the fish, all the people have to do is enjoy it at
home. Many Americans don't know how to prepare fish, so we do it, and
all they have to do is eat it. The lines will be blocks long outside
our mobile stores. One van will be responsible for twelve home church
areas, roving around, serving 4,380 homes. The vans will have special
theme music and special signs so that people will get to know you when
you come to their homes.
We will also cater and start seafood restaurant chains which will
provide fresh, cooked fish for banquets. If you have the reputation
that in a few hours you can provide good food for one or two hundred
people, you will get an incredible amount of business. More and more
the American diet will include seafood, because people are realizing
that eating large amounts of red meat isn't healthy. Seafood provides
much more healthy forms of protein.
My plan for marketing in Japan calls for 7,000 seafood vans to cover
the whole country. Once they are in operation, they will make twice
as much as the MFT fund raisers. When B and C members see how
successful our A members are in the fish business, they will want to do
it too, instead of their own jobs. Once we demonstrate reliable income,
we can buy vans on credit, and when bankers see what the Moonies are
doing, they will want our business. Whoever does well in this business
will rise to ever higher levels in Japanese-American trade.
We have ordered 100 vans and thirty have arrived. Right now, three
members are working in one van, but in six months they will branch out,
with one person per van. I want to see it expand, from one van to
three, then three to nine, and nine to twenty-seven, so that in three
years, Japan will have 7,000 vans. If we have 800 by the end of one
year, there can be far more than 7,000 by the end of three years. We
will use exactly the same system in America.
Home church will be developing side by side with the marketing plan,
so we will offer service to the people as well as income, and in this
way, the home church providence will prosper. All the experts trained
in this system in Japan will come to America and install their system
here. At the same time, through a fellowship organization, we can make
friends with wealthy people who are interested in tuna fishing. Through
the tuna tournament we can organize them into a club and then expand it
throughout the world. Tuna travel the world, so when the season ends in
Gloucester it begins somewhere else. If we sponsor tournaments in five
places around the world, that is $500,000 in prizes. That investment
will lure tens of thousands of influential people. Their boats are
capable of crossing the Atlantic or Pacific, going from one tournament
to another. Once this plan has momentum, the government will have to be
supportive, and they will organize all the necessary supplies. Also,
since there are already many marine facilities around the world, we
will create a system so that the major vessels can provide fuel to the
sport fishermen. As the club's influence grows, these things can be
arranged. People will certainly see that Reverend Moon is the king of
the ocean, not only in generating healthy sea sport, but in generating
trade and commerce as well as good food to benefit the people of the
world. Eventually we will have our own capacity to supply our boats.
The tournament fleet will be moving from one ocean to another, with an
oil tanker accompanying it. The major corporations of the world will
want to participate because the worldwide publicity will be so great.
Imagine tens of thousands of boats coming to Gloucester for the
competition; they will bring tremendous prosperity to that small sea
town. All those people will have to eat and sleep somewhere and get
supplies, so the economic impact will be tremendous.
There are many resources that can be transported from one part of
the world that is rich to another part where there is famine. This is
why I created the International Relief Friendship Foundation.
American companies sometimes have a surplus of products which become
burdensome because they must be stored and, at the same time, the
companies must pay taxes on them. Many times they cannot sell these old
products for whatever reason, so they are in a dilemma. Often they are
willing to give that material to some organization as a contribution,
but even the churches today don't know what to do with so much material
because they don't have the capacity to handle it. However, we have
created a foundation which can receive surplus commodities, plus a
fleet to transport them from one port to another, so we can meet that
This has tremendous implications. Any government that is interested
in the welfare of its people will link up with us because we have so
much ability to help them. To implement this, we need properly trained
and skilled manpower. Where can we train people? I want to have 200 of
our boats deployed along the American coast with three people on each
boat, which means 600 people. Once we have continued for three years,
three people won't be necessary; one person can do it. This kind of
system can be expanded very quickly.
The young people who become experienced in small boats will want to
handle bigger and bigger boats. In about sixteen years, everyone can be
a trained, experienced captain of a big boat. We can get government
loans and create more fishing boats, assigning an experienced captain
to each one. Then, their mission will be to catch specific fish that
are in demand.
Cold storage is the big problem in the fishing industry. Therefore,
I am investigating advanced techniques of making dry fish powder that
doesn't need cold storage. Millions of tons can be stored in bags in
open air. We will develop powder for different fish and combine them,
like multiple vitamins. This powder can be used in daily cooking, to
supplement the overuse of flour and starch. You will be able to create
new cuisine by using fish powder in nutritious cooking.
