Day 3: "Wives, Honor Your Husbands" in Egypt

Posted January 31, 2014  by: Marc Glass |0 Comments

After the teaching sessions were over yesterday, we had the privilege of taking Samuel, Samira, and their three children out to dinner. Over the last few years, I have grown to appreciate, love, and respect this family more and more as I have grown to know them better. I spoke with Samira, asking her about the teaching from the conference and the ways in which she has benefitted from it. With tear-filled eyes in as good of English as she could find, she expressed to me her gratitude that we've ... Keep Reading

Day 2: "Husbands Love Your Wives" in Egypt

Posted January 30, 2014  by: Marc Glass |0 Comments

As I mentioned yesterday: marriage, family, and gender issues are increasingly confused throughout the world; the confusion is not just a western issue. In cultures like Egypt, where the majority religion is Islam, the proper treatment of women is a major issue. Like many places, many women are verbally and physically abused and often sexually exploited. Sadly, such atrocities are hidden behind a veil of secrecy and many women have no viable option for escaping the abuse that plagues them. In s... Keep Reading

Middle East Report: Trophies of Grace

Posted September 6, 2013  by: Marc Glass |0 Comments

As I look back over the last few years of working closely with church planters and evangelists in the Middle East, my mind is continually directed to God’s promises in Scripture which He will bring to pass concerning His people. Some of the things that I have seen and heard will forever be etched in my mind: meeting with small house fellowships where conversion to Christ is illegal ... seeing thriving groups of persecuted Christians ... eating with Christians that look impoverished by Western standards, yet gladly serve you their best. In all of these situations, these Christians’ hearts and lives contain a wealth of joy that is painfully absent in the materialism of the West. They are trophies of grace and demonstrations of God’s enduring help to all who hope in Him and call upon His name.... Keep Reading
