something spiritual... One of our recent converts (her name is Mary Claire) has been

When fishing, how do you catch such big fish with just a coconut and fishing line?
Why don't they just swim away with the coconut?We hold the line in our hands when we fish and

How do you cook the fish you catch? We cook it on our gas stove with oil
How did you cook the octopus? Or did you eat it raw?We didn't cook the octopus. Members did

You said that milk fish is among your favorites? Do you cook it or eat it raw?both
