Revival is breaking out in Cairo, Egypt.
More than 7,800 people decided to dedicate their lives to Jesus at an evangelist event held by Dr. Michael Youssef’s Leading The Way ministry.

“It was an amazing experience,” Youssef told CBN News. “Past midnight, people did not want to leave and said, ‘We just feel the Holy Spirit here’ and it was a foretaste of Heaven. Just praising God.”
Youssef, the pastor of Church of the Apostles in Atlanta, Georgia and the author of “How to Read the Bible (as If Your Life Depends on It),” said dozens of denominations came together to put on the massive event that was attended by 17,715.
He said Egyptians are desperate for hope.
“I think there are many things that are going on right now. The war on the Northern border with Hamas, inflation is 40% in Egypt. People are really suffering and some are losing hope and they want something to hang their hope onto. They want to have peace and this is exactly the message I brought them. You can have peace in Christ, regardless of the circumstances and regardless of the surroundings, and it just resonated with them and I praise God for that because it was a simple message of the Gospel and the hunger was there,” Youssef said.
Youssef, who is from Egypt, said, “”The church is booming. It is amazing what God is doing. The evangelicals and Protestants may have been 250,000 or 300,000 back when I lived there 55 years ago. Now there are over 2 million evangelicals in Egypt and about 10 million Coptic Orthodox [Christians]. God is doing an amazing work and bringing people to Himself.”
He urged, “Please pray that God will keep that movement that was ignited to keep going for many years to come.”
