The November mission in Egypt was about healing and salvation – healing for the country, healing for the people, healing for the refugees and even healing for some of our team members.
The team consisted of 28 members from different parts of the US, Canada, Puerto Rico, Kyrgyzstan, Vietnam, and the Philippines. The youngest was 16 and the oldest 78. Each was uniquely and perfectly equipped for this assignment.
The medical team worked selflessly long hours and provided care for 318 patients. 41 people accepted Jesus as their Savior – a very impressive number for a Muslim country.
We visited 2 orphanages, ministered in 7 different churches.
One of the highlights was the long-awaited outreach for the 75 Muslim refugees from Syria. A nice, air-conditioned bus picked the families from the refugee camp and brought them to a beautiful country club. There by the sparkling swimming pool they enjoyed a meal, conversations, and games with our team. The medical team provided treatments and medications. They listened to our testimonies of God’s power and love, many of them afterwards had questions. Though we could not lead them in a salvation prayer, there was no doubt that many hearts were touched by the expression of Christ’s love. Our local pastors – Romany, Emad and Lilian- will continue to cultivate the seeds that were planted that day.
The powerful witness of God’s presence were miraculous healings during the medical clinic and in the churches. A lady who could not speak for months after a surgery was prayed by one of the doctors and began speaking. One of our team members was prayed for by the team and healed from an untreatable medical condition. Finally, during the intercessory for Egypt on the Nile rivers we symbolically threw salt in the waters and prayed for the healing of Egypt.
We believe that was God promised in the final verses of Isaiah 19 will come to pass. It is a privilege to be a small part of the spiritual healing for Egypt.
