Our first ministry trip into Egypt was amazing. We were able to visit three major cities: Alexandria, Cairo and Luxor (Luxor was the site of ancient Thebes). We enjoyed ministering four times for the Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Alexandria, and also working in a medical clinic in the heart of Cairo, in view of the pyramids at Giza! This was an incredible opportunity to interact with the Egyptian people. We found them to be kind and generous, and many have become our friends. It was great to be able to work in some practical ways in the clinic. This site is built, literally, in the garbage-dump area, because the people’s lively-hood comes from separating the garbage by hand. They had pigs living in between the apartment buildings, doing their part of consuming all the food from the garbage. No it is not an ideal lifestyle, but that is where they are and we were so pleased to have the opportunity to join with our friends in ministering to them in their need.
