Mission to Egypt

April 2000 - September 2001

Week of February 25, 2001

"It has been a privilege to work with the Sudanese. They are refugees from their own country and most of them speak a little English. They seem so hungry for the gospel and want to know more and more. To hear them pray brings tears to our eyes."

Presentation to Father Sarabamone at the Cairo Branch Building
Maadi Municipal Building

"We are told that this is to be a municipal office building. It faces the Nile and we see it often as we drive along that road several times a week. It has some architectural pillars that look like the ancient temples and is quite stunning to see. It would be interesting to see if they improve the area around it so it won't detract from the beauty of this building."
Western Desert (Sister Taylor for Scale)

"On our P-day yesterday, we went to the desert with some friends in their 4-wheel drive vehicles and with a GPS to guide us as we left the road. The favorite thing to do is walk with your eyes fixed on the
ground to see if you can find an arrowhead, a big pottery chard, a fossil, or an interestingly shaped rock."
Swarming Dikes

"There are some beautiful landscapes out in the desert, which used to be underwater at one time. The forces of nature have created some unusual formations which geologists love to tell you about."
