    Following a “Gentle Voice” to Egypt

    Jessica Boy, CRWM’s placement advisor for Canada, recently joined six others from North America on the Egypt Vision Trip 2017. She shares her emotions and experiences here. 

    Travelling to the Middle East was not on my radar. The modern-day stories of violence and atrocities against women that permeate North American news kept me away.

    “I came from a poor family,” said Pavlova, whose family lived in the basement of a house in the early years of her childhood.

    Visiting the Field: Jan and Calvin Davies

    Jan and Calvin Davies sat closely together in the back of a three-wheeled taxi known as a tuk tuk on the bustling streets of Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

    Up front, they listened as Ly Chhay, a CRWM missionary in Cambodia, began talking to the driver with passion in his voice. He stopped his conversation only for a minute to talk to the Davies. “I’m sharing the Gospel!” he told them, before quickly returning to his conversation.
