From Wikipedia: The Bahrain Petroleum Company, a subsidiary of the Standard Oil Company of California, discovered oil in 1931 and production began the following year. This was to bring rapid modernisation to Bahrain. Since the late 20th century, Bahrain has sought to diversify its economy and become less dependent on oil by investing in the banking and tourism sectors.
According to a January 2006 report by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia, Bahrain has the fastest growing economy in the Arab world.
Whoever is kind to the needy honors God.
Father, the Bahrainis have so many poor neighbors. May they honor You by kindness to the needy. Amen.
