The ‘House of Hope’ focuses on evangelism and discipleship — winning and teaching the lost. ‘King’s Kids’ works with impoverished children. They use sports to reach out to children and youth through a ‘City Sports’ ministry. They are bringing the love of Jesus to many rejected souls: orphans, street children, handicapped, lepers, poor and homeless and others who have no hope.
They ask for prayer for these people in need and an outpouring of God’s Spirit among these lost Muslim people. Peter and Miriam have four young children: Hannah, Elizabeth, Hunter and Sarah.
Dr. Rev. Saied Ibrahim – Egypt
Faith Church / Cairo
When Dr. Ibrahim began his ministry in Cairo, he vowed that he would, with the help and blessing of God, plant 50 more churches in Egypt to reach the lost. When he and his church reached 50, he set his goal on 100 and they are well on their way to seeing this reality and the evidence of God’s power.
Faith Church in Cairo has, in addition to church planting, a myriad of ministries. They have Bible schools which reach teenagers and summer camps for all ages. Recently there were 21 students who graduated from Faith Bible College and a revival with 1,600 attending where 390 received Jesus Christ as their Savior.
South Shores member, Stan Scholl, has visited this church and has seen this powerful witness for our Lord in Egypt.
