Children in Cairo enjoying the outreach

Outreaches to children in need

THE WORLD OUTREACH INTERNATIONAL Egyptian team recently visited one of Cairo’s biggest hospitals for children who suffer from cancer. Around 200 children, parents and staff attended our programme. It was emotional to see so many suffering children, the majority from Muslim families. Some parents asked that we pray for their kids. We said we were happy to and that it would be “in the Name of Jesus Christ.” There were no objections, so we laid hands on the children and prayed. At the end of our time together, with requests to return again another time, we gave them all some candy, juice and biscuits.

Two months later the team went on another outreach, this time to 170 children in a poor slum area outside Cairo, where kids often run around barefooted in the dirt. “Shoes for Each Kid” was the outreach theme. Many kids received Christ as Saviour. Before leaving we provided them all with a hot meal and gave each child a new pair of shoes!
