Three Yachtsmen Killed by Somali Pirates were Hams

H/T:  ARRL


Just realized that the nightly horror story heard on the TV had a very tenuous personal side to it.  Three of the four Americans murdered by Somali pirates were amateur radio operators.  I wasn't too surprised when I learned they were being described as missionaries passing out Bibles.

Why were they murdered?  No one is saying, if anyone does know.  Perhaps the pirates belatedly realized the four were Christians.  It seems that that is enough reason for one's death in many parts of the world.  Perhaps because they were "rich" and inconveniently "in the way" of the pirates liberating their riches.  That's pretty common all over the world.

That they sailed into harm's way is obvious.  God does take care of His people.  He just doesn't always do it the way we think he should.

God Bless Ya'll !