I will soon test fish powder bread versus wheat flour bread. Once
people taste it, they won't have to be persuaded which is better. The
best test will be giving it to children, who are very honest. I am sure
they will all take the fish bread. There is already a fish powder
company operating in Norway, and one of our members is researching that
process in depth. The problem now is not in catching the fish, but in
marketing the fish before they spoil. We are working on the solution to
Because we have a way to store the fish, we will catch as much as
possible without hesitation. Already, we catch more tuna than anyone
else. The fishermen will bring their catches to us because we will have
no limit on how much we can buy. Therefore, we can provide a tremendous
incentive for the fishing industry. I have the entire system worked
out, starting with boat building. After we build the boats, we catch
the fish and process them for market, and then have a distribution
network. This is not just on the drawing board; I have already done
All these ideas I conceived many years ago, and I knew just where to
start -- with tuna fishing -- because it is the essential way to train
people in the fishing spirit. I have been doing that for seven years.
Furthermore, another reason I have pursued this direction is that
resources on land for feeding the world will soon be inadequate. There
is a limited amount of land, and it gets poorer over the years, but the
ocean is boundless. You cannot eat all the plants that grow on land,
but everything that comes from the ocean can be eaten, and it is all
good for the body.
Animal feed can be produced from the ocean; when seaweed is properly
processed, there is tremendous nutrition there. In addition, we will
not just harvest fish that grow wild, but will farm fish as well.
Normally a calf cost one-fifth the price of a full grown cow. The tuna,
however, has a tremendous capacity to multiply; one tuna lays 150,000
eggs. Would you have to pay one-fifth the price of a tuna for one
little egg? Tuna farming is already in the experimental stage. Most
baby tuna are eaten by other fish, but when they are protected they
will grow quickly. There is great potential in tuna farming.
I am the founder of this gigantic spiritual movement, but I am also
laying the foundation to solve future physical problems of the world. I
know that all this is basic for future food production and solving
hunger in the world. Some environmentalist might ask me, "Reverend
Moon, why do you kill tuna all the time?" My answer is, "How can you
worry about tuna when all the people may die? I want to prevent such a
future from happening." In another way, I view a tuna as an offering,
and I am in a position as a chief priest to offer it to God. I seldom
eat the tuna I have caught because I see it as a sacrifice for the sake
of mankind. In the Old Testament, the priests killed and burnt
offerings on the altar, and blood was shed.
Another health food trend in the near future will be to eat raw
foods like fish, grains and vegetables. It is medically true that raw
foods give you more energy. Fish powder will solve many things because
it will contain most of the nutrition you need. With a bag of fish
powder you can travel anywhere in the world and eat wherever you are.
The land has been fully exploited by man, but God preserved the ocean
resources almost totally untouched. (There are even precious stones in
This year, we have saved and numbered the tail fins of the tuna I
have caught, and when they are preserved, each state center will have
one. When people look at those fins, they can feel they are looking at
the future food messiah who will solve the food problems of the world.
Since I am so enthusiastic and have so many plans about the ocean,
anyone who comes to the Unification Church cannot help but pay
attention to the ocean. Would you like to go to sea? [Yes!] When did
you become so enthusiastic about the ocean?
For seven years I have been going to the ocean and praying out
there, early in the morning and late at night. As Unification Church
members you cannot help but pay attention to the ocean. Did you think
about the ocean before you joined the Unification Church? When you
think of the ocean you think about the movie, Jaws, don't you?
Now, instead of thinking a shark will use you as his food, you can
think you will use the shark to feed the world. Not only men, but women
will do it also. That is a long-standing goal of mine.
If there are any people who don't want to do this, raise your hands.
From next year on, we will have ocean workshops lasting six months, and
once you pass, you will go on a tuna tour around the world. You will
even sail to Korea. We have radios, so I can command our worldwide
fleet from one flagship, directing each ship around the world.
In the future when the Communist threat is ended, there will be no
more war. Instead of being scrapped, all the government naval vessels
can be utilized by us as mother ships for peaceful purposes. They can
supply the fleets that are harvesting the resources of the ocean. An
aircraft carrier is like a floating island and can travel thousands of
miles with no problem. I will get one aircraft carrier for each ocean,
or two for the big oceans. Then we can get airplanes, and they can use
the carriers as airports. Would you want to join that fleet and become
Usually Americans don't like the smell of fish, and when you talk
about fish, you shake your heads. Now, you will be different. I am not
just thinking about all these things, but have already started them.
