One of my Favorite Photos so far

When I asked these fishermen from Qantab for a photo, they indicated yes with a nod of the head. I was SO happy that they didn’t pose with a cheezy smile but continued talking together naturally which resulted in this authentic fishing village scene photo.

Psalm 113:3

From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD’s name is to be praised.”

Driving through the Interior of Oman

What do Omanis do with old “dishdashas”? Well, the farmers here have found a good use for them -scarecrows!!!

Look ma! I’m on top of the world!

Whenever I drive in Oman, I am AMAZED by the awesome scenery. I hope that I never grow tired of the view or forget how BLESSED I am to be in such an interesting part of the world during such an interesting time in history.

You HAVE been warned!!!

Many of us had a good chuckle when we saw this sign near the main gate of Ibri College. We are not sure if it is a warning against high voltage OR a warning against a generally lazy and complaining group of students, ha!ha!
