Even Pagans May Turn to God

Within the book of Isaiah are many prophecies.  I found this one to be a little unexpected.

“In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the LORD at its border.  It will be a sign and witness to the LORD Almighty in the land of Egypt. When they cry out to the LORD because of their oppressors, he will send them a savior and defender, and he will rescue them.  So the LORD will make himself known to the Egyptians, and in that day they will acknowledge the LORD. They will worship with sacrifices and grain offerings; they will make vows to the LORD and keep them.  The LORD will strike Egypt with a plague; he will strike them and heal them. They will turn to the LORD, and he will respond to their pleas and heal them.”   — Isaiah 19:19-22

Most of the prophecies concern God’s chosen people being restored to the Lord.  This one speaks of a pagan, sun-worshiping culture who will one day join with the Jews in worshiping the one true God.  Has this happened already?  Or is it to happen in the future?  I need to do some research on this.
