Many thanks to Church of the New Covenant

I have posted new photographs of my adventures with my family during their recent trip to Egypt. Darren (my brother), Martha (my mother), Teri (my girlfriend), David (Teri's dad), Scott (Teri's brother) and I toured Egypt from bottom to top. We travelled to Abu Simbel in the south and saw the colossal statues of Ramses II, which was a mere 40 miles from Sudan, to the beautiful Mediterranean city of Alexandria in the north. And we pretty much saw everything in between.

Thank you very much to Church of the New Covenant, my home church, which collectively raised a substantial financial going-away gift for my mother, who left after 26 years of service as organist and choir director. The gift enabled her to travel to Egypt and experience what it is like to live here, to experience first-hand what my year of service is about, and even do a great deal of touriing around the country.

The church gave a gift not only to my mother, but to me because I got to enjoy her presence here (along with my brother and Teri's family who all managed to be here at the same time). To my friends at CNC, I can't thank you enough for the amazing support you have given her over the years. Check out the photos and you will be able to see the awe on her face and see exactly what you provided for my dear mother. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for the amazing once-in-a-lifeime opportunity you gave her. Thank you!

Yours in Christ,
