Thousands Gather for Revival in the Heart of Egypt, Despite Threats

Peter Wooding : Apr 20, 2016  Assist News Service

"By God's grace, I pray this event will serve to fan the flame of spiritual revival that is already occurring in this region." -Dr. Michael Youssef

(Egypt)—[ASSIST News] Despite the threat of government protests, thousands of people went to hear Dr. Michael Youssef preach at Kasr el Dobara Church in Cairo, Egypt, this past weekend, with hundreds of people giving their lives to Christ during this three-day evangelistic event. (Photo via ANS)

Dr. Youssef, founder of global outreach ministry Leading The Way, was born in Egypt, and he returned to Kasr el Dobara Church, the largest evangelical church in Egypt, with the hope of encouraging a spiritual renewal there.

During the first evening of the event, a heavy military presence was outside the church bracing themselves for government protests in Tahrir Square following a recent government decision. However, throughout the weekend, approximately 5,000 people still came to hear Dr. Youssef preach a Gospel message on salvation in Christ and victory over sin and addiction, with millions more watching live via satellite television. At least 500 people responded to Dr. Youssef's clear invitation to salvation.

"Over the last five years, the people of Egypt have seen extreme civil unrest unfold in their country," Dr. Youssef said. "Since 2011, the nation has endured tumultuous events—the bloody uprisings of the Arab Spring and two presidents overthrown. This church—and many more across Egypt—began crying out to God 24 hours a day to bring peace and justice to their nation. In many ways, God answered their prayers.

"By God's grace, I pray this event will serve to fan the flame of spiritual revival that is already occurring in this region."

As Leading The Way with Dr. Michael Youssef continues to reach the Muslim world for Christ through 24/7 Biblical programming, personal discipleship, and practical help for persecuted Christians in the region, many are responding to the Gospel message even in the midst of political upheaval and global crises.
