Merry Christmas! What a wonderful way to spend our Christmas: in Egypt with Andrew & Nancy and our two granddaughters. Rachel was so very excited to see all the presents and also to see what everyone else received. She wasn’t too thrilled to leave it all behind to go to church, but she managed to survive.
After church we headed up to Coptic Cairo, a very Christian area of the city with many churches and crypts. Two of them claim to have been refuges for Joseph, Mary, and Jesus while they were in Egypt.
