Safe Arrival in Cairo, Egypt

We arrived safely in Cairo, Egypt today where we were greeted by Mark and Rosie (on the right of Mary) and later by Sherif and Marian (on the left)—all dear friends to us. Both of the men are graduates from PRTS whom God is blessing and using for His glory. After a few hours of catch-up sleep from the red-eye flight from Kenya, the six of us went down the Nile in a boat—one of the most historic and longest rivers in the world. It is the first time in our lives that we were on it. When on the Nile, one cannot but think of how this river was once turned into blood, or about Moses being drawn from this river as a baby! The banks of the Nile in Cairo contain a surprising number of significant buildings packed full with history—side-by-side with a McDonald’s. In America, something that is 100 years old is considered old; in Europe, 300-500 years is considered old; in Egypt, old means 1000 years or more!

Heading to Egypt

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with these lovely folks: L to R, Shawn Paulk (Schel’s son), myself and Mary, Margaret and Isaac Kuria (hosting pastor and his wife), Schel Paulk (from Georgia, loves Kenya, involved in the conference for many years), Conrad Mbewe (from Zambia, spoke 6 powerful messages on 1 Cor. 1:17-25 – Preaching Faithfully the Word of God).

Right after this, we were driven 3.5 hours back to Nairobi, slept a few hours, then took a 4:20 a.m. flight to Cairo, Egypt. Please pray for God’s blessing to follow the conference and for strength for the coming itinerary in Egypt.
