BTJ missionaries from China are living and working in Egypt to share the Gospel in the Muslim nation. Brother Yun, the Heavenly Man, was there preaching and encouraging missionaries from China last week before the attacks took place.
Paul Rav, a missionary currently serving in Egypt, was available for a live interview from Cairo over the phone only hours after the attack. That interview is available here:
Paul Rav gives an update from the field here:
