  Lost In Cairo - by Charles Middleton I've loved to travel since a mission trip to Argentina, but it was on a journey to Egypt where I trulywitnessed God's love .The sun was beginning to set over Cairo. The once bustling streets were clear of tourists, and theshops selling colorful pashminas, staid black burquas, pungent Middle Eastern spices and gleaminghookah pipes were shuttered. The Muslim call to prayer echo ed throughout the city. For hours, I’d marveled at the treasures of the pharaohs on display at the Egyptian Museum and then wandered,taking in the exotic sights, smells and sounds. But now I was worried. I needed to find the bus back to my hotel… and I wa s hopelessly lost.I love to travel. I was first bitten by the travel bug 65 years earlier, when I joined my church for atwo-and-a- half year mission trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina. I’d learned the language, embraced the culture and the people. Not long ago, Western Electric offered me a position in Saudi Arabia, and I jumped at the chance. What a unique opportunity to see more of the world! Now I was enjoying atwo-week vacation in Egypt. The museum, the pyramids  –   they’d long ranked high on my bucket li st of places to visit. I’d loved every minute.   Until now. My bus stop was at the museum, but I didn’t know which way that was. Nothing looked familiar. And the last bus was scheduled to leave soon. I approached a few strangers, but they didn’t understand— they only spoke Arabic. A chill passed through me. What am I going to do? Iwondered. How am I going get back to my hotel? From up the street, a lone couple approached. I could tell from their appearance that they weren’tAmerican. “Excuse me, do you speak English?” I asked them. “Where is the museum?” The couple  just looked confused. They had no idea what I was saying. Lord, I need some help here, I prayed. As the couple started to walk away, they began talking. It wasn’t Arabic. They had an unmistakable   accent, using words I recognized from a long, long time ago…   I hustled after them. “Buenos Aires?” I asked. The couple smiled.   “Si,” the man said. Yes.   It had been decades, but I remembered a bit of the language. “Por favor! Donde esta el museo?” I asked.   They pointed the way. I just made the last bus back to my hotel. During the rest of my stay, I heardmany languages spoken — Arabic, German, French — but I never heard another word of Spanish Guide Post   http://www.guideposts.org ~ Freee Book : The Miracle of Tithing ; by Mark Victor Hansen http://www.calameo.com/books/00127522718a6e0fef72d http://www.scribd.com/doc/87058897 http://www.librarything.com/work/11431http://books.google.com/books?id=zUznPQAACAAJhttp://www.worldcat.org/oclc/52788339 Free e Book : Super Power Breathing: For Super Energy, High Health & Longevity ; by Patricia Bragg http://www.calameo.com/books/0012752277f06d864fae7 http://www.scribd.com/doc/87058552 http://librarything.com/work/9216551http://books.google.com/books?id=l0LxOy_M-5YC http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/41437619  book  : Faith Like Potatoes ; by Angus Buchan http://librarything.com/work/2886793http://books.google.com/books?id=LUN2Ci003esC http://shalomtrust.co.za book  : George Muller: Man of Faith and Miracles ; by Basil Miller http://librarything.com/work/1547177http://books.google.com/books?id=QKweK4HIxX4Chttp://www.worldcat.org/oclc/21343056 TEACHING MILLIONS ~ Robert Raikes http://www.calameo.com/books/0012752276898915e2024 http://www.scribd.com/doc/87058598    book  : Jesus, a Farmer, and Miracles ; by Angus Buchan http://shalomtrust.co.za book  : Revival, A People Saturated with God ; by Angus Buchan http://shalomtrust.co.za book  : When Heaven Invades Earth ; by Bill Johnson http://www.librarything.com/work/586962http://books.google.com/books?id=AfU2GBFydqAChttp://www.worldcat.org/oclc/54360037 book  : How to Heal the Sick; by Charles Hunter http://librarything.com/work/953145http://books.google.com/books?id=TmxrPAAACAAJ http://joanhunter.org Your Local Foodbank   Needs YouPlease Help.
