This year we welcomed 43 Egyptian pastors and were specially blessed to have a great teaching team from the US: Dr. Randy Brannon, Grace Community in Madera, CA; Pastor Paul Gleason, Montelores Baptist in Lewis, CO; and Pastor Steve Hair, Maranatha Bible, Show Low, AZ as guest lecturers. Pastor Megdi Salib from Egypt and Dr. John Cook, IM CEO, also taught. Reda translated and we very much appreciated all of his efforts.
Pastors sang, laughed, cried, prayed and poured over the Scriptures together. There were times of worship, joy, repentance, and burdens were lifted from weary shoulders. The fellowship was sweet and precious. Messages and lessons were deep, encouraging and inspiring. Now with everyone gone home, the Nile’s swift currents remind us that we have today and we can invest it only once.
Thank you for praying for and investing with us into the lives of these incredibly faithful and courageous men of God here in Egypt. We give God the glory for His faithfulness and this special week!
