Travelling to Egypt

I’m going to Egypt from June 11 – 23 to watch my first Bishop Ordinations at the Cathedral in Cairo. I will probably come back burnt and emaciated after losing 50lbs (Joke… you must know the story). Anyway pray for me and those of you who need anything from Egypt let me know and I will do my best…
