The Journey Begins!

Greetings Crossing Church!

Thank you so much for taking the time to hear from our ministry partner, Dr. Hany Keylada, last week.  We trust the information he shared gave you valuable tools to understand and answer Islam.  If you would like to contact Dr. Keylada directly, the e mail he shared is


We'd also like to thank you for committing to pray for our upcoming missions trips to Egypt and Kenya.  Over the next few months we will be preparing for our trips by praying and learning about effective cross-cultural ministry. The purpose of our trips is to learn what God is already doing through Egyptian and Kenyan Christians.  As fellow Christians, we will come alongside our brothers and sisters, encourage them and strengthen the bond between our church and their ministries. During this preparation time, we will also be holding various fundraisers and a prayer event closer to our departure date. Please stay tuned to this blog for updates.  If you would like to sow into either trip, please go to and pick which country you'd like to donate to.  For Egypt donations, you can designate money to a specific person, or you can designate it to "Team Egypt" via the Global Infusion website.  Please invite others to sign up for this blog by sending them to


Please pray for the following:

  • Fundraising
  • Team bonding
  • Open, teachable hearts during training
  • Our Egypt and Kenyan partners.
