onething Egypt - wrap up
onething Egypt - wrap up
It is good to be back in Kansas City! Our flight home was uneventful, but on the way back several of us began to feel feverish and sick to our stomach. We probably ate something contaminated in Egypt that our Western stomachs have not acclimated to like Egyptian stomachs have. I seem to be better today after several days of fever and the toilet being my best friend, however things are still not quite right with my intestines… The doctor told me I will probably be fine but to call him back if things got worse. But so many of you have been praying, and I believe I am getting healthy again because of those prayers! Thank you, and شكرا !
I am going to miss Egypt and so many of the great people I met there. I will surely visit Egypt again one day, and I hope that many of those that I met will be able to visit the States and IHOP-KC at some point in the future.

The onething conference in Egypt was perhaps the most attended onething outside of the yearly Kansas City conference. There were an estimated 5-6,000 attendees throughout the 3-day conference. According to our Egyptian brothers, it was probably also the largest gathering of young people from Egypt in the modern day. Our entire team agreed that the last night of the conference proved to be the “breakthrough” evening, where there was a freedom in worship, an increased anointing on the preaching, and a joy and sweetness of the Lord’s presence in the ministry times following. We’ve heard so many testimonies through word of mouth, email, and Facebook about dramatic healings, lives totally transformed, young people rededicating their hearts to God, and doing radical things like throwing away all of their secular music so that they can give themselves completely to Jesus. There was such a genuine hunger among these people for Jesus, and the Holy Spirit met them at their place of need. I am sure I speak for all of the team that we are so grateful that the Lord allowed us to be a part of such a historic event! The Lord is raising up a beautiful inheritance for Himself in Egypt.

Thank you to all who supported me in prayer during this trip! It was truly a life-changing experience for me, and I am certain that the Lord used me to minister to many and draw them closer to Jesus. As you have sown into me, this experience now becomes part of your story and your reward as well!