You sisters, show me your muscles! Oh, not very much. I have the
ambition to train many women captains. You will still have your
charming woman's smile, but will act strongly like a man. That will be
very poetic. Our sisters will create literary masterpieces based on
their experiences at sea. That is my thinking.
If your husband had this kind of dream, would you be a happy woman?
To reach that goal, you will have to go through a great deal of misery
because it is a tough process. You have to taste bitterness in order to
appreciate sweetness. I would like to mobilize the spirited young men
and women of the world and bring them to the horizon of this goal. I
knew that governments and religions would persecute us, but I always
had an alternate plan for building the kingdom of heaven on earth. I
always thought that if people don't like me, I would build the kingdom
on the ocean first and then bring it to land.
In the last ten days, I have become deeply tanned and my goal is to
become darker than any black man in America. Then I want to see what
white women will say. I am watching how Mother will react to having a
black husband. I know that Mother will say, "Father, you are so
handsome in your dark skin; I love you even more." She will have a
black husband in the summer and a white husband in the winter.
My topic was supposed to have been the "Way of Abel," but instead it
became the "Way of Tuna." Well then, when the way of tuna is followed
properly, you will surely end up in Abel's role. I started with only
my bare hands when I arrived in America, but in a few years I have
truly created an empire. Do you know what is happening in Alaska? The
most advanced seafood processing factory is being built there; even the
state government is amazed. Now, people are asking my guidance for the
Alaskan seafood industry because our factory is so exemplary. We have a
shipyard in Alabama which can build boats up to 300 feet long, which is
a gigantic boat. One of those would cost several million dollars.
Wouldn't you like to go out as captain on one of those boats?
When transported to Japan, the tuna price is usually twenty times
that in America. In order to do that, it must be fresh. For that
reason, I researched how to transport tuna, and now that we can do
that, we can utilize the same method for other fish as well. I have
opened the door.
Anyone who has at least three spiritual children can come to Boston,
though I think that maybe one-third of you will lose your enthusiasm
after your first experiences on the ocean. You will spend more time in
the bathroom, not sitting on the toilet, but leaning over it. Will you
mind? It will be the world's most exciting drama and comedy. The
interesting thing is that at sea you may be in the bathroom all the
time, but as soon as you are back on solid ground, you feel fine and
are truly hungry. In some cases, a person is so engrossed in throwing
up out of his mouth that he doesn't notice that his bowel movement has
come out the other end! The Unification Church is really something
else. You are proud of it though, aren't you? Wouldn't you like to have
dark skin like mine?
On the ocean you won't have good food like you do on land. You just
have raw fish, but it will certainly be very fresh; just dip it in soy
sauce and eat it. Now you know why I have been spending all my summers
on the ocean these last seven years, and why tuna are so important.
Now you know it is directly linked to the dispensation, so it can be a
topic in your prayer.
It so happens that tuna season in Gloucester comes in the middle of
vacation season, which means people from all over the world can come.
The estate I bought is now tuna tournament headquarters. Would you want
it to be an impressive place? There are thirty bedrooms there and this
house will be used year round, not just in the summer. Famous
professors will come for seminars there.
Our whole budget for the summer has been spent already, so I told
our people that if they want to eat they can either have sand or go get
tuna. Now the staff is fishing very hard to get tuna so they can go on.
Tuna fishing is certainly not a vacation for me; it is a war and a
battle, I sleep two or three hours at the most at night. The young
people are always dozing off; my driver always sleeps in the car, but I
never sleep on the boat. When God sees me, He cannot help but say I am
something special because no one can keep up with me. Christian
ministers are very interested in their honor and future, but I am crazy
about the salvation of the world, how I can feed the world population,
how I can help this nation. That is what I am thinking about day in and
day out. In the summer your face should be tan and dark with the
appearance of rugged men and women who are committed to the mission.
Would you like this tough mission? Your "thank you" doesn't sound very
strong! However, it is a beautiful day today, the best day for tuna
fishing. Tuna is the Abel of the sea, so this wasn't too far from my
original topic. From tuna, you have learned many things about my vision
of the future and what fishing is all about. God bless you.
