“My experience in Egypt challenged my faith as the majority of the population was Muslim and the call to prayer was a daily reminder of the religion practiced everywhere around me. However, I also learned of the rich Coptic Christian tradition that has been there for two thousand years. The trip ultimately stretched and strengthened my faith. I feel that my faith can be more applicable now to more people, a more global faith or at least a better understanding.”
