Tuesday morning, everyone gathered after breakfast for fellowship, praise and worship, and to hear a word from Marilyn. She taught out of Job 3:7-9 about how the Bible gives us examples of how to succeed and not give up. That afternoon the ship set sail, and the group enjoyed floating leisurely on the calm waters of the Nile.
They loved the view of the river banked by papyrus reeds, with a handful of goats here and there, and an occasional crocodile.The experience sparked imaginations to ancient times when the Nile served as a means of transporting the pharaohs and Cleopatra and from it, Moses was drawn. The ship stopped briefly at Kom Ombo, an agricultural town in Egypt famous for its temple. After a walking tour, everyone set sail again to Edfu where they docked for the night.
