Well it's about time that we were able to share this new post with you all! I say that because this tilapia project has been a year in the making. The first pics showing us cleaning out/painting the tank and placing the baby tilapias in the tank were taken back in April/May of 2012 and the pics showing us removing and eating the fish were taken just a few days ago on May 12, 2013.
I love this little word of wisdom from Bill Kirby, the founder of The Tilapia Project:
"Yes, it is about growing food for people in need, but it has to be about more than that. God is the reason we want to feed people. Give him the credit and the glory. 'If we only feed hungry people, they will still die someday without knowing that it was God who fed them.' (Todd Hinkey) Let them know that this project came from God for them."
Because pictures a worth a thousand words, I think that I will just start posting pics as I am sure that you will be able to follow the story line just fine.
