Recently the first graduates from our new Vocational Centre left to begin work as hairdressers. One of the biggest problems for women in this country is that there are very few short courses available for them to learn new skills so they can have a career and help support their families. The Centre is also a great place to help make true disciples for Jesus Christ.
Our School of Ministry continues to host an average of 40 male and female university level educated young people, who wish to be better trained so they can contribute to their respective local churches and communities. It is wonderful to observe them grow in confidence and in new ministry skills.
Please keep Egypt in prayer during these critical times in the Middle East. Pray too that our expanding ministries will help equip and empower the new generation of leaders that this nation desperately needs.
