Egypt: Training Sudanese pastors in Egypt
In April, DPM Egypt hosted a 2-day conference for a special group of pastors and Christian leaders. The group consisted of 52 Sudanese pastors living in Egypt. They gathered for a time of prayer, worship and teaching.
There are tens of thousands of Sudanese refugees in Egypt, most of them seeking refuge from ongoing military conflicts in their home country of Sudan. Sudanese in Egypt often suffer discrimination and public harassment.
Being Sudanese already makes them a second-class citizen, but being a Christian as well makes them a third-class citizen, ostracised by both Egyptians and majority-Muslims alike.
The teaching was based on Derek Prince’ foundational studies about The Marriage Covenant and the Basics of Deliverance. The Lord was tangibly present, and the Holy Spirit was bringing healing, new insights and deliverance.
The next conference for these pastors will be held in July.
Pray for them and the Sudanese people that they serve in Egypt. They are our brothers and sisters, living in tough, challenging conditions, but they still love God and are pursuing Him.
