In the summer of 2011 my brother and his family moved to Egypt...a long, long way from Georgia, USA. I have not seen my brother, his beautiful wife or my amazing niece and nephew since I waved goodbye to them on that hot and humid day over three years ago. In those days I was extremely excited for all of them and the adventure that awaited them. My brother is an amazing man that has lived an amazing life and moving to Egypt just seemed like a logical step.
As most of you know a lot of things have gone on in the great land of Egypt since 2011. Those things have been hard to watch from so far away not knowing exactly how those things are affecting my family. Thankfully, they have survived and are doing well. Our family here in the states have gone through some truly tragic events in that time frame though and it's been hard to be separated by so many miles.
I have recently happened upon an opportunity to travel with a team of volunteers to other regions of Africa and then Egypt...where I can see my brother and his family face to face and wrap my arms around them for the first time in years. It is my goal to jump on this opportunity but as a full time single dad that is fighting hard to make ends meet it seems like a long shot. I'm here now asking for help with travel expenses and the means to pay bills here at home while I am gone.
If you have any means to spare this holiday season I would truly appreciate it. The goal is a lofty one but any amount helps.
