'I will have my boat stolen and I will be killed too'

UPDATE Sept 23rd - 

In a hurry die

British teacher murdered by Amazon pirates refused offer of help from locals to accompany her as she canoed dangerous stretch of river

British canoeist Emma Kelty rejected an offer of safe passage through dangerous pirate infested waters prior to her murder over fears she was losing too much time in her bid to complete her quest.


Emma was warned of what awaited her further down the Amazon river and didn't take it seriously enough to stop.
Others tried to warn her just before, but communication and language difficulties kept her pressing on with her adventure.

This is the tragic state of so many here on rebel planet earth as we are busily driven in our life pursuit.

We are either driven closer to God or further away, and so often our short time here is made even shorter by the decisions we make.

I hope this sad and tragic end of a fellow adventurer will cause some out there to take the signs and warning we are given in our very short lives more seriously.

I encourage everyone out there to invite Jesus into your decision making and follow Him.

Emma Kelty, 43

'Dont put off tomorrow what you can do today'......

Emma Kelty

Having seen the light where in years before , I hankered after what I thought was the better life of parties, new car and clothes in a very disposable way, today, having my home on my back (or now in a kayak) seeing and experiencing the world outside of the town and city life, I couldn't be happier. Long gone are the days of working day and night, weekends and holidays and I am defiantly a better person (personally) for it - I recognise that for many years I gave myself to others too much that somehow I lost myself in it. For some it would be a sign of selfishness but a work life balance that many speak about is true. 
Ultimately I know, that this could be the last of my big adventures for a while but I have no regrets at all and will make every effort to continue this life that I am currently leading that I hope (and have been told) has made impact on other peoples lives too. 

The world is huge and so much more to explore, I wish that others would join me on this way of life.

British kayaker Emma Kelty 'murdered' on Amazon trip

Posting on social media on 10 September, Emma Kelty joked about a warning she had been given about the stretch of the Amazon river she was about to enter. “So in or near Coari (60 miles) I will have my boat stolen and I will be killed too,” she wrote. “Nice.”

Emma Kelty had decided to paddle the Amazon river from its source in the Peruvian Andes to the Atlantic Ocean

Kelty, 43, was canoeing kayaking alone from the Peru source of the Amazon to the Atlantic.


"The San Juan that we knew yesterday is no longer there,"

"We're looking at four to six months without electricity" in Puerto Rico, home to nearly 3.5 million people.

What a pitiful story about the lady adventurer.

" There is a way that seems right unto man, but the end of that way is death".

There are many such things to grab our attention and affections. satan will make sure of it. Most anything will work, anything to get human beings to squander their few short years away on useless and foolish ventures.

I spoke to a street man yesterday, and told him that this life is an illusion. When we close our eyes in death then reality begins. He did listen intently, for which I was thankful.

Tomorrow is not promised, and I remember that JESUS said of Mary, sister of Martha, that she had chosen that GOOD PART that would not be taken from her. May we all choose so well.
Bless you this morning brother. Samson7able <(((><

Thanks samson7, great Bible verse, the pure truth so few seek.

This tragic soul was more interested in PARTY, and like so many Christians, it caused her to be careless of the dangers up ahead.

Finally the wonderful folks of the river really know how to party.... and I mean .... all night /weekend rave style!!

So true about so much of htis life being a lie, and illusion, looks at how many are brainwashed by climate change and do not see the Creator in all of this.
How terminally blind so many are because they do not seek or love the truth above all else.
Thanks for your comment brother.

Little children, KEEP YOURSELVES FROM IDOLS because the blind you.
