This year I taught an intensive course at the Evangelical Theological Seminary of Cairo, Egypt, on the book of Proverbs and Arabic wisdom and how to employ them to have impact in our churches and societies.

One evening I took a walk on the streets surrounding the seminary. On my left, I passed by the Italian hospital, the Greek hospital, then Ain Shams hospital and couple of private medical practices. On the other side, there were several military sites, including the main training site for watchdogs and drug dogs! During my time in Cairo the war on Gaza was still blazing with homes being destroyed and civilians being wounded and killed. I thought how much the children of Palestine and Israel are in need to live healthy and secure lives.
