Middle Eastern: Egyptian Outreach


"Walk like an Egyptian..ay oh...ay oh!" these are just some of the words from the popular song back in the 80's by the ?-I forgot already! Anyways, when I (Sal) think of Egypt, I think about the Pyramids and the movie "Ten Commandments"

UMM Connection

Salaam Milakim-Hello in Arabic! I (Sal) met 2 international students that lived in Egypt, whose parents are from Kuwait, and they shared some of their experiences there. This was probably the first interaction with someone from this region. Then just a month ago, I actually met a guy who was born there when I was in downtown St. Paul for the Winter Carnival: Ice Palace.

    From "Walking the Bible" (with Bruce Feiler-PBS), Feiler goes into St. Catherine's Monastery in Mt. Sinai, Egypt. Feiler shares about the "manna" mentioned in Genesis, which is from a tree in Mt. Sinai according to the area citizens..."manna-producing tamarisk trees".. Sinai & The bible (from Beodenhimer)

    Christians in Egypt killed


    A radical Egyptian terrorist changed from a murderous �Saul� to a forgiving �Paul� after Jesus Christ visited him in a soul-penetrating dream. This hater of both Christians and Jews set out to discredit the Bible, but instead, he was transformed when Jesus appeared to him and changed his heart. (in Arabic * 28:51 minutes)
