Greetings Readers and Sailors! This is David Telbat today to honor a community of sailors. If you’ve not read my book Sea Scribe yet (re-titled Fury in the Storm), I invite you along on a voyage across the stormy Pacific Ocean into the dangerous waters off the North Korean coast. Pirates ranging farther into the Pacific? Yes! North American smugglers with motor cruisers? Yes! Bodyguards, assassins, and Russian thugs? Again, yes! And more!
Fury in the Storm is loosely based on the real-life men and women who call the sea their home. Following the world’s most devastating natural disasters, an element of the rebuilding and humanitarian effort is often overlooked—or quickly forgotten. The reality is that in the aftermath of earthquakes and tsunamis, the community of sailors around the world rally to assist survivors and transport goods, an endeavor which is often dwarfed by larger organizations. But these sailors, with their holds and cabins burdened with thousands of pounds of clothing and food, attend to villagers and fishermen up and down the coastlines in the centers of devastation.
Christian sailors carry on a special tradition that began in the New Testament. The Apostle Paul, and many others in the first century, sailed the known world through many an adventure to spread the gospel message, and transport goods to Christian communities far and wide.
Are you a Christian sailor? Have you participated in such humanitarian mission efforts? Fury in the Storm may reflect the spirit of a courageous sailor for Christ, but if you’re one of the many who have used a sailing vessel to deliver goods afar, contact me! I want to hear your story!
See you on the high seas!
