(Egypt) — Headlining today’s news, despite the welcome coalition forces are receiving in Iraq, many in the Arab world still view the liberation as western occupation. Because Christianity is linked to the west, International Needs Network‘s Rody Rodeheaver says that view is affecting their ministry in Egypt. “It heightens the tensions between Muslims and Christians. Our executive director from Egypt, he lives for instance in an apartment building with lot of other Muslims and they will not greet him any more as they meet each other in the hallways.” Despite that, ministry continues in Egypt. However, they are facing challenges with their Bible correspondence program. “He sends out over 4,000 Bible correspondence courses every month. And, (they’re) going into places that I can’t even tell you about on the air because they’re so sensitive. And, we’re running about $600 a month behind.” Five-thousand dollars is needed to keep this program running.
