To all my Fishermen Friends…..

Yes Klo Say, Nyein, Eh Htoo, and Hla Win Kyi, these fish are almost 3 feet long and were just 8 feet from me in the water.  They are salmon in the upper Willamette River near Eugene OR. In the picture below you will see one of the fish trying to leap to another level as they have been climbing a fish ladder.  These fish were hatched in this area, went out to the ocean for several years and now have come back to spawn another generation and then die.  An additional blessing of our vacation, besides seeing family, has been the cool weather here in Oregon, we have worn sweaters in the morning.

About johnmcmurphy

Jesus is first and foremost in my life. He is above all religions, principalities and powers. In everything He must increase and I must decrease. Into the hands of Jesus, God has placed life and death, truth and purity. strength and meaning. Only in a growing understanding of the triune God, and his son Jesus can I do, breathe, exist and serve. I have a Bachelor's degree in Bible from Vennard College, a Master's in Social Science from Azusa Pacific University and a Ph. D. from Ohio State in Family Relations and Human Development. I am an ordained pastor involved in cross-cultural ministry. I am currently employed at several colleges as an instructor. If you need to get in touch with me, just leave a comment, I screen all comments and so you can leave further contact information which I will erase before it is published. -John
