Praising God from North Africa

egyptian women“Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.  For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”
Matthew 18:19-20

We are grateful to God that the two precious members of our North Africa team, Ila Swick and Amgad Wahba, arrived safely yesterday!  We were overjoyed to receive a brief update from them today:

  • Praise God for good rest and good health.
  • Praise God for the gracious hospitality of Amgad’s family.
  • Praise God for great communication with AWEMA, our ministry partner.
  • Pray for Ila and Amgad’s travel to the conference center on Wednesday, September 2nd, as well as the travel of the 30 women coming to participate.
  • Pray for an excellent start to their health and biblical training tomorrow afternoon!  They will study Lydia as an example of a strong woman leader, and teach essential health principles and biblical marriage lessons to enhance the ministries and lives of these women leaders.

As Jesus promised in Matthew chapter 18, we are confident that the LORD is with them!  And we also trust that He will bless their travels and training, develop a sweet connection with our North African sisters in the faith, and strengthen our ongoing partnership with AWEMA.

With love and joy,
