In 1905, a small group faithful Christians boarded a steamer ship traveling from New York to Egypt. One member of the group, Marietta Simpson, wrote: “On January 14, 1905, our missionary party left Indianapolis…for a land that God had called us to that we knew very little about, except what we had read in the Bible of the land of Egypt, but we were sure God was calling us and we were glad to obey His call.” Marietta, along with the Glen family, Della Hugill, and many others would spend their lives extending the Gospel in Egypt.
Thanks to their labors, the ministry continued to develop throughout the years and a Bible school was started in the 1920’s. For around 100 years Faith Wesleyan Theological Seminary has been preparing Christians from the Middle East and North Africa for ministry.
It’s exciting to see how God continues to lead and bless the ministries in Egypt and we’re happy to pass on this report from seminary president, Samir Fouad.
Greetings to you in Jesus’ precious name, wishing all things are well with you.
We praise God for the graduation ceremony of the Faith Wesleyan Theological Seminary on Thursday, the 20th of July. We had 11 graduates this year (a young man from Sudan, a lady from Palestine, and nine young people from Egypt).
We will begin our new school year on the 7th of September. We will have the first and second class in the new building in Oboor city (about 40 kilometers from our location in Shoubra). The seminary will be totally in Oboor city in 2025.
We need prayers for the students, faculty, and staff, as well as for the financial needs.
God bless you and your ministry.
