Update on Egypt

Lest we all forget our 2 and 1/2 hour wait at the Egyptian border with Israel this past Friday, several news sites are a flutter with the detention of Sam LaHood, the son of Ray LaHood, US Secretary of Transportation. Mr. LaHood was detained at the Cairo airport on Saturday evening (the same day we left Tel Aviv), for his connections to a NGO working to promote democracy in Egypt. Let’s all pray for his immediate release and to thank God that our travel was not similarly impeded. Although our time in Egypt was short, I found the Egyptian people to be wonderfully kind and welcoming. I hope that these traits will prevail in their transition to a new era of government.
