Egypt 2009: On-call in Egypt has come to an end.
Posted by Egypt Team under: Egypt 2009.
The trip may have ended yet the memories and changed lives will continue. We were blessed serving Egypt!
Supernatural! We felt and saw the supernatural hand of God in Egypt. We were a team of eleven women and worked and lived together ten days. There was not a cross word, no disagreements between not one. Our prayer and devotional time words can not describe. Our team was so efficient and team oriented that by Thursday we added African Hope high school and faculty and screened them as well. God met us in Egypt andwe felt untouchable. Two of the women had dysentery with high fever. They started taking Cipro and we prayed over them. The next morning they were well enough to go and keep working. God was so faithful to us.
I would just like to share about the last few days in Egypt. We did not have interet access easily available to us. I apologize for not being able to update you all everyday. Up to the last day we were serving Egypt.
In Garbage City there was and orphanage that some visited. We were not allowed to give medical care to the children there. We were allowed to go and love on the children. Nadine was able to visit on friday with Deborah our doctor on the trip. Nadine worked with two children with cerebral palsy. She was able to implement with the workers some tips through play and feeding that would help the motor skill development of these children. Nadine is a physical therapist for special needs children here in the states.
Our serving Egypt ended saturday at Displaced Learning Center in Garbage City. Even though that night we were to fly back home. We were up and out by 730am and headed to Garbage City. We screened around 100 students and faculty. Sheila S. taught her last class of Basic Life Support to the faculty. This class was a little different. They did not have an EMS to activate for help. There is not an ER around the corner that they could take the patient to. We arrived back at the convent around 4pm. Last minute shopping, cold showers, and packing to do. The bus would arrive at 830pm for the airport.
The on-call team met one last time for devotions at 730pm before our departure. We read Psalm 24 and prayed individually for one another. It was a powerful time of fellowship and whorsip with the Lord. I want to leave you all to ponder these verses. Psalm 24:3-5 “Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteouness from the God of his salvation.” We thank you for your support and prayers while in Egypt they were felt.
