Ahlan friends of Team Egypt! We are just 7 days away from our July 14 departure! It's been a busy June/July for us as we've been praying and preparing for what God has for us during our two week trip. Last month we joined together with THORN ministries and fed the homeless in Tampa in three different locations. This wonderful ministry has been walking alongside the forgotten of Tampa for over 15 years. They offer so much more than food... they are the hands and feet of Jesus, who abides with them even in their state of homelessness (in the blistering Florida heat or humid summer rain)
We will be partnering with similar ministries in Egypt who are walking alongside Syrian refugees, widows, and persecuted Christians in a country that can be hostile toward conversion.
One of the most important parts of our preparation over these past seven months has been prayer... and you are our prayer covering. We'd like to invite you to a special prayer send off on July 10th, 4pm at the Life Center at Tampa Campus. We will be praying for some specific needs while in country, and giving those who desire a chance to pray for our team and our trip. Question? Contact Philip at firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to see you on the 10th!
p.s. we will continue posting updates on this blog while in country, so stay tuned.
