“There are Signs Everywhere”

signs of new directions

Brilliant 1st sermon of the year from Protestant Church in Oman (PCO) Pastor Barry Dawson on Friday, January 4th about seeking new direction in 2013. (from Matthew 2:1-12)

Comfort at the Grave: The PCO Remembers Michelle and Julia Hoffman

The PCO (Protestant Church in Oman), TAISM (The American International School in Muscat) and a beautiful family are all experiencing a season of deep grief as we try to make sense out of a senseless tragedy that occurred in Minnesota on August 17th, less than 2 weeks ago.  Michelle and Julia Hoffman (as well as the mother-in-law) were taken from us to be with the LORD.  Here is a news report about the horrific accident.  Michelle and Julia’s obituary is found here.  The son, Jason, was only spared by the grace of God thanks to the quick reaction of a good samaritan.  Memorial services were held in the States last week.  It was such a beautiful service celebrating these two hearts of gold and many of us were only able to witness it from this youtube clip shared on facebook.

The worship from 14:15 to 19:15 is so incredibly deep and uplifting and is proof of Psalm 22:3 that “But Thou art Holy, O Thou that inhabits the praises of His people.”  Music soothes the soul like nothing else.  This is why Ephesians 5:19 tells us to, “Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord.”

 TAISM had a special, private ceremony this past Saturday and wrote this page, TAISM Community Mourns Loss, on their website.  For those who knew and loved Michelle and Julia, there will be a Memorial Service on Sunday, September 2nd at 4pm in the Bosch Hall, Ghala.  Please be praying for the family-Michael, Jake, Joey, and Jason.  Today’s sermon from Pastor Michael Peppin could not have been more appropriate.

Running the Race of Your Life

Heard an interesting sermon this morning at the PCO (Protestant Church in Oman) titled “Running the Race of Your Life” by Pastor Barry Dawson comparing Olympic training with Christian living.  A timely message seeing how we’re halfway through the London Olympics 2012!
