Dear friends, please pray for us. I have to leave Egypt after tomorrow, but I can't leave with a heavy heart like this - I need to see my darling before I go...

Since I lost my job I have been coming to the church every single day. God heard my prayers - praise and glory to Him! Yesterday Ashraf called me and we had a very sincere conversation. He tried to comfort me, promised that we would keep in touch while I'm abroad. I have no words to express my gratitude to the Lord! He has really turned my darling's heart! He became so tender and caring, now he shares with me his secrets and plans again, I cannot thank the Lord enough for this miracle!
Thanks to all my brothers and sisters here, who keep praying for us. May God bless you abundantly. Please support us with your prayers in these difficult days.

God is working in Ashraf’s life as well. The reason of the most of our problems was that Ashraf always was too busy with his work and simply had no time to spend with me. I used to argue with him about it, but then I finally humbled myself and gave this issue to the Lord. I stopped complaining to Ashraf, but instead, I started to thank him for every moment he spends with me, for every small sign of attention. When some time later Ashraf told me that he thought to change his work, I couldn’t believe – he loved his work so much and he was so proud of it. But two days ago he told me he was seriously looking for a new job. I know it’s a hard time for him, I with to be closer now to support and encourage him…
So I have 3 prayer requests now: that Ashraf will find a good job that he wants, that I will finish my exams successfully and come back to Egypt, and that these trials we both are facing now will make us closer to each other. Thank you all for your support! Your prayers and encouraging words are so precious to me!

Today I heard from a Christian friend in Egypt. He astonished me with news that St Mary had appeared in some church in Cairo a week ago. He even gave me the link to the videos taken by those who were there.
And I remembered that Father in the church told us about some priest in Cairo who can cast the demons out of people. By chance I found those videos. It's scary to see, I was shocked and couldn't watch to the end...
But praise God! I believe He showed me these things today to help me increase my faith. We read about amazing miracles that Jesus and His followers were doing two thousand years ago... But look around! The same miracle happen today!
Dear brothers and sisters, please keep praying for me and Ashraf. I believe that our prayers have unlimitted power and I believe that he will change, that he will learn to love me the same way I love him and that we will get maried some day... And I will mention all of you in my prayers, too!

ASHRAF NEEDS OUR PRAYERS!
He faces some trials in his life... he has no job, he stays with his family in Cairo now, but he can't find any good job for him back to Sharm El Sheikh. He doesn't sound happy at all, and my heart is aching for him. I called him just to say Merry Christmas, but he was cold with me and said things to hurt me intentionally. I've been praying hard for months for his salvation and I've started to see the "good fruit" of our prayers, but I'm afraid this situation can turn him backwards...
I believe that our prayers can keep him away from any evil, break the cords of sin and bring him out of darknes into the light of our Lord Jesus Christ. I gave a promise to God that I will never leave him, no matter how hard it gets with him sometimes. But what can I do to deserve his salvation.. or even my own? It's a free gift that the Lord grants to those He chooses. So I just humbly beg Him for mercy. He is our Loving Father and He doesn't want any of His lost sheep to perish. I will do anything, but I will not let the devil to drag my darling back to the ways I've prayed so long to get him out from...
Please pray for Ashraf, that he will find a good job soon, so that he will start to seek the Lord in is life, that he will not push me away again, but start to appreciate our relationship more...

Praise and Glory to our Lord! Sincere thanks to everyone, who has been praying for me and Ashraf. May God bless all of you and grant you the desires of your hearts!
It took me a year of desperate prayers, fasting and tears, nights over my Bible and hard work on myself to restore our relationship that seemed completely hopeless. Now I cannot thank the Lord enough for this miracle! Now our relationship with Ashraf is like it was in the very beginning: he sends me touching messages, we chat and laugh on the phone, and every time I see him, I blush and get so dizzy – just like high school romance :-)
Ashraf is so wonderful, he has everything I ever dreamt to find in a man – he's extremely handsome, very polite, respectful and well-educated, and he had a kind heart. It's amazing, but I feel like we are one person divided into two halves – we have the same interest and same friends, we work in the same field and we even like the same food. I feel so happy and comfortable with him, and I would give everything and do anything to be with him always.
But every time it comes to a serious commitment, Ashraf gets scared and pushes me away from him. I am not to judge him, probably he has a reason to do so, maybe he had some bad experience in the past or something… But it really hurts me. I want so much to have a family – husband and children.
My dearest friends, please pray that soon we will finally get engaged!
[Aleona in Jesus, pray!
