This is just a quick post to say that Alexa and I were evacuated from Egypt on Monday, along with 1498+ other Americans. We just arrived at my mother's house tonight and are desperate for sleep. I hope to post more within the next few days.

Jeff remained in Cairo and will continue to remain there so long as he is needed. (He does not expect to evacuate.) We have every confidence in his safety and in the safety of the remaining mission personnel.


  1. Glad to hear you're ok, I was wondering if you'd be evacuated.

  2. Glad to hear it! We've been remembering the 3 of you in our prayers,

  3. Hi, Deborah. I have been following the Egyptian situation very carefully. It's been about 14 years since I was an ex-pat living in Cairo whose husband was there on a USAID contract. I am praying for Egypt very much as you suggested - and I will include your husband and his co-workers in my prayers.
