JOSH: Help reach the people of Egypt for Christ!

#2842680 - Josh McDowell Ministry

Josh is absolutely determined to get into Egypt...this time. You can understand why.

During his last trip there in 2013, he was actually refused entry because of his very visible stand for Christ. Egyptian security staff stopped him at passport control, escorted him to a holding room for hours, then ordered him to get on a plane and leave.

But five years have passed. And Josh feels compelled to try again. So our entire team is pushing ahead to stand for what is true. Even if Josh doesn’t make it in, the gospel and these resources WILL still be distributed by our ministry partners in Egypt.

Equip believers, pastors and Christian leaders in Egypt to reach truth seekers for Jesus in this troubled nation. Give today!

Why is Josh’s trip so important?
Egypt has a huge influence on the entire region — socially, politically and spiritually. So the groundwork our team lays there will open doors to Christian ministry for spiritual growth in other countries within the Middle East.

What’s more, Christians and truth seekers in Egypt need your support — now more than ever. Their churches are being burned, homes looted and leaders killed because of their allegiance to Christ!

But you can come alongside Egyptian congregations during these challenging days. Your gift will let our brothers and sisters in Egypt know they’re not alone AND equip them to grow in Jesus and share His truth.

Share the unchanging truth that shines in even the darkest corners
Egypt has many powerful radical groups that oppose Christ and His message of love and peace. But here’s just one example, in Josh’s words, of how the light of the gospel can penetrate even the darkest hearts...

The last time I was able to get into Egypt, I spoke at a church. In the first three rows were a number of men who sat quietly, just watching. No one told me I wasn’t supposed to, but at the end of my talk I gave an invitation to come forward and accept Christ. 

But no one moved. Everyone just sat there. Until one man stepped out of the third row and came forward.

The pastor of the church was sitting next to me. He actually started to shake. At the time, I didn’t know why. Finally, the pastor stood up and went to talk with the man. Soon after, a flood of people came forward to receive Jesus. 

I didn’t know this at the time, but that man was one of the top radical leaders in the area. His group opposed the gospel, sometimes viciously. They had probably come to break up the meeting. But on that day, he sincerely accepted Christ. And because he came forward, others gained the courage to come forward too.

What’s the lesson? People are hungry — no, starving — for the truth we can person and through resources like Josh’s books.
