The Adams, who are members of the Marina del Rey Yacht Club in Marina del Rey, Calif., run a Bible ministry, according to their website, and have been distributing Bibles to schools and churches in remote villages in areas, including the Fiji Islands, Alaska, New Zealand, Central America and French Polynesia.
The pirates from Puntland in northern Somalia are not hard-line Islamists, and the fact the Adams carry Bibles is not likely to be a problem. Pirates in Puntland are known to spend their ransom spoils on alcohol, drugs and prostitutes.
Jason Straziuso reported from Nairobi, Kenya.
