April 14, 2008

[Diocese of Antsiranana - Indian Ocean] The French helicopter carrier LA JEANNE D'ARC was in the Indian Ocean in the port of Diego Suarez, Madagascar during the first week of April 2008. The Bishop Roger Chung Jaomalaza together with his wife Alice and a group of young people of the Eklesia Episkopaly Malagasy , visited this war ship which will soon come to the last leg of its service in the French Naval Force in two years . The impressive ship also has a radioactive shield in its make up and a crew of 600 . The following day , the Jeanne D'Arc left the port of Antsiranana and went directly to Puntland in the Somalia region where pirates had subjected the French Ponant Ship and its crew as hostage and demanded a 2 million dollars ransom . When the ransom was paid by the French owner , the pirates were pursued by the military Helicopters of the Jeanne D' Arc and part of the ransom money was recovered by the French soldiers with a few captured Somalian pirates.

"If someone claims, "I know God," but doesn't obey God's commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth. But those who obey God's word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did" (1 John 2:3-6).
