We have arrived! Thank you to everyone who has been praying for us as we travel. You’re prayers have mattered greatly because we did experience a couple of problems along the way but all-in-all everyone is safe! After arriving in LAX, we had a couple of problems with our flights out, but we knew God was in control and surrendered it to Him. After a long day of traveling, the team arrived in Egypt safely and after catching some shut eye meet with our partners the next day.
In the morning the team had a great breakfast looking out at the Nile River while enjoying a delicious buffet. Once breakfast was finished, they traveled to see their church partners and have a tour of the church. A majority of the day consisted of meeting with the different ministries of our church partners, and also involved talking about ministry with a couple of the ministry. It was such an amazing experience to be able to talk about ministry with our partners and to be able take steps forward in furthering God’s Kingdom by uniting and coming together to tackle different issues both churches were facing and support each other by exchanging strategies.
There were some defining moments for the team as they talked and shared about what was on their hearts and different issues they were currently facing. Bridges were being built for the first time between two different cultures, and a support system was being put into place. We can’t wait to see what God is going to do in the different ministries, and what God has in store for our partners as they take steps of faith and try new and exciting things!
Please keep the team in your prayers as these next couple days we head into ministry, and be the hands and feet of Jesus to the Egyptian people!
