Father God is indeed great! After three years of time off , the Company I have worked with ,recalled my services to work with them again. T’was a glorious moment in April 1997 !
Saipem [Oil Pipeline Company] had offered me a job assignment in Azerbaijan a country known to be where the Ark of Noah landed , (supposedly in the Mt Ararat in the Armenian border). It was a state in the former Soviet Union and was the world’s number 1 Oil producing field at the turn of the 20th century. Oil derricks were sprouting everywhere! Perhaps John Rockefeller had gotten his wealth from there.
It was also a source of the best Persian carpets in the world. Yes, indeed it was a blessing to have been in that perfect peaceful place.
Oh how wonderful to have traveled again! I enjoyed the plane ride, saw new places and met new people. It was very interesting but most of all, truly rewarding.
3 years back, in 1994, I resigned from the same Company I had been with since 1987 in order to do some community service in my town , “pro bono”, “gratis”. It was a selfless experience which, interestingly, had brought some sense of fulfillment and heavenly peace. I was happy!
The trip to Azerbaijan was of a Divine Providence, I know.
I could only be thankful for the love He always gives. He is great!
