RED SEA COVENANT
The International Executive Committee of Youth With A Mission met in the Middle East in April of 1992. The Lord spoke forcefully to us that He wanted us as a mission to be more involved in the Muslim world. In one prayer time, God broke into or time of intercession with unexpected direction to call together the leaders of the mission so that we might humble ourselves before the Lord. This came to us so unexpectedly, and with such a sense of God's presence, that we felt we were to "drive a stake in the ground" to claim what God had done in our hearts. We decided to give no room to the enemy to undermine God's direction to us or to place doubts in our hearts. We called this response to the Lord our Red Sea Covenant.
