Are the Egyptian gods bound to Egyptian soil?  Or can they be worshiped from any place?  What is the text basis for your idea?

Many of the ancient Egyptian gods began as geographically localized deities, however over the course of Egyptian history They showed a tendency to extend Their influence over larger and larger expanses of land.  And in fact, in the Bentresh stela there is an interesting story about the daughter of a foreign king who became ill, and the presence of the god Khonsu was requested for her healing.  The king of Egypt authorized the transportation of a particular statue of the god to the foreign land, where the healing took place.  To me, this shows that the gods can indeed leave the boundaries of Egypt- and also that this extension may be facilitated by the use of divine images.  Add to this evidence the fact that the gods and goddesses are in fact being encountered by modern practitioners on almost every continent.  Since there are now practicing Kemetics and images of the gods in every corner of the globe, I don't find it at all surprising that the gods are actively engaged around the world.
