Ukrainian Plane Crash...

There is something I feel I need to let you need to know about, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It's something that happened in Iran.

You may already know about it.

Even though it happened more than a week ago, I decided too share it with you.

What happened?

A Ukranian airliner crashed.

Here is a link for the article by msn.com that is entitled, Ukranian airliner crashes in Iran, killing all 176 aboardhttps://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/ukrainian-airliner-crashes-in-iran-killing-all-176-aboard/ar-BBYIWuX?ocid=spartandhp.

Hopefully, you clicked on the link and read the article.  Even so, I'll share some of what was stated (I copied/pasted):

A Ukrainian airliner carrying 176 people crashed on the outskirts of Tehran during a takeoff attempt Wednesday hours after Iran launched its missile attack on U.S. forces, scattering flaming debris and passengers' belongings across farmland and killing everyone on board.

The Iranian military disputed any suggestion the plane had been blown out of the sky by a missile, and Iranian aviation authorities said they suspected a mechanical problem brought down the 3 1/2-year-old Boeing 737. Ukrainian officials initially agreed but later backed away and declined to offer a cause while the investigation is going on.
The Ukraine International Airlines jet was en route to the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv with 167 passengers and nine crew members from several countries, including 82 Iranians, at least 63 Canadians and 11 Ukrainians, according to officials.
Many of the passengers were believed to be international students attending universities in Canada; they were making their way back to Toronto by way of Kyiv after visiting with family during the winter break. The manifest included several teenagers and children, some as young as 1 or 2.
Major world airlines Wednesday rerouted flights crossing the Middle East to avoid danger amid escalating tensions between the U.S. and Iran, and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration barred American flights from certain Persian Gulf airspace, warning of the “potential for miscalculation or misidentification" of civilian aircraft.
The plane had been delayed from taking off from Tehran's Imam Khomeini International Airport by almost an hour. It never made it above 8,000 feet, crashing just minutes after takeoff, according to data from the flight-tracking website FlightRadar24.
Qassem Biniaz, a spokesman for Iran's Road and Transportation Ministry, said it appeared a fire erupted in one of its engines and the pilot lost control of the plane, according to the state-run IRNA news agency. The news report did not explain how Iranian authorities knew that.
The pilot apparently couldn't communicate with air-traffic controllers in Tehran in the last moments of the flight, said Hassan Razaeifar, the head of the air crash investigation committee. He did not elaborate.
Ukraine International Airlines President Yevhen Dykhne, said the aircraft “was one of the best planes we had, with an amazing, reliable crew." In a statement, the airline went further, saying: "Given the crew’s experience, error probability is minimal. We do not even consider such a chance.”

Sigh...

I must admit that I truly feel sick in my heart about that airplane crashed and murdered 176 people, including 63 Canadians... as stated in this article.

To me, there is no way of knowing if those people who died will be in Heaven.

As I've mentioned in the past, anyone can gain salvation and everlasting life, by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ... the Son of God.

Thinking about that, made me think of John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.".

Amen!  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Please understand, that if anyone who died in that plane crash belonged to Him, they will have everlasting life, and will spend eternity with Him.

Even so, please know that I have prayed and will continue praying for the family and friends who died.

Hopefully, you will pray also.

If you do pray, may God bless you.


Until next time...
