Campaign for Egypt

Hello everyone,


Thank you for taking time to read this. If you feel led to bless me as I raise money towards this theological course abroad the vast land of Egypt, you would be helping cover the flight, hotel, the tour guide, food, my deposit, and insurance. I have already covered the fall course, and my books, and I am in the process of getting my passport renewed. The total cost I am raising is $3500.00 for some cushion in case anyone does not come and the price shifts upward. The current total cost we are given to pay is $2865.00 for what I have mentioned above, as the cost is normally $3575.00, but I received a scholarship to cover $708.00 of the total cost. I will be leaving 28DEC2018 and coming back on 11JAN2019.



What we will be doing:


This course introduces the rich religious heritage of Egyptian civilization, from its Pharaonic origins, through centuries of Christian majorities, to its current Islamic identity. By traveling to the Arab Republic of Egypt, we will directly experience Muslim culture as the context in which minority Christian communities practice their faith. Our class will visit numerous Pharaonic, Christian, Muslim, and (historically) Jewish places of worship in the greater Cairo area and in Egypt’s stunning archeological sites at the southern environments of Luxor. We will witness the grandeur of Islamic civilization in Cairo’s medieval mosques and modern monuments. We will discuss the tumultuous history of Jews in Egypt while touring Cairo’s historic Ben Ezra Synagogue. We will examine Christian monasticism in the place of its origin at the Wadi Natrun and in the Greco-Roman history of Alexandria. Site visits to numerous Christian churches­, including All Saints Anglican Church (with its Sudanese refugee congregation), will expose us to a diversity of contemporary Christian practices in Egypt.




Payment Options:


Thank you again for taking time out of your day to read this. If you would like to be a part of this theological study abroad with me and partner with me financially, feel free to email me with any questions you may have. All of the finances will be deposited into one account for the trip and documented so that you know where your money is going, whether you want to use this for your taxes. If you are writing a check, write it in the for section as; Trae’s Egypt course abroad. If you have any questions feel free to reach me at your earliest convenience. Thank you! My 500.00 deposit is due by October 15th, so if you are looking at a deadline this is my first one, and the rest will due before the departure, but I am unsure of that deadline as of right now. If you would like to hand me cash or a check in person, I live in Charlotte, NC and would love to meet you and tell you more about the reason to why I am heading to Egypt and any details that give you more understanding to your financial support towards this international study along Wake Forest University School of Divinity. Thanks Again!
