Coptic Church Tour

In December I took a tour to see the Coptic Churches in Cairo. Here are a few of the pictures. I enjoyed this tour. The tour guide that we had was the same tour guide that took us to the Pyramids with Christopher.

Prayers for my best friend and her family.....

My best friend Angela more like a sister to me lost her brother Darrell this week. Please say a prayer for her and her family. This is the second brother that she has lost and I know that they are just struggling with the grief of losing two so close together.

Darrell a very kind heart and a beautiful spirit. I am so glad that we got to see him when we attended Paige's dance program right before we came to Egypt. I had not seen Darrell in years and yet it seemed that he had always been around like we all just belonged there just like any other day! I swear he had not changed at all. I could go on and on about stories about Darrell but want I want to say most is that each and every time I seen him no matter how long it had been he had a hug and always something nice to say. Angela is of course close to all her brothers and sister but her and Darrell were really close and I know that her heart is breaking. I know we always think we have more time with our loved ones but the truth is we just don't know so I hope anyone who reads this takes the time to tell family and friends that they love them. Don't just assume you can do it another day!

I love you Angela and I wish I was there with you. I love you for saying we can be half a world away and comfort each other! I KNOW that Darrell is in a better place! Thank God for that.

Missing that kid of mine!

Have not blogged in a while because my oldest has been here in Egypt with us. He is on his way back to the states. He had a great time and we had a great time showing all the great stuff we love about Egypt.

Today I am already missing him. So in a day or two I will share some pictures and get back to day to day life.

Making plans to go home................

We have been told that the contract for the second year has not been done and it at this point does not look like they are going to get it done. So as it stands right now we will be going home in July! It makes me sad but I know that if we are suppose to be here the contract will be worked out. There is a plan and I am okay with however it works out.

This has been the most amazing experience and we have learned so much in the short time we have lived here. Egypt was not one of those places that I had a desire to see sometime in my life, but I have to say that it has been amazing everyday here and I love living here!

I just don't have the words to describe what this experience has been like for me. What a wonderful people Egyptian's are. All I can say is this has truly been a blessing.

You can bet that if the contract gets worked out I will be putting that information on my blog.
