The timing was perfect in holding the Egyptian Pastors’ Conference in Alexandria last month. After the end of the Morsi regime four years ago, we ventured to come, yet there were many roadblocks that prevented us. This year the Lord allowed us to take the step forward last month to minister in Egypt in several areas, center focus of which was to the hearts of 30 Egyptian pastors through our conference with the theme taken from Psalm 23, “He Restores My Soul.”
The statements coming from the pastors since our conference are clearly an encouragement. Words such as “The conference was effective…my fear is gone…encouraging…truly a blessing…healing…these meetings helped me refocus my confidence upon the Lord.” We as a team had the privilege of bringing a word of encouragement to them as each taught. The teaching time was conducted by Rev. Tim Dane, Pastor, Colorado Springs; Dr. Dan Iles, IM staff, California; Rev. Magdi Benjamin, Egypt, and myself.
The topics covered were “the Chief Shepherd, dealing with despair, encouraging promises to the people of God, the voice of the cave verses the voice of Christ, and the man who God will make stand.”
I want to say a special thank you to those who prayed and gave over and above to help make this conference such a success. It is from this conference we are moving ahead into stronger position of ministry in church planting, discipleship and child sponsorships. Please continue to pray with us as we endeavor to be effective in reaching people for Christ in this great land.
