It is going to be like a reunion after this long time away from all the churches and friends we usually see every year. As you all know because of Covid-19 travel restrictions, we were unable to travel to Egypt, Germany or most places in America. The last time we were able to be in Egypt was January 2020 with our group to evangelize. So, the regular flow of funds to support our widows and orphans in Egypt that we personally deliver has been greatly lacking. Yet, the widows and orphans still needed our help and The Bags of Hope had to continue to be delivered. Our workers in Egypt became very resourceful in their efforts to keep our widows and fatherless fed and provisioned.
God’s Widow’s Farm, that the Lord gave us 4 years ago, literally became a lifesaver for our widows and fatherless during this past years’ struggle. Although Brain Wills did deliver limited funds without leaving the Cairo airport and we were able to wire a small amount to our workers one time. So, when we discovered we would be allowed to travel to Egypt, with Covid precautions, we jumped at the opportunity. Even though we were limited in the amount of time we could spend in Egypt, Ron Teal one of our board members, Brian Wills, one of Cubit’s associates and myself returned to Egypt in late February 2021 with much needed funds. Thank you LORD!
The trip was successful far beyond our expectations, despite restrictions caused by the pandemic. Not only were we able to repay people who had loaned money to our workers to keep Bags of Hope going, but we were able to fund Bags of Hope for the next 6 months. In 2020 we distributed 12,224 Bags of Hope, to more than 1000 widows plus their children. Praise Jesus!
