PARTNERSHIP

In June of 2019, Chase Oaks Church sent a team of five to Cairo to see some of the partners Bright Hope World (BHW) had been working with for several years. This is our typical process when we are looking for global partners we think may fit our global strategy of supporting and encouraging indigenous leaders who are doing great ministry and work in developing countries. While in Cairo, we saw was amazing people sacrificing a lot to make a huge difference in the lives of other poor in their own country.

Egypt, particularly the Cairo area, has some of the poorest of the poor we’ve seen in our global partners. There are more than 20 million people in greater Cairo trying to survive the strained economic environment brought on by the vast number of people and recent instability in the country. To say Cairo is overpopulated is an understatement. Many of its people are day laborers searching each day for the sustenance needed to simply support themselves and their families.

Fortunately, there are small groups of Christian brothers and sisters with huge concern for their own and for others who have yet to follow Jesus. The Christian population is highly persecuted in this area, living daily with a lack of income and homes due greatly to their chosen faith in a country where they are a significant minority. We saw church leaders and mission-minded followers of Jesus that experience the same hardships, but they do not let that prevent them from giving whatever resources they have to serve those even less fortunate.

As we embark on this journey with BHW and the people of Egypt, we anticipate great progress to be made over the next 5-6 years. Below are some of the specific strategies and projects we will have the privilege of supporting financially. Our sacrificial giving and their sacrificial work will have a very significant impact on the people to whom they are ministering, and we are very thankful to have a role in the outcomes.
