Our ministry partner in Egypt is Initiative Ministry. Their goal is to establish new believers who are coming out of the majority religion in this nation. They help establish new small house churches, train believers in their gifts and equip men and women into ministry among their neighbors and friends. They work with those persecuted by the majority population of Egypt and help disciple the Muslim Background Believers.

This will be the first trip to Egypt for Water of Life. Norm Brinkley will be the leader. There will be a lot of team meetings as we prepare for this trip. In order to be culturally sensitive and well prepared for meeting with Muslims, we will be dealing with and discussing worldview issues in order to evangelize effectively.




DATES: April 25 - May 6, 2019

TRIP FOCUS: Evangelism, church planting alongside local leaders, story-telling, and house to house visits.

TRIP DIFFICULTY: A hot and dry climate, with harsh sun. Extreme poverty and a lot of walking. Not for the faint of heart.

TRIP COST: $2,700 - $3,000

All trip costs are approximate and subject to change due to variances in airfare, gas prices, the number of team members, etc. The Global Outreach Department works diligently to keep costs as low as possible.

The final cost will include everything you need for your trip: roundtrip airfare, transportation, in-country lodging & meals, insurance, visa fees and ministry projects.  Your $300 deposit will be applied toward the total trip cost.
