The World is Always Changing

The World is always changing.  Countries I memorized in school no longer exist.  Rivalries I learned while watching the Olympics have long since been put away.  New countries have entered the arena as Super Powers.  This week we had a major change.  Within months two well entrenched leaders of North African countries have been forced to step down, brought down by the power of the people, the power of the press, and the mobilizing power of social networking sites.  It is a truly amazing thing to be seen, an amazing time to live.  I have no idea how the Egypt situation will resolve itself.  Personally things like military councils make me a little nervous.  I think these could be difficult times in Egypt.  I've been listening to reports from Tunisia and it seems like once the euphoria of victory is gone the path to a full out developed country with well feed, happy, employed people can be a daunting task for any new fledgling government to tackle, but I have high hopes for Egypt!  May they stay a jewel in the Arab world, God willing. 


  1. Yemen's next? I pray for thier success and for missioanries to go there someday--maybe your Ezra, maybe mine.
