  Egypt 
Description
Boasting one of the oldest, continuous civilizations in the world, Egypt is now an Arabic republic with a distinctive society and culture of its own. Said to be a gift of the Nile River, it is navigable for most of its length. Egypt also has a second waterway— the strategic Suez Canal. Mostly Muslim, Egypt has recorded a decline in Seventh-day Adventist membership—although the church is recognized as a Christian church. The average age of members is above 40 years. Despite growing pressures from Islamic fundamentalists, Nile Union Academy and primary school—one of the largest such Adventist schools in the world— sees baptisms from among their student bodies. Adventist World Radio provides the major outreach in the Arabic language.
