Egypt Trip: Day 2, Saturday

Egypt Trip: Day 2, Saturday



After breakfast on Saturday, Marilyn provided the travelers with spiritual nourishment and gave an encouraging word to start them on their day. She also prayed over their hands in preparation for Sunday’s service.

Tours for the day included visiting the Egyptian Museum where everyone was fascinated by mummies and tombs, and the golden mask of King Tut’s sarcophagus.

A particular point of interest was the tour guide who discussed Joseph and his impact on Egypt. Egyptians credit Joseph for saving the whole region, not just Egypt, from famine.  Some of the tourists also visited the city of Memphis, which was the first capital of Egypt. While in the area, they saw Saqqara, where the oldest pyramid, the Pyramid of Djoser still stands. That pyramid was built around 2600 B.C., and due to its age, Jesus, Moses, Joseph, and Abraham could have possibly seen it as well.
