Dear Friends & Family
I have been presented with an opportunity to participate in a mission trip with World Missions Alliance to Egypt, November 8-18, 2022. World Missions Alliance will hold an evangelistic outreach in Cairo, Egypt.
I believe God has called me to be a part of this mission and this is an opportunity for me to fulfill His commission to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15.
We will be going to Egypt on a mission of true Christian Diplomacy. Our ministry partners in Cairo have endured great hardship during the years of Egypt revolution. They witnessed churches being bombed, Christians being killed by Muslim Brotherhood. They persevered with true courage to witness their country now being reborn into a progressive and safe nation.
The hardships brought tolerance among the Egyptians of different faiths and created a safe place for people to worship according to their faith.
The incredible move of God that World Missions Alliance has witnessed in the churches of Egypt on prior missions endeavors, revealed the tremendous opportunity that we have in this Islamic nation. We are eager to walk through the door of opportunity that God has extended to World Missions Alliance to share his Word and hope to the people of Egypt. We will be partnering with the local Egyptian Churches in the capital city of Cairo, Egypt to share the Gospel and distribute Bibles.
With the current situation in the world, we have this very unique opportunity to present the TRUE God in this ancient Biblical nation. One of the greatest revivals in the Arabic World is taking place in Egypt. As a result, the Egyptian Christian Church is spearheading the training of missionaries to be sent across the Middle East. The Pastors of some of the major churches in Iraq, Syria and Jordan are of Egyptian origin.

I am writing to ask for your help in 2 areas. First and foremost, I ask you to pray for the success of this trip. We’ve already begun planning, getting passports, airplane tickets, etc. So, your prayers are extremely important to ensure that the Lord guides us in every step.
Next, I am asking for your financial support if you can do it. Some part of me cringes to ask for money like this, but on the other hand, I truly believe the Lord is directing this mission and your money will not be wasted. I need $1800 for expenses there (Hotel, food, transportation, interpreters, etc…) and my travel costs are approx. $1200 (airfare & entrance visa), this is per person. We also have a need for Bibles for distribution.
Your gift is tax deductible and checks should be made out to World Missions Alliance (or W.M.A.) and designated as missionary support for me. You can send it to me or directly to WMA office: PO BOX 1067 Branson West, MO 65737. You can also go online to https://rfwma.org/give/ .
Thanks for taking time to read this and thanks in advance for your support, weather in prayer, finances or both. When we return, I will share with you how you and I together sowed the seeds of the Gospel in Egypt.
