Tour to Moquattam with the Cave Churches, Center of Love and recycling center (APE)
We have not been on a tour of Moquattam as a fellowship event for several years. So it is a real pleasure to look forward to this time. Actually, it was planned for last Friday, but the bus company postponed it due to the rain on Thursday causing the streets in Moquattam to become very muddy and too difficult to negotiate. There are many websites that describe them: http://www.amusingplanet.com/2013/09/the-cave-church-of-zabbaleen-in-cairo.html
We are looking forward to seeing the various Cave Churches and enjoy their history, beauty and setting. What a wonderful thing – to use what is available to make a church “building” where many can worship the LORD.
Next on the list is to visit the Center of Love where some HCC members volunteer their love and service to the disabled people. This has been such a blessing to many in the area. Please see their website for more information: http://www.centerofloveegypt.com/
And our final stop will be at the recycle center, APE (The Association For The Protection Of The Environment). Again, this is a case of the ingenious use of resources – what is available – by the Egyptian Christians who recycle so much of what is discarded by others. There are numerous websites that you can see if interested. Here are a few:
