As the situation in Egypt begins to find some stability, members of the ELCA’s Global Mission office in conjunction with our companions have determined that things have calmed enough for missionary personnel to return to their work in Egypt. Over the next few weeks the six missionaries will return are:
- Rev. Peter Johnson, Erin Odgers, seminary intern Paul Schick and his wife, Stephanie, who will return to their work at St Andrew’s Lutheran Church of Cairo and with the St. Andrew’s Refugee Services (StARS).
- Rev. Dr. Mark and Linda Nygard, who will return to their work at the Evangelical Theological Seminary.
Please keep them and their families in your prayers as they begin to find how God will continue to use them in this new reality.
