(Mural on a temple wall in Luxor, Egypt: conflict is nothing new...)
When we were in Egypt a few years ago, one of our guides asked us, since we were Americans, if we were Christians. We said that we were. "So am I," he responded. "Please pray for the Christians in Egypt. It is very hard and there is a lot of persecution here." As I read about the current conflict in Egypt, I pray that God will use this to further His glory and protect His people there!
