“Maid in Oman”

When I think about how God brought me here to Oman to meet the love of my life, (through very uncomfortable circumstances which I didn’t understand at the time…) who has been working as a maid here in Oman during the past 7 years for a family at PDO (Petroleum Development Oman), it reminds me of the romantic movie, “Maid in Manhattan“. Far more impressive than some entertaining storyline, God, in His sovereignty, looks out for the well-being of his servants and makes our joy complete in His perfect timing.

“Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair, and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.” (1 Peter 3:3-4)

“Peace on Earth” – The Book!








With so many critical, monumental, global-scale problems: war, terrorism, poverty, disease, financial crises… there must be answers out there somewhere. There is currently a new novel recently compiled and published named “Peace on Earth“.
This story just may contain the answers.
