Mission to Egypt
April 2000 - September 2001
Week of November 26, 2000
|Thanksgiving in Cairo.
"We had Thanksgiving dinner with an Egyptian/American family last night. It is a tradition the American husband has continued with his family. He cooks the turkey, but his wife does most of the rest."
|"He was raised LDS in Los Angeles but has been a member of the Coptic Orthodox Church now for 17 years. We
work with him in the English program he has set
up for their young people."
|"All of us spoke English except his mother-in-law which made it more comfortable for us. But we still have a hard time following what they say in English."|
|"He asked me to bring pies
which is something he hasn't been successful at making. He was really thrilled to have some real pumpkin pie with Cool Whip. I made three pumpkin and three apple which I left for them. There were a total of 15 of us, so I'm sure they can go through those in no time at all."
