The Joys of Parenthood in Egypt

The Joys of Parenthood in Egypt On a recent trip to Egypt I met Najah. Her story reminded me of just how important medical support is in this region and how thankful I am to the friends and partners of Joyce Meyer Ministries for making it possible.

Najah’s husband Samir works at a shop that sells cloth and they live in a two-bedroom flat. They have been married for 11 years and were not able to have children, even though they visited with many doctors. Najah visited our medical clinic in Egypt, which is funded by Hand of Hope. Through our clinic she was connected with a gynecologist and after going through treatment, Najah and Samir learned the joyful news…they would finally have the baby they longed for. Today, they have a healthy 6-month-old daughter named Mehra-El.

This family has received so much joy and happiness and their hearts are truly thankful to God for His blessings in their life. God has used this clinic to reach many who are suffering from sickness and to share the love of Christ with families just like Najah’s. Thanks to our partners and friends who help support this clinic – without it, Mehra-El may not have been born.

We do not need to strive for power or hope to have power someday; we have power now! The same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in us (see Rom. 8:11) and we can be quickened (filled with life) by that power. This is not a onetime filling that slowly drains out of us as the days go by, but we can be filled day by day and even moment by moment. We can constantly and continually experience God’s presence and power in our lives. When we belong to Him, there is never a time when His power is not accessible to us.
