Reward of Sacrifice A Glimpse of Azerbaijan

G-d is great! After  three years of time off our Company 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 nr 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 a Divine Providence, I know.

I could only be thankful for the love He always gives. He is great!

(Romans 8:28)

 “All things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose
