AN UPDATE FROM EGYPT:
We received the following email from Rebekah recently:
Sorry I haven’t been able to email more, but I am loving it here. One of the translators, Nader, is SO good at animation! He gave me and another guy on our team a lesson in animation. It was so cool! He also showed us animaton he made for a Christian series and it looks like something that would really be in theaters. It was awesome! I really love it here. :) ….
Everything here has been really great but very busy. People in Egypt are really laidback so they don’t really care about being on time…sometimes they will be an hour late to pick us up. But the Christians are all like a close family…they eat together and talk together every night. It’s really cool. Yesterday we went to a small church meeting with about 20 people. I got to share my testimony and it was translated from Arabic into English. Then they sang a bunch of songs and talked in Arabic. It was so cool to be with them! Then afterwards I talked to a girl who was converted to Christianity from Islam. She told me her testimony and it was so cool. She talked about how she didn’t have love in her heart and then God gave her love. She also said God revealed Himself to her in a dream. Today we went to a really secret church meeting with people who had converted from Islam to Christianity. It was really secretive because if people found out they were Christians the people would get in a lot of trouble. I got to share my testimony with them and it was cool. One of the ladies said she had never met Christians our age (from America) and was really encouraged to see that we cared about Egypt. It was cool! I really love the people here. Tomorrow we are going to the pyramids and the Nile River. I’m excited. I love you! Rebekah :)
I think she likes it there! :-) Rebekah will be in Egypt for another week, so please continue to remember her in your prayers.
