THE SHIP (VIETNAM STORY)
When we lived in Cabramatta in the 80s, it was a centre for the newly arrived Chinese Vietnamese who had fled the conflict in their homeland. We soon made friends with a lot of them, and one friend told me this, her story. My friend was already a Christian when she left Vietnam by boat, but her faith was still a baby one. She boarded a boat with over 300 others, so many that those below deck couldn't even stretch out. They had to take it in turns. It was a horrific time, and then got even worse. The small ship broke down in he middle of the ocean. As the hours ticked by, she prayed to God, "Please let me see a ship."

But something like that happened once, a long time ago. Down by a waterhole in a place far away called Judea...

"Greetings, Molly," he grinned saucily. " Ahem. I be a pirate, you know." Lucy stirred her Margarita. "The name's not Molly and yes. I guessed." "My name's Pirate Bill. What's yours then, if it be-nt Molly?" he winked at her. "Lucy, and I'm a reporter. You're just the person I've been waiting to interview, Pirate Bill. Let me get my recorder out." "Recorder?" he asked. "Well, that be a good thing. I like this modern tecknologee." "Glad to hear it," nodded Lucy. "Now, let's start. So, you're a pirate, Pirate Bill. Tell me, though, aren't all pirates bad? Don’t they attack ships and steal things?" Bill cleared his throat. “Well, yes. But I’m a GOOD pirate." Lucy leant forward." A good pirate? What does that mean?...
