So Two Maritimers Walk into a Maktab...

which means "school." Muslims have no need for bars. My dear friends Sean and Ruth Carroll from New Brunswick have moved to the Middle East where Sean has taken a position as an English language professor at a university in Al Mukalla, Yemen. It will be a challenge to live half way across the world in a strange land, where Sean doesn't even like olives (!), and they do not speak Arabic. Not to mention the oppressive heat, even though they're on the ocean. It should be an exciting experience for them.

Please keep them in your prayers as they serve the Yemeni people in 'various' ways. Please be discerning in your comments for reasons of security. I forget the name of the university but will post a link to it once I get it. The Carrolls do have a blog,
Yemeni Cricket, where they always let their conscience be their guide.
