Dear Friends,

I want to send a quick note to say THANK YOU so much for your prayers and support as the 50th Cairo International Bookfair opens today!

There are big changes as the bookfair is taking place in a brand new state-of-the-art conference center in the outer suburbs of Cairo for the first time. It remains to be seen how this move will affect attendance.  In the past, it was an easy, inexpensive holiday outing for hundreds of thousands of people.  While busses have been arranged to help transport, it will be a more expensive venture and less convenient to the masses, encouraging a more deliberate attendance.  It should be much more secure and organized. 

Like last year, we’ll have two booths, with one of them especially dedicated to children, with fun activities and face-painting.  Of course, Kingo is there, welcoming children and their families to this colorful booth!

We ask for your continued prayers as usual, for Divine Appointments and opportunities to make the Scriptures easily available to many who might not have access otherwise.

As our main goal is not a financial return, a possible decrease in sales is not too worrisome.  However, financial reality is hitting hard this year, as the devaluation of the Egyptian Pound means that everything costs from 2 to 3 times more than previously.  Please pray for increased donations to provide a generous subsidy of the Scriptures and effective Bible Engagement programs.

We look forward to sharing an encouraging 2018 Annual Report with you in a few weeks.  Meanwhile, we thank you for your continued prayers as we anticipate two good weeks of interaction and outreach in this unusually beautiful location!

Grateful for your partnership with us,

Ramez Atallah
General Director
